Manaiakalani Film Festival - Minecraft Movie

We decided to use Minecraft as a publishing, narrative tool. We decided to do this as we find it a really engaging way to depict a story. First we had to create our own original world, that couldn't be burnt down! We had to be really determined during this process and it took us quite a while. Once we had our world and storyboards planned out, we used screen capture to capture the footage, that we wanted, from different angles. All that was left then, was to add our own voice overs, to create the narrative plot. We really hope you enjoy our movie and please leave comments below! By Matthew, Zeb and Lawson.

Hi Guys

I really liked your movie and how it was made in a game instead of what you would usually expect a movie to be made from. My favorite part was when he went to sleep and woke up somewhere else.

Your movie about mine craft was fantastic. It was an creative animation. Your movie was just as good as our one but a little bit more creative. What inspired you to do this Mine Craft movie.

Iron said...

Hi Stone Fields,
What a nice mine craft movie you created. I like how you created the building and how you talk in the back round. Keep it up Stone Fields!

Hey Stonefields,

Your video was amazing. I myself am a Minecraft fan, and this was a true highlight. I have made my own Minecraft movie, but it isn't as cool as yours.

Keep up the good work!

Hi Matthew, Zeb and Lawson

Well done for creating a really cool movie. I have a student in my class who enjoys using Minecraft so I've passed on the link to this movie for him to view. I thought that your movie was creative, original and interesting. Great script and voice overs. Well done you clever people!

Dorothy said...

Hi Matthew, Zeb and Lawson, this is a truly creative movie and I am so sorry that through a programming error it was not shown at Sylvia Park Film Festival yesterday. I am pleased the link is on the Film Festival website though and people are getting to enjoy it anyway.

Keep sharing your Minecraft movies. We enjoy them.

Well done boys (and all involved) on creating an amazing movie. It must have taken you quite a while to plan and create this. I really enjoyed the voiceover too. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Hi Learning hub 9
I really like your movie but all I learned in this not to sleep in museums and not to get stuck underground. Did you download or make the map? I have made a minecraft animation using google presentations.
Keep up the good work
Thomas

Greshka said...

Hey Hub 9! Your movie is awesome! I like how you've added the voice to your movie. How did you make the movie from Minecraft?

Joseph said...

The animation in your movie is outstanding well done

Matthew P said...

Hi Everybody
Thankyou for leaving good comments and feedback!
I loved all of your movies too.
Alot of you have asked how we made this movie in Minecraft. We used Quick TimePlayer on a Mac computer to record the footage, and to edit it of course we used iMovie.
