Hi Internets! I am the creator of the fake trailer Titanic: Two the Surface that you may have seen on You Tube a few years ago.
I have just completed a new fake trailer for the sequel to E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial. I´ve been working on it for a while and like Titanic, it took endless hours of sifting through movies and trying to paste a story together from clips that I found. I can´t tell you exactly how many movies I researched (hundreds), but I can tell you that I ended up using clips from 33 movies along with 11 shots that I had to shoot myself in order to create the trailer. Out of the 115 shots in the trailer, there are 80 effects shots ranging from simple (adding ships to the background) to difficult (animating a talking ET).
I have posted a few videos detailing how I created some of the shots on my YouTube page. Also, if you have any questions about either of the trailers, feel free to e-mail me.
Both trailers are available to download for free. I am not profiting from this work in any way. Feel free to save a copy and share it with your friends. Both trailers are also available to view and share on YouTube. Thanks again for taking interest in my work.
