    "1st Place $100 + Free membership to Godcraft"
    what does "free membership to godcraft" stand for?
    most of us are already members, does this mean you can "invite a friend"?

    I want people to know Fly Hacking is Against the Rules. But I will state this. If you are not caught nor if anyone cares the mods and I will not persue it for moving making. But this is one time thing and this does not include speed hacking. Speed hacking will get you banned so will Fly hacking but caught will not go after you in this case if you keep it private in game.

    Any talk about this will get you banned!

    Thanks,
    Kane

    Not bad the start I would have changed moon texture to something bigger. Also if that part was done in SMP I would do it in single player kept jumping there. I might also consider speeding moving like 1.5 to 2.0x just to make the moon move more.

    I also found that you did a good job but most the stuff you showed I felt was small scale and not enough large scale things. I think if you mixed the 2 you could make it easily like a 5-8min video making it feel like its everlasting. Maybe make music more slow and going to epic and epic and near the end show like 10 big structures diff angles and such and make them come fast in the climax of the music..

    lol

    Kane I just would like to point out that trailers tend to be about 2 mins when they start becoming 3 to 5 mins long You start to loose peoples attention. Theres a rule of thumb that applys to youtube, But is starting apply to evry thing even hollywood. Most cuts should be about 10 secs long. todays audience loose interest when cuts tend to be longer then 10 seconds. Now that being said that ovisly dos not apply to all things. However when you make a trailer the idea is to capture the viewer. I'm probably coming off as all negative and I dont mean to. I love this idea!

    I agree Galkurn but I think Minecraft really take a different role here. Even more since were advertising here and even if they stop half way we already captured a lot in their minds. I guess not filling the end with all the best stuff is not the best idea. But doing that fast flash back in the end using diff angles and such I think would be cool tbh.

    I personally would watch any good Minecraft trailer if it lasted 10 minutes even as long they kept showing new and epic structures.

    You make a good point. And I would too. I think its sad that are generation has such a short attention span.
