This is the trailer to a 15 minute movie I did as a class project in school. Because it was a school project, I was very much limited in what I had to work with, but I'm still happy with the result.

Hope you all enjoy!

Thanks! Glad you liked it. smile

To prevent the lines from showing, I turned the steadyshot off. All of it was filmed on a Digital8 camera, but I color corrected everything in Premiere Pro.

looks good. Had a really good feel to it, the only thing that I didn't like was the camera on the tripod and the actor in the middle of the shot, other than that pretty well done.

Thanks everyone for the replies. smile

The first song was taken from the Die Entsorger soundtrack. I used the song "Wieder zuhause" composed by Thomas Oberegger. You can get it here.

I'm not sure exactly what sounds you're referring to, bmx-men_, but for the flashback part, I used the sounds ripped from Prince of Persia: Sands of Time during a flashback sequence. The gunblast at the end is from Max Payne.

How about those sounds, the ones that sound like the T-Rex walking from Jurrassic Park. Like, boom.....boom.....booom, where'd you get those?

Actually, I got that one from Findsounds.com. Just search for T-rex, and you should be able to find it.

Oh, and while I'm at it, during the story-ish sequence, the flashing sounds came from different sources, including door closes (the sound bunker), Enter the Matrix (the sound bunker too, but pooky fixed them smile ), and from Sharp's pack of bullet time sounds. Oh, and one was from Prince of Persia also.

Where is the sound bunker, you mean jushhome.com or whatever, correct me if I spelled it wrong btw, or do you mean Sharp's sounds?

Yeah, that's what I'm talking about.

And the flash when the guy walks really fast down the hallway (the third one) is number 24 of the bullet time sound effects from Sharp.

Really, Really nice.

I love the pacing of the trailer - its very cinematic. Especially the way the studio name cuts in at the begining. The particle effects on the fireballs look great as well.

Hope the trailer for my Catwoman film is as good smile

I was wondering when we'd see a film from you, Lloyd biggrin

Very nice editing. As said before, it did have a very cinematic feel, especially with the multiple songs in the background. Most people just put one through the whole thing, which is fine for some things, but I think the music was perfect for this.

The effects weren't the best I've seen, but I have seen worse as well. The trailer makes me want to see the full film, which is more than most trailers on this site can do smile

Superb!

There were some things in that that I really liked; the shot where it zooms into the gun that the guy is holding, before cutting to the titles - that was really cool, and reminded me of a shot in one of the Nightcast teasers (and that can only be a good thing!).

I did feel that some of the editing could have been a *little* tighter or faster in the 'action' section of the clip - perhaps starting at a steady speed and building up. My attention flagged toward the end of the action segment - perhaps you could break it up somehow? That's just personal preference though.

All in all, a great trailer, so four stars from me smile

Cheers,
Arktic.

Ggbros, that missle effect was actually stock footage from detonation films. Missle Away 01 is the clip.

it was looking pretty good until you started throwing in the effects. the explosion on the door was very cheesy looking, and the rest was sub-mediocre. use chromanator to enhance your effects next time.

That was pretty awesome bro. I liked the editing. I was wondering what you used to make your "GYM Studios" intro, and whatever software you used to edit your movie as well as make that really clean effect where that guy moves very quickly out of the shot, and when that other person jumped onto some sort of outdoor stage. Thanks man i would really appreciate the info.

Jay: You're right, some of the effects aren't as good, especially the explosions. But I don't have Chromanator, and I don't really understand how that would help. But thanks for the input anyway.

D Unit: Glad you liked it. smile The titles I did in Blender, and I edited it in Vegas 5. The running really fast shots I did in Commotion; it is kind of a long process, although eventually Tarn was planning on making a tut for it in Chromanator.

The jumping onto the stage was simple. All I did was film him jumping, then make a mask around him, and move that layer around independently of the background plate.

I just love the line "tresure, this is gettin sweet, I guess you at school..."
A very nice mix of footage and sound which made this very intresting. I have an clue what this movie is about but you've not telled the whole plot, which make me wanna see it.

Some effects dosen't looks perfect, but you have some really nice details, like the first gunshot in the middle something in the movie, when you actully see the reflection of it in the car. awsome detail.
Good use of a "poor" camera, actors. nice color correction, nice music, sound efffects.

I'm sure take a look at this when it hits the cinema. nice work Lloyd

Hey everyone. smile

I just submitted the full movie to the cinema, so it should be up in a few days. I'm going to be on vacation for a week, though, so I won't be able to answer any posts until I get back. I hope you all check it out, though, and let me know what you think.

Hey, just saw the trailer, (a bit late), but I liked it! It was great! When he sees the note on the floor, and the blinking, it's just well done.

And I was wondering; how did you do the superfast running? Because I want to be able to do it, because it looked great. I have got a lot of Adobe programs so... if you used some of those let me know!

Thanks in advance!
