Check out this movie I made

If you're bored and looking for something to watch, check this out!

My buddy and I recently made a film using our XL1s, Premiere 6.5, After Effects 5.5, and a tiny tiny bit of Lightwave.

Most of the stuff you'll see here, however, is practical fx - we built and shot all sets, props, and miniatures from scratch using spare parts and junk we found in the trash.

Here are some screens:

Anyway, the movie's called "The Siberian Farce", and it's about a crazed merc for hire who has to save the world from a Soviet missle. Enjoy!

That movie rocks, plain and simple. I'm a big fan of anything with ninja, and that movie has all kinds of ninja :).
On a more technical note, it was great. You did a great job building suspense/intrigue before revealing what was going on. Also, excellent job on the props, sets, and effects... (was that a t-shirt ninja inspired facemask http://www.houseofninja.com/lessons.php?)

"The Siberian Farce" is definately going into my "good movies" folder. Great job. Very funny.

Great work! I love it. Very creative and guerilla style. Man I am a sucker for anything like this. Also watched Operation Theta and that too was very cool!

I have bookmarked your webpage and look forward to more work from sundevil.

The props, CG and sound kick arse. Too bad you couldnt use a DVX.

Personally, I felt it to be overall humorous ,and obviously some good effort went into it. But I felt like after a minute, the film just drug on and on. But the end redeemed itself and I couldn't help but chuckle. The end is what definitely made it for me.

As for people saying it reminded them of Outpost Theta... I personally did not like Outpost Theta AT ALL... This one, though a bit sluggish at times, was worth the watch.

tastefully done.
One suggestion though...
The end. I think you can afford to drop the home videocam "recording" text and white frame. It's obvious and should work without it.

cheers
