Very cool!

My feedback:

1.) There wasn't much of a story at all. It was just a collection of interesting shots that didn't really support each other in any way. If it's actually a trailer for something I don't know what the problem is or even who the main characters are.

2.) The shots didn't fit the music very well in my opinion. Part of the reason trailer tracks are done in the way that they are is to help accentuate certain aspects of the film. This particular trailer style was one that focused on building in intensity through the track. With that as support, the entire direction of your trailer should be focused on slowly building intensity, which in my honest opinion it didn't do as well as it could have.

3.) As someone who writes trailer music, I didn't think the music itself was particularly excellent and I feel that it was a bit too loud/blown out. There are *tons* of free/cheap options out there for excellent quality tracks so make sure to take advantage of them!

Other than these points, I think it was a fantastic trailer. Very cool stuff - keep it up!
