Teaser for fantasy 90s short (initial ideas!)


#1

Hey guys! Let me know what you guys think from this teaser. I’m really looking forward to getting just the first emotional bytes you get. Nostalgic, confused, happy, sad? Thanks!


#2

No emotion from me, sorry.

What’s your goal?


#3

What vibes were you getting? The teaser is supposed just give a taste of vague ideas. Nothing too concrete; an atmosphere of sorts.

Well the filter feels old, though not necessarily nostalgic, especially with some of the lighting. The people range from random shots that feel a little like corporate stock footage to a druggie vibe. It doesn’t tease much and mainly seems to coast on a sense of nostalgia that I think it misses completely.

What’s the use of a teaser for an unknown IP? How will you tease people who have no clue what you’re showing them and thus no interest. A trailer might work better for you, give your desired audience an idea of what this is and why they’d want to watch it. But that’s how I think about it.
If you do want to tease and there’s people speaking on screen, let them be heard. We bind to people emotionally and it’s a waste not to use that power to involve people with what they’re watching. Sound is your strongest tool.

Sorry if this seems a bit harsh, I mean it all in a helpful way. So I hope any of this is of use to you and wish you good luck with your project.
