from a purely aesthetic review, I think you went a little to strong with the flares. The animated white text looks two-dimensional while the flare and the background appears separated especially due to the texture that's present. The flare is overpowering the text which I don't think you want. Add some depth to the text either with layer styles, Element or a 3D program or even consider adding a faux shadow against the background. I would also verify the flare is set to render on black and use Add as the transfer mode.

The additional portion that was a bit too distracting from the action was the blood on the camera. Nothing else seems to hit it but the blood does and it seems a bit too in focus if you're going to keep it, add some blur (fake DOF) to make it look a bit better.

Wish you success in your project

Hello ccfilms.

It seems that you have made your trailer "private" on YouTube.

Would love to see it though.

I have to agree about the blood splatter on the camera. It really jumps out as being fake and so takes the viewer completely out of the moment. It seems gimmicky. Do you need it to advance or enhance the story?

I'd consider getting your actors in for some ADR. Especially the woman when she first starts fighting and has those "Ha!" fighting noises, also the man walking in the hallway talking on his cell phone.

Thanks for your feedback. The "ha" was added in, I like it. May have to reshoot the man walking, but probably do touch ups on that shot instead. The lighting isn't there.
