    Default Fan Made Trailer Challenge

    I'm an attorney, a Crossfit athlete and now officially vying for the championships in the Biggest Nerd for Transformers contest, I've come to accept it as such. I figure it might be a little fun for some of the forum members to chop together some of the Transformer trailers and put them to music, kind of as a way of showing Bay that even though his source material was a cartoon about alien robots who can turn into automobiles, he's had an impact on some of us. I know most of you are the die-hards, like myself, so I figured I'd start a thread for whomever wanted to get in on this. There's obviously no reward but it could be fun and since I love the conversations on here I figure I'd like most of what you all will end up putting together.

    This is a trailer I made using clips from all of the Dark of the Moon trailers so far (yes, Mirage included and slowed down for more screen time), some clips from the first movie and some from RotF. I'm a complete rookie at this stuff, seriously, so it's not anything amazing, but it was fun putting it to music. For all you fans of the original TF movie (cartoon version a la the 80's) I added a track from the movie to the clip, Spectre General's "Nothing's Gonna Stand in Our Way" from the fight scene Kup and Hotrod had after they crashed. Here's the link to the video, hope you all enjoy and hope to see at least a few video responses. I know we're nearing the end of the shootfortheedit forum discussions on Transformers, but it's been a pleasure chatting with all of you:

    I made one a while back, using the available trailers and TV spots at the time, combining it with "Instruments Of Destruction" from the 1986 film.



    And this doesn't really count, but I also took the theatrical trailer, and combined with with the two Rebuild Of Evangelion animes. Turned in a really cool result.

    I'll start making one. I'm gonna try more than just putting songs over the clips though.

    I've just finished another trailer trying to use the sounds and music from the original spots. It turned out well and I hope I'll find time to post it today.

    OK, so here we go.

    I've tried to make a trailer with the best scenes from all TV spots and without any human characters in it. I wanted to stay with the original music and sounds from the 3D trailer and I think the edited music and sounds turned out well.

    Hope you like it.

    Really nice! A million times better sound that I had in my trailer! Maybe I should stay out of this competition since I'll have as good chance as a snowball in hell to finish with the top 10. But it seems like CesarCardoso has already registered my trailer to this competition...

    Alber... I have to say, I don't like it at all. I indulge in it! It's insane how you mixed the music with the scenes. Really nice man... seriously well done and very impressive.

    So I don't think I can do any better than this... I wouldn't necessarily call it a trailer, that's for sure, but it's clips from TF1, ROTF, and all of the DOTM trailers thus far. There are a ton of transformations, a couple comic overlays, lots of fighting, a sweet song to run the audio, some slowed down scenes and some sped up scenes. I'd like to see if someone with much better talent than I could make a vid with "Monster" by Paramore (which is the song they wrote for TF: DOTM) when the song comes out on June 3rd... it could make for a hell of a clip/trailer type video. I hope ya'll like it, let me know what you think. Take care:

    I've been thinking of trying to get one up on youtube before the movie makes it debut in theaters. Just want to figure out the music then if I want to add in parts from the first two.

    I want to use score from a different movie, but what is throwing me off lol

    Hi
    I don't know if its the right place to put this video. I made this a year ago and it took me a year to make it. Some of the models are from a designer RazzieMbessai.
    This franchise made me want to study CGI.My favorite movies of all time.
    There is no story in this trailer. I just made scene after scene and made a trailer.
    I live in Japan so I can only see TF3 a month after the world wide release
    Anyway hope you like it. Thank You!

    I used the Windows Live Movie maker, Real Player to convert the trailers to mp3 audio files and a simple audio cutter and audio joiner.
    Though the audio part is a bit tricky with Windows Live Movie maker, especially if you try to make the background music to match from clip to clip if you want to use the original trailer clips.
    But having just one or two music clips on the whole video as background music, you can make pretty good videos with Windows Live Movie maker as well...
