Stretching my trailer making wings, I made this trailer for the movie "Garret". We had to stop filming Garret recently because of reasons we could not control. We hope to finish this movie sometime, but for now, I leave you with a taste of it. Enjoy.

P.S. - This was done BEFORE I recieved my GL2, so thats why the quality isn't that great.

this movie could either be really good, or really bad, but this was actually an excellent trailer. I love the song (Aculag introduced me to the magnetic fields a while back) and my gut tells me that this wouldnt be the homophobic romp one would think, but rather something that is actually just funny and heartfelt. word

This was actually a very good trailer.

Only letdowns for me were the extremely ugly text (NEVER EVER USE COMIC SANS FOR TITLES!!!!) and some weird sound problems.

Overall good though. a 4

thanks for the comments guys, Im planning on putting up a slightly revised version that I think puts somethings in context better, and shows some cooler shots in different places. I also fixed some sound problems, and those titles were changed a bit. (God, I sound like George Lucas.)

Please Note: This is not a homophobic movie or anything. Its about a guy whos life is screwing up, and his accidental date with a cross dresser is just a reason for him to clone himself.

See, I think it is really cool when comedies can take a homosexual idea and make it funny without exploiting gays. Bravo good sir.

Also, my older brother saw this, and he said, I quote, "And why the f*** isnt this being made?" he sounded more exicted than I am surprised

Here's the truth....I didn't realize that it could even be a bit homophobic until after I wrote it. Our main actor was like "Dude, you can't say this," and I went "Yeah, oops. Okay," edit edit edit and it seemed okay.

We're encouraged to go back to it, but it's highly unlikely.

if we finish it, it definately WILL NOT be with ryan (The lead actor). he not only was a bad actor, but was a pain in the ass on set.

Chances: Snowball in hell.

No time for it.

Sorry. But if I could, I'd finish it. I want it as much as you do.

(I don't really mean Snowball in Hell, I'm just listening to that song. But the chances are pretty close to it)

I try... wink

I want to see it done too, but our next movie will knock your socks off. More so than this ever could.

I bumped this cause I am very fond of it, and would like to see more comments on it.
