Learn Moviestorm from a master

Master machinimator & Moviestorm guru Phil “Overman” Rice is offering two 90-minute courses on how to use Moviestorm.

Phil has been involved with “machinima” filmmaking since 1998, having collaborated on over fifty machinima films. He is the founder of MachiniFeed, a blended RSS aggregator for machinima-themed blogs and websites. For several years, he hosted a machinima-themed podcast called The Overcast. He is also one of the founders and organizers of the International Machinima Expo, an annual virtual world festival showcasing machinima movies, discussion panels, and workshops. In September of 2006, he released Male Restroom Etiquette, a comedic mockumentary short film, reaching an audience of over five million viewers on YouTube, and gathering a Best Writing award at the 2006 Machinima Film Festival. Since then, his work has been screened on MTV, the BBC, and at dozens of film festivals worldwide.

A Movie In An Hour

The first, on May 15, takes you through the process from start to finish, and introduces you to everything you need to know to get going.

See a short Moviestorm film created from scratch in 60 minutes, right on Phil’s desktop, as it happens, followed by 30 minutes of Q&A about the process. Every major feature of Moviestorm software will be demonstrated, from character and set design through the animation phase, cutting room, and all the way down to the final rendering into video. There is no better or more comprehensive introduction to the way Moviestorm works… and it’s FREE.

Camera Mastery

The second course, on May 22, focuses on camerawork. This one costs $25, but also includes a take-home pack of a free Limited Edition addon, a sound effect, and a 50% discount voucher for Overman’s Moviestorm content store.

Learn how to make the most of Moviestorm’s powerful camera system. Course covers fundamentals of staging, framing, shot types, and cinematic language, as well as advanced Moviestorm processes including: keyframing techniques, rack focus and focal effects, tracking shots of moving subjects (person or vehicle), simulating handheld camera feel, using a multiple camera setup, and more.
