What is a musical film?
A musical film has been defined as...
"A film genre in which songs sung by the characters are interwoven into
the narrative, sometimes accompanied by dancing. The songs usually
advance the plot or develop the film's characters, though in some
cases they serve merely as breaks in the storyline, often as elaborate
Genre conventions in a trailer
Video was not exported from SlideRocket
Song begins immediately, this tells the audience that music has a key
part in the film
Young people/teenagers are often main characters
Story is told through the musical numbers
Cheery/happy mood achieved through high key lighting/close ups of
Long shots so big cast of dancers
Could I produce a musical film
Producing a musical film trailer would be a very fun task, however, with
my film trailer not being able to use any form of copyrighted music I
would have to compose it myself, this may prove a challenging task as
I am not musically talented.
Casting this trailer would be the most challenging task in production as
I would need to find not only actors, but singers/dancers as well as
musicians who are willing to have their music used in my trailer.
