Thanks a lot! The trailer went $100 million over-budget and the Government are chasing me because it was so expensive it has caused economic collapse. Certain actors turned up for the shoot and were never seen again, so I'm ducking their families as well...

Yeah, veeery nice stuff there.

One problem I thought, though, and this is quite a serious film-making issue (you did film studies at uni, right? I'd have thought you'd know about this already), is that I didn't think we see nearly enough of the vampire with the beard and the red shirt. I can't help but feel that the Big Bad should have featured for at least 70-90% of the running time of the trailer.

Yes, definately some great shots...
Some of the actors (face expression for example) we're not the best and that decreased the whole thing a little.
But most of the lightning especially was very very well done!! Looks cool.

well, they could only use multi-million dollar actors, like TGO said, not the multi-billion dollars one you normal see smile

The mass lightsabre battle will get a lot of people going 'ooooh', I should imagine. After all, not even George Lucas has done that yet. (beat him to it by a coupla months)

last thing - the scene with the people with the lightsabers is really well done, though it looks akward with like 8 people in the middle of a field . . . . . .

She used to be in my Film Noir seminars when I was a second year. She hasn't sat on my bed, but I would like her to.

Were you? Cool. Were you in the one when I made the Orson Welles/Transformers link?

Randomly small world indeed.

I really wanted to use the Obi Wan guy more. After all, he is blatantly the most talented guy in the whole piece. Unfortunately staring at him for too long can cause blindness from the light of his beauty...

Obviously none of you have any clue about good acting. Blatantly the most heroic actor was the first swat guy. What a performance! It had everything from the giddy highs to the dirty lows, and conveyed emotions to me I've never felt before (good ones, not the "kick in the nuts" type ones). This guy should get an Oscar, jeez give him his own award ceremony.

I don't suppose anyone has his address because I'm doing a cake collection which I intend to truck over to him.

The one in the respirator that gets blasted is the best. Just the way he conveys emmotion from his eyes. They really speak to the audience and say, " Holy crap! biggrin on a serious note. I am with C3 on this one the chick with lines.... DADDY LIKE-IE!

Yeah, but are the girls wearing long black coats? I don't think so.

Just wait until Blade 2 comes out. Then you'll *all* be dressing like the bearded vampire. Then you'll be sorry.

Mwu-hahaahaha!

Our Trinity really is a babe, isn't she... I think she and Obi-wan should perhaps work on a crossover Matrix/Starwars blue movie or something...

Furthermore, you only see true acting with the grimaces of action on Obi's face. What a legend that guy is...

One thing I just noticed (don't ask) is that the Lara Croft segment is framed by the words 'easy' and 'sexy'.

Was this deliberate?

Better watch out. She has big guns, you know.

...it originally came out 'easy' and 'cheap' so I thought I had better change it. 'Sexy' is all I could think of, having been staring at her for hours... Not an awful lot better, I know but the titles are meant to refer to the previous shot, ie. Lara's 'Sexy', Jim and Joss are 'Easy' to emulate (this was gonna say 'Twats' but I decided to change that, too...) biggrin

I'm thinking a spoof trailer is called for.... biggrin

Can I request the title 'Bearded Fool'?

Oh, and when are the individual scenes going to be released? I want to see me looking like a fool in its entirety.
