Someone online edited a new trailer for The Shining with new music and snippets from the movie. It’s brilliant.
Oh, that’s fuckin’ awesome.
I never figured that a change in music was all Kubrick needed to make an upbeat, feel-good film.
That’s the first time I’ve been whooshed by a movie trailer.
I’m not sure I get it, but it’d ruin the joke if someone explained it to me, so I won’t ask.
Oh. Okay. Now I get it. :smack:
SolGrundy. That was simply teriffic. Seriously. I’m still laughing.
Bumping. And if a mod could close this thread, that’d be cool.
Best laugh I’ve had all week!
Oh, the wacky hijinks…
That was crazy-good. I’d love to see the faces of the people when they leave the theater.
That’s how they should make all trailers. The possibilities! Schindler’s List as a wacky buddy picture; Jaws as a funny romantic comedy; Dumb and Dumber as a . . . well, anyway.
[hijack]I really enjoy fake movie trailers for some odd reason --usually these are for movies that will never be made of fan releases of trailers of upcoming movies. The idea of editing a movie to come up with a trailer to reflect an entirely genre than one the movie’s actually in is hellaciously clever to me.
It’s like taking excerpts from Lord of The Rings to make a road trip sexcapade comedy trailer or Animal House and making it seem like a serious academic drama or editing the Freddy Krueger movies until you make it seem like it’s a Matrix sequel or something.
A similar trailer I saw once edited an episode of Voyager using Tuvok as a rapper.[/hijack]
It’s the Feel Good Movie of the year!
How in the world did you find that? That was just fantastic!
In my stupid duplicate thread, posted before I saw this one, I said:
Worth thinking about, certainly. This trailer is an excellent demonstration.
What kinds of equipment do you need to re-edit something like this? I assumed the person responsible had a DVD of The Shining, a few sound files, including a sound file of Peter Gabriel’s “Salisbury Hill”, and the new narration. What kind of program do you use to edit this?
Here’s West Side Story as a horror movie (with just a little bit of digital tweaking). Very funny.
