This video is a three for one. I'd personally call it a two for one, as I don't count the credits as an entertaining section, but apparently the author does. It basically includes a short trailer for a new Movie Battles map, and a video featuring the Full Authentic game mode. I personally question the choice of music, because while KotOR's music is quite dramatic, it is entirely wrong for footage that has its own music associations. So while it kind of fits, it just feels wrong to me.
Overall, though, a well-edited film with some good footage. Work a look for Star Wars and/or Movie Battles fans. Cough up the 35 megs worth of bandwidth if you're willing to wait for it to download.

However, I would like to thank a few people in particular. Firstly, my long-time clan mate, Duh, for doing an all-nighter to help me fix up the credits sequence. Secondly, Eagleeye for spending so much time on the titles sequences. Thirdly, TK-321 for his outstanding special effects mod that really made this movie look far more impressive. And lastly, to the Moviebattles team for creating an immersive game with awesome Star Wars maps. INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Download the zipped file and extract its contents to a folder of your choice. DESCRIPTION: This four minute and forty second movie is comprised of three movies. The first is a map trailer featuring some upcoming Moviebattles maps, the second is a feature movie showcasing the gameplay of the Full Authentic mode of Moviebattles, and the third is the credits sequence. BUGS: The credits sequence is a little blurry. Nearly seven hours in total were spent attempting to fix this, but due to Windows rather temperamental nature, the most I could really do was just reduce the blurriness rather than eliminate it completely. However, this can be rectified by viewing the credits on a smaller Windows Media Video screen rather than on full-screen (although the movie and trailer can be seen on full-screen without any problems). COMMENTS: Well, it's been quite a journey for me on this movie. I've reached a new level of movie-making since my last Full Authentic movie (released April or so), and it has given me the confidence to tackle bigger and better movie projects. For this particular movie, I started it less than two months ago and filmed a little over three hundred demos. The majority of the time was spent rendering the demos in High-Definition, and then of course putting it together on Adobe Premiere. My aim in the movie was to illustrate how Full Authentic mode of Moviebattles allows you to recreate the epic moments of the Star Wars movies (and EU material) while having a lot of action-packed fun. A few of the scenes early in the movie were staged, however the majority of the movie occured spontaneously. Also included with the movie is a map trailer featuring some of the budding mappers of the Moviebattles community and their upcoming maps. Be sure to give it a download when they come out. Lastly, I am aware that the credits are rather long, but due to the huge scale of the production and the immense number of actors (the majority of whom were not aware they were being filmed) I thought it would be nice to list the players who were featured. After all, half the fun of being in a movie of this kind is knowing you were in it. In addition, the background images are an attempt at a "pastel"/slightly "cartoony" series of images, rather than super high quality images. Thankyou for viewing my movie and please note that my next movie project is a Moviebattles frag video, so please send in your good demos to firstname.lastname@example.org . Thanks!
