Short Sci-Fi/Fantasy kinda Trailer :)

Hello everyone.
So , little introduction.Im 15 and Im working with after effects and maya for 5 -6 months and I do understand I'm not the best,but this became my life.Im absolutely passionate ( does this word even exist ? ) about making films,watching them ,edit them,everything.Its such a big passion for me and this is my first work.
Unfortunately I lost 80% of my footage ,but I decided to put up a little trailer for my new channel

Can you guys give me some opinion ?Doesn't matter good or not,I wanna know what you do and what you don't like.

P.S - I know cuts are too fast ,but i wanted to recreate a little bit of suspense,since the biggest part of the footage dissapeared .Sometimes my 'actors' laugh and stuff ,so I had to cut pretty fast.

I know Im not the best,but its my first atempt and Im still learning

Thank you guys..

By the way , I don't know how this forum work ,since I just watch what you guys write,but never wrote anything here(except for the intro) .Im using my friend acc , so please,post the comment and not PM if you are going to do it

Nevermind anyway

Thank you a lot of taking the time guys

Is "nazist" a word? The text intro seems contrived and oddly worded to me.

The trailer seems a bit too vague on exactly what the story may be about.

Cuts didn't seem to fast. Matched the music well, at least.

Looks like you've read up on a bunch of sfx & color grading. Those can be useful tools.

However, the trailer still doesn't make much sense. I know you said you lost a lot of footage somehow; you still need to be able to deliver a story, 'cos that's what matters in the end.

You going to reshoot the lost footage and complete your trailer?

Take the 60 seconds to create your own. It will needlessly confuse other people, if multiple people have various conversations under a single name.

ill make a new
its actually my brother acc so its like open on his computer and thats where im writing from .

the point is that I told my friends to come and shoot .I lost the footage,but they were still infront of the camera for like 6 hours and I didn't wanted to dissapoint them since they were pretty excited.So I grab the footage I was left with and come up with this.THey still like it , and I know it's not the best,it's pretty bad in my opinion,since I'm not telling an actual story.

I will not complete the trailer,because I got birthday tomorrow and I'll get the money to finish my action short film which is like the bigger project.

And about the color correction.Nope,I haven't read anything,As I said I starting the whole filmmaking thing about 6 months ago and I just love everything.I was experimentating with the colours and everything and came up with this.
I just love everything about it.Hopefuly the next thing is going to be complete and nice looking project
