@A FOUNDLING (The Mojave Experiment) - feature film trailer
by Harvey Wiesenberg
The warmth of your imagery,those sunny- bleached- reddish- pinks,the rocky location, along with the young women who were the central characters.Gave the story a film festival quality.Good Luck.

by Michael Murray
Great looking trailer. Although I couldn't tell if the sister has an infection or afection.

Yes I agree, stick to the story, less is more.

My 2 cents.
I think the film looks great and you pick interesting scenes, but...
by Larry Eisner
The music doesn't really jibe with the visuals (I agree with the previous comment by Brian) - The music would tell you this is a love story or simply an exploration/inward growth story, and the visuals tell us about two things:

An alien or something and the death of a girl and a horse in result (and possibly more danger ahead)


A story about how foreigners were treated in the Old West.

All three are incongruent (at least in the trailer, not making a judgement of the film since I haven't seen it).

I was interested for the first quarter of the trailer, then realized it was like a story that kind of rambles on, needing someone to bring us back to the point... It can be something great, though. It just needs some serious editing.

I'd say, even if the film itself has this kind of undecidedness to it, cut the trailer to show the film as either the exploration story of two sisters, as a thriller with an alien in the old-west thing, or as a commentary about discrimination. Pick one, and go for it. It will make for a much more solid trailer.

And you can always make multiple cuts, if you are concerned that the "message" will get watered down by this approach. But you need to get this focused.
Show us, don't tell us

Cut this trailer in half. Dump all the titles coming in and out to tell me what to think/feel while I watch it. The images should do the "talking" for you. Too much dialogue for a trailer. And confusing as heck. Why do the Asian girls have on warpaint/football player eyeblack, exactly? Genre blending - nearly ALWAYS ends up being far weaker, ultimately, than if you'd gone Western or gone Sci-Fi. Trailer fails to build any tension (partly the music's fault, partly the editing, and again with the danged titles popping in). So far my reviews all sound similar but I have to harp on this: It's a visual medium. Yes, you're a story "teller", but especially in a trailer your images need to do the "telling". A perfect trailer would need NO dialogue and NO narrator, and would still draw me in and make me want to run out and see the film just to find out what happens. This one, not so much. Points for gutsy attempt at genre-blending, but see my earlier comment...
I'm confused
by Brian Berneker
I wasn't sure if this was supposed to be drama or thriller.

Is the baby a monster? the chime music doesn't build tension, so I assume no..

Is it a heartfelt drama about compassion and a stranger in a strange land? Her accent is too clean for her to be from TOO far, so she must be a local...

This leaves a few too many questions about what the pretense is than the what the story holds. These incongruities would be enough for me wait for it to come out on DVD.

(time to put my helmet on)
A very well done trailer, Carly
by Ron Lindeboom
It moves the audience well and involves you in the story and the characters in a way that makes me want to see the movie and experience the complete story.
