Also to try to implement the videos "theme" into the teaser, even though most of action sport films are montages, themes still play a crucial role in making a video more effective.

For your teaser (note: these are my opinions) I would get rid of the second title and make a better titles for the "street meats" (create an actual logo) and the last title "finally". The second shot of the video, the back flip, I would take that out and cut in shots of bike tires riding by or something that is a little less revealing right off the bat; because the back flip shot is a nice shot, it would be more effect near the end of the teaser. Also cut out all of the crashes, maybe leave one or two, but all of them do not make for a good teaser. Then just cut it down to like a minute or so. Music was good and the riding after the crashes.

Thanks for the input. They are good pointers but the thing is, it's hard to sell independent BMX videos these days. You MUST have a promo that has some major impact. Not that we're trying to sell a million copies or anything, but it would be nice to get our names out there in the BMX scene. The tricks used in the trailer were some of the better ones, but not the best, so there is still much more to be revealed in the final DVD. The "feel" in the trailer is on que to what the final movie will be like.

My dad was in France when I made this and he watched it on Google. Sometimes we forget to remember how far technology has come in the last decade.

XL2 / SGPro r2 Short Film Trailer

Hey guys,

I thought I would post this trailer for a short film I wrote and directed using the XL2 / SGPro r2 combo. It is a student film, so please keep that in mind ;)

It's a dark comedy about a motley group of part-time professional funeral mourners who are paid to attend funerals and cry for complete strangers. However, when a familiar face is suffering, they fail miserably at what they should do best.

Please let me know what you think!

http://stage6.divx.com/user/negative...ficial-Trailer

We used three lenses :

Pentax SMC 85mm f/1.8 M
Pentax SMC 50mm f/1.4 AF
Sigma 28mm f/1.8 AF

I think we'll have the full version of the film up later if anyone is interested. We're currently having it scored and color corrected.

- Zack

mini doc/fundraiser

Hi all,

This is a kind of mini documentary I put together for a family that is trying to raise funds so they can take their autistic son to a cutting-edge center to get him help overcoming his disabilities.

I showed it over the weekend at a small town fundraiser -- in a town with population of 840 -- and we raised $14,000 in a day.

This is my first time with this kind of project, so I'm eager for constructive criticism. Fair warning: It's 23 minutes-long and I'm hosting on Google Video, which is not bad considering it's free, but the resolution is obviously much better in the original.

Help-Levi-Learn.org

Click on "Levi's Story."

Of course, if anyone feels inspired to help this family out, that would be cool, too.

God bless,

Jon

Nice one! :-D

In which way did you modify the colors and the contrast to get this look?

Regards,
