Hey this is my first movie posting here on Fxhome. This is a movie that I am making right now with my friends. We created an original version which is completed, but I am going to re write the script and make it better. The clips you see are from the original. When we start shooting the better version of hide and seek I will post an updated version. I can't really give t many details right now about the movie itself because many things will probably change.

Ok I got it to work

WELL DONE!!

The co-olition (spl) between the text and the footage is awesome... the music is a little over done (although I still dont know the name of that peice) and I probably would have cut out the clip with the red eyed guy running through the woods or park or whatever... it just made the trailer look pretty childish and took away from the high quality of the rest of the trailer. The scenes with him flying are the best as far as keeping it hight quality.

Is this a horror...or action or what?

Awesome trailer and I cant wait for the real thing!

okay I'll recompress it using a different type of compression. I will also change that running through the forest part to a better clip because I agree it looks a little childish. Sorry about the music, please bare with it, it was the best music I could find to go with the trailer. Thanks Frozenpede for the compliments

BTW the music is from the movie "Requiem for a Dream" and it was used afterward in "The Two Tower"'s trailer...

I havnt watched it since I commented on it, so if you have already changed it...I dint know. However Im talking about the scene with the guy with the red eyes running through a park or something... and the only fx is the two red globes over his eyes that dont really stay over his eyes...however from your post (above) it sounds like you already did.

I have to know what your intentions were when making this before I rate it.

So far its just to be funny. I'm thinking about writing an actual story for it to make it good because right now the movie is just improve. However, we do have a basic plot line for the improve version of the movie. So, yes, right now its supposed to be corny/funny

I am so tempted to give this a 5, but it goes against my policy. I need to watch it some more, and sleep on it. Some of the humor is so geniously subtle, or subtly genious.....I can't tell

Screw it. Im not too clear on what you meant to be funny and not, but i havent laughed this hard at a movie on FXHOME for a good long time. Possibly the funniest movie that isnt The Gradual Descent. 5 stars

thanks for the 5. I think what is mainly funny in this trailer is the cornyness of it. It makes me laugh too.
