Shooting a grindhouse-style trailer

The overarching plan for Philrose Productions is to have several projects in the queue, ready to go. With the script for Lake Midnight completed, this summer we're turning our attention to shooting an updated promotional trailer for Mind Rip.

We'll be capturing new scenes to supplement our previous cemetery shoot, then cutting something in the style of drive-in/grindhouse trailers of the 70s and 80s.

I've been going through my own collection of trailers, looking for style influences. Below is a smattering of title cards I like for font styles and exploitation language. Yes, if you saw the Rodriguez/Tarantino feature Grindhouse, you saw some parodies of trailers like these.

I'll be posting more behind-the-scenes photos from this trailer project in the coming weeks. Check back soon for updates!
