Trailer for my 2008 short film The Ninja Always Rings Once (stoicpictures.com/the-ninja/). The trailer reflects the style of the film, which is a throwback to low-budget action movies of the 1980s, specifically the ninja movies of The Cannon Group.
Technical notes: The old look of the video was achieved through a combination of analogue VHS static, compressor settings and filters. I shot this original movie on Super-16mm film back in 2004-2005 and telecine'd before Final Cut Pro could edit in HD, so despite the high quality of the original negative, the video I had to work with was standard definition at best. The titles are a combination of Photoshop, FCP key-frame work, and some good old-fashioned analogue VHS static, but the STOIC logo and feature title screen are After Effects.
