Using Photoshop, After Effects and Final Cut Pro, Jaron Pitts has created an awesome trailer for a Green Lantern movie starring Canadian cult-fave actor Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Serenity, Castle) as Hal Jordon.
Jaron very cleverly mined the following properties for clips to include: Planet of the Apes, Serenity Trailer, Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, Stardust Trailer, The Lord of the Rings - The Fellowship of the Ring, Firefly, Dragonball Evolution Trailer, Galaxy Quest, The Fountain Trailer, Superman Returns Trailer, The Day the Earth Stood Still, Smallville, Justice League TAS, GI Joe Trailer, Contact, Star Trek Enterprise, Star Wars Episode III, The Mutant Chronicles Trailer, Iron Man, Star Trek Trailer, Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe Cutscene, The Chronicles of Riddick, Kamen Rider, Bedtime Stories, MIB 2, Escape from Witch Mountain Trailer, The Matrix Revolutions, The Chronicles of Narnia - Prince Caspian and White Noise 2.
The music is “Forces of Destiny” and “Freedom Fighters” by Two Steps from Hell.
At the time of this writing has almost 850 000 views. He also took a few seconds plus the final logo from Mike Afford’s amazing Green Lantern trailer (embedded right below) which was was created using Cinema 4D. There some artworking in Photoshop, with post production work done in After Effects CS3, grading with Magic Bullet ‘Looks’. And yes, Mike uses the very popular Lux Aeterna as his theme music. As of this writing, it has garnered more than three quarters of a million views.

If, like me, you’re a hardcore fan of science fiction, you’ll be very excited when you see the content packs that Reallusion has recently released for iClone: Space Stations Vol 1 (11 stations) and Colony Buildings Vol 1 (11 buildings).
iClone 3.2C or above is required. Each item has been shrunk in size, so they are suitable for taking long and middle shots. Even better, each pack usually retails for $94.00, but each on is available for $59.95 until June 30th. That’s a 36% savings.
What I am looking forward to next is interior packs from the same artist(s) for the stations and the buildings. Do note that’s just me hoping for that, nothing has been announced, or even hinted at. It would just makes a lot of sense to me.
