Mini Movie Trailer

As I said in a previous post, most of “80s Braincells You Forgot About” has come together again to make our video story. This time it will be a narrative mini movie. We met and planned out everything, but we have not yet met up for filming as of the end of this week. So, for this trailer, I took advantage of the fact that I’m the “main” character.

This footage most likely won’t be used in our final movie, but I recorded it with my roommate based on the ideas my group had, so the clothes I’ll be wearing won’t be exactly the same.

iMovie has amazing templates for “Hollywood Style” movie trailers that I got to used to produce this. I used a template called “indie” because I thought it suited our tone! I recorded a whole punch of footage around campus and edited together. Unfortunately, I had to record all of this on an iPhone, so the formatting is messed up, but our actual movie will be shot with an actual camera.

Mini Movie Planning

My radio show group mostly reunited this week to launch our 80s inspired video story idea! We met up and planned everything we wanted the story to be. I don’t want to spoil too much, but it is about a college girl from 1989 who is sent to 2019!

We planned our set locations to be all on campus, and I will be Stephanie, the girl from the 80s. I already wear retro clothes fairly often so I already have my costume planned out.

One of the things I’m most excited about is we plan to do a few callbacks to other 80s films with our shots, themes, or objects. We get together this weekend to film, so we don’t have any footage to make a comprehensive plot summary or trailer, but we are very well organized!

Will Stephanie like 2019 too much to leave?
