Take your favorite movie trailer and mash it up with a different trailer to completely change the meaning of the original trailer. For example, if you have a funny movie trailer, give it the sound of a terrifying movie; or vice versa. You may need to clip the audio or the visual, use imovie and audacity to cut the clips to give you what you need. Good luck!
This is a 4 star assignment
Before starting this assignment I reviewed two other examples that helped me get an example of what I needed to do.
Toy Story 3 Horror Recut Trailer: I am reviewing this because I love all the Toy Story movies. I really liked this mash-up for the movie. The music and the editing of the clips made it seem like this movie would be really scary. Though this trailer was really good it reminded me more of the assignment Return to the Silent Era.
A Different Interpretation: I decided to review this assignment because I love all the Harry Potter movies. I really liked how this mash up included two different Harry Potter films. I like how one of them was used just for the music and background of the movie, and one for the actual video part of the movie trailer. Though not everything went well together with what was happening in the movie, I liked how there was a mash-up of two films from the same series. It was a very creative idea.
After reviewing these two examples and a few of the other ones I found under the assignment, I decided to make a mash up of the movie Up and the movie the Avengers. I thought that these two movie choices were very different and I think that is what a mash up is supposed to be. Combing two very different genres of movies to make it look like one. I decided to keep the movie trailer for the movie Up and use the background music from the Avengers. I first found the movie trailer for Up on YouTube and downloaded it to my computer using PwnYouTube. After that I then found the movie trailer for The Avengers and converted it to an MP3 file using Pwn YouTube. To convert the file to MP3 using PwnYouTube I clicked on the link that said share/mp3/convert. I then followed the instructions that were given to convert my video file into an MP3 file. Afterwards I then opened up Window’s Movie Maker and added the Up movie trailer and the Avengers sound. Though not everything matches up with what is happening in the movie trailer I think these two trailers mashed-up go well together. This mash-up gives the movie Up a new meaning, making it seem like there’s more action and adventure to the movie.
