As i am making a film trailer, i have had to come up with a name for the film which i am making the trailer for the name i have decided to create a poll to help me decide on which title will be most suitable and most appealing to people of a relevant audience.
There are different film genres the most common are Comedy, Horror, Action and Thrillers,
For an action trailer, like the one below we tend to see a lot of the special effects and the large explosions at some stage in the trailer. The trailer below has music in the background throughout the music increases in tempo as the action progresses. Action trailers seem mainly to consist of explosive scenes and fast paced fight/action scenes.
Comedy trailers seem to have a voiceover. The trailers also seem to include a selection of the films funniest moments this is in order to make viewers of the trailer believe the whole film will be as funny as the moments in the trailer.
Horror Trailers tend to show the main characters of the film and the evil thing which will hunt them down throughout the film. The trailer below has a quite slow tempo music which builds up in pace and tempo throughout the film. The scenes of get darker and more gloomier towards the end of the trailer. The trailer below uses titles to build up suspense and tension.
Thriller trailers are often very similar to action trailers. however thriller trailers tend to be all action whereas an action film/trailer tends to have comical moments. Thriller trailers are all action and they seemto constructthe mission which the hero or main character will have to undertake throughout the film.
I have decided to use a music track in the background of my trailer, as the music is relevant to the theme of the trailer as my trailer is golf-based and the music originates from the bbc golf-theme, therefore people who like sport, predominantly golf, will understand the significance and relevance of the music but other viewers of the trailer will like it as well as it has an upbeat tempo and i believe it fits in well with my trailer.
Also i have found/looked at other comedy trailers which use music in order to build up the tension and comedy in the film, but also with my trailer i plan to incorporate a voiceover and if you watch the happy gilmore trailer on my blog you can see the trailer contains both music and a voiceover. I intend to use the voiceover in my trailer to emphasize and build up to the funnier moments in my trailer.
Here are two film trailers which are of a similar storyline, and of a similar type to my proposed film trailer, as both of these trailers are created on golf based films. They are Happy Gilmore and Caddyshack, i am aiming to replicate some of the features of these trailers in my own film trailer.
This is another presentation produced by fellow classmates, this presentation was based on the Narrative aspect of media.
Another key concept for media is genre, and the above powerpoint was produced by some fellow classmates, but it is useful and relevant on the information for genres in film.
I have been advised to create a storyboard in order to help me plan the sequence for my trailer.
Whilst doing research for my trailer i came across this video and found it useful and relevant.
