Marketing Films with Movie Trailers

Any filmmaker will tell you that marketing a film takes hard work, a great design team and one heck of movie trailer. And one of the most enjoyable aspects of watching a film in theaters is the opportunity to see new trailers on the big screen. Getting that first look at a highly anticipated upcoming film can be a real thrill, but there’s more that goes into creating a great trailer than meets the eye. Trailer Editor Chris St. Pierre has ample experience in this arena, having edited trailers for Dark Shadows, the Harry Potter franchise, Troube with the Curve and many more films — and he knows all too well the effort that goes into creating an electrifying trailer experience.

ADR with Todd-AO’s Ron Bedrosian

Obtaining optimal sound quality while recording on set can be an arduous task for production sound mixers. Let’s face it, exploding bombs, rapid-fire machine guns, massive tanks and even spaceships can get obnoxiously loud — and they can create challenging sound problems on set. To resolve these issues, Automated Dialogue Replacement (ADR), or the process of re-recording dialogue in post to improve or clarify the diction of the actors, has become an essential part of film and TV production.

Utah’s Legislature approved a nationally competitive increase in the tax incentive for film makers that will boost the motion picture tax incentive from 20 to up to 25 percent of the dollars left in the state in the form of a fully refundable post performance tax credit or cash rebate. Governor Gary R. Herbert signed House Bill 99, Motion Picture Incentives Amendments, into law. The Legislature approved an ongoing tax credit fund of $6.8 million for the Motion Picture Incentive Fund (MPIF).

“Our vision for the State of Utah is to be recognized as a premiere global business destination,” said Governor Herbert. “The expanded motion picture incentive will enable us to position Utah and its talented motion picture and digital media work force to compete on a global basis for the film and digital media industries. These are important industries to our economy’s future.”
