You cannot export from iPhoto in this manner. It exports no video. Navigate to the video in iPhoto, go to Find > Reveal in Finder > Original File. Not the modified, the original. This video should play in quicktime as a .mov, no? If not, test with another video player such as VLC to isolate the problem.

AM I missing a step?
Difficult to guess since you have not actually indicated how you "exported" the movie—as an image, as a copy of the original file, etc.
Still no data to be seen using QUICKTIME and EDIT/TRIM. The file is blank.
What does this mean? Are you getting a message? If so, what is the message? Is the file failing to open at all or does it open but only contain a single frame? Does the original file open in the QT player like your secondary test file? Can you "drag 'n drop" the iPhoto library video icon directly to the QT player app? If you use the Finder to duplicate the file, does the duplicate file open normally? What kind of data does the file contain and which QT player are you using to edit and trim the file?
Basically, you have presented little more than a minimum information question. Without more details it is impossible to say if your problem is in your work flow, the iPhoto application, the OS configuration, or the operating system itself.iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.4), 3.4 GHz Quad Core i7, 12GB 1333 MHz
