This piece wasn't written for any specific piece of media, but I pictured it being used for a movie trailer. Let me know what you think!

Personally, it stopped sounding like a theme for a film trailer after the 0:33 minute mark. 

When doing trailers, I usually resort to an old school technique by layering instruments on top of one another to guide the listener. The beginning was fine but around the 0:33 mark, I think you should've introduced another instrument that would've indicated the introduction of the climax. 

As you introduce new sections, it is very effective if you keep something going from the previous section while adding something new on top of that. 

I love the sound quality, but it got tiring listening to the strings do the same thing throughout. 

This isn't bad though and I think with just a bit more work, you can definitely achieve something great here. 

Making the sound volume louder throughout doesn't equate to epic film trailer music, keeping the listener interested is. By layering not only do you raise the volume of the overall piece automatically but you also keep things refreshing and consistent.

I disagree with LostSamurai. It's a very interesting orchestral technique to have portions of the orchestra play, then all of them at the end... very Tchaikovsky. I, personally, think it works here, but I will conceded perhaps using a percussion track under it might have increased the intensity a little bit. As for repetition, yes, it's AA'(coda) form, and maybe one chord change or two could have propelled the drama further... maybe a VI or a v chord, otherwise, I can picture the type of trailer that would use repetition as a form of layering similar themes. In my experience with commercial music, that's an okay practice. It's so short, most of the similarities are fine, but I would try to push the envelope a little more the second time.
Cheers!

Hi I'm doing good, thanks for asking! I see what you and LostSamurai are saying and I'll definitely take you guys' advice into consideration. Thanks for your feedback!
