I saw it in one of your previous posts. It looks cool. I see that Chromanator has opened new options for you, with the guy splitting in half. hehe. I would give it a 3.

Looks good, cant wait for the actual film, but its kind of hard to understand whats going on in some parts
Also, when you see the dead bodies, you can see them twitching, not a big issue but just a small fault. smile

looks like there will be much better acting in this one then in past projects biggrin looks promising, although will it be fast pace? As far as the trailer goes, it told me a lot about the movie, and was well put together razz however there wasnt anything that really grabbed you or mad me really excited to see the movie (dramatic emotional scenes, fast action, or funny jokes, all depending on what you are trying to get across) just something to keep in mind for future trailers. I cant wait for the actuall movie!

This was decent. It had some good camera angles, and you did a good job of keeping the "attacker" out of the picture for the shots where the guys got chopped or whatever. But it looked to me as if this movie will have the same slow action that has haunted your other movies. Hopefully I'm wrong!

hahahahaha,
actually showing people getting killed on a trailer, how classy neutral
not really much in the suspense category,
but for a bunch of kids it was quite good

3/5

Yeah one word of advice:

You often use shots in your movies where you see one shot where the guy is coming to stab/jab/hit/etc. the other actor, then one where you see the stick/knife/etc. on the actor's neck/head/arm/etc. for about 2-3 seconds, then keep it there until he has fallen on the ground. Now these slow down the action immensely. What I would do instead of that is somethign like:

1. shot of the killer coming for the camera, for a split second
2. either something like a shadow of them, with the dagger in and stuff for no more than 1 sec or a close shot of the actor's face, seeing his surprise.
3. shot from ground level seeing him fall, his head ends up in the middle. for 1 sec max.
4. killer continues on...

That wouldn't slow it down as much. And try to never have black in between shots, that slows it down too. And never leave it for more than 1 sec of the guy just sitting there acting stabbed, with a knife/ etc. in his throat/etc.

Hope this helps!

advice not on film but trailer
i think the pacing needs some work
often the mini clips dont capture the feeling of suspense
timing is important too
the fading doesnt seem to help the suspense either

but u are kids
so what can i say
