EPYTOMBS - Official Teaser Trailer, I would love your thoughts

About two and a half years ago I wanted to step outside of my comfort zone as a filmmaker. I started with a question which was, If I were to create my own graphic novel what would I do differently? The result of this was a project called "Epytombs". I spent about a year developing it and then I took what little money I had and produced, directed, and am currently editing a short pilot episode for the show. The pilot is currently in post production but I finished the teaser trailer and I would love to share it with all of you. It is my first project that I have done professionally outside of my college short films. I had an amazing cast and crew who were willing to work with me because they had faith in the script, which is the most humbling experience I have ever had. There is no way I could have made this without them so I am eternally grateful and I hope you all enjoy the teaser.

Synopsis: In a city plagued by bizarre occurrences a group of strangers will be drawn together by a terrifying entity, and lured into a world they can never escape.

Looks interesting. IMO i wasnt a fan of the graphics you used. Just didn't seem it worked with the style you are going after. Besides that look forward to seeing the final product.

Thank you so much for your feedback. Yea the style is different but I am exploring a few things in this and it was something that felt right in the concept phase so I wanted to maintain everything I had planned through the pilot. I will definitely keep your feedback in mind, again thanks.

That was pretty awesome, congrats! Only thing I didn't like was the VO, besides (which is really just my personal critique it may be fine)that you did a hell of a job. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks a lot for your feedback. Yea the VO so far seems to be divided. Some people absolutely love it and some are on the fence so thank you for adding your opinion to the pool I value all of them so I really appreciate it.

Great music, sound design, cinematography and editing. The VO is too much - the narrator tries to scary us with his voice and interpretation. Other than this, greatly done!
