3 Stars. C - Average, not great. Could do better, etc.

Some good ideas were evident, but simply not pulled off very well. Like the dirt from an explosion raining down on the characters: Nice idea, but wasn't linked with an explosion sound effect - so seemed utterly pointless and random.

You also need to watch a few more movies frame by frame, and see what shape muzzle flashes are. (hint: they aren't like a rather pathetic squitty fart!).

Regarding the authenticity...your props could do with a makeover, especially since the m4A1 didn't exist in 1942 (esp with a sawn-off stock ?!). The m1 Garand-equivalent that the character at the top of screen was using, is single-action, not automatic. Find some better sound effects. Given that you cribbed the music from the game, it would also have made sense if you cribbed the sound effects too.

Finally, you can't simulate recoil by wiggling a gun up and down or side to side - thats simply breaking the laws of physics and recoil, and looks ridiculous. Next time, simulate it by gripping the trigger handle harder, and pulling the gun into your shoulder.

I didnt think that this was too good. The trailer was a little slow for me. I wanted more angles, quicker cuts. The muzzle flashes were a big disappointment. Why didnt you place them on the front of the gun? They jumped around, which shows lack of effort. Especially with the easiness of AlamDV.

pros
good music
good setting
costumes biggrin

cons
WAY too small, even for a teaser trailer
not clear enough what it is, you need to capture that in trailers
muzzle flashes (don't worry, everyone improves)

well it seems like you made up oggy the boogie, jack o, Dado, TAP 2, shnitzil, and foxicuz. They all gave you fives and they all are not gold members. Hmmmmmmm, seems a little supisous, but just to let you know you have to be a gold member to count wink Anyways, this movie bored me stiff, it hade to action, seemed like a home video. Three kids ran out with a camera with wooden guns and ran around. Then added soundeffects. Sorry, but i would have to give you a 2.

Well, I think that movie wasn't that bad. But the muzzle flash effects were horrable !

Please, use the normal 'cinematic muzzle flashes'. And when I watched the movie I realized me that you probably don't know how a muzzle flash look confused . They aren't that thin, it's more like a short explosion out of a gun.

Well, that's the only negative point.

The music was reasonable good.

A 2/5 for me

couple of things took away from this teaser..

xcession mentioned the weapons, so i would suggest fixin that asap.

The heartbeat didnt match the editing.

The tiny battle sequence was hindered by only showing one side.

To be more accurate, lining up lying on the ground is a terrible battle tactic, as is having three dudes in a squad or whatever that was supposed to be. The trailer also didnt lend itself to suspense with those somewhat boring angles.

The black and white filter didnt seem to have very much contrast, so you might fix that, and maybe turn down the brightness on it abit.
