I think no matter how happy a person is in a specific career, they always aspire to be something else. I am so incredibly happy to be a graphic designer, but over the past couple years I have found a whole new passion within myself... Movie Trailers! You know, like Cameron Diaz' character in Love Actually. This may sound weird, but I think this would be my "dream job" . I find myself continuously getting obsessed with certain movie trailers (all of the dramatic ones of course) and I play them over in my head and think about what I like and don't like and what I would maybe do differently. Or when I hear a song on the radio, some of my first thoughts are, "oh this song would be so good for a trailer of this movie..." I took a mixed media class once in college and I loved one of our projects were we got to use digital media and create our own music video. I actually put more effort into that project than most of my others.
so even though I am currently living part of my dream, at night, I tend to dream of trailers...
Ok, so to give you a taste of what I am talking about, here are two of my most current trailer obsessions:
Social Network: Not only do I love this trailer, but it is also spot on on conveying the feeling of the movie (I saw the movie and actually really liked it and the whole mood of it was just like the trailer. I really dislike it when trailers trick you into thinking a movie is something it isn't.
And of course, this trailer:
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: I am a little biased because I am already obsessed with these books and movies, but honestly this trailer is just so exciting to watch and it looks action packed!
Tell me some of your favorite trailers out there!
