SlashFilm Reviews The Distortion Trailer

Posted in Filmmaking, Production with tags , , , , , , , on May 23, 2010 by Richard Diaz

To say I am a pig in slop is an understatement. And for those of you that may not know that is a very good thing as pigs love their slop. Not only was the trailer showed recently on the big screen at the Horror Society event Woman Of Horror II and I got to introduce it but now the trailer is reviewed by Christopher Stipp who reviews trailers at SlashFilm.com. Like me he loves movie trailers and I just love his pieces on them. So to have him review mine is such a huge thrill. It’s an honest review and he rightly points out a few flaws but has some of the nicest things to say about me which as a struggling filmmaker is like drinking from the Holy Grail and feeling young again.

A truly heartfelt thank you to Christopher and SlashFilm for this. Enough of my babbling. Go check it out!!

Distortion Teaser Trailer

Posted in Post Production, promotion with tags , , on November 30, 2008 by Richard Diaz

Here is the teaser trailer for ‘Distortion’. This is a teaser so there isn’t much footage. I did take that original idea and sort of do what I wanted. The opening though was supposed to be TV snow instead of a gray box but it killed the compression. I was getting 100MB files and it looked blocky and awful. It was trying too hard to read all of the little bits of “snow” so I had to dump it. Especially since this trailer is meant for the internet.

The full trailer made up entirely of footage, like a normal trailer, will be done in January. Though I probably won’t post it until after the premiere (assuming I can get it shown) at the Fangoria Weekend Of Horrors in Chicago in early March. For now here is the teaser!
