Project Challenge: The client wanted me to deliver a marketing trailer for the web series that would create local buzz and garner production funding. The challenge I faced as the Editor was that the script had not been completely filmed and there was a limited amount of scenes to create the trailer from.
Web series trailers are normally created to show the highlights of the season and often involve many different scenes and character arcs.
Solution: In order to deliver on this contract, I combed through the footage to find the best shots and most appropriate ordering of those shots to aid in character and plot development. I added visual effects and color grading to create a look for the piece that was appropriate to the audience.
The resulting trailer, exceeded my client's expectations and conveyed the mood of a dark drama for teens.
