|GHOST [c] The is the preliminary release trailer for my hero 'Ghost', she a creation dating back some 20+ years now. Essentially this is a character destined for a graphic novel now in production. It’s decidedly a rough first effort for 3d animation. I was looking for more feel than anything else. Hope you enjoy it. For more information visit www.ghost.alpc.com|

Downloading at the moment, but from what I see it looks amazing.
Professional too, I mean you got Copyright, wow.

Great stuff! Some fantastic images in there, really beautiful work.
Somehow you managed to use the most cliched piece of 'trailer music' in the world.....and use it better than anybody else ever has. It worked perfectly.
The mid-section with the text should be kind of irritating or dull, but it's really quite captivating - perhaps because of the use of music again: you know something big is going to come when the music breaks out into the crescendo.
Two things I'd be careful of, however, is the font used for the title - which is very similar to the one used for the 1991 film 'Ghost', with Patrick Swayze - and the tagline on the website 'A Hero 3000 Years in the Making', which is a bit too Jurassic Parky.
Can't wait to see the graphic novel....is it going to be widely available?

That's some great 3D. Some beautiful scenes, the light seemed really good to me, although some FX didn't fit in with the rest!

Seemed a bit more like a book than a video trailer ( too much text for me )
Interested to know a few things,
Copyright the film Ghost, can you copyright a title that is already outthere ?
what software did you use.
Other than than, it looks great

Indeed, it had awesome visual 3D work, bu sadly I wasn't too impressed with the length of the text intertitles, I feel they could have been written with more depth or impact.. or maybe edited at a faster rate instead.
Still, very impressive but I await a movie for my decision to vote

Thanks for the input.
This is in a constant state of flux [trailer], I'm reworking it based on your [and other suggestions]. To answer a couple of questions.
1. Yes, I [you, anyone really] can copyright a name even if it's used previously. GHOST, when seen, can no way be confused with the GHOST movie with Demi Moore et all. There is also a comic hero named GHOST and several Japanese films of the same name. Copyright comes in when either A: someone else tries to claim the work as their own or B: the character/story/images resemble the original work so close as to confuse the viewer as to which is original and which is new. There are other restrictions but it gets boring.
2. Software: Poser, 3DS MAX, AlamDV2, Particalillusion, Premiere
The trailer is being reworked with a different music/sfx bed. It is a bit long word wise as presented but was looking for feedback from folks who havent seen it a million times [namely me]. More to come.

Well done! Well done!
The only thing I would change about the trailer, is instead of the text, I would have narrated with an voice over. Which simply means more animated action sequences to correspond with the words. But, that should be no problem since you already do a good job with the animation that you already did.
again, Well done!
