UK 3dmm default samples
Directed by: Various
Released: October 1995
Preview This download contains the collection of sample movies that came bundled with UK edition of 3D Movie Maker. Unforgettable by anyone who owned 3dmm shortly after it's release, these movies were our early inspiration. I thought I'd add this pack to the site as the movies included in the US edition of 3dmm are somewhat different; some have been strangely edited, and both have their own regional exclusives. Download for the sakes of nostalgia if nothing else. Review by Will Cheyney.

Ultra Music Video
Directed by: Thierry Lacombe
Released: July 2000
Preview It's very odd, just as I rooted this old movie out, guess who should make a sudden re-appearence in the community? None other than Thierry himself. This oldie basically just goes through a few songs whilst showing off some then-very impressive scenery made by himself and taken from other movies, such as DIA, and Litterbug 2. Although the first minute of watching the non-stop action, noise and explosions is rather impressive, it does start to get a little tedious, especially when Thierry repeats his "Blue Mountain" preview scenes. Nevertheless, a classic. Review by Will Cheyney.

Undertaker, The
Directed by: Corey Hartly
Released: March 2003
Preview A nice funny short with a twist from the lesser known director, Corey Hartley! As this is a movie that takes you by surprise, I'm not going to say anything else about the movie. It cracked me up because I was sat there wondering where the hell it was going. Scenery is certainly very basic, and there is very little animation - but to be honest, it doesn't need anything better. I like it because I think the director realised this and didn't go OTT and concentrated on the comedy. Great stu

Uno
Directed by: Kim Turley
Released: June 2001
Preview Finally! Kim has finished his drama, Uno. Its nothing new to me as I've been continuously seeing Uno throughout its development... but I never seem to grow tired of it; there's something about it. I think its just down to the fact that I have seen the shear amount of work Kim has put into making this movie. The movie is reasonably well choreographed. The animation is average, but sometimes suffers from 'jumping'. The scenery is sufficiently detailed. No OTT (over the top) action, and a good and well timed soundtrack - some of which is composed by Kim himself. However, I don't think that the movie lived up to the hype that surrounded it.

Unreal Tournament Team Arena Teaser
Directed by: Leslie Wai
Released: February 2003
Preview A very sweet teaser (oh it teases!) for a new movie by Leslie. Leslie has to be one of the most promising newbies there is - some of the effects in this movie are fantastic! For example, he has managed to create flowing, rippling flags that almost look real. The music was excellently fitting, and the weapons previewed look cool. Penciled in for this summer, I can't wait!

Upcoming Project Trailers
Directed by: Richard Bevis
Released: August 2005
Preview This is a collection of three trailers originally intended to be released separately but especially compiled for the 2005 Summer Film Festival. There are trailers for 'The Eremite' (an eremite is a Christian hermit/recluse for those who don't know), 'Garden Gnomes' and 'Kathy'. All three appeared to be of the horror/dark genre and were generally quite entertaining, albeit a little unoriginal. Every movie appeared to be a take on either an existing movie or book. All of the trailers play on the typical Hollywood movie trailer theme, with dramatic music, quick cuts and deep, droning narration. The voice acting wasn't quite right and I recommend Richard hires community voice talents when it comes to actually finishing the movie. All three of the trailers were put together surprisingly well; they were short and to the point, something where many trailers flounder. A couple of the sound effects used were a little unnecessary, particularly the screaming that was repeated ad nauseam in 'Garden Gnomes'. There was a point in the 'Kathy' trailer also where the dialogue was KO'd by the overpowering soundtrack. The animation was overall very average, ranging from 'pretty good' to 'very shaky'. I think Richard just needs a little more practice; perhaps he should have a look at 3dmmAP as well. With these three movies in the pipeline, as well as his Big Brother series set to be unleashed soon, Richard looks like he has his work cut out for him for the foreseeable future. I just hope he doesn't make the classic mistake of taking too much onboard and failing to deliver. 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.

Urban Warrior
Directed by: Sergon
Released: August 2001
Preview An action movie based around Urban Warfare sounds like your standard gang violence movie, doesnít it? Well, Urban Warfare is from the perspective of the Police and a renegade cop trying to solve the mystery of both the renegade cop and what the gangs are doing in the town. After various twists and turns, the plot settles down to trying to stop the rival gangs from destroying the city. The presentation is full of moving cameras, slow motion and lots of rotation. In short, itís fun to watch. Though many of the camera tricks have been used before, itís always fun to see them executed as well as in this film. These camera tricks lend a great sense of fun and take some of the weight off of the plot which involves tons of death. There are uneven times, though, when youíll see some places move faster than others, or see that some things donít match the camera. These are only slightly annoying and donít detract too much from the movie. The visuals are well done. Though a lot of it can be fairly basic, such as prop-based scenery, many scenes involve intricate composition which shows a great amount of care put into the visuals. There are many well done special effects, which include bullet time, and an energetic car chase which merits being watched twice. The voice acting is not the movieís strong suit. Though it is better than some, too often the voices are overwhelmed by the music and sound effects. Some scenes suffer greatly, including the scene where you find out why everything was happening in the first place. Overall, Urban Warrior is a fun action flick that benefits from a slick camera style to give much of the element of fun. A worthwhile download. Review by Andrew Salter.
