Trailer for “The Second Chance”

Here it is! The trailer I made for Geoff and I’s documentary we’ll be making this coming week. We worked on both of ours at the HCC today to make sure we were both on the same page and to check each other’s work.

Geoff’s is super awesome!! 🙂

My trailer mostly focuses on Evelyn. It includes groups that she was in before reaching Washington, DC, by herself. She encounters a lot of the creatures, or zombies, that had been created due to the pandemic. Fortunately for her, she makes it to DC perfectly fine (the same can’t be said for the groups she had previously travelled with). The trailer also shows a bit of Fredericksburg and the rest of the world before disaster struck and during it. It includes videos from other people during bombings and their own travels.

Making this trailer was a bit of an adventure for me. I haven’t been feeling very well the past couple of days. It’s mostly due to allergies since Spring has arrived. Still, I was feeling pretty terrible today, so I wasn’t quite feeling it while making this. I was able to bear through it though and make this trailer. I used iMovie on the HCC computers using a Trailer template provided. I then used the 4K Video Downloader to find videos on YouTube to use in my trailer. Some of the videos used were found using CreativeCommons, but not all of them were. I made sure to leave a little note in the description of the video that they are not mine. The actual documentary we will be making will have mainly our own videos in it though. We hadn’t had anything prepared for our trailers though, so we had to make due with other videos.

It was a lot of fun though finding videos that would fit our storyline and our characters. We even came up with our own film production company name: A&G Films!

I think both of our trailers turned out really well, and I hope you like it! 🙂

  1. Hmm. . not feeling well? I’ve been under the weather too. Hope it’s nothing serious. . .

    Speaking of serious, movie trailers are seriously fun. Nice job collecting clips. I know it’s hard to make a trailer for a film you haven’t shot yet! I like that you included some video from campus and around town.
