Festival Sales Trailers

We recently produced a host of sales trailers for films still in production or post production for our friends at Kaleidoscope Film Distribution. These often form the basis of a traditional trailer but are also crafted for sales use, and are edited from unfinished footage. In some cases they are more akin to sizzle reels or promos – whatever our client requires to sell their movie.

Kaleidoscope Film Distribution (KFD) is an established International Sales company, specialising in commercial feature films and branded documentaries.

New titles include the highly anticipated adaptation of smash-hit musical, Tomorrow Morning, featuring star of new West End production, Frozen the Musical, Samantha Barks, The X Factor runner up Fleur East, British comedian Omid Djalili, and Dame Joan Collins; The Official Tubular Bells 50th Anniversary Documentary and Live Show, celebrating 50 years of Mike Oldfield’s iconic album; action-packed epic The Siege of Robin Hood bringing the legend to life for a new era.

Fadia’s Tree

Official trailer for Fadia’s Tree.

We were commissioned by Susan Simnett, producer at Over The Fence Films to create the trailer for visual artist Sarah Beddington’s feature documentary.

‘While millions of birds migrate freely in the skies, a Palestinian refugee in Lebanon, yearns for the ancestral homeland she’s denied. She sets a challenge to find an ancient tree that stands as witness to her family’s existence – guided only by inherited memories, a blind man and a two-headed dragon. This story of a 15-year friendship that stays connected across a divided land and a fragmented people, adopts a bird’s eye perspective to reflect on freedom of movement, exile, and the hope of return.’

Fadia’s Tree is screening November 27 at the Curzon Soho.

Fadia’s Tree

GVFilm was recently commissioned by Over The Fence Films to create a trailer for the poignant documentary ‘Fadia’s Tree’. Fadia, a Palestinian refugee in Lebanon, is stranded by history on the wrong side of the border. When a chance meeting introduces her to the director, Sarah, she makes a grand and personal request: to find the ancient mulberry tree next to her grandfather’s house in Sa’sa, northern Palestine. A mere 2 hour drive from Beirut where she lives, Fadia is barred from crossing that border. With only received memories, a blind man and a two-headed dragon as her guides, Sarah embarks on the quest to find the tree. Along the way, as she observes the homing instincts of millions of migrating birds, nature inadvertently reveals instinctive elements of the Palestinian yearn to return home. Through a birds’ eye perspective, we reflect on freedom of movement, exile and return and a sense of hope projected by the land itself. Fadia’s Tree is a remarkably warm debut feature film by artist, Sarah Beddington, and a heartfelt rumination on the nature of belonging.
Fadia’s Tree is showing Saturday November 27 at the Curzon Soho, Shaftesbury Avenue as part of the London Palestine Film Festival.

Spitfire Over Berlin

At GVFilm we have a long history of creating trailers and sizzle reels for film markets such as Cannes and AFM. In many cases films may still be in production, and we are tasked with creating effective content with limited footage, time and budget.
Often these trailers will go on to become the Official trailer when we complete with scheduled deliverables and versions for Theatrical / TV / OTT Platforms.
For Spitfire Over Berlin we worked closely with Kaleidoscope Film Distribution and Tin Hat Films to edit this exciting introduction to the soon to be released WW2 adventure.

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.
