The Price is Right

Our graphics team recently finished a book trailer for Eduardo Porter’s new book “The Price of Everything”. Business journalist and New York Times editorial writer Porter delivers a popular explication of how supply and demand affect prices. A fascinating topic for the times we’re in.

Creative Director Curt Cooper spearheaded this project, supported by Motion Designers Kyle Shoup, Jenn Moody, Jamin Clutcher and Jesse Willis. Special thanks go out to our friends at Sponge and Earhole Music for the collaboration.

“Working on this project,” Curt says “was really a sign of our times.  Five years ago, you would never have seen an animated trailer/commercial for a book release.  With the diversity of advertising today, and the digital age of paperbacks becoming ipads, it’s an exciting time for creativity to flourish into new and exciting avenues.”

And why not? Why should movies and upcoming tv episodes get all the fun and hype? Books are a form of entertainment and media too long forgotten. Bravo, team!

Check this link out to view another book trailer we did for Bat Boy not too long ago for Weekly World News CEO’s book on the elusive urban legend.

“Burning Ice” Ignites and Inspires

Anna Patel recently edited a trailer for new eco-revolutionary film “Burning Ice“, which documents 40 musicians, writers and artists as they embark on a 9 day journey off the coast of Greenland with the artist -led climate change project, Cape Farewell.

The film was directed by legendary director Peter Gilbert. If the end music track on this trailer sounds familiar, it’s because it’s an acoustic rendering of KT Tunstall’s new hit which dropped yesterday, “Uummannaq Song“.

The trailer is absolutely visually stunning and features music by the artists involved directly with the film. It is not to be missed if you are an eco-adventurer, nature lover or simply a concerned citizen of the world that wants it to be around long after you’re gone. Well done, Anna!

About Face!

Anna Patel recently cut a trailer for Music Box Films for German film North Face. The film depicts the fatal, attempted first ascent of the Eiger north face in 1936.

The trailer can be viewed this week on Apple’s trailer page and on HULU!! Check it out!

The trailer features a score by Elliot Hunt and Daniel Alcheh and was co-mixed by our own Ryan Pribyl, who also did all the sound design!

Moore Is Our Champion

Senior Assistant Editor, Suzie Moore, recently submitted a piece to the Splice Capades and placed as First runner up! If you are not familiar, Splice Capades is an annual competition in which assistant editors show off their editing chops by “splicing” two different films together to create a :90 trailer! This year’s mash-up featured the films “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy” and “Network”.

Suzie says of the experience, “I just love Steve Carrell so when I watched the movies I knew I wanted to do something funny with him as the main character. It was a lot of fun to put together. As first runner up I won a blu-ray player!” Her trailer is absolutely hilarious, so be sure to check it out at the link above!!

There were 25 entries from assistants in Chicago. We’re proud of Suzie every day – this is just “splicing” on the cake!
