Must-See Tips!

nessa's picture

We get lots of emails from users asking how they can get their first must-see. Here are some tips:

  • Be original - is it a story we haven't seen before?
  • Be funny - movies that make us chuckle are always a good bet.
  • Tell a story - make sure your movie has a beginning, a middle and an end.

Hope these help steer you in the right direction!

Do you have any movie-making tips? Let us know below!

TIps Cont. 3 (Promise this is the last one, folks):
7. Just keep on trying and don't complain. You'll just be known as that movie maker who makes rubbish movies and complains about everyone all the time. Be positive! You can do it and eventually you'll score a big one.
8. Try not to Calibo-write. Only do this if it's a Calibo-write contest or if the maker permits it.
Enjoy all your movie making, my friends!

Tips Cont. 2 (Why can we only have 500 characters long? INCLUDING spaces???):
6. If your movie hasn't been made a Must-See in a few days, it probably will never become one. Don't be too disappointed if your movie of the century doesn't go down as good as you'd hoped.

Tips Cont.: 3. Try to keep

Tips Cont.:
3. Try to keep the characters to a minimum. It gets confusing when you use Edgar for Tom, Sam AND Harry.
4. Please use correct grammar. I can’t tell you how much it pains me to watch a movie tat tawks lik dis Or Like This. I beg of you.
5. Try not to have reality shows with open sign-ups. When you boot them off a season, they can get mad at you. Or you develop their character to their distaste, and hold you to it. Not a good idea, folks.

My tips: 1. Don't be afraid

My tips:
1. Don't be afraid to be creative! If it's a comedy, make a funny little twist at the end. Use the clips for something other than what the tag says. Making a movie about swimming? Use the floating clip. Potion-making? The cooking clip.
2. If you're stuck for an idea, watch some other user's movies. Great entertainment, keep up with what the other members are talking about, and of course use them for inspiration!

Dear Site Editors,
I have a question to ask you. What countries is the Zimmer Twins more popular in? I know that the Zimmer Twins are most popular in Canada, USA and Australia, right? But on one website (outside of The Zimmer Twins) I read that 45 percent of The Zimmer Twins' users live in Pakistan. Is this true? It's very hard to believe for me that this is true. So please tell me, what countries is ZT most popular?
-Blah :)

@rad256 Yes, Denmark is #1

@rad256
Yes, Denmark is #1 happiest country! Canada is #2 and Australia is #3 (according to what I saw there are many different lists)! Some lists put Canada # 1 and Australia #2, or Canada #2 and Australia #1. I know this may sound weird, but there was a list that ranked The Bahamas #5 happiest country! Can you believe that The Bahamas is happier than all but 4 countries?
-Blah :)

Did you know Denmark is the

Did you know Denmark is the #1 Happiest Country? Poland used to be #10 a few years ago,but after Lech Kaczynski and other 90 officials died in April 2010's plane crash,things ground-rocketed (Opposite of sky-rocketed) and it barely makes it #50!

I just found on the 'Aaron Leighton' website that he published a book called 'Spirit City Toronto'! It's a book with pages of photo's from Toronto and in each photo, there's a cute character! It's awesome :)

Stay orginal and try to think

Stay orginal and try to think of an amazing idea that no-one has come up with. If you're having trouble, look at your surroundings for inspiration (I usually do that). Check your spelling mistakes and if you're not sure how to spell a word, look it up, don't be lazy :) Make sure your puncuation is correct and don't use text talk like: u, gtg, brb... in your movies :)

Here are some tips-
1. Double check your movie before you publish. You want to make sure that everything has good capitalization and good grammar.
2. Make sure you don't copy an idea or collaborate. Even if you change something, there's always the origanal button so people can see how different it is.
3. Don't ask people to rate it 5/5. If you get enough rates for a must-see, you probably won't get one if you did this-it won't count 'cause you asked people to do it.

A good movie making tip is to check your spelling before saving your movie. It makes you seem more professional. Also check your capitalization Because You Don't Do This. I forgot who does that but you should consider my advice. Thanks. OH! And also, check that you phrased everything correctly so it makes sense. Just check everything.
