    Here is a link to a small teaser for a film that we shot this weekend. (Just for kicks of course...)[​IMG]

    I edited this clip together in about 20 minutes late last night so be gentle...

    BTW, I threw in Carpenter's Halloween score since we don't have ours ready yet.

    I'm a first timer so be nice...

    It's pretty dark... maybe it's my monitor, but the last few seconds I couldn't see anything.

    Sorry, the last bit is just music...

    It is a little dark though, but I can see everything fine on my laptop.

    I tried it in WMP and VLC but couldn't get it to play.

    It's an AVI file. WMP plays it fine for me?

    So.. what did you think Dave?:b

    It seems intriguing, but not quite sure what's going on. I guess this is an 80's type slasher flick? I agree with the above about it being way too dark. When the killer was walking down the stairs, it took me a few seconds to figure out what was going on. But the look and atmosphere appear to be present which is always a plus in any horror movie.

    And you gotta find a way to compress the file. A 20 sec clip should not be 120 meg file.

    I'm working on a new trailer. I have a ton of shots to choose from and many of them look much better. Just don't have the time to edit at the moment.

    Any tips on how to compress the file?

    Get Windows Media Encoder 9 which is free and you can easily convert and compress the file to wmv while keeping the quality.
