Eternal Sunshine of the spotless mind Teaser trailer Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind is a Film based on the idea of removing memories, Which is reflected in some of the techniques used in certain parts of the trailer. Reasons why I like this trailer:
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
The medical images in advert make it seem like a plausible idea a viewer may even think its realistic. The movement of the shots in the ‘advert’ of the doctor. The doctor from the advert is the person whois involved with the main character. Squares on the screen when character begins treatment Very fast jump cuts between shots create the effect of memories. Shot of Kate Winslet and Jim Carey running through the station with the people disappearing- the idea of losing memories.
Kick ass Teaser trailer Reasons why I like this trailer:
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’
The music that builds up to the jump, typical theatrical music; seems intentional Low angle shot of man falling downwards ‘towards’ the camera ‘comic book style’ titles as the film is based on a comic Music change during the action scenes Introduction of main characters through comic titles Social realism element through the city setting
Scott Pilgrim Vs the world Teaser trailer Reasons why I like this trailer:
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’
Exaggerated sound effects during fighting scenes Some parts of the fighting sequences are slowed down to make a slightly comic style Similar to kick ass, this film is based on a comic book which is enhanced through the titles The snow scene is also used to reveal titles during the beginning sequences The general genre and target audience is revealed through the comedy effects and music.
Sean of the dead Teaser trailer Reasons why I like this trailer;
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.
Alarm sound added in during the public announcement; tension building Public announcement adds social realism Fade out between shots 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’ One minute onwards the cuts are faster matching the music change adding action feeling to it
Requiem for a dream Teaser trailer Reasons why I like this trailer:
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
Dialogue from one of the characters overlaying the visuals The tv frequency noise at the beginning of trailer- creates an eerie mood immediately indicating theme Random noise effects such as car braking, till noises and a person. Unusual backing music Shots of camera head on to a person moving as they do The same tv frequency noise used at the end, in a hospital scene makes it sound like a flat line on a heart monitor
