It's October already, but there's still plenty of time.
If you've just started with Muvizu, remember your film doesn't need to be blockbuster length!
Here's a very short horror film:

Great example of a 10-second video!

Wow, Tony! That was AWESOME!! I loved everything about it! You put a lot of work into this! Great neighborhood at the beginning.. and lots of cool vehicles that I haven't seen in the store, so you must have created them....

I liked the driving scenes, very well done!

And the costume/head attachment was also very cool.. I'm guessing you made that?
VERY cool house... I liked the texture you used for the driveway... great character development, both physically and also defining the personality through dialog.

And I thought your use of the piano for the closing credits was very clever!

Did that interior come with the house? Or did you create separate sets?

I'm going to go watch it again, I may be back with more comments.... (Great job!)

follow-ups:

1) where did you get the car with the hood that can be opened?

2) good use of music when we first see the house

3) I like the lines "Only a witch would live here..." followed by "That's why we brought you..." hahaha!

4) at 4:18, is that photo on the wall significant? You linger on it as though it may be somebody we should recognize...

5) at 5:10 I like the imagination sequence, and the fact that you used different shading to distinguish it from the rest of the video

6) I liked the harp music as a transition in and out of the fantasy

7) I like the way you succinctly make the points required to create the story. You didn't linger on the purchase of the costume, but there was enough shown to get the idea across. I also like the fact that the "I have a plan" music started while he was leaving work and continued through the purchase of the costume. That is good directing, because it leads the mood easily from one scene to the next with music.

8) at 6:01 I liked the headlights!

9) at 7:00 I like your use of music again. It creates the feel of suspense and humor at the same time, which is perfect for the scene

10) at 7:32, again.. effective use of music to establish the mood

11) great use of lighting.. it was appropriate for each scene... darker when necessary, lighter what that was a better match for the scene! Another good example of directing the scene, not the technology.

12) I thought the mother in law character was particularly well developed. Nice job all around! Great contest submission! And thanks for the subtitles! They make your videos so much more enjoyable for those of us who don't speak or understand Spanish.

What He Said Good little movie, and thanks for the subtitles. The lighting still needs some work, especially using them to create shadows to define things better - like at 2:22 when we see the house for the first time, it's evenly lit, no shadows, no real sense of depth or menace. The ambient lighting (upper and lower) can be used in some scenarios, but for these kind of shots I would say you need to turn the ambient off completely and use only spots/points casting individual shadows to get the look. And I thought, at 4:18, the photo was going to do something, like their eyes would move or something...

Hello Pat, thank you for the comments,

I create a neighborhood around Claysters house,

the costume/head attachment it's a mask from muvizu, the only attachment I imported was the red shopping bag.

I made 3 separated sets for the house exterior, the interior and the grandma room from 0,
The house is made with cubes at the abstract objects, the interior I first modeled in sketchup, but the wallpaper texture looks very bad so I used the backgrounds for the walls instead and almost every asset in the house it’s a sketchup model.

The car from sketchup, look for (1966 dodge challenger from Steve S). at the warehouse, he made the car model with separated parts, so you can erase all and leave the hood to import it to muvizu, or the windows etc, I am going to try to make the windows transparent now.

The photo at the 4:18, he is the Mexican President and his wife, the grandma made a comment on the photos haha

Thank you, I am glad you enjoy it ….

You are right I thought I turned off all The ambient lighting on every set and scene, and I leave it on in that scene, I was trying to be very carefull on following MrDrWho13 lightning advices I new at the end some thing was going to be missing.

The photo scene is the Mexican President, you get the joke? Haha

Thank you for your comments Ziggy

Tonyob67, this was great to watch. I have a short attention span lately but it was easy to sit through this video. I agree with Pat's comments about the scenes, characters, and cars. I loved the subtitles. I might share this with our school Spanish teacher who I share an office with. I think he would like it.

Everything in this video shows a lot of improvement, and the fact that you are using cubes, other props, and Sketch up is very interesting. Maybe this summer I can get into learning Sketch up. You spent a lot of time on details and it made the video very enjoyable and high quality.

Good luck in the contest.

Congratulations to Artpen, Ziggy and Woztoons.

All great entries. Funny, trippy and visually impressive.

Excellent use of shadows and sound FX. The set design and lighting (in particular the establishing shots for Ziggy) are some on the best I've seen on here


What entries? am I missing something?

It was a model of a haunted house I got on Sketchup's 3D Warehouse (or whatever they call it this week). 3D models always work better than images when you have to move the camera, I find. Also, I knew I had to set it on fire at the end, so an image just wouldn't have worked anywhere near as well. Avoid using images when possible is my advice - flatness is rarely all that helpful in a 3D environment.


They have ready made models in Sketchup? You can just upload them into Muvizu, or do you have to have some special file extension?

I can not even come up with an idea. Maybe I can figure something out with the new characters. It takes me so long to make anything that I have not been very enthusiastic about even starting lately. Time is running out so maybe next year.

Here's the 3D warehouse: https://3dwarehouse.sketchup.com/?hl=en
You import these into sketchup and then export from there as .ase but often they have faces facing the wrong way or too many polygons.
