Well, I’ve seen it all folks!
This might be the funniest trailer I’ve seen in a while, one that completely fooled me into thinking it could be a real movie (at least for the first minute of a 3 minute video). Who knew these amateurs could start to look so professional? Not that I would know anything about being an amateur….
Just saying tho, going pro is kinda hard. (And yes, I’m looking for freelance writers for this site. Feel free to email a sample!)
This trailer really sums up one weerd as year. And yes, I spelled weerd wrong. I like my way of spelling it better. Probably will save an immigrant’s life one day!
But the real question is, was 2016 really a horror story? Or was it a comedy? Starts to feel a little too much like a David Lynch film… which is what this trailer is not. Not that that is a bad thing or anything.
The editing is a little obvious, just a few flash cuts mixed with a strobing light to create a sense of urgency and danger. And don’t get me started on the use of a serious song by a child in a slower tempo. Just so obvious.
And yet the obviousness is the point. This is a parody of film trailers, presented with a backdrop of one weerd ass year that probably made a few people shake their heads in disbelief….
Maybe even weerd enough to convince them that this could be a film. (Not that I’d watch it or anything.)
THO I TOTALLY WOULD!
I want to see Trump as a bad guy in a slasher film! And I want to see the cute girl get her head sliced off! And why does this film have men with beards???? Men with beards don’t exist in movies! They might even have potbellies! Or even be hipsters!
Man, this should be a film!
AND YES, I WOULD TOTALLY SEE IT!
But that’s just the opinion of an amateur, shouting out to fellow amateur filmmakers trying to make it big. Send me your work and I’ll review it, even if it was made in a backyard. And we’ll tell these pros one thing.
We can do it better!
(Tho I’ll totally watch their work too. Maybe even review it!)
