The trailer for A Star is Born does an amazing job of creating a complete story arc which is both satisfying, indicates to the audience this is only a small part of the whole, and seamlessly weaves the song lyrics into the narrative.
The trailer for Astroneer is a very impressive look at the sort of custom made short-film style trailers which are possible to make in the medium of video games. It does a great job of mixing storytelling and teaching gameplay.
The trailer for the missing-person thriller Searching is a film told entirely through screens. Not only is it a great trailer, but the storytelling hurdles it faces are very similar to those for game trailers!
Simogo Games make some of the most impressive game trailers that I’ve ever seen, and they do it all by themselves! It’s not often that I look for inspiration to trailers made in-house by indie game developers, but I consistently find myself doing that with Simogo.
The trailer for Coffee and Cigarettes manages to be entertaining and engaging without using the typical three-act structure of a movie trailer. How do you make a trailer for an anthology of short stories?
The Trailer Trove is a look at my favorite trailers, and why I love them so much. This is my look at the trailer for the 1998 film "The Thin Red Line" which I describe as a sumptuous feast of a trailer!
