Film Description
In a short amount of time, I needed to come up with a new NWN character, concept, portrait, outfit, etc. So, um, after a short panic attack later, I ended up creating a movie to facilitate the process and laugh about the experience with Bob too. I emailed the final draft to Charissa in time for Tuesday's game. :)

It took Bob and I about 30 hours from the moment Charissa contacted me to make this movie (of course, we slept, ate and took care of events in life too).

For those unfamiliar how to view in full-screen mode, hit play, and after it's done buffering and about to play, you can right click the film and select options such as full-screen, play-speed, volume and other features. There are also other features that may be available in full-screen mode such as windows media player.

Mods used:
(Jenniza) Sally Fast's costume by Rogue @ 8EyedBaby
long applause sound FX by www.romt.com
I believe that several of the rest of the items can be found in the prop shop.
If I am mistaken about any of these, I apologize.

Cast:
Jenniza - Jenniza
Mister Bob (the devoted husband) ??? theycallmemisterbob
Out of breath lizard guy - theycallmemisterbob
12th level screechy-voiced demi-lich ??? theycallmemisterbob
Scriptwriter at end ??? Jenniza (heavily electronically augmented VO w/ Audacity)

What a fun movie! I love NWN - still have NWN 2 lying around here, waiting to be played.. (TM is distracting me too much!;)) I especially loved the beginning of the movie - the dialogue was great, and I loved how you took up his suggestion, being yourself in a slightly different version! The editing is good, especially taking into account that you did the movie in such a short time! And the ending is just great!
So here is your S-S-F bronze!

That was fun! I laughed! This movie reminded me of my short and unfortunate career as sorceress in NWN. I loved the way Jenniza looked in �??real life�?? and in NWN�??similar to each other yet slightly different. It�??s like the transition between Wonder Woman and her �??real life�?? character. :)

I thought I was brilliant in this movie. Jenniza was.. you know.. okay.. but Oh God! WHAT A DIVA!!! Right after filming she stalked off into her trailer, and wouldn't come out again, until she got her own stunt-woman. YEESH!!! Is it MY fault I have a good agent?!?!

5 star

Although I never played Neverwinter Nights, I was in Everquest for a bit, so I certainly could and DID relate to this short snippet of an RPGer's day in the life. I thought thay Bob's reasoning behind being a human was hilarious! I enjoyed watching this film, not only because it was a fun concept, but because your joy in creating it was evident throughout. Nice touch with the end credit cast (and scriptwriters and even stunt double!).

Ah, the role playing days... thiefs and traps...potions and scrolls...notebooks stacked four feet high and strange dice by the thousands. A great little film that I am happy to say I stumbled upon. Good deal!

Maybe a little short (you could have brung here much more ideas), but, I know, a 30 hours film. Was funny !

Damn. A woman who also likes NWN? WOW!
I like NWN too. I also have NWN2 but haven't played in a while.
As for the movie, good job. Kinda stupid with the jokes but that's what comedy is for right?
Nice sets and scene selections. Although the costume could have been better for Sally. Tomb raider just doesn't fit with the game.

Overall 4 1/4 stars but can only give 4.

**MOMC REVIEW**

Was it me or was this movie a bit odd but on the funny side. I thought that the movie really was confusing and i did'nt know what the hell was going on, all i knew was that this person needed a NWN charecter and after that i was speehless!

But i cant be to harsh, the voice acting was good and i like the costume you used, very gaming like! Hopefully there is more to come from jenniza as we know she can do better!

MOMC Review:

As a AD&D player from waaay back, I can appreciate much of this film (why anyone would want to be a human is beyond me... ;) But to be honest, I think the end sequence was the funniest part of the film (the toilet paper bit made me literally "lol").

Probably a bit too "specific" to be appreciated by the masses, but still it was OK.

Score: 3.9

*** MOMC REVIEW ***

A short but fun account of the creation of one of those MMORPG characters. This manages to offer a few laughs that range from the sarcastic to the zany. It could perhaps use a little more to fill things out, and some additional attention could be given on the technical front.

I will be giving a score out of 100 initially, which will be translated into the MoMc rating out of 5.0 using the same scale as for my review thread.

Overall enjoyment: 30/35. I had fun watching it, and got a couple of laughs �?? particularly the bit near the beginning "A human? You mean like�?� a human?" It's shortness and somewhat disjointed nature take it down a bit.

Editing: 23/30. Visually this is done decently enough. There are times where I felt it led a bit too abruptly from one scene to the next. Scene selection is pretty good, and the inclusion of the "take a bow" scene was a nice touch. Music choices were quite good. A few voice-overs were difficult to hear. For whatever reason, I can't make out the line just before your character kills the skeleton. And the clapping at the end drowned out the lines. There was also an audible humming noise in some of the recordings.

Production Value: 12/15. Definitely some good Starmaker work here. The costumes and props were used well �?? costumes in particular as we switch from "regular Jenniza" to "fantasy Jenniza", and the bit with the stunt-double. Good use of sub-titles. This relies on the default opening title and credits. Some extra polish there could have brought this up a little.

Characters: 8/10. Plenty of good characters, both in the real and fantasy worlds. They are a touch thin, by the very nature of this film, so this is as high as I can go here.

Dialog: 7/10. Some good comedic dialog in places. I suspect some of this had a personal edge to it, which makes it much funnier between the two of you. ;)

Total: 80/100.

4 stars. And just barely!

My suggestions: Well, I think you essentially did what you wanted to do with this film, as it's not meant to be taken seriously. But regardless�?�
I think this could have done with some extra scenes to make it feel less disjointed. Once we reach the fantasy world, in particular; it jumps from the castle, to the running scene, to the skeleton fight, all rather abruptly.
Consider putting your voice-overs through some basic editing in Audacity �?? particularly noise removal. Some volume adjustment could have helped here as well, to ensure your voices can be heard over the applause.
You might also consider putting together some overlays or backdrops for a custom title sequence.

MoMc Rating: 3.5

***MOMC Review***

Though slight and strangely plotless, Last Minute NWN Character has its share of qualities and makes up for its lack of substance with plenty of self-referential humor. I loved the exploration of escapism that runs throughout, and although I thought this premise could have been teased out into a more proper film, what you presented was well worth a watch. Uneven, a tad sloppy, and yet charming nonetheless, the film exhibits the promise of a comedy director I hope will continue to expande her vision.

This is great to see two people making a movie and having fun in the process. It's evident in your final product and it exudes on to the small screen. This is also proof that an idea is much more important to carry a movie than effect after effect. I especially like how you guys can poke fun at yourself as that takes courage on this medium.

I am glad to see your creativity flowing so well, also that you have access to voice overs and mods. Pretty good movie but the voice overs needed to be leveled out a little more. There were lines where you would be screaming something and the guy would be talking very lightly.

All in all it was pretty enjoyable watch though.

Nice inventive comedy!

What a most unusual subject! Kate and I played Neverwinter Nights before (that's what NWN means, I am guessing), although I had to literally beg her to play with me.

And how glamorous is it to star in one's own movie... :)

I especially like the way you always add the bowing actors in the end. It's becoming a signature of a Jenniza production.
