View Full Version : Trailer for first movie (action/drama)

04-15-2006, 03:00 PM
Hey everyone, I'm making my first movie this summer and made a trailer based on an early concept of the script (actually, so early, we didn't have a definitive plot idea, which is why there's nothing about the plot in the trailer). We just finished up the script and are scheduled to shoot at the end of May/June, pending a microphone, a bit more crew, some finances, etc.

Shot on a Canon XL-2. Any feedback at this early stage?

Yeah, that was cool! I thought I was going to see nothing special but instead it seems like you have some good shooting skills as well as have the potential for a good story.

Good luck with this and hope to see the full version (trailer) with plot in place.

I liked what I saw, and like Eddie, I was expecting to see nothing special. Well I was wrong. It was well done.

I know that trailer has nothing to do with what may come of the "real" footage, bit it was good. Some things I saw were the same Karate moves by the same two people too often. I mean I was able to tell that the same move was done over and over. Good moves, and it might be their style, but in such a short trailer there should be no repition.

Good Job!

I'd see the film!

You should take a look at the kerning (space between letters) on the "i" in serial on the end title card too.

The fight scenes were good, although one cannot tell much from the trailer what the films about.
I would suggest maybe a voiceover introducing the viewer to the film.
