Hello!

 

I'm wondering what you folks think about this. My goal is to use it sort of as a teaser on my website, in order to get producers to click through to my portfolio where I have projects in their entirety. I'm wondering if this is effective? Or maybe it looks amateurish? Or maybe the older producers out there who aren't used to ingesting media in bite size bits might have a seizure watching this? What are your thoughts??

 

Thanks :)

I think this is great as a teaser trailer for your work. I'm planning on doing the same but to serve as full screen background video on my website. I think that you can now afford to make a bit longer and genre specific reels now that you've hooked the viewers with the teaser. Great work!

I think it's in with the times. Shows you have good range and establishes a pace that's difficult to get bored with. Will at least get your foot in the door for a deeper viewing of a specific reel.

yea it had a commercial feel to it, like some of those live life commercials where they flash random artistic images of things…what stood out was the white room and the 2 black dudes fighting while two people sit in chairs…kinda reminded me of Django Unchained…anyways it seemed appropriate
