Film Description

Music by: Ben Tyler Band
Film by: Nikstudios05

Background -
Ok, lets see, I was thinking recently about making this certain type of movie. Having no experience I knew I had to come up with a story and specific visual design that matched the song. But first, I had to find the right song! After hours of search, I remembered this band, the Ben Tyler Band. It was perfect for what I already had in mind. With some miner tweaking came my first ever music video, and I have I got to say, I have no problems with it.

The Band -
The Ben Tyler Band came to mind when I found one of their CD's I got at their concert. I know, I know, copyright issues came to my mind too. But, I looked into it, I think they are still up and coming. But don't doubt their ability, I mean, just listen to this song! Their music is for free on two sites I wrote down. Please check them out! If they have any problem with the vid, I shall remove it, but I just wanted to make something they would love as much as I do!
UPDATE: I have received an e-mail back verifying the usage, saying this:
Hey man, it's no problem at all! Sorry I did not get back to you sooner,
I've been very busy with work and traveling. Unfortunately, since you last
saw us, the band has broken up. However, you are still more than welcome to
use the song in your video! And yes, I'd love to see the film either before
it's complete or after, it does not matter. But I'm glad you thought of us!
Hope it all turns out well!

Oh! And sorry for putting it in the ACTION genre, but I didn't
knwo what else to do. I think its more of a DRAMA, if not,
then just a plain old MUSIC VIDEO.

WEll, had to do it, here are the charts after the third day:
~3th in Action
~6th in Top Movies
~6th in Top S/E Movies

A very impressive music video dude! I loved it. The scenes fitted the music so perfectly! I loved all the cool costumes and starmaker work you did!
Great stuff. The song rocked. Loved it. The editing was up to a professional standard. It was very enjoyable. I really enjoyed this.
Definelty, one of the best music videos in this competition, no doubt about it!
Overall: A very good music video, both in visuals and entertaining.
Top job dude. You excelled at this music video, really out-did yourself and it's great to see that happen. Wonderful music video.
Two big thumbs up from me. A recommended music video.

A nice music video which captures the mood and emotion of the music very well. The strenth is the story you are conveying which in a way was interupted by the limitations of the singer. You did some great overlay work there but I just felt that the limitation of the game meant you couldn't present a band (in terms of singer drummer etc). I know it's difficult to talk about limitations but it left me wanting to see more of the lady in red and the exceptionally used mask figures.
Cheers for your reviews earlier today, can I just say your suspicions I borrowed my animations from a game are a compliment as they were all created by myself using Daz Studio.

Hi Nick it's ticking tom, long time no see!
Brilliant film nick i loved it! Great use of costume and camera angles, cool scenary too, song was pretty good as well! Once again Nick your work has amazed me (you could consider making professional movies as a career as you seem to have that creative spark) Well anyway a very good film and it clearly reminded you of a proper music video!
Anyway i think i need to tune into your studio more cause your stuff is great keep up the good work!
By the way i've recently been working on a movie which i've just released as the first part of a trilogy and im eager to get some reviews. If you look up the film 'uprising part one' for me and rate it with some comments that would be great!
Could you also take a look at these other two films, uprising trailer and uprising music video.

Oh i'm relasing a new horror soon called the mad scientist

This was a fantasticly done music video! The imagery itself was memorable and made quite an impression, but the ending with them all coming to wash was brilliant! Great music as well. This is on par with any professional music video on the air. Really. Bravo.

I really like the song, and the video was an interesting match. I enjoyed it! Hope you make some more like this (always good to get permission BEFORE making it, but I'm no lawyer! ;).

Well done!

Stranded by the Ben Tyler Band

The Good:
A very good choice of songs. I may be a country boy but I liked the sound.
Excellent use of free-cam.
Your choice of set, scenes and set dressings was very good.
The mods and how you used them were top-notch.
Nice overlays and transitions.

The Bad:
Using music without permission. Loss of 1 star for that.
Once or twice I saw a bit of minor editing problems but not too noticable.

This video was done very expertly. Maybe you should send the band a link to this film and get their approval in case Lionhead/Activision/Microsoft decides to try to pull it for copyright issues. Very nice job though. Worthy of 5 stars but have to dock you for the copyright.
