this is about a man who has lost everything(his family) and has pent up so much rage and he has turned that rage into power and from that power becomes his darkside..he must kill his darkside or his darkside will get the better of him...this is just a trailer but you should get the point..lol
tell me what u think ..oh thanks to cypher for hosting this for me..smile

There are some very nice shots and effects in that clip and some nice fighting-choreography. But there were also some angles witch looked a little rushed and far away.
Will you put the whole movie online as well?

Your use of effects is pretty fresh...you've done several effects I haven't seen yet, and some others which I have seen, but you've done them well.

You might need to work on lighting a bit, but it was a nice trailer.

Oh badddddd. That looks pretty good. How much of that fighting was real and how much was computers? It looks pretty good either way. Good use of music, I use that in the final scene to my film. It's refreshing to not hear only overly loud Mosher type stuff. (I hate it when people use music like that in films, with the possible exception of "the one") The lighting wasn't great, it was too grainy and some of the angles weren't that great either. However it does look baddddddd!!!!!!! biggrin

I always film at night. You set off, thinking how good it'll look, you watch it back and it looks all grainy. I fiddle with the camera a bit, as long as there's a strong source of light. (Street lamps are the best) your newly fiddled with cam work should look better. If you don't it commonly looks real crappy.
