Re: Star Trek: Renegades

I liked it. The inspiration from JJ's trailers for Star Trek Into Darkness is clear, but it's just not cut quite as fast, so it loses something for me. That, and the "Transformers"-y title at the end took me right out of it. Worse, I still have no clue what this picture is going to be about.

Otherwise, the thing looks like it was shot beautifully.

Re: Star Trek: Renegades

Month after the Kickstarter that trailer just brought the show bursting to life for me. It's shot beautifully and in HD, there is a lot of drama and it shows off new and old characters alike.

The uniforms have grown on me - of course they needed new ones as we've moved on since days of the First Contact ones, a hybrid of the TOS, Monster Maroons and TNG style.

It's great of course to see old friends like Tuvok and Chekov back in action and I admit being surprised (in a good way) to how different this is to Of Gods and Men. It feels fresh and new, aren't we lucky to have this in a world when JJ only produced 1 movie every few years?! Even so, I like JJ's films but at least this revives the prime timeline.

I admit I find it difficult to call it a 'fan film' when official are involved and the standard is so so high. To me OGAM is the seventh TOS film (even though the prologue of Generations is set before and is so important to the plot)

It leaves you thirsty for so much more, can't wait to see the finished pilot/movie!

While I have my reservations, I am honestly quite looking forward to this. You can tell there's a lot of love behind the project, which is more than I can say about some of the official releases over the past few years. Love seeing all the alien characters.

I think I preferred the previous trailer. I'm not sure what exactly is up with the opening narration and Tuvok seems to be wearing a paisley waistcoat, which isn't really logical. It is nice though, to see a fan film that visually could be a modern TV series.

It's a little overwrought. I also don't have any idea what's going on except there's a new planet and Chekov fears the Federation will collapse.

Re: Star Trek: Renegades

I think there are lessons to be learned from the trailers for ST09 and STID. Whether you loved or hated the movies, they had good trailers. One of the reasons was that they had quotable lines. Things like "Is there anything you would not do for your family?" or "I dare you to do better.". There's nothing like that here and so it isn't as memorable. Now, I'm not going to prejudge the film itself because trailers can create false impressions. But I think it is important to actually give people a sense of what the film is about.

Re: Star Trek: Renegades

I like the look of the new teaser, but as a teaser I think the first one is much better. It´s just talking people again as far as I can see and I still have no clue what´s it about. The new "enemy" is not very frightening at all, mostly because of his limited ability to speak - you should consider looping the audio on this one. The "scream" scene feels rather amateurish, probably also due to the less than perfect audio.

I´d love to have seen some location - planetary or bridges scenes - or even some starships. It is set in space, isn´t it?

So, all in all - a good base, but lots of room for improvement.

This is just basically using the raw footage from the shoot. The footage will be enhanced, and of course, ADR'd for the audio. The purpose of this teaser was to give a quick glimpse of the film. The title shapes and the transformer logo will not be in the film this was just something our DP threw in there.

Half of the trailer is a woman writing on a wall, I do not understand how this can give us a quick glimpse of the film?

Think the first trailer was better.

Re: Star Trek: Renegades

I like the opening, with the woman writing on the blackboard, but then it kinda becomes a jumble - and four viewings later I still can't make out what Big Blue is saying. It looks to be more the story of Khan's great-great-great (repeat to fade) granddaughter rather than the Voyager reunion I was really hoping for. The idea of new planet popping up out of thin air is pretty neat, tho.

Taken bit for bit, it looks good, it sounds good, but the editing makes it feel weird.
