In case you're wondering, yes, Tom Neyman will be returning in the role of The Master. What a great way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Manos, which will be in 2016.

Silent Movie PSA

I often wonder if patrons were annoyed by people talking during a movie back in the silent film era. After all, you didn't need to listen to a silent movie. In early moving pictures (movies to you and me)you had to read the dialogue in what was called an intertitle. The only sound you usually heard was someone playing live piano music in the theater in sync to the action on screen.

New "Manos" Movie Poster

I created a new thumbnail image for the Manos: The Hands of Fate movie on my YouTube channel so I figured I might as well create a movie poster to go along with it. That's right. This is the official  Movie Vigilante YouTube Channel "Manos: The Hands of Fate" movie poster.

Movie Vigilante Feature Presentation Intro

Movie VigilanteHere's a short and simple animated intro I made for my YouTube channel.

I was thinking this would also be good to use when showing backyard theater movies. It would be like having your own little drive-in.

It wasn't too hard to make. I used two different images for my MV logo. The first is a dull red and the second is a brighter red with a glowing effect, all of which I created in CorelDraw. I added some sound effects; a switch sound and a running film projector.

I used Windows Movie Maker to animate the whole video. The film flicker and the special effects transition were achieved using some of its features.

If you want more specific details or instructions on how to create one of your own animated intros, leave me a comment.
