Film Description
This is my first try, from a non native english speaking person, to make a movie with VO. The Music I used is free for use and was done by http://tmws.themoviesplanet.com/index.php
The Set editing was done by: http://themoviesplus.com/
If you want to see the "Santas Reporter" Article In good quality go to: http://www.phsoftware.de/SC-OL.jpg
As to XxSaundyxX: I had to decide to choose between comedy or action and I thought that action would fit it more than comedy. so it's a ACTION-COMEDY.

It was an alright film. Music was nice. Custom sets were used well. I did find the voice over hard to understand at times, but I can hardly dock you points off for that since you still managed to get the point of the film across.
funniest part: "Cavewoman -ooga ooga ooga. Santa - kay."

I liked it, I must commend you on your excellent flowing VO (it must be very hard to do a VO in another language). VERY WELL DONE! Great music which is different!

I liked this movie. Although I would love to give you five stars, I felt that I couldn't hear some of the dialogue at times (probably due to the language barrier, but it was still very good for a first try). I would recommend placing subtitles when you speak to better understand some of the dialogue.

Otherwise, keep up the great work.

The vo was nice, and you did well, but subtitles would have helped a bit, if you were unsure of your accent. Nothing wrong with using subtitles and voice. Story could have been better. You get 4 stars

I understood everything you said even though the you weren't that good at english. The story was funny, and what Santa became afterwards was even funnier. But the last sentences made me feel a bit.. Well I don't know, but I think it was also because of the music that fitted into the mood.

Good job!

the dialogue was lost a lot of the time and subtitles would have pushed this up to a 5 star but the story/movie was good just the dialogue ruined it

I missed some of the dialogue due to hard to understand VO, but besides that it was great. Nicely done. Try adding subtitles in the future, it will help a lot.

Posted on March 16, 2006
- holdmykidney

nice little idea. Good use of custom backdrops for the newspaper.

I would encourage every non-english studio: do the VO in your native language and use english subtitles if you want to communicate to english speaking audiences. I'd much rather hear a confident performance in your native tongue than be distracted by you struggling for the right word.

It was alright. It wasn't that funny, and I couldn't understand a lot of the vo's.

VO was okay as was the music. Some editing issues - there's a millisecond look at the caveperson then a pan towards them - or was that deliberate? Subtitles would have helped with some dialogue. The war bit was good - a nice plea for war to end. Santa's elves getting fed up because of lack of pay was pretty good too. I'm writing my wish list now santa - I believe.

The VO was very hard to follow. I always enjoy movies spoken in the director's native tongue, with english subtitles. I think if you'd try that next time, you'd have a more successful movie.

I wish I could have heard the dialogue. I turned my volume up all the way and still couldnt hear anything. So I really couldnt follow the movie.

A good movie you have created here however reading your about section, I thought it was an action-comedy....ok, I saw afew action within the movie but I felt the comedy was missing and at time, it wasn't entertaining to watch. A great attempt at doing a english-speaking movie as I know its not your first language so good VO on that and the editing was good. I could see where you were going with the storyling but as other reviwerers mentioned, it needed more "entertainment" factors to it, otherwise a good xmas movie. Keep it up!

It is always funny to hear the accents in VO's (I really do). Nice effort. Nice editing. The script was not to intens.

It's much better though than my first try :-)

- EdWoud

Could be more entertraining

Posted on January 24, 2006
- Deikon

A pretty good effort. Felt like it dragged on, VOs were a bit tough to hear or understand. Maybe go for a different angle in those regards. Perhaps use your native language with the assistance of english subtitles. It'd probably be easier on your part as well. Keep at it!

Posted on January 23, 2006
- shamsael

You're english isn't too bad, but the accent is a huge problem. No offense intended. I had to replay a few parts to understand what was being said. What's I got passed the awkward accent, it made enough sense, though.

It takes courage to do voice overs, especially if English is not your native language. But it was still a bit random and hard to follow the story. Subtitles would really help.

I loved the movie, but didnt think Santa should have turned to killing and theft to support himself, maybe another job say something in toys.

Good movie, i love the idea of santa robbing banks and getting hit by a car. the VO was smooth but I had to have the volume all the way on my computer to hear it though. That keeps me from giving it 5 stars.

Nicely told story from Santa's perspective. Good use of custom background art. I got a chuckle from santa's side jobs. The audio was a bit low but you did a good job with your english ;) Keep up the good work.

Started off good, but got a little bit strange over time (Santas other jobs?).
The VO may have been louder but I could understand them. Probably add subtitles in the future to reach a bigger audiance.

It seems that all movies are having the same problem with the dialogue, in fact, I myself am experiancing that problem, so I can't mark you down for that, and everything else was excellent. I can't believe that you were doing the VO's in a different language!

Posted on January 8, 2006
- skarsten

Voiceover volume was far too low - I couldn't make out the vast majority of the dialogue... and as a result, I had no real idea what this was even about. In addition, a little effort needed to be made to make the characters sound less alike. That also made the dialogue hard to follow, as it's difficult to tell who is speaking.

If I could understand it, it probably would have been a three or four star film, depending on the content. But, alas.

Posted on January 8, 2006
- hutchim

I am afraid the v/o was far too quiet.
It was good.... but hard to follow what was going on when you couldn't really hear!
and... SANTA ROBBED A BANK. Every single christmas film has santa robbing a bank.. not funny! and removes all the originality.
You are very good at english however. :)

Pretty good there! Your VO, I must say, is not bad at all. Not only that, I noticed that your cutting made for a very paced movie, in a good sense. Very fluid. The only thing that kept me from giving 5 stars is that, well, I have just watched too many Xmas movies, and I cannot give any of them 5 stars unless it is an extraordinarily classic. So blame, it's me.

Are you from Germany? Dass war prima!

Well done. Just too bad you didn't use subtitles. It's not because you're bad voice actor (much better than me), but sometimes it's a bit unclear what you're saying. Nevertheless, a good movie. I especially liked the music. Keep up the good work.

A good story. Liked the bit with the cave woman.

Wasn't so keen on when he became a contract killer and a dancer. Just didn't fit in with the rest of the story (for me at least). I think something more mundane would have been more appropriate.

Posted on January 4, 2006

A very different movie. Nicely edited. The VOs vere a bit unclear at times, so I would suggest adding subtitles. Cool how you made that cave-woman though!

Hey philnate. Zufällig hat mir RT deinen Film zugeschanzt. Tja was soll ich sagen - ein guter Film, aber leider waren die Voiceovers zu "schwach". TRAU dich doch mehr ! Mach Filme in deutscher Sprache mit englischen Untertiteln ! Ich hab auch zuerst gedacht ich muss unbedingt Englisch reden wenn ich Filme mache. (siehe "The Sweeper") mein erster Film. Alles Quatsch. Und geh aus dir heraus beim sound recorden. Ich steh meistens auf und beweg mich sogar. Wenn du sitzt wird deine Lungenkapazität eingeschränkt und die Performance ist schwächer.
Ansonsten ein guter Film, die Story hat mir gefallen ich hab nur leider nicht immer alles verstanden weil du oft leise warst und dein englisch doch etwas eigentümlich ist. ;)

Hoffe du nimmst mir nicht krumm das ich ehrlich bin zu dir und dir keinen 5-star vote schenke.

Weiter so...nur mit mehr "Authentizität". Dann bin ich mir sicher, wirst du tolle Filme auf den Markt werfen.

I agree with basically everyone else in that the movie is great other than the language barrier issues. Good story, scene structure, and flow and a good piece of music to complement it. Good job.

The only problem I had with this film was with the audio being too low. I would advice you to just speak your native language and instead use english subtitles. I think using your native language makes it have more power. But it was really good english. Overall it was entertaining good job!

A nice narative which doesn't drag. A good film. But what worked and failed at the same time was the voice over. You show you're English skills and you do very well. But sometimes its confusing to understand what you say. I would have prefered German VO with English subtitles. 4*

cavewoman bit was the funniest, the VO quality was excellent, very fluid and level sounds. Even tho' I could not understand it all, it was great VO. My only 2 requests are to add subtitles, and try to get out of the monotone VO feel, but if that was what you were trying for, excellent!

It was an alright film. Music was nice. Custom sets were used well. I did find the voice over hard to understand at times, but I can hardly dock you points off for that since you still managed to get the point of the film across.

This was a solid flick, and I was leaning toward 5 stars (even with the sometimes low volume voice overs), but Santa's turn to the dark side, even briefly, kind of ruined the message for me.

Lots of good stuff here, with my absolute favorite being Santa talking to the cave woman in her own language - it was well edited and well written.

A good effort, and other than my distaste for the brief plot switch, a well-done movie. Good luck in the competition.

I love this movie, but is that Santa with the weird accent?

Nice, I feel the same way about the subtitles. I myself am going to do that if i ever speak.. not sure if I will though :) Thanks for the links to props and stuff.

A Santa Claus, your story touches my heart. Why not a job at McDonald's?

I liked this movie. Although I would love to give you five stars, I felt that I couldn't hear some of the dialogue at times (probably due to the language barrier, but it was still very good for a first try). I would recommend placing subtitles when you speak to better understand some of the dialogue.

Otherwise, keep up the great work.

Very nice movie. Your English is very good and as your first VO, I'm VERY impressed at your diction. You'll get even better with more practice when you try to do voices of different people one day. Good luck with that. Excellect story, casting, music, scenary, action, lighting and camera work, costumes and theme.

Nice job. I was going to say type sub-titles, but the snow scenes would block the white texts. Some nice editing there.
