New CHAMAN trailer

I've been working on a trailer that more accurately represented my comic book now on amazon. Animation is hard to do and I could not figure out the software so I created a trailer that sticks with static art with some camera moves. What do you think?

Overall, looks awesome man.
I'm a storyboard artist, so I will add a few shorts from my pov:

How to make a trailer?

-Make a short story.
-Make a storyboard.
-Use a few images from the comic.
-Draw the rest.
-Use single frame pages.

Ta-daaa, that's it.

thanks Metalini, i can always use the help. at one point, i spent more time learning software on animation and i still dont get it. it's probably easier than i think and i still want to learn how to do it. your advice fits what i want to do than becoming an animator right now

since i was working with jpegs at first i started with hd movie maker pro (windows) because i could indicate how many seconds i wanted an image to sit on the screen. in that program i matched the images to the audio which i previously created and created an mpeg4. afterward i used imovie (mac program) to add fades and zoom ins as well as the sound effect at the end. i couldn't figure out how to do everything in one program. imovie is a little more complex and if i knew the program better i may have been able to do everything there.

I have no problem with the visuals.
It's a comic, so that works and gives them a taste of the interior etc.

The clicking and slightly mumbled voiceover, was abit distracting.
Maybe record that bit a few times and use the clearest one.
If your mic or recording gear isn't that great, add another very quiet layer of background noise.... such as wind or rain or city noises. This is a standard movie practise to add ambient or background noise, it grounds the recording in the real world.

I agree with you sevens. the clicking was the result of using a voice changing program, i did not want to sound like me. i recorded in segments and the program makes the clicking sound at the start and end of the recording. the mumbling is my great acting lol. i realize now i could've edited them out. still new to the world of home made trailers but the budget is right.

My friends sound too normal. ideally i would hire kevin conrad and let him go to town. there are probably some really good voice changing programs but i dont want to pay for them.

that is a very cool offer, thanks. sometimes i dont like working on my own stuff lol, but all i have to do now is put out a 4-5 page preview. after the preview i'll be working on a new book which i've been mapping out. i've been looking at manga books and want to put that to good use.

you are a good dude Metalini but i'm out of the trailer business for a while. you know this better than i, filmaking is a tough business. i'm going back to just drawing for a while but for a short time, i was an actor, writer, film editor, sound guy, marketing guy and i did little well lol. right now i'm trying to pick up some drawing tips from a couple of manga artists for a story i'm working on, i'm in the character design phase..
