    Hey guys, so I just made a cinematic (movie-styled) Phantom Teaser for my upcoming montage film. I really wanted to push the envelope and create something immersive. If you are into soft and classical music with nice tranquil visuals then this clip is not for you! Its a short 2 min teaser but alot of time was spent on it. Listen on quality speakers (did alot of sound editing) and watch in HD. It's dramatic but Enjoy!!

    Very nice, great footage and slick editing...I like it :)

    I think you might have even gotten more mileage out of the footage if you leaned on that more in place of some of the high-speed effects/cuts, but that's nit-picking. You did a great job of taking simple basic shots and crafting them in to something compelling.

    Like it. Of your "flying backwards" shots, what % were: (1) flown forward and reversed in post; (2) flow backward with a separate FPV cam to avoid hitting something; (3) flown backward "FPV-blind"?

    Very nice mate, loving the semi-seamless transitions and post-production effects. Think this kind of thing will need to be next on my list of 'things to learn'.

    How long did creating that trailer take in post-production (roughly)?

    Even short videos with absolutely no effects like that take (me) many, many hours in editing to get to the point of being ready to upload, so I imagine that has taken a good amount of time to finish.

    DUDE that was awesome. I can tell a lot of these shots were filmed in San Antonio. Do you live down here?

    I wished you would change the setting on your hosting site as it will not let it play on mobile devices and I really want to see it.

    Wow thanks for the feedback everybody. Also really cool that we have some Texas natives on this thread too :D

    To address some questions.....First off, the reverse backward trick is one of my favorite techniques, it looks flawless when done right however the only time I used it in the video was the skatepark scene.

    This project took me around 1.5 weeks to edit, most of the time was wrapped up in rendering times which was a real pain (alot of 3rd party plugins can really eat up my system).

    Many of the shots were done in San Antonio, one in Austin, and a couple in College Station as well as Rockport.

    I used Premiere Pro and After Effects entirely also.

    Glad you guys enjoyed it, really worked hard on it.
