    They were badly created effects, and the bad acting kind of brought it down a bit.

    LoL, the effects were crap. But the little kids trying-to-be-cocky attitude totally made me laugh. It was like seein a 12 year odl version of the villain from Bloodsport. I wanted to see a little 12 year old Van Damme come in and get pounded by crap effects.

    And don`t get me wrong, I ain`t sayin the kid didn`t do a good job. For how old he is that took some patience. Just amateur effects in general are hard to make look good without some REAL effort.

    Eh... I really think I-A-B should get to know After Effects before giving this kid such praise. A lot of the effects are pretty basic and some even come preset in After Effects. It`s nothing big. I mean, yeah, sure, it`s great that a little kid can do this but like I said, it`s nothing big. Toying around in After Effects can easily give you the result of this video.

    For his age he`s done well. With afew more years he should be making movies that people will argue about whether its "photoshoped" (even though its obviously after affects. Never quite understood how ppl don`t know the difference between images and movies)

    Having done alot of work with after effects and other editing programs, i would have to say that these effects are pretty simple to do. You can find tutorials on line for these almost anywhere. The red X on some of his effects are because he is using an unpaid for plugin that generates the effect he was making. but all in all for someone his age not bad. if he keeps it up he could have a career.

    Someone teach that kid what a VU meter is! What? I can`t hear anything after the 1000db music! Yeah, I`ve got a volume button, but even at 1/100 it was still blasting me out of my chair.

    JJXanadu, I`m there with you. I was the computer god back in the 80`s and early 90`s. I remember being called in to the principal`s office to revive the school`s "grade" computer even after the local computer repair shop couldn`t get it fixed. Now I don`t even know what to do with an RSS feed! I guess when you get older, you just have less time to sit around and play. It sucks, but hey, we can drink and don`t have to sneak around to have sex :)

    "Ignore the red X"

    Maybe I don`t want to ignore it! Just because you fail!

    None of that is particularly hard when you know how. Its just a case of making the effects and tracking it frame by frame.
