Return To The Silent Era- Bond, James Bond.

Difficulty= 5 stars

The dawn of cinema had no audio; silent movies created an atmosphere with music and the use of cue cards. Take a 3-5 minute trailer of a modern movie and render it in the form os the silent era- convert to black and white, add effects to make it look antiquated, replace the audio with a musical sound track, and add title cards for the dialogue. As a prime example, see Silent Star Wars

For this assignment I was tasked with turning a modern-day movie trailer into a trailer that represents something from the “silent era”.  To do this I took the James Bond Skyfall trailer, made the video black and white, took out all of the original sound, mixed my own audio track combining the old school James Bond theme with Adele’s song, Skyfall.  This gave me my own track to put over the video.  I next added captions to the trailer to be like the caption cards in “silent era” films.  I thought that adding them to the trailer itself gave it more of a modern feel, while still representing the roots of the “silent era” films.
