Official MoMc Review
Normally I wouldn't have left a review, but since you submitted this movie into a competition I am obliged to provide you with my assessment.
Description of the movie is excellent. The description you sent in to tell us what your film about was well thought out and provided us with a lot of information. Unfortunately this was not an essay contest. Your film didn't really portray what you wrote about.
Plot/Storyline: I didn't really get any plot or storyline from the images that graced my screen. I know what you were trying to get at but it did not get translated to the viewer in the manner you wanted. No character development, was also a little hard to pick out the main character but I think i found him.
Editing: Make sure to fill all the screens and backdrops you had the green screen show up in one of the scenes. The scenes were not presented in a way to allow a cohesive story to be obtained. You did have one random subtitle - for the ship on autopilot. The music was played in the background and did not play an integral part in this film.
Pacing: Because it was hard to follow , or find, the main story pacing was hurt.
Overall: The main reason why this film is hard to follow is because without any kind of direction it all appears to be random images displaying the different scenes which are available. If you added subtitles to this movie, it would help clarify and explain what is going on in each scene and greatly improve the viewer's ability to follow the movie and improve your overall score.

** MoMc SCORE = 2.0 **
I have to agree regarding this being a demo and not a movie with a plot. Lionhead did a wonderful job with the S&E package, and you did pick out some notable scenes, and moved the camera around to give us a great view of the new game resources. But there's really not much else to rate here, other than the tech demo part.

**This is a Review for MOMC**
*MOMc Score= 0.0*
At the end of this film, i watched it again. I thought that maybe my audio wasn't picking up the voice because there weren't subs. I didn't know anything that was happening except the annoying alarm that closed out the film. You used SE more than needed. The whole film was a tech demo that showed action unfolding with Free Camera. But the elements of a plot were not there
and i really looked, honest.
After watching the film i didn't know how to write a review of a film that was only some action shots strug together to film a tech demo that taught me something i already knew. My review will be short and i won't bash you to much because its obviously a young film, overall i'd have to say that before you submit your movie to a serious review group try to work out the kinks with it, having a few films nobody knows just to practice isn't unheard of. My advice is to look through the forums and learn from the greats about the most basic filmaking principles, i hope this tidbit of advice can help guide you through your next film production
