Homage Trailers Are The New Party Game

By Ted Hope

Start guessing what movie Eddie Burns is now playing homage too here:

Last one to guess, drinks the beer. Or is it the first one to guess, gets it. Either way Eddie has shown one easy answer on how to get people aware of your film in a new fun way.  Imagine if there was a website where filmmakers placed their homages and it was up to the audience to guess the original.  It would be a party game and a discovery tool all in one.

    Sorry, Ted. I just don't really understand what you're getting at with these posts.

    At this point, my awareness of this film is limited to “Oh, that's that ugly-looking Ed Burns movie with all the gimmicky trailers. I didn't realize people were still willing to fund his movies.”

    Considering how often you batter home the point that we're failing to get young people interested in independent cinema, I can't see what fake trailers based on movies most people haven't seen or even have much of an awareness of is doing for this project. These trailers are an in-joke pitched at the 1% of the 1% of the 1% who are already in the know — and those people aren't the ones who need to have independent films sold to them. Which is why they have about 500 views a piece.

    BB, i agree. why would anyone, except the “cool kids”, care about this? the movie looks quite dull and the trailers seem nothing more than a gimmick.
