    Nicely put together and your costumes add some real production value.

    Only thing I'll nitpick is the text in the trailer. Arial is... Well it doesn't evoke a horror mood, OR the 19th century time period. The font in the thumbnail would have been a better choice.

  • Very nice!  I normally don't like horror flicks, but this actually intrigues me.

    Ditto on the ineffectiveness of the Arial font.  It's also a bit small in the frame.  Text needs to be composed just as carefully as footage you're shooting with a camera.

    My only other nitpicks are audio-based.  A couple of the clips have audio sync issues.  I only noticed it with one toward the beginning ("Come girls...") and one toward the end ("Stop that, Captain...").  Also, the music overpowers the dialog in a couple places.  I can still make out the lines, but to make it more clear the soundtrack should be ducked, or the dialog boosted.

  • Nice!

    I liked the trailer but have to agree with @Triem23 about the font. They went nuts with typefaces in the 19th century often using multiple fonts at once. Mixing fonts would be a nice touch I think or go with a Baskerville or Caslon if you wanted an older feel but still keeping things clean. Here's some 19th century examples just for reference.

    HI yes I agree but couldn't find any that were in the public domain

    they all wanted money etc, and my budget was very small , had to avoid copyright as my movie is going to the local cinema , not easy finding fonts

    completely copyright free ?? might be ok on youtube but not in cinema

  • thanks Aladinn4d ,but I will leave it as it is now, its taken me 18 months

    writing it, filming it. editing,and so on,then re,editing in a higher format.

     I have a band im starting.  but thanks for helping ,appreciated

    also I doubt  it will draw that much interest, even though its a fantastic story ,

     but hey ho , that's what you get when you stick your neck out ,and decide to make a movie {:

  • HitFilmer57341 I am not one for horror flicks either but that said the trailer definitely piqued my interest and I would watch the movie.

    Definite thumbs up on the trailer.
