If any of you remember, a while back I posted a video/film called "The Mechanic". Here is the trailer I made for it! For your enjoyment...

It looks great and I have just one suggestion; put in a few more visual card moves like the nice looking turnover change (maybe a quick shot of the ace of spades turned face down on the deck, deal a few cards, then show the ace still on top of the deck), since this is a movie about cheating. I mean like the shots at the beginning of Shade...

I'm just saying this because the turnover change looked nice and I think your average layperson would be impressed by some more stuff like that...

Brillian trailer, it's made me want to go and watch the film which is what a good trailer should do.

Well Done!

Hi Clock,

Its a bold and creative enterprise Clock. You have a promising future ahead of you. I do agree with William that more concentration on visual card moves would have been better. For me, the emphasis on the exchanging of suspicious looks between the young men threatened to push the whole enterprise into...well..somewhat less serious waters.

Regards,

Paul H

Nice credits and all. Didn't saw much of real moves done. And didn't really liked that deck switch. To my knowlege deck switch would never will be attempted in one on one games. that's just my opinion, I may be wrong. Kind of reminding me of Shade wannabe. BUT you are the only one who actually done it so far, so well done.
