Alternate Vlarion 2
Directed by: Aaron Haynes
Released: December 2000
Preview If you've seen the original, Vlarion 2, then you will know exactly what's going on here because it's exactly the same as Vlarion 2 throughout, right until the end. Now-a-days this movie doesn't really compare to the latest 3dmm releases. All the ideas are in the right places, but the lack of voices, camera changes, animation and detail as well as an abundance of pre-made scenes and midi's drag the mark right down. I found it interesting how Aaron tried to make a movie more 'game' like though. It's an original concept that didn't totally fail to please. Overall a very average movie - voicing would have improved this movie tenfold, mind. NOTE: To understand the plot, you may need to download the original Vlarion series which can be found on this site.

Alternate Vlarion 3
Directed by: Aaron Haynes
Released: March 2002
Preview A hugely underrated movie, when it was first released many people refused to watch it because of the text boxes and long scenes with no camera changes. These people don't know what they're missing. Alternate Vlarion 3 is a great movie with awesome action scenes, a complex plot that keeps you gripped, and although it is not always perfect (The scenery isn't the best, and sometimes the long scenes are an annoyance.), it is still the best RPG-ish movie out there. I recommended it! NOTE: To understand the plot, you may need to download the original Vlarion series and Alternate Vlarion 2, all of which can be found on this site.

Alternate Vlarion 4 - The Heavens Collide Trailer
Directed by: Aaron Haynes
Released: December 2004
Preview The trailer for one of the most anticipated movies in 3dmm history. Sadly, this will be the last in the long established fantasy/drama series, but then again, it will bring with it some exciting closure. Despite it being a very short and non-revealing trailer, it is without-a-doubt one of the most gorgeous and fantastic looking 3dmm creations ever. I think it is safe to say that it will also be the best addition to the series and also one of Aarons greatest achievements. Only a trailer, yes, but it is a must download. Just take my advice and please ensure that you have a coshion under your chin when you watch this. It is home to some of the best 3dmm eye candy know to man and you're going to need something to soften the landing of your jaw on the desk. I can't wait for the movie!

Alternate Vlarion 4 Teaser
Directed by: Aaron Haynes
Released: October 2003
Preview The previous Vlarion movies were released quite a while back now, and another addition to the series is more than welcome even if I never really followed the series. Titled a teaser, that is all it is. I sports some very nice effects though - especially the walking silhouette and the 'old film' look. Very nice. Watch out for any trailers and/or the final movie!

Pamela
Directed by: Aaron Haynes
Released: August 2004
Preview An extremely unexpected movie for the Film Festival from Aaron here. It caught me off guard to tell you the truth, for two reasons. Firstly, I wasn't expecting a comedy and secondly, my initial impressions of the movie were through Aaron's signature on the bulletin board which suggested a dark yet sexy movie (I was thinking along the lines of a strip club) - it must have just been the neon subliminally talking to me! Pamala is an amalgamation of film noir and thrilling old school suspence (thanks Jaymond). It takes is inspiration from Grim Fandango and and an unfinished Kyle Macocs film. Such a combination has created an authentic noir feel, portraying the story of a detective on his latest case. Aaron has obviously worked quite hard on the script. He has coupled the dialoue and visual aspects of the film perfectly. The script is tight enough to provide a constant flow of humor and the visual comedy compliments. For example, when interviewing a client our main detective is leaning back on his chair rocking left and right. He stands up, leaving what appear to be his legs behind. We then see that he just has a pair of legs on the table designed to look like his - his were on the floor the whole time (gah - go watch it, you'll see what I mean). Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that the movie is littered with subtle visual quirks. Aaron has put some fantastic visual effects to use here. It has some of the best lighting effects ever done in 3dmm - I was particualry impressed with the shadow of the fan over the detectives legs in the opening scenes. As always, Aaron has made excellent use of the expansion packs new textures, creating some jaw dropping environments. The narration and all vocal aspects of the movie were flawless. Occassioanlly, there was something about's Jon's voice that just didn't seen... natural, but I'm not even sure that I didn't just imagine it. All-in-all a very clever and witty flick and one which no 3dmm collection should be without. Review by Will Cheyney.

Pamela is one of those movies that you can't help but enjoy, even if you don't quite know what is going on. That's not to say I don't. I do. Now. But Pamela was one of the first community made 3DMM movies I ever saw (in case you were really curious, they were, in order, Knights of Camelot - the first half, I get some pesky second-half error that I can't remedy for the life of me-- , REDUX, Pamela, and SATANIK) and although the end of the movie held significant "huh???" factor, it was thoroughly enjoyable even to a newbie. But I digress. Since I've watched it many times since then, I will be reviewing like I normally do, so not to worry. The story is great fun, in the style of film noir, and all those old detective flicks that our parents watched and told us about. Some parents made us watch them or spoofs of them. Mine having done that, the style was wonderfully appreciated. The writing was wonderfully suited for the style, and helped to emphasise it. The majority of the film is written as a soliloquy, lending an easy device to throw in some gags in ways that dialogue comedies aren't able to. Aaron's story suckers the viewer into expecting a full-on detective mystery, before taking a wild twist at the end. Aaron's writing only adds to this. Part of the success of the story is the ability of the writing to create everything: atmosphere, mood, and dry humor. The writing is excellent, with the detective's internal monologue serving as a great guide into the 3DMM noir world Aaron has created. Aaron Haynes' great talent is in the presentation. This movie reeks style. From stylised camera angles to wonderfully executed camera moves, Aaron uses his talent not to show off, but always to further the story. Aaron uses some ambitious tricks as well. Most notable were the fan blades and their shadows in the opening sequence. This is one of those stylistic quirks that fits perfectly with the genre, as well as being technically impressive. Pamela is full of visual gags. The nature of the film calls for them and Haynes delivers. There are several instances when the expected does not happen. These gags can be as slight as moving the camera in conjunction with the character's mindset, or as random as the detective fading down the street with a brief detour on top of a building before continuing. Pamela is presented in a mostly dark palette. Haynes has made extensive use of the expansion pack's many shades of grey to create a moody cityscape and office. If Haynes' style for the film could be summed up in one word, it would be moody. Another of Aaron Haynes' strong suits is the visual composition of the film. As said earlier, Haynes uses the expansion pack to an expert degree, utilising shading techniques possible with its large array of textures. Haynes also achieves a remarkable amount of realism for pre-v3DMM movies. Shadows, window-glare, and even lamp-post bright spots all work as their supposed to, a tremendous feat in 3DMM itself. They aren't perfect. Many of Haynes' attempts to blend textures work, until the scene moves. I had many examples of flashing textures as scenes moved. At one point it appeared as if Detective's desk was wildly spinning, when in reality it was just zooming and having texture flashes. This occurred often enough to notice. Although not entirely Haynes' fault (the program has difficulty rendering blended textures correctly), some of these could have been avoided. However, Haynes is a great innovator, so I can see why he'd pursue such effects. Other than that, Haynes has done quite a task and created a remarkably lifelike environment with the limited resources of 3DMM. Pamela boasts an impressive sound design. Though it makes use of a ton of standard 3DMM sound effects, it is a part of the story and the point. (If you haven't seen it, you'll have no IDEA what I'm talking about. Then again, if you haven't seen it... you haven't seen Pamela???) The music goes remarkably well with the story and the action on screen. I, however, especially liked the opening credits sequence for its music, and for Aaron's appreciative use of the text boxes. I also would like to applaud Aaron's use of Richard Cheese in the credits music. It seemed remarkably appropriate, given the point of the movie. And lots has to be made of Jon Barton's voice work. For such a soliloquy-intensive movie, Barton manages to embody the character of Detective and be convincing as he does it. At first, I was a little sceptical as to how Jon's accent would fit the role of Detective, but I completely forgot about it approximately 3 1/37 minutes into the movie. Jon's voice work is yet another banner reason to see this film. He employs a dry sense of humor, and talks through the script without dropping a hat for the funny lines. It works tremendously. I most like his delivery of the line regarding Detective's first instinct when being followed by the shadowy figure with the stretched cube. Aaron Haynes has managed to push his style into yet another genre, one that never really existed before Pamela. One thing about Aaron, though his movies all boast smooth, impressive camera techniques, he builds a new style based on what he's working on. Pamela is an essential download for any kind of 3DMM person ever. It has a couple flaws, but what doesn't? These hardly detract from the experience of one of the defining 3DMM films of 2004.

Redux
Directed by: Aaron Haynes, Gorosaurus
Released: January 2004
Preview Christmas 03 Film Festival movie #11. Oh my god. Without-a-doubt one of the best 3dmm movies ever. Honest. Originally dubbed 'RebirthREDUX' this does have strong connections with Adrian Pikios' classic, '3dmm Rebirth'. The community is on the verge of another armageddon and a load of 3dmm characters are out to do their bit. Of course, this isn't the whole story - I'll just let you find the rest out for yourselves! Much the same as '3dmm Rebirth', 'Redux' has no dialogue. Instead, a hugely strong and dramatic score is used. It works incredibly well. The cast line up is another of the movie's strong points. I love how the directors have included 3dmm characters various community members have created and incorporated them into a movie of their own. The way you recognise characters somehow sucks you into their world, allowing you to relate to them further. The excellent music supports this. The animation is constantly smooth and fluid - probably the best I have seen to date, and some of the special effects used are unbelievable. It is one of the most cinematic and magical 3dmm movies I have seen. Everything has been beautifully and lovingly done and it is obvious that a lot of time and care has been taken to ensure that everything is PERFECT. Even the end credits sequence was fantastically made and thought-out. Goro and Aaron have cleverly included Frankie's Expansion Pack with this movie. Hopefully everyone will now have finally installed it! Goro, Aaron. You have outdone yourselves. You are an inspiration to us all - this is not something you want to miss... Review by Will Cheyney.

Redux DVD Edition
Directed by: Aaron Haynes, Gorosaurus
Released: January 2005
Preview So, one of my favorite 3dmm movies of all time gets the DVD overhaul treatment... It is obvious that Jason and Aaron have put further, phenomenal amounts of effort into this to ensure everything is polished to the highest of all shines. This DVD comes with a host of extras including both the original and extended versions of the film, an extremely informative and enjoyable directors commentary done by the two directors, promotional posters, deleted scenes, the soundtrack, artwork and a whole lot more besides. The all-new extended version features new and reworked scenes (more detail, more frames), a longer battle sequence between Godzilla and the 'Bored with 3dmm Demon', more cameos from well recognised community HMC's, and a tear jerking tribute to Redwampa and Adrian Pikios. The driving dramatic score makes it's return, along with some extra pieces - the powerful music really brings everything to life, sucking you in. The animation and scenery is second to none. You will not have seen anything like it before; who ever thought that a 3dmm movie could be so beautiful? It really would give a depressed 3dmmer a good reason to live. Another thing I thought I'd mention is the way in which the DVD has expertly been arranged and compiled. I am so glad that Aaron and Jason didn't go down the whole 'go to scene 113 for the deleted scenes' route. Instead, everything is neatly organised into directories within the zip file download. A much less messy and infinitely more logical approach, I believe. 'DVDs' within 3dmm tend to get a bit messy, as is obvious after watching movies like 'Deputy'. A tremendous movie, and the perfect way to end what has otherwise been a fairly disappointing Film Festival. Absolute gold. Review by Will Cheyney.

Uprising
Directed by: Aaron Haynes
Released: December 2000
Preview Well this is a cheery little flick isn't it? This is about a boy called BlahBlahBlah who lives in the little village of BlahBlahBlah and wishes to leave the vinicity in search of a better existence and searches for the BlahBlahBlah sword or some crap. What's wrong with John and Exeter? I mean 'Gice' and 'Teric'? Aren't they herbs? Well this appears to be a Pokemon style music and naff scenery combo, combined with confusing character names and annoyingly drawn out plots. I don't like it. There are also no voices in the film which viewing the amount of dialogue proves very useful. Overall it's not a particularly good film, WAY too long and I almost died when the 'To Be Continued' sign flashed up - Do Not Extend This Trash - 5/10. Review by Richard Bevis.

Another classic from the amazing mind of Sir Aaron Haynes. Uprising takes place 2000 years after Vlarion 4 (so if you havent seen the Vlarion series, you might want to do so beforehand) showing new characters, a new quest and a new world. The movie is in the same RPG style as the Vlarion series apart from AV4. This new story begins with 3 new heroes, Gice, Teric and Aiel who set out on a perilous mission to locate the legendary Duel Sword as it could lead to a terrible fate if held in the wrong hands. When Teric places his hand on this mythical weapon, his life will change forever... The Vlarions do not appear in this film as they are now extinct on Earth but in this, they have been replaced by some new villains and creatures. Mimic, the evil shapeshifter is the more remembered character from Uprising. The scenery is pretty old looking now but some of it is still very nicely done. Like Vlarion, there are no voices, instead, there are text boxes. The music is very RPG style and since this movie is just like that type of genre, it's a perfect fit. The animations are very video gamey. The fights are obviously where the most animating takes place and like Vlarion it is creative with all the magic and sword fighting during the fights, especially with the fight against Mimic. If you were a fan of Aarons memorable Vlarion series, or a fan of Aarons movies altogether, this is something you can't miss. The series is yet to be completed but so far, dispite this movies age, it's going to end great! A must download. Review by Ben Rice.

Vlarion
Directed by: Aaron Haynes
Released: June 2000
Preview Quite a nice movie this, it does have some scenes that come with 3dmm in it inspired from RPG games such as Final Fantasy. Occasional slow moments are made up for by great battle scenes and though there is no speech, the animation is good and the soundtrack terrific. The best no-speech movie I have ever seen. Marvelous ideas with a touch of inspiration from games like Final Fantasy. It also comes with three wonderful fonts. Worth the download
