Icon UK Film Channel Trailer

Created for our friends at Icon Film Distribution, we were asked to create this trailer for online promotion of the new Icon Film Channel available on a host of apps and platforms.
Packed into 30 seconds is a brief to show not only the breadth and depth of films on offer, but also to narrate the personality of the channel in a busy marketplace.

Icon UK Film Channel OTT Trailers

A new round of trailers in early 2021 for the Icon label.
To get catalogue trailers delivered to OTT services can often require ‘invisible’ editing. Cutting for modern all – ages viewing, localising legal, video formats and ratios, audio levels and re-formatting or replacing titles and graphics for a new distributor.

Muse Of Fire

MUSE OF FIRE is an 83-minute feature documentary produced by actors Giles Terera (Hamilton) and Dan Poole (Dungeons & Dragons), (Peterloo) in 2013. At GVFilm we helped sculpt the narrative via sizzle reels and sales trailers, before assisting in the edit of the film and a special BBC version – as well as also providing Trailers and promotional material. To this day it is still racking up new international sales across a huge variety of formats.
It is a testament to creating materials that will sell a film and can be delivered to global platforms.

Icon Film Channel

GV Film were commissioned to polish trailer assets from Icon’s vast library for 2021 OTT distribution which included updating PAL and NTSC assets to HD, censor cuts and new graphic elements. Titles included Austin Powers International Man Of Mystery, Mullholland Falls, The Getaway and Enigma.

We also created a few original trailers when assets were not available such as for the blockbuster 90’s thriller ‘Shattered’.

Every film on The Icon Film Channel is handpicked to deliver a special cinematic experience.  Often award-winning, frequently critically acclaimed, but always memorable, you will be taken on a journey of pure thrill and delight.

The Space Theatre Of Survival on SKY Arts

We have been involved in the making and promotion of this documentary for a long time and it is gratifying to see it making its way to UK TV screens on SKY Arts and we congratulate our friends at Timebomb Pictures.

“In 1972 at the height of the apartheid struggle in South Africa, a group of artists risked everything to build a safe space dedicated to all freedoms—artistic, social and political. ‘The Space’, born from the unremitting efforts of the government to silence all opposition, became the ‘Theatre of Survival’ for the voices of all artists – a place where, no matter the colour of their skin, they could be seen and heard. The groundbreaking work of these artists reverberated worldwide at a time when the price of their artistic freedom was incarceration or worse. Featuring Athol Fugard (the most performed playwright in the world after Shakespeare), Tony award-winners John Kani and Winston Ntshona, satirist Pieter-Dirk Uys, Academy Award winner Richard E. Grant, and many more, The Space is the definitive record of the Cape Town theatre with a mission to oppose Apartheid and champion freedom of expression.”
