Icon Film Channel

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 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.

Habit

The Movie Partnership called on GVFilm’s expertise to create a UK digital trailer re-version for this exciting, hard hitting thriller. We were tasked with keeping the feel of the film intact while making numerous censor and technical edits for OTT delivery.

OTT Trailer Re-editing and creation

Demand for digital content is at an all time high, and the pandemic has seen distributors and service providers scramble to update platforms with catalogue titles. But often the trailers provided (even from just a few years ago) may not be suitable for use, either because of technical specifications or content. At GVFilm we have years of experience in quickly and economically re-editing and re-branding trailers to platform specifications ready for delivery.
Sometimes trailers just may not be suitable at all, and we pride ourselves on scripting, editing and producing original trailers for re-releases.
