Film Description
********WINNER 3rd Archaic Award Ceremony for Best Trailer**********

The Dead Cases-

This is a Film Noir with a twist.

John Nobel is a man who can raise the dead, a trick that served him well while he was a cop, and later a PI. He spent the last 3 years in prison for a crime he didn't commit, thats until a Mob Boss arranges his release..because his daughter has gone missing, and he knows John is the only one who can help. Step into a seedy noir underworld like nothing you have ever seen. Its part Frank Miller, part Dashiell Hammett detective thriller with a new twist.

The film is in production and 1/2 way done.

I look forward to your comments, and hopefully reviews.

The small wmv we have on TMO doesn't really do it justice, and I hope to get it hosted in full res so you can enjoy the finished product if you like it here.

I still don't get why I get little glitches here and there, but this one seems pretty bug free.

Cheers,

Jase180

"Nobody brings back the bad things like I do..."

Film noir with a twist, indeed. Cross-breeding pulp conventions like there's no tomorrow, the trailer for The Dead Cases gives us a clear indication that this will be a smart, self-aware murder mystery cum horror story that'll provoke our intuition and tingle the spine. Clearly, this is the work of someone who knows cinema, like the illegitimate love-child of Raymond Chandler and George Romero.

With spot-on cinematography, sophisticated lighting, tense editing, a hard drinking protagonist who looks absolutely intriguing, and a lively score from JazzX, the trailer certainly offers a lot of promise to the viewer.

All in all, this looks pretty darn awesome, and I look forward to the final product.

Wow jase180! you really got my attention with this mega-teaser; you clearly have an epic film noir in the makings.

The great cast, the excellent music, the intricate storyline, so many elements to take in with one teaser; I might have retained even more had it been a tad more succinct.
I'm hooked now...

Intriguing mon ami. Very very good music and a story that sounds different (zombie fan boy me :P)

Cut together very well, if a little long for a trailer/teaser. But, I was captivated regardless, hope you can live up to the standard you've now set yourself ;)

Now that was a teaser that knows how to tease! Beautifully shot and edited with a sure hand and a cool eye. Wonderful score by JazzX set the mood of the genre and period perfectly as did the voice over. This is what one does to get the hype going on what looks to be a soon released box office smash!

A visually stunning and very professional trailer.
The superb music and polished presentation have certainly left me intrigued about the feature.
If I�??m overly critical I could say it was perhaps a little longer than necessary for a trailer, but that's just nit-picking.

I enjoyed this glossy production a lot and I�??ll definitely be there for the main event.

While this was a bit too long to constitute a TMO teaser, it was still a fantatstic and compelling preview to an ineviatably fabulous thriller. The images were sliced and diced to perfection, coupled with heart-pounding music and solid VOs. I felt like a kid in a candy store watching this teaser, with the epic imagery and appealing style. This is surely going to be a TMO classic.

Very exciting, superb teaser that does a fantastic job of drawing you in. I felt that the climax went on for a bit too long, but other than that, this was one amazing trailer.

For my first review jase180, you really surpassed my expectations! From start to finish everything kept me wanting so much more. The music was pulsating my anticipation to its limits! Camera shots and angles looked professionally done as well. Looks like you know what your doing and are organizing everything that needs to be done. Good luck to you on the real movie.

Nice teaser. Great overlays, great camera work, great editing. Great sound effects. Great emotion from the characters. It felt like a real trailer. Love the part where the camera panes out of the hole in the stomach. That was pretty cool. Nice job.

Well I'm teased, this looks to be a very interesting movie. The story looks really detailed and original. Necromancy, mafia and Zombies, what more could you ask for? I also like your choice of scenes and music and your editing was spot on with a fluid movement through the whole teaser that is really well paced..

I'll be watching out for this.

Looks awesome! Here are 5 things I loved about this trailer.
1. Great background music that corresponded with the scenes.
2. Excellent voice-oevers
3. The Trailer was well put-together, and the perfect length.
4. The opening credits were really good looking.
5. The storyline seems to be complex, twisting, and unique.

Please review my movie called "The Blood Wars 2"

I am reviewing the teaser here -
Overall looks fantastic. VO's were good if a little quite in parts, sound and music fitted well and the sets etc were utilised to their full potential. My one criticism would be in the second half of the teaser, after the VO's and captions had ended - i though this went on too long and became simply a mesh of incongruent scenes. Although these were visually very pleasing they didn't add to the anticipation of the full film as they made little sense out of context.
Look forward to seeing the finished product!

(I'd really appreciate your views on my very first release 'the quite gun pt1 re-edit [the 're-edit part was a mistake but thats why it's called learning]. I am about to write the second part using the S&E pack and would like to know what you think of the first part before i release the sequal)

cheers

Very Good Trailer,
Voice recording, very good. Nice Voice for this movie type.
Also the way you used the background music, first the slow part [introduction], and the action music when some very intresting cutscenes. Big plus. The cutscenes are very good chosen in my opinion. It feels like alot of thing is going to happen, and the scenes secure for a good StoryLine.
And eh, when the the viewer get caught by the realistic sounds, and images.. they absolutly wont recognise the bugs/glitches. At least, i dint saw any one :)
Saw some new mods, you really spend some time for this!

Well theres only one thing left to say, 5 stars for this trailer. And i hope the actual movie will get those 5 stars to!
Good Luck! I Can't wait.

You've done it! You are the exception to the rule. The first trailer ever that gotten 5 stars from me for a trailer. It was just too good the opening, music, visuals, and Vo, all point to this as being a Definite Must See Movie. I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for this one. Awesome Job!

This is what I call a real trailer! Wow, oh, gosh, you leaved me with no speech! I wouldn't have watched this if it wasn't because of your thread at the Movies forum!

I am glad I watched this! You know, when I am older, I want to be a filmmaker and editor. Maybe, you could give me some advice! Watch some of my trailers, I got very very positive comments and ratings, I would appreciate it!

I am 04_perez_a, I am spanish, and you are right about TMO, it's the best software game to create and explore your own ideas!

However, your trailer is really good, but, I think that you need more rapid scenes, a part of the trailer where the music accelerates(or speeds up).

But, the trailer is spectacular!

These are the two best trailers I have online, I hope you can watch them, it would really help me for someone like you to review these:-

Reviewing by JennyN

Hahaha. I knew the voice sounded familiar. This is a powerful trailer. One of the best I have seen. Loved the wonderful credits peppered throughout the footage. This is the most professional trailer I have seen. I felt like I was watching a real trailer. The music was elegant to start then climaxed to an epic adventure score. I can�??t wait to see this movie!!!

Great Great Great!!!

If the rest of the film achieves this level of detail and timing then we're in for a hell of a show! Noir with a twist - sounds like gold to me!

THIS is how trailers are made.

I like the story idea a lot and I know I will enjoy the movie. The reason I only gave it 4 stars is because I thought the trailer was a little long - I found my mind wandering after the first minute. So I suggest shortening the trailer to hold interest. Also the paragraph at the beginning was hard for me to read as it went by too fast. I suggest narrating that part instead.

Trailer Review

Plot: 9/10 I pretty much know what the story is about. Good job!

Appeal: 10/10 Very appealing. I wouldn't mind watching the real film.

Trailer: 10/10 Yes this was a trailer. Had the trailer feel all the way through the movie.

Editing: 9/10 Could have been shorter, but not bad.

Final: 38/40

A tantalizingly good trailer of what promises to be a phenomenal story. I see the potential, and with the snippets you've provided, this is a potential that will be realized. I am truly looking forward to the full feature. The music implemented was perfect for eliciting suspense and giddy excitement--beautiful choice. I did find some of the scenes to be a bit drab near the end (eg. the man lighting the cigarette, two men shaking hands, et. al.); I think it might be best to actually escalate the suspense near the end of the trailer with more exciting shots. These same shots could be made more exciting if placed in more perilous or sinister context with the use of dialogue (such as the men shaking hands and one saying "...all this, for the price of a soul? Done deal.") Well, you get the idea. Again, this is just my own opinion, but I hope you do find something in this lengthy review of value.

Interesting! This looks like it has the potential to be REALLY cool when it comes out! This trailer did go on a bit long, in my opinion. Could have ended around the 2-minute mark and would've been better, I think. Still, looks great! I'll keep an eye out for this one!

Posted on March 19, 2007

This was promising for sure, and I like the feeling it sends out. Film noir meets zombies? That's a genre I would like to see more from!

As a trailer, it started off good, and it had good music and some interesting camera angles. But I must say that after the introduction, it dragged on too long for a trailer, without giving any interesting information. It felt more like random action scenes than anything else. For me, it could have been shortened down quite a lot, and instead give us that in the full movie.

I look forward to the actual movie. Your studio show great potentional, and I will keep my eyes open for future releases. Good work!

Some awesome cinematic style visuals on offer here, giving this trailer a very authentic theatrical feel.

Some truly excellent and highly original camera work too.

Great work.

Very much looking forward to the movie.
