View Full Version : My First Feature

This small teaser is nothing like what the official trailer will be, this is just a few tidbits of what to expect.

Let me know what you think.

Enjoy. :)

Looks good! The text isn't on for long enough every time though, just a note for the actual trailer.

Thanks for the kind words so far. Yeah, the text isn't quite perfect, nor is the teaser itself, that was just a small teaser the director/editor put together basically just to introduce the film's antagonist. We should have an official trailer soon, but first, we're focusing on completing the post-production sound.

I cannot wait for everyone to see the film in its entirety. It's really amazing what such a small crew did, especially with such limited resources.

Despite the fact that the sound is incomplete, we submitted the film to Screamfest and are looking at other festivals to submit the film to at the moment. Luckily, Screamfest accepts films that aren't fully complete as far as audio/sound design/music score go, as long as the film will be finalized by, I think, October 3rd, though I may be mistaken. We will definitely have our film ready in the next two weeks, so for now, we're just putting the finishing touches on this thing and waiting to find out if we got accepted or not. Wish us luck! :)

^ Will do!

We're still working on the sound design. There are going to be some BRUTAL sound effects during the kill scenes.

The opening credits sequence is finished as well, and looks pretty great.

This is coming along nicely.

HA!!! I friggin' love the title "Loon". That's really great. Plus, I'm giving you extra credit for now having your production logo run for 30 seconds at the beginning. Man, that irritates the living shit out of me when people do that.

Thanks for sharing

What the hell?

08-07-2013, 07:52 PM
Hey Director, I'd like to hear your reasoning behind the anger you expressed when responding.

Rather than being professional, and offering constructive criticism, you responded in a very smartass-y manner.

From your other posts, I see you just recently completed a feature. Perhaps you're just upset that it didn't turn out so well.

Or maybe you're just scared of clowns. ;)

Either way, I'd love to get a better understanding as to why you responded in such a harsh manner. Are you drunk by any chance?

08-07-2013, 08:45 PM
Good Luck!

08-07-2013, 10:08 PM
^ Thanks!

You were uhh, clearly being sarcastic, and the statement that followed was just plain rude in a non-sarcastic manner.

But it's all good, no hard feelings. I'll just keep on trying to make solid films, whether you or anyone else appreciates it or not.

HA!!! I friggin' love the title "Loon". That's really great. Plus, I'm giving you extra credit for now (not) having your production logo run for 30 seconds at the beginning. Man, that irritates the living shit out of me when people do that.

Thanks for sharing

I believe he was complementing you. Just a misunderstanding.

08-08-2013, 06:59 AM
Damn, that one word changed the hell out of that entire statement.

All is well. :)

^ Did you not read the post right above yours?

It was made clear that you weren't insulting the company credits, but one letter made the word NOT look like NOW, so therefore I thought you were.

It was just a misunderstanding.

I thought you were just mad at the world and decided to just post a rude comment just to try to be a troll, or you were just mad at the world period.

It's all understood now, like I said before, no hard feelings.

Thanks a ton for the kind response - even if a small typo made it seem like a rude response.

I hope you'll dig the official trailer just as much or more.

Ok, let me spell it out for you, since, somehow, the finer nuances of the English language seem to go over your head.

I said I loved the title. I was being serious. I believe titles are an important part of making a movie. I hope this is clear?

I said I dislike when people, who are so proud of their production logo, let it run for an inappropriate amount of time. You didn't do that and it was much appreciated. I hope this part is very clear to you.

Having said all that, it seems that you are way too overly sensitive, and now you can't admit when you've made a mistake. To add to all that, you've made yourself look like a pouting 14 year old girl, and very foolishly too, I might add.

Hey Director, if you're still upset by the way I handled the criticism I THOUGHT you were giving me, I'd like to personally invite you to the world premiere of the film, once post-production wraps up and we get the festival plans worked out.

Or if you can't make it, I'll fly you down to Merritt Island for the sequel we're planning to shoot next summer. You can help out in some way, perhaps be a PA or something.

PM me your contact details, and we'll work something out.

Can I just put in my two cents on this Director/JHar888 thing.

Last night when I saw this thread, I went down the list and saw what Director wrote. I then went back to see the 30 seconds of production logo in the 1:14 second teaser. It was only 7 seconds showing 3 different logos, so I was kind of stunned at that statement myself.

Today I see I was mistaken by what I read. But, Director's post was edited at 7:10am, did you originally forget the NOT? If you did that's pretty funny. Especially since now you're both really arguing.

That make me a bad person? ;)

I'm sorry, now I don't get it. Was it a typo (a missing period or something like that) or a missing word (not)? Because if it's the missing word the entire meaning of the statement changes. You must understand that. It certainly did seem strange that you were making fun of a trailer that didn't have a 30 second promo title, by saying that it did.

08-08-2013, 08:50 AM
See, UniqueAmI made the same mistake as I. Yes, that one word ("not") changed the entire post.

That is why I took offense.

I'm doing my best to get along, but Director won't let it go, even after I invited him to the set of the next film.

And I'm the 14-year-old girl? Lol.

Scholars believe this is exactly how WWII was started. Hitler said, "...I think we should ASK the Jews." and it was misheard as "...GAS the Jews."

I'm joking of course...

It started to feel like a 'daddy hit mommy at the dinner table' kind of situation so someone has to crack a joke

My dad, a retired judge and lawyer, sometimes describes no-win situations as a "when did you stop beating your wife?" question...where no matter what you say, it's a bad answer.

08-08-2013, 10:19 AM
Sorry for the typo.

08-08-2013, 10:55 AM
Sorry for the typo.

Now that's the perfect response.

I seemed to have missed this. Director and Jhar888 have both be valuable members here, I hope you guys are good now.

Looking forward to seeing this Jhar888

08-08-2013, 06:49 PM
^ Thanks for checking in Nick, I can't wait till you see the completed feature.

08-13-2013, 09:57 AM
I'm chiming in late on a number of threads today---clearly I need to sign on more often.

I thought the rhyming titles was very effective. And the title graphics are very nice.

Would like to see the feature when complete.

Update: the official poster art was revealed tonight on Facebook. This was designed by Austin Hinderliter, who did the poster art for the 2012 nationwide theatrical re-release of John Carpenter's Halloween. Let me know what you guys think.

The video piqued my interest in the film and the poster looks great. Good luck!

Here's the full-length trailer! Enjoy. :)
