Trailer Remix Mash-ups

March 9, 2007

Mash-ups are using preexisting video footage to create something new, like remixing music or using photos to make a collage. Mash-ups are totally open ended and can be whatever you want to make out of it. Nonetheless, certain styles of mash-up have developed.

My favorite is the trailer “regenrefication” mash-up, or trailer remix, where footage from and existing movie is taken rearranged and made into a trailer of a completely different genre than the original motion picture.

Here are some of the noteworthy trailer mash-ups I found…

Must Love Jaws

10 Things I Hate About Commandments

Brokeback to the Future

The Ring: Recut

The Fast and the Curious

West Side Story: Redux

Mount Brokeback

Shining

Saw 3: Curse of the Were-Rabbit

Mel Gibson’s Signs (of Antisemitism)

…A bunch more trailer remixes can be found at iFilm’s Trailer Remixes .
