Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
[Trailers] Solidifying Iron-Clad Opinions in 2:30 or Less
In a world where marketing is everything . . . in a time where getting advance word out is key . . . in a place where OMFG DID U SEE THE AVENGERS SHIT WOOOOOOOOOO
Ahem. Right, sorry. Trailers can move you off the fence from "meh" to "please take the cash from my wallet now" or to "I can't believe I ever considered seeing this pile of garbage". They can include music not in the movie, lines adjusted to remove swearing or to alter the perception of a scene, or - in some cases - entire sequences that you'll never see in the film (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, for example). They can even give you the idea that the film is a comedy or action film or romance when the end result is anything but. And in others, they will basically hand you the plot from start to finish - including twists, cameo appearances, and anything else that might get your ass into a seat on opening weekend.
But I still love the little bastards when they are done right. Case in point:
Bring them forth, my friends.
