GV Film were recently commissioned by retro entertainment site GamesYouLoved to produce a book trailer for the retrogaming focused crime thriller ‘GAME OVER’, a new multi-media collaboration funded on Kickstarter.
Features a foreword by genre legend Ian Livingstone and cover artwork by 200AD and Judge Dredd artist PJ Holden.
“Not by any means for the faint of heart, Cosmos is nonetheless a juddering cloudburst of pure visual and aural energy, a rare instance of deep intellectual enquiry buoyed by unexpected jolts of pulsing emotion.”
It was a great trailer to make for a great film, released theatrically by Arrow Films / Arrow Academy.
GVFilm were commissioned by Arrow Films to create the Official UK trailer for Army Of One starring Nicolas Cage.
We created new animated UK graphics and oversaw deliverables of the localized version.
ARMY OF ONE is the (mostly) true story of Gary Faulkner (Nicolas Cage), an ex-con, unemployed handyman, and modern day Don Quixote who sets out on the unlikeliest of missions. Armed only with a Samurai sword, purchased from a home-shopping network, and the belief that he is following the express command of God (Russell Brand), he travels to Pakistan in order to capture Osama Bin Laden and bring him to justice. Gary’s is joined on his journey by old friends back home in Colorado, new friends he makes in Pakistan, and some new enemies he makes at the CIA, as well as God and Osama themselves – who all can’t help but be inspired and forever changed by coming in contact with such a force of nature as Gary.
When GVFilm were commissioned to edit a trailer for the the iconic gangster film’s 35th Anniversary re-release in cinemas, we were determined to make a modern trailer but honour the film’s classic status. As well as the edit and graphics we produced the explosive surround mix and added new music and hope it is a fitting tribute to the late Bob Hoskins. The film is newly restored from a 2K negative and in UK Cinemas in June 2015.
After the success of the ‘Rainbow Magic’ books. Orchard turned to GVFilm to advertise the release of Daisy Meadow’s latest book series ‘Magic Animal Friends’.
We scripted and animated the TV spot, giving it a sprightly mix and charming voice over courtesy of GVFilm friend, actress Sandy Foster who can be seen in Mike Leigh’s Palm d’Or nominated film ‘Mr Turner’.
For the Orchard Books release of the novel, Boy Nobody by Allen Zadoff, GVFilm were asked to create a fast paced, thrilling trailer to appeal to young adult readers, but without giving away too much of the mysterious and surprisingly hard edged story of a teenage assassin.
We scripted, filmed, directed and scored the book trailer, which is part of a wider campaign planned with PR agency Fetch Publicity and stars actor Tom Clarke Hill, (Batman: Arkham City, Sniper Elite) and features model and presenter Lora Leigh (Metal Hammer, Front Magazine).
Boy Nobody is the first in a planned series and the film rights have already been optioned by Sony Pictures with Jayden Smith in the frame as the title character.
We are excited to reveal the UK trailer for ‘The Dark’. The new children’s book by acclaimed author Lemony Snickert and illustrated by Jon Klassen.
