Thanks so much for the Daily 1st!!
Woo Thanks for the Front Page!!

===This is a Serious Documentary so if you want to learn something then watch it===
==Don't review/rate it bad because it isn't funny or isn't action packed==

First, of all I am extremely happy, I won an award for Environment Excellence. Not sure if it is best film about the environment or best film in the category even though I was entered in the Documentary category, but anyways Woot.

My school recieved a grant from the PG & E to help improve my school's computer labs and stuff, but the deal was that we needed to create movies about energy efficiency. So I decided to make my movie about Hydroelectricity. This originally was suppose to be live-action, but I was lazy and my multimedia teacher(Mr. Cutts) told me to animate it because of how much time I wasted doing nothing in class. So I created this about 2 months ago and my teacher recently sent this into a film festival and I won in Environment Excellence.

3 Gorges(The Dam used throughout the movie) and Hydroelectric Diagram were both traced. Although I will take credit for coloring and animating them.

Why Wind Farm Suck is an Audio in this documentary about me ranting about how useless Wind Farms are if you are stuck in a dome.(Joke don't take seriously)

This is a Pro Documentary showing all the Pros in Hydroelectricity not the Cons.

++Wow, thanks for all the reviews even though some reviewed bad. I would respond to all, but I decided I would be repeating myself. If you really want me to answer then PM me.(Answer a Question not respond to your review)++




Nice, but its easier said then done. The job factor is a large one in itself. And the fact that you can end up flooding large ecosystems, and drying out others. Hydroelectric power is good, but the amount of money it costs to build one, and the area you need would need to meet specific demands before.

People find this review helpful!

A+ guys

Very informative. The only problem with hydroelectric plants is that we don't have enough rivers or lakes in this country to power all of our homes, although it certainly would help our energy costs. I think they're quite expensive to build though.

Anyway, nicely done


HUH! oh ye that was great not...YAAAWN!

Highly Informational

YOu learn a lot in this, but you neglect to point out that Dams ruin the environment and often deal more harm than good, since global warming causes damage in the longterm, but Dams cause immediate crippling short term damage.


Interesting, but you cant say hidroeletrics make no harm to enviroment. It floods a huge area destroying wildlife and unholming people. And not to mention the river wildlife.
Still, it is far better than termoeletrics.
I hope your schools gets your computers, the video was well made. Good you made it short so people dont get bored easily.
