I cannot recall what class it was in, but sometime throughout my film and media studies we discussed “the art of making a trailer.”
In some cases its what you base seeing a picture on, right?
Now there are different trailers for different countries, of course. One has to cater to the market. So I was intrigued when looking at the trailer for CHE, the new Soderbergh film, and noticed the differences between the American trailer and the other International ones that are floating about. Of course the American one is a bit more epic and dramatic, and almost twice as long and given the subject matter, probably needed. Of the International ones that I viewed a lot were filled with block quotes and did not show very much action at all.
Anyway, I just found it interesting, really. Any trailers (recent or older) that have stuck out in your mind?
Can you tell I want to go back to school? Need more discussion and analyzing!
Thankfully, I am working on a few projects at the moment. One includes starting French classes soon. The other includes securing a studio place to work on a couple of projects I’ve been mulling over, and after taking with an old art friend I have said place. Hooray. And the other…well that’s only for those in the know.
One of the CHE trailers.
On an sidenote, but seeing as I used the word ‘trailer’ enough in this post…did anyone after viewing The Long Long Trailer, have a strong desire to own an airsteam? No, just me?
