Pop Culture: Film Trailers

Today we explore the underappreciated world of film trailers.

We'll explore a couple of articles and examples in the service of playing with film trailer design.

Both articles are on the Flight307 Pop Culture Pinterest board.

A Good Day to Die Hard was not a good movie.  But it makes a darn fine tool for learning how to edit a trailer.

We had talked about making a short film as a class; I would like to throw on the table a proposal that instead we make a film trailer.


Blog. 3+ Posts.
Curate. 2+ Pins.
Req'd Post.  Credit Roll of Your Life.  Imagine your life as a film.  Create the credit roll.  (It needn't be an actual scrolling piece of film -- though that would kinda neat as well.) Who would get credit? What sorts of jobs and roles would they get credit for?  What order would you put it in?

We'll do a little brainstorming in class to get these ideas cooking.
Due.  Friday, May 15th.
