    Hey all, Ops here. Some quick notes of my own:

    1. The voices. I think a lot of folks are going to either REALLY like 'em or REALLY hate 'em. I don't see much of a middle ground here. However, in order to avoid having the Vince DiCola music echoing in the background, I opted to re-record a lot of lines myself. In my own humble opinion, I think that it helps with the finished effect.

    2. Turn your speakers UP. It's much better when it's loud and full of volume. :) 

    3. This is my first time. Pop my music video cherry, would you? Leave me some good, hearty feedback - what's good? What's bad? What did you really enjoy?

    Awesome video editting, if the original voices were there they wouldn't have been as distracting.

    Good work. I liked it.

    Now for the criticism. For a movie trailer, it gives away too much stuff. Unicron transforming, and Prime's death should not have been shown. Spoils the suprise. Also, too much attention given to characters noone ever heard of before. Remember, the season 3 guys would not have been known about yet. Keep in mind, when this movie was coming out, we only had through season 2. Gotta keep that mindset for the trailer.

    I liked hearing the orthanc music from LOTR :lol 

    Biggest criticism I have, would be to cut it a little cleaner. a couple of shots the tail end ran into the next scene for a frame or two.
    Best example would be right after Devstator transforms, it flashes the scene after of the shot behind the cons.

    My usual reminder - if you download it, PLEASE comment on it. Ops put a lot of work into this, even if you weren't a fan, help him out and give him some feedback.

    very creative! don't know about the music choices, but the the pace and set up of the footage is done well.

    and it follows the old rule of movie trailers: makes the movie look bigger and better than it actually is. I mean, I love TFTM like most of you but this trailer implies a much longer and more brutal movie!

    Well to be honest, When going into it, I had my reservations..

    You blew those away.

    For a first time video, it definately is a great piece of work. the only problem I had with it was the voice of Daniel.. seemed a little off. Other then that, pretty decent work man. I'd give it a 3.9/4.2 out of 5.

    I like it. I was wondering why the voices were different but you explained it. I also recall the original TV spot saying "does Prime die?" Also saying Prime dies in the trailer puts buts in the seats. That'll have people saying "you're bull s***tin!"

    That trailer was awesome; I have to go watch the movie now. The scene selection was good and the music was incredible, as well as the pace. The only thing I didn't like was the voices, they were distracting, but the voice acting wasn’t bad. Great job overall.

    I liked it, it's a piece of art in it's own right. Ops, I just wonder what motivated you? I saved a copy, and yes it's better with the volume turned up. :D

    excuse my ignorance, but where do I DL the video from. There used to be links on the thread. Now I just go to a page with a link to a text file. I looked for instructions, in the event that the format was changed, but I couldn't find any.

    nevermind, I got it

    Just watched the movie before stumbling on this trailer. Made it a bit jarring as the actual music and voices totally filled my head. I like most of the setup, but the whole spoiler thing always irritates me in trailers.

    At first I was like WTF is up with these voices? But after reading the post I understand now. Good work,especially for a first video. Better then anything I could do (although that could be taken as good or bad).

    The video - Awesome
    The music - Awesome
    The Voices - not bad. It is possible to remove the music... but I haven't tried the method I found, so Im not sure how easy it is or how well it works (like everything else it looks good on paper).

    What program did you use to put it together?

    Your Prime sounds a bit like Darth Vader, but I like it better than Chalke's. :thumb
