This was the original trailer I cut for my final student film. Like the film, the trailer was heavily influenced by Cassavetes. I used close up stills to introduce the actors, often times using out of focus or grainy shots. In retrospect, it was pretty arrogant of me to put something like "The final student film by Stewart Schuster", as though anyone knew or cared who I was.
A little trivia- In the shot where Stephen gets hit, he really did get hit, by a real glass. The glass came out of Rachel's hand too early, and smacked him right on the side of the head.
