    Most of these are at my channel,please check them out, its very appreciated.I enjoy any feedback, just please no flaming, constructive criticism. There are so many I don't want to make a topic for all of them. Some of the more notable (I think):

    - This is me killing my "clone". I didn't have another actor so I used split screen. I used that to test my gun blow back, blood splat, and muzzle flash effects. Very easy to do, yet one of my favs.

    me shooting a gun. No reason at all, other than to test my muzzle flash and blow back effects.

    - Similar to first video posted above. First version. There is no blowback of the gun.

    this is my energy ball creation.

    Me tossing around energy balls

    Not very impressive but still one of favs. Its one of the good earlier videos I made. Me getting hit by a car.

    very old - light sabers. Not the best sound effect job though.

    Nice work mate! I love the light sabre one [​IMG] The only thing you should work on a bit more is the SFX, but nevertheless the visual effects are pretty damn cool! Except for the split screen thingy, I wouldn't know how to do any of those!

    Goodjob mate. Those vids looks great.
    My one point for improvement would be the movement of the energy balls when you're throwing them. They looked too controlled. Would've been nice to see some more ease-in's and ease-out's.

    Overall, some great clips. Keep up the good work. :>

    Thanks for the feedback, guys, its appreciated.

    In my defense (For an excuse)...

    If your interested, the split screen is probably one of the easiest tricks, its only difficult to time and CAN be somewhat difficult to make it look real. In that gun shot video, if you look real close you'll notice a mistake, this will give away how the trick is done.
