AVP [CMA] Teaser Trailer.

******A LITTLE HEADS UP: This video, along with a few others on my account, don't really reflect my current abilities to animate and create movies now. The movies with this note in the description are all pieces of a larger puzzle that helped me grow my knowledge and skills when I was younger. I aspired to be a great animator, storyteller and moviemaker. I'm still on that journey today and I always will be on that journey until the day I die. I'm forever learning new things to improve myself. I could delete these pieces and forget about them, to make my channel look a little nicer and I guess make it "better quality" overall, but I think it's important to remember where you started, where you came from, and how far you've come.

QUALITY: I recommend that you watch this animation in at least medium quality as it tends to lag a bit. Thanks. Tested and made to sound/sounds best with stereo headphones.

This is the Aliens vs. Predator [CMA] PC Online Multiplayer Clan Montage Teaser Trailer animation made by yours truly. If you can spare the time, please tell me what you think about the animation; the quality, scene composition, its effectiveness as a teaser trailer and/or anything else you can think of. Thanks for watching, I appreciate your time.

Looking back on your other submissions this isn't much of an improvement. As far as quality is concerned it is lacking in effort. You may find it much easier to work with a wacom pad or tablet. Scene composition is likewise. And in terms of effectiveness as a teaser trailer, it really doesn't do it for me, though that is just a matter of preference. It's straightforward and uninteresting. I really enjoyed the teaser trailer for Cloverfield as it avoided shots of the monster and Star Trek as it featured a simple starfleet logo accompanied by classic "trek" audio. Perhaps you need to take some time researching relevant material before tackling a new submission.

I think I see what you mean. I wouldn't say it's MUCH of an improvement either, but It's a slight one. I'm getting there, bit by bit and learning new things along the way. It's all self taught but I won't use that as an excuse. I did actually try an approach not to reveal much of the fighters such with the marine only visible with the pulse rifle, the alien and its tail but the predator I couldn't find a way to finish it. To me, I thought a teaser was SUPPOSED to be straightforward and simple, simply revealing what is to eventually come in the future. But I will take what you have said into account and will try improving in future flash and do some research on the relevant material before the animation process itself. I highly appreciate your time, your thoughts on my work and suggestions on improvement.

All the best.



You're gonna make a game out of this? Interesting challenge. I look forward to some gaming footage. That is, your comment isn't another "Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters" title so long that could almost make sense.
