I'm trying to figure out a way of being constructive and polite but I am having a difficult time putting my finger on it.

The beginning started out looking like it could have potential but then it slowed WAAAAAY down. Over all it felt too long. I watched it for almost 10 minutes and then HAD to fast forward it to about 15 minutes when I just gave up and quit watching.
The exposure was off (sometimes the background wall would be correctly exposed and "Santa" was underexposed, the dialog was crude, cursing for no apparent reason (no matter what, the suspension of disbelief that Santa would have EVER used that much foul language is highly unlikely). I understand there were budgetary concerns but the interior shots could have been made more interesting.

It could have potential, and I like the concept, but it was executed all wrong. Make it much shorter or more interesting. Santa as a young punk eating at "Mc D's" is a cool idea but this character had less in common with Santa than Sadam Hussain (sorry don't know how to spell it).

I don't want to discourage your efforts by any means. In fact, it's good practice and I imagine it took you a lot of time and energy. Marks for that! It just needs a better story. Edit the script some more and make some story boards and follow the flow. It took too long to say anything.

Maybe more people will chime in but be prepared for some critics. Thanks for posting.

Awesome trailer in my opinion. I also use a GL2, but I find Vegas really hard to use, so I'm with Preimere Pro. I was wondering what settings your GL2 was on when you guys shot that...

So you just shot the trailer? Or is there an actual project behind?
Sorry if it is a dumb question, but as practice, just making a trailer is great!
I liked the look of it. A little too long in my oppinion.
Good job!

The shooting is nice, the images are nice, but really this isn't a trailer.

Trailers are suppose to tease, reveal a plot line, make you curious to see what the movie is about. You reveal tension, interplay between characters, and often push the most commercial aspects of a movie.

This struck me more as a music video faking being a trailer for style, rather than a true trailer. I saw no story, no plot, no character interaction, no real tension... just some guy walking to a sort of strange death being hit by the only car in a huge parking lot. It also went WAY too long (trailer times are usually in increments of 30 seconds, maxing about 2 minutes)

As I said: the images are nice, the techniques used in editing very smooth, the camera work nice, the colors are nice and deep.

Parental Advisory: Explicit lyrics. :)

Nice clean shots, nice color... I am not a huge fan of the "guy singing to the camera" routine, but you managed to keep it visually interesting. Not sure if it compliments his message or obscures it, but that is a whole other discussion.
