When I first posted this, I was going to write why it is the length it is, but figured it did not matter. now, after so many people feel the need to let me know how they feel about the 4 mins+ trailer, I have decided to share the reasons why it is the way it is.
Now don't get me wrong, I have no problem accepting criticism, I welcome it, but since I have a reason for this particular one, I figured I would post it. To quote Dr. Frankenfurter in RHPS when first showing off Rocky and met with Janet stating he was not her type of guy:"I didn't make him for you!". The trailer was not edited down to 2 or 3 minutes, because it was the perfect length for my target audience: me.
Also, while making this I found a Lord of the Rings trailer that was 3 1/2 mins long. Why so long? Because its a grand epic. Therefore, one can assume that the movie that this trailer represents is 20% grander of an epic than Return of the King.
So now to you I say:
"Welcome to the Trailer for the epic film "Requiem For A Day Off". Now 20% Grander than Lord of the Rings!"*
music is "lux aeterna", full orchestral remix by clint mansell from the film "requiem for a dream".
