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.
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.
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.

Fifteen years before Stranger Things combined science fiction, Spielbergian touches and 80s nostalgia to much acclaim, Richard Kelly set the template – and the high-water mark – with his debut feature, Donnie Darko. Initially beset with distribution problems, it would slowly find its audience and emerge as arguably the first cult classic of the new millennium.
Donnie is a troubled high school student: in therapy, prone to sleepwalking and in possession of an imaginary friend, a six-foot rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world is going to end in 28 days, 06 hours, 42 minutes and 12 seconds. During that time he will navigate teenage life, narrowly avoid death in the form of a falling jet engine, follow Frank’s maladjusted instructions and try to maintain the space-time continuum.
Described by its director as “The Catcher in the Rye as told by Philip K. Dick”, Donnie Darko combines an eye-catching, eclectic cast – pre-stardom Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, heartthrob Patrick Swayze, former child star Drew Barrymore, Oscar nominees Mary McDonnell and Katharine Ross, and television favourite Noah Wyle – and an evocative soundtrack of 80s classics by Echo and the Bunnymen, Tears for Fears and Duran Duran. This brand-new 4K restoration, carried out exclusively for this release by Arrow Films, allows a modern classic to finally receive the home video treatment it deserves.
GVFilm created a newly re-vamped trailer and social media spots for the 4K UHD release.
