This is a teaser for The Zappers!

Remember, none of these shots are in the movie! This is just something to make you get an idea for the movie! LOL!

Enjoy!

omg This looks hot smile
...tho the noise of the person's hand holding the camera at the beginning almost turned me off. Those were an excellent use of effects (visually)...except the fireball..the fire ball I didn't think look as good as the others but it looks really good.

as a trailer this was alright, but I think you may want to show a little more than someone holding up their hand and zapping something out......unless that is the whole movie

This movie was just for letting you know witch effects that is in the movie, and a small idea of what that is in the battles! The movie is only 4 minutes long at the moment, but ain't finished yet! biggrin

This looks pretty decent although of course you got the comments on the fireball. Also, I noticed that there was a fingerprint or something on the right side of your lense or something.

Man, think of doing something other than a random-clip trailer or a pointless 'doh battlefield' short. If you could even call it that. You seem like if you took your time you could make something worth seeing. Take that into consideration the next time you decide to make a sequel to one of you short films/tests. If you just sit down and think out what you're going to film, and create a well scripted story, maybe you could even make it to the top ten. Until then, I don't think I'll be watching any more of your films. However, I did think that you placed your effects and sound clips in a nice manner.

I pretty much agree with what you're saying, atom. However, tra, if you're having fun with what you're doing now, by all means keep it up. Don't try so hard to please a bunch of people who live hundreds of miles away if you aren't having fun youself. You can't expect praise if all you ever do are short little movies, but if you have fun with them, don't listen to us. smile

music, editing, filming all great! and definatly approving from you old movies! biggrin keep it up.

however, I think you need to sit down and think about each of your actors personality, ability, age and chorisma and then think about each of your characters and tie them together.

Your movies are greatly improving and fast! biggrin again keep it up.

WOW
Big improvement upon your previous work. hmmm I personally wouldn't have put down a trailer if it had nothing to do with the movie other than what effects will be shown in it, but thats just me...
Honestly I thought that trailers and teasers were suppose to show part of what was going to be in the movie to grab peoples attention and make them want to watch it even more when you finish.
Thumbs up none the less!

Well, if the movie's short, why not just post the movie? Instead of spending time on a bunch of trailers, spend time on the actual movie.

Readhawk? It's a Redhawk. And yes I know it's green, would be quite strange if it was named Red Hawk, but since it is not, I can color it anyway I want. Muhaha! POWER! biggrin

And sadly enough, there is no bird called Greenhawk. razz
