Making a New Trailer

Now that the flick is nearly complete, it seemed like a good time to generate some more buzz. We figure that the better our numbers are in terms of facebook fans and trailer views, the better the film will look to film festival programmers and potential distributors.

Hopefully we will get the same kind of viral effect that we got with our first trailer back in December, with bloggers around the world posting it on their geek, movie, and horror related sites.

I plan on sharing the youtube link (rather than vimeo), so it should go up in views much faster. Our last trailer would not upload to youtube properly for some reason and the audio was out of sync no matter what I did. And yet, the youtube version got more views than vimeo, even though we weren't actively promoting it. With any luck it will upload correctly this time and with the help of our fans we can make it explode all over the interwebs.

This trailer will focus more on the action of Ninja Zombies, rather than the horror or comedy. (or bromance) For inspiration I looked to the first teaser for Sucker Punch. Say what you will about the movie, but that teaser was badass. I especially love the way it used jump cuts in time to the music.

So when will I finally post this new trailer? Don't worry, you won't have to wait long...
