My first film posted on The Movies Online - even though I've had the game for a couple of weeks. My first two efforts were thwarted - the first was incredibly ambitious (who knew you couldn't have nine leading cast and a runtime of 90 minutes) and my second is beset by bugs (the random engine noise and sound bugs you're all familiar with) plus my lead actress for the voice overs needs a bit of encouragement. She's worth waiting for, though.
Anyway. My first uploaded film...
This is The Reanimator. It's based VERY loosely on the H.P. Lovecroft stories about Herbert West, the Re-Animator. In this version, Herb West and Randy Carter are two students at Miskatonic High School attempting to raise the dead!
It runs over 14 minutes long and the VO work took a full day to 'assemble.' I know I won't make any friend here, but I think the time for "The Movies" movies which are posted online WITHOUT VO to be docked a star. VO is bloody hard work. Mine was at least 50% of the effort put into the film. Anybody who doesn't put VO in their films is, as far as I'm concerned, avoiding half the job. Recent films like King Kong, Bird Flu and Oblivion have really raised to bar as far as entries here go, so if you're going to upload a film, make the effort and put a VO in it.
Anyway. hope you all enjoy. I enjoyed making it, but it was a lot of hard work!
