Grim Fandango Trailer Sound Replacement

Hello LucasForums!

I am a student at a digital arts college, and I recently took a class in which we had to take a video game trailer and replace all of the audio with our own content. So, that means complete dialogue replacement, write our own music, make our own sound FX, the works.

So, naturally, I chose to do the trailer for Grim Fandango. Please let me know what you think:

http://vimeo.com/8776108 (or http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sCEArAeiy28 if you prefer YouTube to Vimeo)

A few notes:

- The minimum project length was 3 minutes; I added part of the opening scene of the game to the trailer in order to stretch it out.
- To continue the "trailer" feel, I added a green preview card at the beginning; I also added a credits card at the end to list all 9 (!) voice actors that I had for the trailer.
- I go back and forth on the narration I used in the video (which is my own voice, played out of an iPhone into a microphone) on whether or not I should have included it. Pretty much everyone who saw it liked it, so I kept it.

Please let me know what you think. Thanks!
