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.
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.
