My first iclone movie was a 2 minute 'Pinhead' ad for a competition that Alley and others were hosting.
It took a couple of weeks to make it as I knew practically nothing about iclone or how to make an animated story.
The first tutorial I remember watching was "The Dingy Room" tute by Mark Pleasant. It's about creating a room
complete with lighting etc. I would venture it would be a great tutorial to start with. No better tutor than Mark and his
video will have you experimenting with basic lighting.

From there I just experimented until I got better. My next vid was 9 minutes. My videos now go about 20 to 30 minutes and
take me, with voices, music, sfx, and a perfectionist personality, about 2 years to finish. Remember you have to do EVERYTHING
on your movie yourself.(producers hat) You make many of the sets and props (construction hat), you have to write the story (writers hat),
you have to teach the actors how to walk and talk (acting coach hat), you may have to make clothing (seamstress hat), you have to
block and shoot the scene (directors hat), you have to actually shoot the scene (cameramans hat) and you have to put it all together in
the editing room (editors hat) and get it seen. ( distributors hat). So a very long video can be both time-consuming and taxing. You'll soon
realize that those BIG GUYS in Hollywood have it easy.
I just wanted to give you an idea as to why it's good to start small and work your way up to a 'full-length' project. I'm looking forward to
seeing the stories you bring to the screen, I'm sure they'll be interesting. Good luck, we're here to help, just ask the forum and you'll get
all the help you need. pete
