Comic Book Movies Love New York

Starting in the early 1930’s in New York City, the comic book industry was born, originally collecting previously printed newspaper strips. Within a few years, the medium had already evolved, as original material was in demand.  National Periodical Publications launched Detective Comics #1, in 1937, which was an immediate hit, but it was less than a year later when the company launched Action Comics #1, that the world was changed with the introduction of a new genre, the superhero.  The issue featured the first appearance of Superman, and the success of the character, directly led to the creation of the …

The History of New York as Seen By Martin Scorsese

New York is often considered to be the gateway city to the world; a high energy, globally influential center of art, culture, fashion and finance. In New York, art in not only respected, but treasured.

It’s a mecca for theatre, dance, television, film, music and museums. Many of the world’s greatest artists call it home. Among filmmakers, New York is often as much of a part of their films as the main character themself. And although directors such as Spike Lee, Woody Allen and Sidney Lumet have established their love for the city on film, one director continuously tells stories …

How a Pitch Video Can Help Sell a Project

The pitch. Everyone talks about pitching projects, but what does that really mean?

Simply put, it’s when someone with an idea tries to sell it to someone, either an individual or business, with the money and/or resources to get it made.

In the entertainment industry, writers and directors pitch not only their own concepts, but also try to sell their creative talents on an already developed project that needs a vision to bring it to fruition.

As both time and technology change, so has the pitch itself. Once presented on paper with the occasional illustration, now pitches are presented in …

The Recut Trailer, or the Subtle Art of Editing

The art of editing is not only one of the most important aspects of filmmaking, but also one of the most powerful tools in telling a story.

Over the past decade, recut trailers have become a fascinating and entertaining way for editors to mashup either two or more films into one—or even better, re-editing and changing the actual tone of the trailer, completely reimagining it into a completely different genre.

Check out ten of our favorite trailer mashups.

The Special Shoot Trailer

It’s not uncommon for blockbuster movies to earn over $100 million at the box office, which means that the marketing of films is an essential, and oftentimes expensive, part of the equation.  With opening weekend dates carved out years in advance, audience awareness is essential, which is often why a “special shoot” trailer is produced.

Shot exclusively as a trailer and not featuring any footage from the film, “special shoot” trailers have one purpose: get people talking.  It’s not art—it’s making a product look attractive.  But why don’t we see more of them?  Well, apparently the MPAA has …
