We’re getting ready to introduce Obi, the hero of Iron Sky The Coming Race at the Berlin Film Festival later this month. To do that we’ve put together a small video introduction. Before we release it to the whole wide world we’d love to get your input on it.

More specifically the texts. These ones:

INTRODUCING

THE BADASS LADY FROM THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON

OBI WASHINGTON

We have three questions for you guys.

1.) Do you think they fit the style?
2.) What (if any) image do you get about Obi as a character from the video?
3.) Do you have any suggestions how to make the texts better?

We’d love to hear your feedback, so do contribute.

Obi

Re-arrange it:

INTRODUCING

OBI WASHINGTON

THE BADASS LADY FROM THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON

I’d also re-think the length of the last sentence. Its a tad cumbersome.

Maybe:

INTRODUCING

BADASS OBI WASHINGTON

FROM THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON

Give you a nice angle on the text too.

And also the beginning of the trailer could start with Obi saying: "I'm keeping everxbody here alive. Does that count?" (0:32-0:34) and then continue as it is now. This statement, to me, kinda summons all about her.

Badass

I am not a big fan of “badass”. I like “lady” offset with something else to give her character. I do not know enough about the rest of her role. Maybe something that relates a bit more to the work she does or her journey or her relationship with her mother.

For balancing you could also make the “introducing” bit longer. In an 80s movie something like “super duper productions proudly presents” would have been used.

tough young woman with lots of tasks to solve

I had to watch the trailer twice to get all the texts. I´m no native english-speaker but always thougt my listening and understanding skills were quite good.

Hence, I think I got the gist the first time.

Obi seems to be a tough young woman who goes her own way while taking responsibilities for others. She seems self-consoius and at times agressive and at the end of the trailer I felt that the aggression comes from the exessive demands she encounters.

A bit less Obi in a chair – more action from the movie

I mean very short snips from the movie and a bit less talking. Please make the music more intense. This is far too tame for bad ass – more bass more ‘cachunga’ – I would propose.

I totally agree, too tame. Show us that she is a bad ass don't tell us,Give her some ink while you're at it and for goodness sake crank up some blood pounding music. ..Just sayin

I missed the long text!

In a way I totally missed the text “THE BADASS LADY FROM THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON” on the first look as I was giggling to the obvious “Apple 1984” reference. On the second view of the video I actually paid attention to that text. Combined with the other stuff in the video, I think the text probably describes quite well the character, or the image of the character this promo video summoned in my head.

But I would prefer the font to be slightly thicker.

Hammer Time

I agree with jonathan@flack.ie that you should cut down and re-arrange the text in the beginning, but I would go even further.  It should be:

INTRODUCING

OBI WASHINGTON

FROM THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON

Reference to “badass” isn’t necessary.  She’s throwing a hammer.  Show, don’t tell.

I would even consider dropping FROM THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON.  It’s confusing and doesn’t go anywhere.

The text as she’s sitting in the chair is a bit hard to read because of the background.  I would darken and blur the right hand of the screen just a bit, so the text stands out more.  It also looks like the text might not be 100% opaque though that may be because it’s so thin.  I like the style.  Wouldn’t change that or make the letters thicker, just play with the background to make it pop.

The text fades may be a bit too slow.  I’d try speeding them up by 25%.

Wish there was more action.  A shot or two of her running around would help especially if it meant seeing less of her just sitting in the chair.

Thanks, these are good comments and we made the changes you suggested here! Good points, made the teaser definitely more streamlined and actiony!

Leave away “THE BADASS LADY FROM THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON”

1.) Do you think they fit the style?

No, in my opinion it is too much to read and you blow away the audience anyway with the Apple 1984 reference. Leave away the text. People are bad at multi-tasking and should not concentrate on 3 relevant inputs (movie, text, audio). Skip the text “THE BADASS LADY FROM THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON”. Please.
I also suggest to move the text “Obi Washington” to the scene where she describes the character herself (and maybe mix with her actress name)

2.) What (if any) image do you get about Obi as a character from the video?

Mixed. First, the woman gets introduced as a badass – but then she talks to her mother about “…not being able … without help” which kind of destroys the picture of her.

3.) Do you have any suggestions how to make the texts better?

Don’t do any texts. I agree with others, not to use the word “badass”. Her character already has a very strong presence on the screen with the Apple 1984 reference.

Last but not least: The cut at the interview around 0:29-0:30 gives me eye cancer.
