This is a trailer I created for a client for the purposes of selling the film to a distributor. I was given carte blanche to make the best trailer possible. There was virtually no input on behalf of the production company, the producers or the marketing team. Their only request was: make it look amazing.

The process itself was a very laborious one. The production originally supplied me with dvd dallies (sans timecode) so I cut the trailer from there and then had to supply technicolor with an edit sheet detailing every shot that was used via the slate information at the top of every take. They then exported HD files that matched (not always) the takes I had used for my cut and re-spliced them in.

I'm very proud of the final product, given the time restraints.
