How To Make a Professional Movie Trailer? Through this video essay, Filmmakers Fans explaining the suggestive tips and tricks to make a perfect movie trailer.
No matter how great a movie you produce, if the trailer isn’t wonderful enough, you would fail to draw audience to the theatre. So, here are some cool tips and tricks on how to make a perfect movie trailer:
- The first thing is to work on the music. Getting the right sound and flow can be really tough.
- Next is to grab few moments that carry the theme or emotion of the film. Then, work on few fast cuts which will help in pushing forward the film’s tone.
- An easy way to go through the entire trailer-making process is to see them as Act 1, 2, 3 and so on. For example, Act 1 can be the opening shot with mystery, tension and dialogue. Act 2 comes packed with all the action beats and exciting stuff with a few dialogues hinting at what’s in store for the audience. All this escalates to Act 3 which is the main explosive, climactic shot.
- After this, everything slams down to the title and ends with a final shot that again clues at the theme and tone.
And there you go! Your movie trailer is made.
