To get film buffs all jollied up for the Seattle International Film festival we created a mind-bending, frenetic, thrill ride of a trailer urging viewers to “Take a vacation from themselves.” And many of them did, as it was the most attended festival to date.
BTW - We used 63 films in this trailer. If you can name them all then I’ll buy you a puppy (or any domesticated animal of your choice, within reason).
These "bumpers" ran before films during the festival. The intent was to "Calibrate the audience" for the intense film experience they were about to view. We used the theater's surround sound and massive screens to create audio/visual illusions giving the audience the full-4D experience while preparing their eyes, ears, hearts and mind.
