I've finished the unit but the file was too large to submit so I just put it on youtube.
This is an absolutely perfect example of a trailer mash, complete with change of genre. It is well paced, and the audio editing and soundtrack work very well.
An exemplary submission!

I am very proud of our trailer. This is the best editing me and Ryan have ever created. We got stuck on a very simple part but than we got help from Mr. Parker. I think we did well in putting the clips together and making them come together well.
Martin & Ryan, well done on an exemplary piece of work, on what is generally considered a very difficult topic. You have taken a diverse range of action clips and combined them together to form a trailer for your own film, Nightfall. In doing so you have overcome the difficulties presented by the appearance of many different actors and scenes, and created a fluid and interesting narrative. Having scene your work in production, I can attest to the high number of clips included, and the intricate video editing you used to bring it all together. In collaborating so well with each other, you have created a piece that is much stronger than either of you would alone. You have worked hard, focused well, and engaged brilliantly...and the result is clearly your best ever work. Very well done!

This was a trailer that I made in Spanish Class. I reused it here(with translated subtitles) because I realized it was a trailer mash, and the topics beyond the trailer mash unit look really interesting.
Joe, awesome work: it is well edited, funny and entertaining. The subtitles definitely help. I thought the long subtitles stuck at the top of one scene could have been better done as scrolling subtitles at the bottom. Overall, more excellent work!
