    ^ Didn't really work for me. The piece as a whole is the wrong tone for the film. The big swelling strings you have during the first explosion doesn't work with the chaos on the screen. A few times you managed to pump the excitement level up with the music but overall it didn't work for me. I'm surprised you didn't use any of the iTunes exclusive music that's not heard in the end credits. 5:26 - 7:26. Even then Giacchino's piece is just far too cheesy for the images and editing style of the trailer.

    the strings indeed are not exactly what they should do, but I needed the crashing of the orchestra when the fireballs went down

    I think it works fine, but I can't seem to convince everyone wink

    Ah well, there goes my dream of becoming an editor biggrin

    Hardly! You're trying to fit an end credits cue to not only a scene it wasn't meant for, but a movie with no music anyway! No wonder it's hard! wink

    Try some Lost music with it? Would that work?

    perhaps, but my point was to add music of the film to the trailer

    if I start to toy with music that will fit the trailer the most, I would have gone with something more menacing smile

    I did add the music of Chicken Run to the trailer of Ice Age 2, and it is my best work so far, I'll upload it after Christmas if you guys would like that smile

    I tried my own version but it just too hard to use only Giacchino's Cloverfiend music. I added in a bit of Horner's Brainstorm to mine but it still don't work. The original trailer is actually really good.

    I saw different trailers but I think they all did the same thing. No music, sound effects, lots of fast cuts. For a movie without music adding music to the trailer would have been a bit misleading.

    Both Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield were an absolute delight to me. Blair Witch was one of the scriest things I've seen in decades, and I absolutely loved the "Godzilla from the ground up" idea of Cloverfield.

    However, I *did* see both flms on TV, as I too become physically nauseous by having to endure shaky-cam on the big screen.
    On TV it's no problem at all though.

    I saw CLOVERFIELD in a theatre the day after heavy drinking, and was seated near the front row. At least three times during the film, did I get out of the room to throw up, but fortunately managed to pull myself together each time. Lots of people left the theatre throughout the film, though, probably for the same reason.

    I thought it was a very interesting idea and "concept", but a total misfire on the big screen. You lose ALL engrossment in the film itself and begin to think of your own body and when it's finished so you can get outta there!
    I am extremely serious.

    I can watch shaky cam alright, I just don't know what the hell is going of most of the time.

    I completely agree. That's why I make a point of watching these things on TV.

    On general rules, i am against shaky cams; I believe it takes a lot to make a proper and balanced , good shaky-cam movie, most directors seem to lack; in comparison with Tony Scott for one, most "shaky-cam" movies by younger directors who got the money and gear but not much more - look like the other kind of shaky movies which have...shaky things in them.

    Well, i did say "it takes a lot" and "on general rules"

    General rules bear exceptions, [REC] is one brilliant example in which there was BALANCE. smile

    And again: watched it on TV (which worked brilliantly...I think the medium is FAR better suited to that particular style).
