Run, Luther, Run!

The pioneers - those who came to Moviestorm early - have had a pre-release of the upcoming Law and Order pack for a short while, and we’re now starting to see some of the first movies made with it.  Here’s one we particularly like, by tkd27.  If you enjoy it, please pop on over to his Moviestorm page and leave him a comment.

Warning - 15 rated content.

We can’t wait to see what else turns up!  And it won’t be long before you can get your hands on a bunch of Moviestorm cop action too.

Medieval Dating

Many of you will already be familiar with the highly successful Adventures of Luke and Joe series.  Santa Cruz: The Previous Generation was shown at the Cambridge Film Festival, and now the team of Danny Willis and Ash McGonigal (aka Geiiga) have produced another storming episode, Medieval Dating

This one was their entry for the 48 Hour Film Project.  The team had just 48 hours from start to finish.  They were given a genre, and some props they had to include, and a line of dialogue, and then had to write, shoot and edit the whole thing.  Which, as I’m sure you’re all aware, is one heck of a tough challenge.

It’s got a great script, and well worth a few minutes of your time.

Moviestorm supports KidsGiving2Kids

We’re very pleased to be lending our support to the charity KidsGiving2Kids.  A few months ago, we created a short promotional video for them which explains what they’re all about, and you can see it on their Facebook site.

Kidsgiving2Kids.org is an online experience with the mission of engaging children ages 3-18 in acts of giving that change the lives of others.  Designed to be age specific and educational, as well as entertaining, KidsGivingtoKids.org has the potential to become the premiere website for online giving used by children, parents, grandparents and educators both in the United States and over time, globally.

Happy Holidays from Moviestorm

OK, we’re a teeny bit early, but the holiday season is nearly upon us and of course, we’ve put together a very special holiday pack for all our favourite Moviestormers. This pack is full of festive seasonal props so you can create your own animated holiday greetings, a marathon television special or your own version of It’s a Wonderful Life (Jimmy Stewart and Donna Reed not included).

We’ve also included four new Quick Start movies that you can use to record your own holiday greeting to send to friends and relatives via email or to post online. Just record your own audio message, change the actor to suit and you’ve got a very special, personalised animated greetings card for all your loved ones. Or a very rude animated greetings card for all your freinds. As you like.

It’s all the holly jolly goodness with none of the prickly needles stuck in the rug or tinsel wrapped around the wheels of the hoover.

Happy holidays from everyone at Moviestorm!

(P.S. This pack is our gift to you, but get it quickly! This is a limited offer and we’ll be charging for it in the New Year!)

Featured Favourites

We’ve swapped out our favourites and have a new crop of movies for your viewing pleasure.

First up is Lucinda’s This Is It, a music video for Romanian rock band, Vice Romania.

We’ve also chosen, Run415’s Revelation, gmunozcalene’s Gallery Opening and tree’s Shakuhachi solo. The latter can be seen at left and features tree’s rather gorgeous custom Japanese set.


Due to half of QA taking a World of Warcraft holiday, there is no QA Pick of the Unspecified Time Period.

Moviestorm on TMUnderground - Sunday Nov 23

This Sunday, November 23, I’ll be talking on TMUnderground’s Internet Radio show, Industry 101. 

Since the demise of Lionhead’s The Movies Online, TMUnderground have branched out to cover other machinima tools, including Moviestorm, iClone and Antics.  They have a large community of machinimators, including a wide selection of films, and a number of live webcasts under the TMOA (The Movies On Air) banner. 

I’ll be on at 6pm UK time (go here to figure out the time where you are).  The show lasts an hour, and I’ll be talking about “Moviestorm, Machinima and the overall place in the universe for what we do”.  If you have questions or suggestions for other things you’d like to see covered, you can post them here.

To listen in, go to TMOA and click on the link on the right to pick up the stream at 64k or 32k.

Looking forward to it!

Make something good, says YouTube

YouTube challenges its users to “make something decent”.  Truly hilarious stuff from The Onion.  (Thanks to Angel Gambino for this one.)
