For those of you who don't know yet, one of my hobbies is to make movies with my friends. Well, I've just completed a trailer for the movie that we are currently working on. If any of you are interested in seeing it, you can download it at any of the three sites below. The trailer's size is about 5.2 megs, so it shouldn't be a problem even for those of you on 56k.

So if you guys see it, I'd like to hear any comments/suggestions that you may have. Thanks. Wink

I'm not quite sure what to say. There's quite a bit there, but all really short clips. I like the night scene where all you can see of the car is the headlights.

I put a lot of short scenes in so as not to give all that much of the movie away.

That's because I'm a funny funny guy. Na na!

The water? Depth Charges in my pool Grin
Actually, it's a 3 liter dry ice bomb suspended about 6 inches below the surface of the water. Shoots a column of water up about 20 feet. Very cool Grin

Well, to make one you only need three things:

1) Plastic soda bottles (any size)
2) Dry ice
3) Water

I don't know about where you live but down here I can go to the grocery store and buy as much dry ice that I need. Wink Made the neighbors mad with that one. The guy was sitting in his backyard when he heard a loud explosion, the windows on his house shook, and he saw a column of water shoot up over the fence. Grin

I wouldn't suggest trying it unless you know what you're doing. Dry ice bombs can be very dangerous and especially unpredictable. You never know how long it'll take for one to go off. That one, for example, took about 7 minutes to go off while some of the others that we did took 7 seconds.

Up here, dry ice is hard to come by. You have to be a doctor or a scientist to get some.

They sell dry ice in the grocery store?!?

lol, yea. It's about $5 for about 2 pounds. Though my friend can get it through some special program. With that, it's about $5 for 20 pounds.

scooter, you don't need to be a scientist to get dry ice you must be thinking about liquid nitrogen, well at least not in america. And arizona must have some special law about being able to sell it in grocery stores. Cause down here in florida i've never seen it in grocery stores, granted i've never looked for it but i am pretty sure they don't sell it.

Yeah, I'm probably confused with liquid nitrogen, but it's still hard to find dry ice up here.

To buy dry ice, you have to be 18 or older.

You also have to remember that Arizona probably has the most non-strict laws in the entire U.S.

Just look at our gun laws (or lack thereof Grin )

Cool trailer, that splash seems familiar Wink

P.S. Why do they sell dry ice in grocery stores? What does the average joe need dry ice for? (and don't say making bombs What ever! )

Isn't dry ice just frozen carbon dioxide?

liquid frozen carbon dioxide. so yes, mainly its used in lab situations to keep things cold, and dry Because when dry ice melts instead of becoming a liquid it directly turns into a gas so no wetness. But it doesn't melt for a LONG time And its very cold -100 degrees (farenheight) or something like that.

God i love being so smart. too bad i can't type.

I think your thinking of liquid nitrogen. And isn't 100'F very hot? And dry ice is solid, thats why they call it ice. They use it in rock concerts, when you put dry ice in water or something, it makes that cool mist.

Do they use that in austin powers where they freeze his body for 40 years? (Or how ever long it was)

Not at this time, no.

Dobberman, I don't really know what the average person uses it for but hey, I'm not complaining Grin Although, I have seen dry ice used in ice cream trucks. When they pack the ice cream into the cardboard boxes, they sometimes put dry ice in there too to keep it frozen. And as Luke said, dry ice sublimates (turns directly into a gas (at 1 atm presure) ), so when the ice melts (which takes a long time when the ice is in large chunks due to the fact that the less surface area of the ice, the longer the time to melt is) ,there's no water to make the ice cream soggy Grin

BTW, carbon dioxide is a liquid only at very high pressures. That's why dry ice turns directly into a gas instead of a liquid first.

It's almost done actually. It's the longest movie we've done yet. So far it's 30 min, but it shouldn't get above 45. Anyone have any good video compressing programs? At this time, the smallest I calculate that I can get it is about 148 megs, which makes it difficult if I intend to release it to the internet. Wink

He he he, if you guys think this movie looks cool, wait until you see "The Hunted" Grin

In Science class we went outside and put some dryice in a 2L bottle (if any smaller you would not have enough time to get to safe distance) and closed the cap and the teacher ran a little ways and after a little while the bottle was deforming and then BOOM! exploded. But a lesson we learned is that you shouldn't do it within a closed space. You have to do it in an open field otherwise the BOOM sound bounces off of a fence or other objects and makes the sound even louder! but an

Lol, actually, I use 20 oz. bottles all the time. There may not be enough time for an ENTIRE class to get away, but there's plenty for me to run away. All of the explosions in "The Hunted" trailer were all 20 oz bottles.

Again, DivX is the compression method of choice. Think I told you this once before.
http://www.divx.com/divx/
The Pro version has better compression, but you either have to put up with ads, or fork over $30. If I were you, I'd download the Pro version with ads, and then run AdAware to get rid of the adverts.

I got the Adaware thing yesterday and found a whole ton of crap. Then i ran it again right after the previous scan and 3, 4, 5 more things were found. Pretty weird.

I have a problem. As I said, we're almost done with "Internal Breach" but I'm having trouble finding good music for one of the scenes. Does anyone know of a good song that is fast-paced but at the same time creepy?

You have to specify WHAT ambient music.

Where would you find Duke Nukem ambient music. Don't say the game cause I don't have it anymore.

Well guys, it's going down. At this moment, my other computer is rendering the entire "Internal Breach" movie. It's going to take a few hours and when it's done, the output mpeg is expected to be 2.5 gigs. So you guys ready to download? Grin Grin Grin

J/K

The version I upload will be VERY compressed, though with my friend's program, the quality shouldn't be horrible. Just a few hours until I can see how this past month of work has turned out. I'm scared You're all against me! Grin

don't compress it too much, those of us with broadband could take 100 mb. It would be cool to have it better quality.

Well, after 5 hours of waiting for the damn movie to render (with an output size of 1.9 gigs), I realize that I forgot to include an entire half of a scene. This makes me soooooooooooo happy. Grrr!

Well, it gave me the chance to fix a set of minor "bugs". Now it's rendering AGAIN, should be done in about 5 hours. After viewing it in it's entirety, I say that while it isn't the best movie we've personally done (The Hunted shows much more promise), it's pretty decent for our first "conspiracy-themed" movie. Besides, the point of doing it was to have fun, and we did. LOL, now I can rest in peace...until I wake up tommorow.

Till then......good night, er, I suppose it's morning now, well, you know what I mean. Grin
