How to Make Funny Movies Online
There is only one thing better than watching a funny movie, and that's making a funny movie that you can share with friends. Most of us have no idea how to make a movie or have the technical expertise to do so, but thankfully the Internet makes it easy. The Dvolver MovieMaker uses flash-based movie clips and is a free online interface that allows users to choose backgrounds, plots, characters, dialogue and music for their very own movie clip to share with friends.
Open your computer's web browser and surf to dvolver.com. Click on the "movie maker" button at the top of the screen just to the right of the Dvolver logo. When the MovieMaker v2 graphic appears, click on it. This will take you to the Dvolver MovieMaker program.
Choose a background for your animated movie by scrolling through the list of available backgrounds, then choose a sky that will appear behind your background. Don't be afraid to experiment with different backgrounds and skies to see what you like. When you have made your choice, click on the "NEXT" link at the bottom of the screen.
Choose a plot from the list of those available---Rendez-vous, Pick-up, Chase or Soliloquoy. Clicking on any of them will allow you to see a preview of the plot. For example, if you pick Rendez-vous, two characters enter the frame and meet in the middle. They have a conversation and then leave the frame. Once you have chosen your plot, click on the "NEXT" button at the bottom of the screen.
Select each of the characters for your movie by scrolling through those available. Click on any of them to see a graphic depiction and a description appear to the right of the screen. Once you have selected your characters, click on the "NEXT" button at the bottom of the screen.
Enter the dialogue between your characters (or for your solo character if you chose the Soliloquoy plot line,) then click on the "NEXT" link at the bottom of the screen.
Choose the music for your movie by clicking on the list of tunes available and listening to samples. When you have selected one, click on the "FINISH MOVIE" link at the bottom of the screen.
Pick a title design for the introduction of your movie from the list of those available, and click on each to see examples. Give your movie a title and enter your name in the labelled spaces, then click on the "PREVIEW & SEND MOVIE" link at the bottom of the screen.
Watch the preview of your movie. If you would like to make any changes, click on the "BACK" link at the bottom of the screen and revisit the screens where you'd like to make changes. Once you are satisfied with your movie, fill in the areas marked "Recipient Name(s)," "Recipient Email(s)," and "Your Email" to have a link to your movie sent to yourself and your friends. They will be able to click on the link they receive to view your movie online.
