The teaser should be confusing. In other words it should not reveal the story but just excite the audience with shots…….a dialogue with a one 5-10sec awesome captured shot of the movie or an important shot of the movie with 10 fast cuts of suspense or comedy or action with some infographics that is title animations with awesome background music makes a perfect teaser that really excites the audience to wait for the trailer and movie.
