My first semi-serious attempt at film making [solo project]

I would greatly appreciate some thoughts on this teaser/short. Especially in the areas of cinematography, colour grading and sound design. This was unfortunately made on a shoe string. One camera, one cheap lens, a small tripod and a car. I'm largely focusing on cinematography at this stage. A big part of this project was to take the time and effort to reach remote locations in South East Australia to make up for the lack of gear. Lots of lugging equipment up mountains in the middle of no where was involved. It was worth it in the end... I hope.

Oh and please disregard the cringe worthy 'Festival de Cannes' logo at the beginning. I was experimenting with logo formats in premier pro and exported it without thinking haha.

Looks cool, although i find it looks wrong with the letterbox. I see you have made a composition for 16/9. Don't put letterbox only because it gives that "Film" look. It's all about composition.

Looks great, and the music is giving it gravitas. You can see some banding and blown highlights in the skies, but nothing too distracting. I'm not sure about the teaser edit though, seemed a bit random.
