my first feature "Lisl and the Lorlok, a dark fairy tale"

Anyway, to get something out there for the cast and crew, I pushed out some footage in the form of this hasty teaser and I'm interested in opinions on the raw footage. We shot on an HPX500, had two Arri kits, and a PVC skateboard dolly. No mattebox, follow focus, filters, flags or c-stands ... but we had awesome craft services and great wine. 75% amateur crew, SAG Ultra Low Budget Agreement.
Here is a link to the movie website, on which you can find a 480p teaser or smaller versions. Any and all comments are welcome!

I guess the c stands and follow focus, etc. weren't needed because the pictures looked great on my little computer screen. The whole thing has a very nice polish and consistent mood, the compositions were very pleasing and the camera movement well done and not too distracting. I'd like to know more of the story!
Thank you very much, Bruce, hopefully the whole movie will hold up okay. I started a BTS thread over at DVXUser (I didn't want to tie BTS pics to the movie website), you can check that out at http://dvxuser.com/V...ad.php?t=145705. The story is really created in the vein of Brothers Grimm style fairy tales (Grimm's Grimmest was a sort of inspiration for the style of the story). It's an allegory for drug addiction as seen from the eyes of a child, so the protagonist, Lisl, kind of loses her parents to obsessive behaviors brought on by this magical monster roaming the estate. My writing partner and I wrote for the location itself and I just really wanted to create something small I could do from start to finish on a very limited budget.
