Movie Trailers from Semester 1 Gr. 11 Comm-Tech
Evolving beyond its role as a mere marketing tool for the latest Hollywood epic, the movie trailer has taken on a life of its own in the streaming age. Whereas trailers stemming as far back at the 1920s were about selling the “grandeur” of film as a new technology and mode of storytelling, the trailers of today are epic short movies in their own right. Garnering attention world wide in minutes of their release online, movie trailers today have become part of the movie itself – an extension of story and style.
