“The Youngest One”: 2 trailers for 1 movie—by Jim Burt

Because music was such a big part of this film, I decided to make two separate trailers for it to present how music and cryptic images can have a huge impact on a film’s message. That said, I wanted to see what I could do with two separate genres: suspense and drama. As both trailers imply, the movie has quite a few things going on. For example, there is intense violence and vague detail in one trailer, while the other seems to have a touching story between a man and a young girl. More

Good news for “A Defiant Dude”

File this story under “Sometimes Nice Guys Finish First.”

Bo Muller-Moore has just received trademark certification for “eat more kale,” a phrase that he had popularized by silk screening it on T-shirts, bumper stickers, and other collaterals. His goal was to promote locally grown produce.

Muller-Moore’s effort seemed innocuous until Chik-fil-A sent Bo a Cease and Desist letter and legally blocked his trademark application at the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

In response to the Chick-fil-A attack, Muller-Moore teamed up with filmmaker James Lantz to begin work on a hilarious documentary about this battle over words. To gain attention and win allies, Lantz created a trailer for the not-yet-finished documentary. And that’s where the International Movie Trailer Festival comes in. The trailer won the Grand Prize in our 2012 competition. You can see it here.

We congratulate Bo, and we’re looking forward to seeing the completed documentary. Everyone is, except perhaps a certain billion dollar eatery.
