Fake It til You Make It: Shooting a fake movie trailer

Yes this is Fake It til You Make It time. We are making a fake movie trailer. Well, the trailer’s real; it’s the movie that doesn’t exist yet.

Below are a series of stills from the ‘fake’ sci fi/horror trailer shoot we shot last week.

As I’m sure you can tell, we had fun. From our behind-the-scenes shots, to our production still, to our picture of editing fun shown here, the actresses had great energy and were totally game! Michelle’s scream was blood-curdling.

Somewhere, Jamie Lee Curtis is screaming in sympathy…

And thanks To Andrew Munro and Jen Scott for the last minute and unexpected volunteer help.

Below Chris gives some unnatural direction to Emily’s ‘natural’ experience.
