Ive had so much fun releasing films on TMO for our fans. After three amazing years on TMO, the time has come to take the next step in TM film making and adapt outside editing with the TM engine. I have released a new horror short series available to scare the sh** out of you on TMU right now.

We most likely will not release any further LMAO Studio films on TMO due to the film making restrictions. Time to evolve.

We envite all out fans to visit our new studio and enjoy our new and improved The Movies anime films on TMU.

See you there!!


Thank you to all LMAO Studios fans and supporters.

Okay, here it is.

As usual, this is genius on a number of levels... MefuneAkira is a [play nice now!]ing genius. There - I said it. Watch out for the rapidly swelling head (and too bad, but the guy's earned it).

The most brilliant stuff on display here is the stuff that isn't actually on display - it's all in the writing, the delivery, and the timing. The funniest parts of the film take place in the (SPOILER!!!!) dark. And you know what? That's perfectly okay - even better than okay, it's goddamned funny, and allows you, the viewer to fill in the visual blanks with whatever strikes YOU as most comedic.

The shell of the film, the actual in-the-light visuals, are quick and simple, but effective; and they aren't the point, anyway. The funny is.

And that part was damned fine.

Mefune, you make me laugh.

Late review because I'm an arse.
I watched this after "Nearly Noon" and a lot of the same questions apply. How far do you take the same joke?
For me, in this case it worked better. And you know why? Mike and Terry, that's why. For some reason knowing their names made it work for me: it gave them a history and just shone.
Need I mention the VOs and the lighting choices? I thought not!

Hilarious script, wonderful effects, perfect comedic timing, etc.

Ok, maybe this film was spot on in every single aspect, but you know what, it was funny, fresh, clever, and a little diabolical all at the same time. In the cover of darkness MefuneAkira whips out another comedy classic.

4 stars from the Archaic Review Board
(but you made me laugh so I gave you 5)

Holy Crap. What did I just watch? Oh, I know, Comedy Gold.
That was simply hilarious and your usual perfect execution, was fantastic. The use of the black screen added to the tension at first, then it just defined the comedy. The darkness became an unwilling participant in MIke and Terry's attempt at military domination, and then it became the straight man to the comedic genius that is this short. Fantastic!

Someone gave this movie 1*. Someone else gave it 2*s. I thought it was better than that. Very cool effects! Descent comedy. Weak story line. Some people will give 5*s to anything. (3*s).

Thank you, Oznof

It's gonna be hard for even a comic master like MefuneAkira to top an epic like his own "super duper uber galaxy force". But I gotta say. He's got potential and "the cover of darkness" shows it alright.
Please review my dogbiter and fitch series.

No I Dont use alt files and this is not the first time I've heard this. I've not been useing alt files how did you jump to the conclusion? I spent a long time on my film and you probiably didn't get it cause your american or something. In that case you shouldn't have rated it. At what point did I say I was cheating in my reveiw of your teaser? I said that we were all going to a great effort to get to the no 1 spot and you some how mysteriously got to no 1 with a 23 second long teaser. I also found it strange that a non studio account had an identiacal reveiw as your own and rated on the same day. I dont know if it was within minuets of each other but I looks mysterious. You obviously didn't "look before you leep" and revenged reveiwed on my comment about your teaser. You also said that I had made no effort in makeing it. Well It is longer than yours which was 23 seconds long. I ALSO THINK YOUR FORGEING ITS JUST A GAME!!! A bit of fun. My freind and me had great fun and a good laugh making it and other veiwers agreed. This film However was not "sot on the monitor" funny. It had bad jokes and I dont know what anothernewdawn Is talking about. I coul acuse you of useing alts because Its a good review because thats what you've done to my film. Is a game for crying out loud rember that

A great setup for a slam bam (or more of a bang bang) laugh-your-snot-out gut buster. Wonderful military music at the start (by Sushii I presume?), and brilliant acting by all involved.

Posted on April 30, 2008
- BiggsTrek

Mefune Akira is the true master of comedy here on TMO (and probably a lot of other places, too!) If you can take such an innocent title as this (ITCOD) and produce a laugh riot... then, well... the sky is the limit!

Loved it!

:)

As soon as the movie started I was blown away by the music that was playing over the credits, I thought that it helped set up the joke of the movie. Using the black background and the overlays to tell the story could have been a bad move but the voice acting made the movie work. I would give this four stars but because you did the overlays and music yourself it gets five.

I would like to start by saying amazing job on the VO's! The reason I only gave this 4 stars was because it was funny at first but then it started to get a bit boaring as the movie progressed. When making comedy movies try to follow the comedy rule of 3. Other then that great job!

Excellent! Mefune Akira proves that simplicity can make for a strong film. With second to none voice-overs and carefully written dialogue, this short film stretches a long way. Nicely done!

Posted on March 25, 2008
- Primaer

Nice little movie with some pretty good dialogues and a weird style. I enjoyed the intonations of the characters which made me smile the most. However, I think that the black scenes looked cheap and a nearly dark setting would have been better. So we just hear these guys and see them from time to time.

COOL! really liked the first bit , you created an atmosphere like it was an actual movie! I think for a Directer like you , you could have made it a bit more satifying, it was great but it needs to be a bit longer, and a little bit more music , you could of had this great music theme in one place! KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK! =] CONGRATS FOR BEING FIRST PLACE!!!

Brilliant Movie on many levels. Most comedies people make aren't remotly funny, this however made me laugh out loud.

The good use of darkness increases the humor and quality of them movie. It is difficult something funny when it is just based on V/O.

Well done MefuneAkira, 5/5.
The V/Os were great. Some hilarious voices!

A really funny film. The mods and music set the scene well and the vo's are well. I thought it was going to be another fantasy/sci-fi movie which it kinda is but then it got very funny and i was in fits when he shot the guy lol. A very well thought of comedy movie. Very creative! Well done. Could you rate my teaser trailer for my upcoming movie Chicken 3 please.

Well, except for the very sophomoric actors names--you aren't a sophomore, are you Mefune?--I'd have to say this was perfect.
Well written, and so well acted you'd never believe it's the same guy doing both parts. An excellent use of lighting (and darkness) give this little 'comedy' an eerie, gloomy mood. Murder and mayhem abound, as well as quite a few laughs, in the latest offering from MefuneAkira.

It's a one man show :O

But honestly that has to be one of the most clever, funny, and well thought out movie ever. I have never actually had a good laugh during a tmo movie but you brought me to it.

Voice overs were superb everything was perfectly clear, good pitch change, It's cool that you took on every single character. Saves down on the stress of casting I bet ;)

Music was very very good! It was entertaining and kept the movie alive and exciting.

Now that's what I call a dark comedy (hehehehe).

An original concept very well delivered. Excellent acting, I could swear that they were both two different actors playing the central characters.

Good work on the title music as well.

I bet this happens in real military campaigns quite alot.

I am not usually big on "competition films" but this film is is just great. kinda rememds me of Red Vs Blue. The best part about this film believe it or not in the begining the music and everything thing sets this super serious mood like you about to get into some epic throwdown then POW! The comedy hits you in the face with a combo the dosesnt stop until the credits. SALUTE B!(#&$!!!

I miss movies like this... I really do. Its not only amazing to me that you produced this at whim for a competition, but that you did so much without doing anything :D What I mean by that is that "by the cover of darkness" you told a story that was literally in the dark.

There was even distinct characters, some arc thrown in there, and most of all a lot of laughs. Once again, we see that you know how to make people... well I guess laugh isn't the right word let me try it again: Once again, we see that you know how to make milk come out my nose, my mouth, and... well... lets keep this clean :) Great film.

I was gonna give you 1 star for making me sneeze snot bubbles onto my monitor. I was afraid id miss the movie, but luckily you thought of the snotty-laughing people and made the movie to not show alot.
I was still mad about the snot, but i'll just make my maid clean it up...yah...i own a maid now. Solely for cleaning off snotty monitors.

FUNNY!! Mefune prooving once again that comedy comes down to get writing and comic timing. Even 'Under the cover of darkness' he (Mef) can still make me spit liquid at 200 paces. Great stuff - stupid, funny and a great entry into the contest. Great visual snap shots too - worked really nicely.

cheers

A stunning entry into the competition with a mixture of great writting and creative shooting. Once again, full of energy and enthusiasm, which is something I have come to expect from LMAO Studios. The effort always goes into movies and it certainly shines in the end!

Until the next time my friend

Nuke Well in the Cover of Darkness!!!

Damn, that was good! I came here thinking everyone was gassing air about how funny it was, but that was actually good! Kudos.

First off, anothernewdawn stole my review. I was thinking genius, but he wrote it. So instead, I'll give you another word. [play nice now!]. I know that's gonna get censored, so I could say sh!t or s - hit.

As in, you, my man, are THE [play nice now!]. Whether or not you've got the face for radio, I dunno, but you've got the talent for it. When most of the TMO world is caught up in overlays, you show exactly what a black screen, voices, and a little imagination can do.

Great job.

Absolutely hilarious, only made more so by wonderful VOs. Your sense of comic timing is impeccable, as is your script as well. I liked the music, overlays, and mods too, which enhance the overall experience. All-in-all, this is a nice, funny 4 minutes of a hilarious take on the title "In the Cover of Darkness." Three thumbs up!

LMAO has again proven it deliver, true to it's namesake..
I'm still looking for my ass as we speak.
Lovely voice work and great delivery and timing made this clever script come alive.
Mefune, you are the king of TMO comedy bar none.
Another excellent effort.

LOL, a really short and sweet entry into the contest... again some really funny stuff happening here by Mefune!
Best of luck in the comp!

Okay, here it is.

As usual, this is genius on a number of levels... MefuneAkira is a [play nice now!]ing genius. There - I said it. Watch out for the rapidly swelling head (and too bad, but the guy's earned it).

The most brilliant stuff on display here is the stuff that isn't actually on display - it's all in the writing, the delivery, and the timing. The funniest parts of the film take place in the (SPOILER!!!!) dark. And you know what? That's perfectly okay - even better than okay, it's goddamned funny, and allows you, the viewer to fill in the visual blanks with whatever strikes YOU as most comedic.

The shell of the film, the actual in-the-light visuals, are quick and simple, but effective; and they aren't the point, anyway. The funny is.

And that part was damned fine.

Mefune, you make me laugh.
