Clean footage but boring trailer.

Agreed. NICE look, but do I care where Sonny went? It was a short trailer. Give us another 20 seconds of why we want to know about Sonny. Invest us somehow.

Still, great job in getting a full feature shot with the 5D2! Any stories to tell?

Obviously from the Trailer, you can't tell too much about the movie, but really cool that they are using the 5D Mark II for a feature film.

The trailer may not have any kind of act structure, but the composition of the shots is very very nice. Really impressed.

I actually prefer short trailers rather than those revealing too much of the plot, and I agree it looks very nice. I wonder what aspect ratio that is, 2.39:1 or something..?

I read a synopsis somewhere and it made me much more interested then the trailer did, that being said the trailer at least looked like a movie...

A trailer's job isn't to reveal the plot of the movie though... it's to make you want to pay $10 to go see it. In this case, the trailer makes me want to pay $10 NOT to see it.

Good directing, camera moves, shots selection...seem to be cutting wrong...mid to mid, not too much variety that would have more characterizations... shots reflecting actual dynamics of the story.. Agree trailer could've done better, kind of bores me too.

Trailer was shot recently

Sorry I don't have the link, but I just saw this website about this project. This trailer was the only thing shot recently. No feature film has been shot with the camera yet, but that is the long term goal. They are using this trailer/website as a marketing tool to raise money to shoot the film I believe.

The most impressive thing about the trailer has nothing to do with the video. It's that they got the funds and approval to license the song "Sonny".

Get some Attention

Haha ... good one Jon. Sonny is just trying to get attention. If Canon paid us a little attention, we'd all be making our first feature with the 5d (nice Nikon lenses)!

Seems to be true. I don't want to bash on this too much, but if you advertise that it's the first feature film shot on DSLR, and you haven't actually shot, wrapped, edited, and now ready to distribute, how on earth do you feel that claim is worth spreading out to the world, and especially with the highly critical forum communities?

I like the look of the material - it's gorgeous like most other 5DMkII examples. But the marketing bugs the hell out of me. But I give you credit - people are talking about it! Then finding out it's not true. :P
