It's fun to watch! Obviously, don't expect anything amazing.
I love the ending.

Surprisingly decent.

Admittedly, the writing's nothing special (Shadowrun slang fucking sucks in German; it transcends language barriers), the acting's not great, and the directing's only okó but that is all well above average for zero budget fan films. Hell, the editing's alright and the cinematography is actually pretty good at times (a couple of shots are actually really good for an indie short).

Better editing and better directing could have hidden the low budget, though. Doing the helo shot at night (as opposed to day, as in the trailer) is a good example of making the best of precious little, but the gunfight at the end is a complete mess that just looks like cosplayers running around a building with no idea of what to do. Doesn't help that the costume design is pretty bad. They even have the requisite notverytoughguy in ridiculous armor and a ponytail.

A few haircuts, better lighting, and $100 at a thrift shop could have yeilded much better results. Not much of an attempt is made to hide the airsoftiness of the guns, either, which is a shame, considering that with more aggressive cinematography, editing, and direction, that firefight could actually have been really good. Still, I had fun, and it does have a lot of charm.

You will need Divx to play it properly.

Also, you need to follow the instructions in the attached text file (it is called READ_ME_FIRST.txt for a reason) to get the subtitles to work. Remember to activate the subtitles in Windows Media Player as well.

I am currently trying to get the subtitles hard-coded into the video so that everyone can enjoy the mvoie without having to hassle with anything but the newest Divx codec. This should be ready in the next few days.

I'd appreciate some hard burned English subs. Not everyone I want to pass this on to is able to deal with external subs.

Good project :smokin:

Just a correction: Last Team Standing is from the 2004/5 Kurzfilm Contest, so we refer to it as the 2004 contest. So as not to confuse it with the real 2005 Contest, which of course is the 2005/6 Contest :spin:. I think.

I haven't seen all the movies of the 2004 contest (some were just to painfull), but the ones from last year (the real 2005 Contest :D) are all amazing. In one way or the other. The acting might be bad in one, the other is full af cliche, still another has not-so-good sound etc.
Just writing this, I think I should see them all again;).

Didn't watch it with subs (For various reasons). The mingun was a nice touch, but also cheesy as hell (there's no way to get around it. It's a effing minigun). And someone will have to explain the plush cat to me outside of "It's a plush cat the J liked" in the event there's anything more (not that there's anything wrong with that, but I am not slightly intrigued).

It was supposed to represent a real cat.

Now, why they couldn't just get a real cat, I have no idea.

German Fanpro Site, Movie section

There are links to both 2004 and 2005 contestants. I don't know if they are all still active, and of course the movies are all in german.

I recommend the eMule Versions (links also on that site), because the quality should be much better.

I do need the best quality copies of Tor3 and Todesvision I can get (for the future subtitle projects).

Both versions i have are quite small and shifty when compared to LTS quality. EMule wouldn't work for me, so could anyone let em know if they have better versions?

I'm going to save the movie file, anti-viral scan it, then unzip it later. After watching the trailer for it, I'm interested.

Why... would you scan a movie for viruses?

Superfly: you should be able to get eMule to work on at least a lowid, even if your firewall doesn't allow the necessary ports open.

That's because .wmv is not true video.

.avi? .mpg? These are not rare.

Also, notably, all the file formats with exploits are almost invariably Microsoft formats.

There is an exploit in avi, as well, though I think mpeg is still clean. [e] Mpeg has an apparent exploit, too. The reason MS has the most exploits is in part because they are the most common (with unneeded levels of functionality).

The mpg exploit is basically just another Microsoft Unnecessary Extra Shit exploit. Admittedly wasn't aware of the avi exploit, though it doesn't seem like it was ever that big.

Yeah, both were mostly contained and more of a player problem. A lot of the issues with video and audio viruses will be from digital rights management. It's practically a Trojan in functionality...
