Assignment:
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.

Now I love The Last Samurai. It is beyond a doubt the most ridiculous movie I have ever seen. Let me try to sum it up for you, Tom Cruise, according to Wikipedia is a a Civil War and Indian Wars veteran who agrees to help the new Meiji Restoration government train its first Western-style conscript army for a hefty sum. During the army’s first battle he is captured by the samurai Katsumoto and taken to the village of Katsumoto’s son, where he soon becomes intrigued with the way of the samurai and decides to join them in their cause. His journal entries reveal his impressions about traditional Japanese culture, which almost immediately evolve to admiration.

Spoiler Alert: EVERY one in the Samurai army is slaughtered except for Tom Cruise

Now back to the project, soo I did a lot of brain storming and that was the main part of the assignment really. So I decided to swap a real Asian movie Mulan with the movie the Last Samurai. I think its really funny, and makes me happy.
