Chronicle Trailer • This movie uses handy-cam technique. • Handy-cam techniques are shown in the trailer as the screen tearing and the timer on the screen are shown. • The trailer follows the trailer of a group of teenagers who have powers and are seen causing chaos and having fun • The music lends to the tone of trailer a lot as it changes from a light-hearted comedy to a drama.
ANALYSISConventions used:- Inclusion of title at the end of the trailer- Link to facebook/twitter- Montage of best bits from the filmWhat I liked:• The soundtrack lends to the tone• Handy-cam• Mystery
MAN OF STEEL TRAILER• A very short teaser trailer.• Uses a lot of establishing shots.• Voiceover used which tells the audience parts of the story without keeping the mystery.• The last 10 seconds show the big reveal of superman.• Uses a lot of text to establish the makers of big movies such as ‘From the creator of the BATMAN trilogy….’
ANALYSISConventions used:• Logo and Title screen at the end• Release Date• VoiceoverWhat I Liked:• Enigma• Teases the audience as there are no clear shots of Superman
THE BOURNE LEGACY TRAILER• The trailer is very mysterious.• Most of the frame is not filled with footage which again helps the mysterious tone of the trailer.• The final reveal of the character is shown and the colour fades from black and white to colour.• Then some very fast paced editing shows some action scenes.
ANALYSISConventions used:• Title Screen at the end• Voiceover• Release DateWhat I Liked:• Very mysterious tone• Big character reveal with colour editing
