It looks like tape dropout. I've never seen that online.

I want to watch it though. Seems like it will make me uncomfortable. I like a film that can do that without, well, without the stuff that is in the Saw series.

Trailer? It's misnamed. Starts with all cuttable stuff. Definitely a short to the point cut is needed for a trailer.

No offense Kevin, but that is the first material, shot in the US by an US crew that I ever saw, that looks total typical German.

Was that intended?

If its a good thing frank - then yes it was intended - if not a good thing - it was the pa's fault - not what I had intended at all.
Joe - the next film is for you.

Ample use of wide angle glass/wide shots and camera hight, often above the eye line are typical German - or even European if you will - techniques or habits.

Since the grass is always greener on the other side, I prefer the American approach (longer glass, lower angles) though, but from your side of the Atlantic it might be vise versa :)

Hey Frank - well at the end of the day - I'm sure i've seen just as many non-american films as american - habit I guess. it wasn't conscious. Sure do love my german films though......

As a German, I have to say I hate those habits - they are based on decades of unwillingness to move forward and improve. Instead, even insist that it is superior as it's more artsy (it's actually just more smug, stubborn and lazy). In Germany, art and commerce are not compatible in the minds of the self-proclaimed wiseguys.

Besides that personal opinion, I think it might work really well for this, the characters and plot seem refreshingly unorthodox and got me interested. If you can keep that mood (ok, music plays a huge part in this teaser) throughout the movie it might work very well.

Interesting observation. Much the same here in Sweden.
