This is the trailer for an upcoming six-part mini-series called "Star Wars: Dawn of War". Now I'm lead to believe that this has nothing to do with the popular game based on the Warhammer 40,000 universe, so sorry if anyone got their hopes up on that. In any case, this is one of those short types of trailers -- just over one minute long -- that doesn't provide much of a hint as to what the real video will be about. The read-me, while giving a long description, also doesn't give much of a hint, other than that it's meant to combine Star Wars and the popular show 24 as far as the style of the six videos goes.
Forty megabytes for a one-minute trailer is a little excessive (the author may want to look into the DivX codec to compress larger videos in the future), but the trailer isn't too bad so if the premise sounds interesting I encourage you to give it a look and see if it might be something you're interested in when the final videos come our way.

DESCRIPTION: Star Wars: Dawn of War (Trailer/Preview) is the trailer/preview to the first episode of my six-part JKA Mini-Series. BUGS: None that I know of. COMMENTS: This is the trailer/preview to "Dawn of War", which is the first of a six-part JKA Mini-Series I have written, filmed and produced entirely on my own. For almost the entirety of 2007 I had been obsessed with a bunch of storylines, characters and ideas that I thought might create an enthralling movie series, but due to other commitments I was unable to work on it. I finally decided late last year that I would start slogging it out to get this movie made. My JKA Mini-Series is comprised of six episodes of ten (approximately) minute each that will tell an epic saga of galactic conflict and the role that one man will play in its resolution. This JKA Mini-Series seeks to avoid Star Wars cliches and is instead a cross between Star Wars and 24. Although Star Wars elements feature prominently in its settings and characters, the storyline in the upcoming movie and the remaining five episodes will be unique, both in its storyline and execution. As for this trailer/preview, I thoroughly enjoyed creating it, but I did put in a special effort to ensure that the size of the trailer file was manageable for you guys (and girls) out there. I did however reach a point at around 40-45 MB where if I reduced the file size any more, it significantly reduced the quality. As it is, I've focused more on achieving a good file size than brilliant quality, which I feel is something (as a viewer myself) does appreciate more. Lastly, the voice-over int his traileris a placeholder because the voice-actor who will be doing that voice had bronchitis. I hope you guys enjoy this trailer and please keep an eye out for the release of Star Wars: Dawn of War coming to a download mirror near you sometime in March.
