Motion graphic design by http://www.mikeafford.com - fan-made Green Lantern trailer -
3D modelling in Cinema 4D, some artworking in Photoshop, post production in After Effects CS3, grading with Magic Bullet 'Looks' which I do rate very highly.
Movie uploaded as 320x240 FLV (25fps, 350kbps, audio 192kbps stereo - but it still gets re-compressed right - is there any way of avoiding this I wonder??)
By the way - yes, John is black, Hal is white, Kyle is a bit Mexican apparently, and Guy Gardner is kind of ginger looking. I don't know which might appear in a real movie if it ever happens (**update Aug 09 - it's Hal Jordan, being played by Ryan Reynolds**). Hopefully all of them, and also Sinestro (magenta) and the Guardians (pale blue).
Anyway i do hope everyone likes my trailer.
Comments welcome. Although don't expect a prize for just saying 'Fake'. Of course it's a fake. Anyone who's seen Transformers, Daredevil or Smallville should be able to spot that without too much trouble.
And also, the music is Lux Aeterna / Requiem for a Dream, and yes it IS used a lot. Or so I've been told. Over and over again. I haven't seen another one using the same track personally, but then I don't tend to go to YouTube for trailers as they're mostly rubbish :) So anyway, if you leave a comment like "why does everyone use this f**king music you dumbass" there's a very good chance I'll delete it.
Well done to those who noticed that 'this summer' doesn't quite tally with 'coming soon' - especially at Christmas! It sort of made sense when I made it :)
