-----------------------------------------
Grab some audio from any of the CAGcasts and put together a short Flash movie. Under 10 minutes is recommended.
I guess it doesn't have to be flash, but it does have to be a movie.

Best movie as judged by Cheapy & Wombat will win $100. Deadline is December 31st 2006.

Entries should be emailed to me (cheapyd at cheapassgamer dotcom) or posted in this thread. Email is better as it will prevent people from stealing your work/ideas.

You can use the assets below to get you started:

Quick question Cheapy, does it HAVE to be flash?

I can do something with video (a quicktime, Windows Media, Real Player or something uploaded to YouTube for example) based on the same criteria.
Currently Playing: Borderlands 2 (360), Black Ops (360)

I'm almost done with mine... it has barely anything to do with CAG, but I think it'll make alot of people happy... oh, and it's not a movie, it's an actual application.

I'm 90% done with mine... need to add a sound clip from CAGCAST now and work on the menus :)

note: when you see it, 99% of the whole thing was created from scratch. The only thing I am using from an outside source is the music.

Here it is:

The first unofficial, hope to soon be official, Cheap Ass Gamer PC arcade video game:

be sure to read the readme and note that it won't run on a Mac.

I spent 2 days non-stop on this and enjoyed doing quite so.

What programs are out there to make small videos, like trailers? I've always wanted to make one.

you can always use the windows movie editor that comes built in with windows XP... though I hate it it's better than nothing.

Windows Movie Maker, you mean?

That's what I used for mine, it's simple but it works pretty well, it has all the basic necessary tools and features and has a simple interface

exactly, but sometimes I can't stand it since it makes some choices for you when editing movies. I prefer Adobe Premier, but I no longer have that tool. but yeah, WMM gets the job done. Probably the best part is that you can save in .WMV which makes some huge file sized movies into a more condensed file without loosing too much.

Well it was a good run

Possibly a runners-up prize, judges?
