«Really good start to the series good to see you in MS Killian»
Eldritch - Apocalypse Then (Part One)
«Really liked this. It's a good beginning to what could be a long series. Loved the characters and opening scenes and it's great to see you working in Moviestorm at last. Looking forward to the next one, but would like to see a little more action and a little less talking.»
«Very nicely put together, great shots an angles. Well shot dialogue scenes are very underrated but you did a really good job. One thing to consider is keeping the camera on one side of the characters, we call it the line of action or 180 degree rule. Look it up, it really helps dialogue scenes flow a bit better.
Very interested to see more, love this kind of stuff and you hit on my favorite part of vampire stories; the history. The most interesting thing I find is always the long lives they lead and all the potential stories involved in that so I look forward to seeing more about these characters.
This is also some of the best Moviestorm stuff I've seen, often it seems very stiff and emotionless but you've managed to pull great stuff out of the program and taken away some of the moviestorm-ness. It felt like a well done video game cut scene rather than a Machinima.
Other than that I'd echo the previous statements about the lighting, I know when we shoot real life night time scenes we usually end up using MORE lights than when we shoot daylight. It's strange but it often works better than having 'authentic' darkness.
Anyway, great job by you and macwemyss here, I'll be tuning in to the next episode for sure »

"London- city of light. City of darkness. The goal for many. The end for most. London-the battlefield fought every night and everyday. A war with untold casualties. A war with no borders. No cease fires. A war you don't even know is going on. A war fought to keep you safe at night. tucked up in a yawn and sleep nice little bed. In your nice little houses. A war to keep a barrier around your nice little world. A barrier to keep out of the-things that look outside. A war between the sane and the insane. The day and the night. On one side, the messengers and soldiers of the light. Fighting to keep the souls of humanity safe for tensions of those has nothing but meat. Toys to be broken and cast aside when they're done.On the other-the dark. Twisted, evil embodiments that are in our deepest fears. Terrors. Beings who want to turn this world into their playground. And drain your blood. Tear your flesh. Flair your mind from your body. And then theres me." This is what said in the first minutes and half of the movie said by the British director and star of this movie, Killian. This is most likely his darkest movie. It is very interesting. Writer Macwemyss knows what he is doing when from the start of this movie. This is, thougn, one of the movies in which you don't know what you think after viewing. I was sitting at my computer thinking whether I liked it or not. It was a very enjoyable fifteen minutes, but I didn't know, as a whole for the movie, whether I liked it. I began thinking for a while and came up with my deciaion. I liked it. Killian and Mac made a good team. This movie is really dark both figuratively and literally. A very well made movie by one of the most respected fimmakers in the community. This being his third or so, moviestorm movie really pays off. No one would have guessed he was new to moviestorm. He can turn something into something else. He is a really good filmmaker with a lot of talent. I do hope to see him continue with more movie productions in movirestorm as he is a pro. A-»
«Great job with this Killian. I really liked the narration section at the beginning and your music choices were excellent. Good sound design and really nice voice work by you and Bezzer. I thought the character designs were really cool too, especially Zack, who looks exactly as I imagined him lol.
The video quality was a little bit grainy but I know it's a real bitch to get MS to export at the highest settings on some machines. I thought one or two shots were a little dark but overall I think the colour scheme worked well. One thing I'd mention is for night time shots it's sometimes easier to drain some of the saturation and add a hint of blue to the colouring to imply darkness rather than simply making the image darker or more contrasted. That's just something I like to do though, it may or may not help.
Overall a great start to the series. I can see how it might be seen as a little slow and wordy atm because there is nothing else going on in the episode other than talking and exposition really, but in the context of the overall movie (which I see more as a whole rather than several mini parts) I think it works perfectly as a way of explaining what's going on. Really enjoyed that, now I'll get to work with the rest of the script lol
