Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind <br />Teaser trailer <br />Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind is a <br />Film based on the idea of removing memories, <br />Which is reflected in some of the techniques used<br />in certain parts of the trailer. <br />Reasons why I like<br /> this trailer: <br /><ul><li>The use of the ‘advert’ for the main companyin the film makes viewers feel involved
The gridded screen which repeats appears like multiple television screens </li></li></ul><li>The medical images in advert make it seem like a plausible idea a viewer may even think its realistic. <br />The movement of the shots in the ‘advert’ of the doctor.<br />The doctor from the advert is the person whois involved with the main character.<br />Squares on the screen when character begins treatment<br />Very fast jump cuts between shots create the effect of memories. <br />Shot of Kate Winslet and Jim Carey running through the station with the people disappearing- the idea of losing memories. <br />
Kick ass <br />Teaser trailer <br />Reasons why I like<br /> this trailer:<br /><ul><li>The trailer begins with the main characternarrating a scene where a viewer thinks he is trying to ‘fly’ off a building
The use of high angle shot overlooking the street and crowd which gives the appearanceof danger and height.
The matching low angle shot thataccompanies this adding to ‘danger’</li></li></ul><li>The music that builds up to the jump, typical theatrical music; seems intentional <br />Low angle shot of man falling downwards ‘towards’ the camera<br />‘comic book style’ titles as the film is based on a comic<br />Music change during the action scenes<br />Introduction of main characters through comic titles <br />Social realism element through the city setting<br />
Scott Pilgrim Vs the world <br />Teaser trailer <br />Reasons why I like<br /> this trailer: <br /><ul><li>The split screen shot at the beginning
The way that two music tracks are used, at the begging a viewer would think it was just a romance but it then changes to more of an action.
The comic-book style wording in action e.g ‘whip’</li></li></ul><li>Exaggerated sound effects during fighting scenes<br />Some parts of the fighting sequences are slowed down to make a slightly comic style <br />Similar to kick ass, this film is based on a comic book which is enhanced through the titles <br />The snow scene is also used to reveal titles during the beginning sequences <br />The general genre and target audience is revealed through the comedy effects and music. <br />
Sean of the dead <br />Teaser trailer <br />Reasons why I like<br /> this trailer; <br /><ul><li>The tension building in the begging scene
The music slowly building up speed; adding tension
A viewer knows it’s got a horror theme from the title, so they expect something tohappen; this is exploited by holding the action until one minute in.
Comedy element from the titles…. ‘zom rom com’ gives an idea of the genre.</li></li></ul><li>Alarm sound added in during the public announcement; tension building<br />Public announcement adds social realism <br />Fade out between shots<br />The ‘zombie’ characters themselves are shown throughout the trailer during the tension building, so they are less scary and the filmseems a little more ‘comedy’<br />One minute onwards the cuts are faster matching the music change adding action feeling to it<br />
Requiem for a dream <br />Teaser trailer <br />Reasons why I like <br />this trailer:<br /><ul><li>The trailer begins with split shot of tablets and a woman counting them
It becomes clear the film is about drug use fromthe shots of dilating pupils and the fact that someshots are very random in theme i.e a game show
The fast paced cuts between shots; indication ofa drug theme
The plot is not given away but the trailer is so confusing a viewer would want to know what ishappening </li></li></ul><li>Dialogue from one of the characters overlaying the visuals<br />The tv frequency noise at the beginning of trailer- creates an eerie mood immediately indicating theme <br />Random noise effects such as car braking, till noises and a person. <br />Unusual backing music<br />Shots of camera head on to a person moving as they do<br />The same tv frequency noise used at the end, in a hospital scene makes it sound like a flat line on a heart monitor<br />
