Thanks for the compliments, ffdude1906! I’m glad you like it! Soul Bossa Nova is one of my favourite opening themes of all time and was perfect for the Austin Powers film series.
Thanks mo! I make an effort to get the timing down to the 1/30th of a second (is that a millisecond? It’s the smallest division available on iMovie, I think that’s practically each frame of the movie). And thanks for the sub!
Thanks for the constructive criticisms Castoro Chiaro (nice alliteration). I see what you mean by the constant cutting being a bit jarring, but I went with that because of the staccato tempo of the main chorus. In the more relaxed bits when the trombone were playing, I returned to the fade-in/fade-outs to emphasize the pacing (watch the part where Wall-E journeys from the Earth to the Axiom). But I’m glad you liked the beginning, I used the fade ins/outs here too just to set up the scene. I’ll take your advice though for future MVs, just to create a little variety. I’m very thankful for your suggestions for improvement, as I appreciate those more than praises, really.
You’re welcome, I thought Soul Bossa Nova sounded like a cheeky song, and when juxtaposed against Wall-E’s clumsy antics to impress Eve, should make for a hilarious MV, so I’m glad of the outcome! The MV took me three nights (the quickest I’ve ever done for one!) and a little over the weekend to get it out on time.
I’ve seen reaction videos for the Beverly HIlls Chihuahua trailer, some of them were really funny (and not to mention the girl who cried watching Wall-E’s). It’s up to you and your sis, if you’re both comfortable with it, and the vid can provoke the same reaction as it did the first time (which would prove that it works even on repeat viewings! ), then go ahead and post a response vid. I’m very flattered by your sis’ comments, so please thank her for me. And thanks for the Fave!
Woah, a new favourite? Aw, shucks!
“YOQUERIO TACO BELL!”
In honour of the passing of Gidget, the famous Taco Bell chihuahua, here’s the reupload of the last of my classic mash-up trailers in the “Where’s Wall-E” series. Read the synopsis below, and enjoy!
Chloe, a pampered pooch from the most overrated neighbourhood in the U.S.A., finds herself lost in the mean streets of Mehico, where she meets an assortment of Latino stereotypes from other movies (including a trio who suspiciously sound like Cheech Marin). Her not-so-secret-admirer, Papi, embarks on an Incredible Journey to rescue his one true love. If only he can stop endorsing a certain fast-food chain that sells tacos first…
Keep an eye out for a Ratatouille cameo, as well as other various Disney dog flicks and Latino movies! And Cheech Marin fans will get the running joke throughout this trailer!
