Super Trailer is SUPER

I can’t tell you how pleased I am with both the SUPER poster and trailer. Great work!

Declaration Of Interdependence

I have not yet seen Tiffany Shlain’s CONNECTED but this trailer alone should be the motto for all Truly Free Filmmakers. And it certainly gets me excited to see the film. How timely!

PS. Based on what Tiffany did with her short film, she has long been one of the Truly Free Film heroes.

“A New Experience In Motion Picture Eroticism”

They just don’t make them like they used to, eh? Watching trailers on the classics, truly makes me want the super power of time travel so I could return to a time when the first impression was devoid of camp. Still though, show this trailer for Antonioni’s L’Avventura in the theater today, and I would be at a screening tomorrow. Beautiful and sexy and black and white. What more do you need?

One question though, does anyone know what this piece of music is that plays underneath the voiceover?

“That Was A Good Trailer”

Film Forum showed this trailer before the restored print of METROPOLIS. When it was done, the nine year old young man next to me turned to me and said “That was a good trailer”. He knows of what he speaks. And thus how little we have traveled. Fifty years is the age of Godard’s BREATHLESS and it still feels fresh even to an innocent’s eyes. And for that matter, METROPOLIS totally stood up and got the approved stamp of “exciting” from both my son and his friend.

New Sundance Trailer

We’ve been trying to keep track of what films are really ready for this new version of Sundance (you know, the one that no longer is a sales market).  Variety has The Greatest up (hat tip: Filmmaker):

But my favorite trailer is John Water’s advice for Obama.  Check it out over at TheseAreThoseThings.

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
