This the teaser trailer for my upcoming movie: Clones Are Not Enough.

We only had enough time to film 3 scenes, so the trailer does not show alot of the movie.

Hope you enjoy!!!

Um. no.
That wasn't cohesive or anything. Dialogue and scenes were randomly cut up and threw together with some pasty base like some pot roast. You can't even really have a feel for what's going on. Not to mention some weird problem with the framing, black bars would click in mid-way in a scene.

Maybe repost after you get some more shots in.

i had no idea at all what the hell was going on in that "teaser trailer" ...you should definitly work on the sound cuz its reallly bad i didnt understand one word and it was just edited horribly...i suggest you go watch some trailers on www.apple.com and go to quicktime and movie trailers and watch some to see how to really do trailers...

sorry, but that looked pretty bad. was that supposed to be lightning at the beginning? the greenscreening didnt look very good either, and whyd you leave the orange caps on the guns? it just didnt look very good.

lmao, im sorry man, but that def wasnt a trailer. I dont mean to be mean but it came off as a comedy to me, especially when the trailer just ends all of the sudden and u see the movie poster, that was hilarious. Word of advice.. never include the movie poster in your trailer. Bring up the audio when people are talking because the only line i heard was "control yourself" or sum'm like that. The green screen was pretty bad. I agree with streetssk8erdc when he said to go to apple.com and watch some of the movie trailers on there. Or you could even look at some of the trailers on this website to get a feel for what they should look like. I hope the final version of your film is better editing than this was... confused

I just watched it again. It's hilarious because it doesn't make any sense with respect to anything: not story telling, not editing technique, not action, not composition, etc.

Oh that was good. Keep making stuff like this and you'll get 5 stars every time in the "so bad it's funny" department.

HERE HERE!! 5 Stars!

I don't want to be rude either...

But the cuts were to many, and it cut to almost the same scene as before... The sound was horrible, Couldn't hear a thing... Editing wasn't great etiher, But you'll probably learn, as said watch some trailers at the net, look at them how they are edited with sound, cuts, scenes, effects etc.
A trailer usully followes this thing when it starts out pretty calm and easy and going upwards and at the end, Kaboom something cool happens, and then comes the title...

When your are greenscreeing, Dont do that when you actully can do it IRL, it always will look better ! so next time just attach a camera to your bíke and do it !


But I think you will learn your ways to.. look around! It will help alot !

Better luck next time

I agree, this trailer isn't that great... but that's because I did not put any time in it. I basically just got excited about getting AlamDV 2 that I had to post something,lol. I just took scenes ramdomly and stuck em together and voila!


The green screening was made with a cheap program. I am not too proud of it but it doesn't look too bad, and there is no freaking way for me to stick a camera on the bike, first of all, too much risk, second of all the person chasing in back is the same person as in front.....hence the title Clones Are Not Enough....

hopefully you will enjoy the final product.

Ok, why are you removing it now? Because people said it was bad because you threw it together in five seconds, and didn't even finish filming the whole movie before making a trailer?

Yeah....basically.


And for those of you who don't know what a teaser trailer is... It's just to show glimpses of the movie, not explain it or anything else.

wasn't lucky enough to get a chance to watch it, but from what I've read here, this didn't even tease, it more piddled.

Yes, most of us here know what a teaser trailer is... and usually the point of a teaser trailer is to leave you wanting to see more... this didnt really make me want to see more.
