“The Convention” Trailer- Re-Visit

Blast from the past!
This is a trailer from a plot based snowboarding movie I co-produced years ago with Sound Strait Productions.
Some good friends and I had formed a small production company in a quest to produce snowboarding videos the way we wanted.
We were all snowboarders who were working hard to try and be in other peoples videos that weren’t even turning out the way we liked, so we took it upon ourselves to produce our own. Boy was that stupid! :) – I kid, I joke.
No, it was a lot of fun. We would come up with these crazy loose plots and give everybody who was going to have a snowboarding segment in the video a role to play. We ended up getting really carried away a lot in trying to up the production value to make it seem like these high budget low budget films. When in reality we would end up meeting people or our friends would know people who could help us fulfill our imaginations, to an extent, with next to no money.
Not to mention we really had no idea what we were doing so we would just wing it the whole time. We called it “Ghetto Gorilla” style.
Shooting places with zero permission or permits. We would sometimes just go into someplace and ask who the manager was come back later and say that manager gave us permission to film and people would reluctantly let us do our thing, or we would just barge it.So we were usually in a hurry.
Our motto was, “Fix it in post”! We usually never had lines for people to say, we would just say move your mouth and we’ll dub it in later, or we would come up with lines on the fly.
Whatever it took to make it happen!.

“The Adventures of Captain Coyne”

This spot was part of an ad campaign run by Zumiezused to promote their “Couch Tour“, an annual summer tour where professional skateboarders and big bands put on demos and shows at some of their major stores at malls across America. It was mainly web based with the exception of 5 pieces that were chosen to air on FUEL TV as commercial spots promoting the tour.

There were a large number of spots for this campaign, I believe there was about 30 total. There was not much time alloted to come up with the entire concept,shoot and produce all 30 spots so we were really rushing through things. It’s amazing we were able to get it done. I would have liked more time but ultimately it was a great opportunity and we had fun doing it and most importantly Zumiez was happy in the end.

Bloody Mary Trailer

This is the “unofficial” movie trailer for the horror movie “Bloody Mary” which was produced by Kat Pictures.
The official trailer as well as all other info about the film can be found on the IMDB page here (imdb.com/title/tt0469684/).
I was asked by one of the Producers and DP on the film to cut together a trailer. After the Director saw it he basically flipped out on it I guess he didn’t like it. Since I really wasn’t involved with the film, I made no other attempts to edit another trailer.
Admittedly the titling is terrible (It was critiqued by a colleague of mine, he called it “kindergarten” :) but I like the cut.

Kind of Ed Wood-eske mixed with well a lot of styles or lack there of.
We were very Eclectic.
