Good use of sound assets, very effective and nice and thick. Always a good thing.Visual quality left a lot to be desired, thankfully there wasn't an awful lot of it. If you're trying to make a trailer, particularly focus on effective use of text, the font and colors didn't have any impact what-so-ever and ended up looking like something slapped together in Windows Movie Maker. That was compounded by the fact that he couldn't spell 'reckoning', rather an unfortunate typo.It does seem rather odd that if he got a professional sounding voice-actor for the actual voice-over, that he couldn't find someone with a mic that wasn't infected with electrical interference and hiss for the whispers. Regardless, a good use of sound is often overlooked when it comes to machinima, and it's effective use is vitally important if you want to create atmosphere and tension. This production did that very well, and deserves praise for it. Polish up the video-aspects and presentation and he'll be onto something. Oh, and buy a legit version of FRAPS, that watermark is ugly as sin.
