<a href="">Virtual Adams First and Last ...</a> - a <a href="">Moviestorm Machinima</a> by <a href="">lorisrizzo</a> on <a href="">Koinup</a>

Accordin to Matt Kelland, Virtual Adam's First and Last birthday: "the video was absolutely superb. Sound is good, lighting, filming and editing is good, and the concept, while not entirely original, is well executed, and the writing is really interesting. You find yourself actually caring about Virtual Adam for a few moments, in that you know he's only a character, but he's a person too. I also like that it has subtitles, and isn't just catering for an English-speaking audience"

Along with the 1st winner, the judges decided to pick a couple of other videos for some honorary -well - deserved mentions. The first mention is Nowhere to go by Celestina

Thanks. It's pleasant and unusual to receive good news on a Monday. It took 2 days each to make my 2 videos, learning how to use the demo of Moviestorm. My impression is that it's easy to use and productive. I hope to make other good machinima using the full version. My new and old works are available at and
