Colore Non Vedenti Full Trailer

I hate editing trailers. It’s a lot harder than you think. The ability to sum up a story in 3 minutes or so without giving away too much of the film while still building interest in the audience is a very fine art form. Maybe this is why so many trailers suck shit. Seeing as Colore Non Vedenti is a short film that will only see an internet/possible minor film festival release, there was no real point in doing a trailer. The main reason was to have something to put up here on Film Junk and over at the production blog for those of you interested in the film. So here it is! Hopefully it sums up the story in 3 minutes or so without giving away too much of the film while still building interest in the audience!!

Around the Web:



  • Bob The Slob

    Jay, looks really awesome. I very much look forward to the release of the full film. And good job cutting the trailer, the best ones always seem to hinge on the most expositive, yet vauge, bit of dialogue in the film…which i believe you did here. I could be wrong.

    Still. well done.

  • Dan

    How pissed is Reed that you don’t get to see his name in the trailer?

  • Theman

    Kristan is a cuty…. Like I said before the stuff meets the signal. There’s your pitch. How long is it?

  • Jay great trailer! WE appreciate your hard work on this project!

    Even if you cut it at 1:20 (end it off with scary music), it still would have been fine!

  • James

    What is the name of the song used in this trailer?

  • ottobud

    Great stuff! Can’t wait to see it!

  • Goon

    is that the There Will Be Blood score?

  • Bob The Slob: Thanks!

    Dan: Not sure if he’s seen it yet, but I’ll be showing him tonight. Maybe we’ll tape his reaction.

    Theman: Yes, The Stuff is a very obvious influence. I love that movie. The final film will be about 30 minutes.

    Tom: I saw an episode of TMZ where they were showing pics of Katies Holmes cold sores. You would’ve loved it!

    James: There are three songs in the trailer. In order of appearance:

    The Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra & Tra-La-La Band & Choir – Built Then Burnt (Hurrah! Hurrah!)

    Jonny Greenwood – Henry Plainview (There Will Be Blood Soundtrack)

    Ennio Morricone – Magic And Ecstacy (The Exorcist II: The Heretic Soundtrack)

    ottobud: Great! Hope you like the final film.

    Goon: Yes.

  • Tom: I saw an episode of TMZ where they were showing pics of Katies Holmes cold sores. You would’ve loved it!

    I’m aware of them and attribute them to stress. Rumour has it that “the other Tom” wants to up Brangelina by having TEN children….I “kid” you not. :)

  • I seriously can’t wait for this, this trailer really is awesome. The music is perfect, and Tom and even Reed look totally badass in this. Good job Jay!

  • Does sean have a part in this?

  • Ian

    Nifty, something to look forward to in the coming New Year.

  • So Jay showed me the trailer tonight. Since I have no lines of dialogue, it’s not surprising that I don’t get my name in the trailer. I do look really scary in the trailer. And my look was done without any special make-up effects.

    Jay did an excellent job selecting which lines of dialogue went into the trailer. And the music choice is excellent as well.

    “The ability to sum up a story in 3 minutes or so without giving away too much of the film while still building interest in the audience is a very fine art form.”

    I say, fuck story, just give the audience atmosphere and cool scene over bad ass sound track over the shortest amount of time.

    That’s what we did with our christmas horror flick

  • Swarez….nice!

  • Bas

    Fucking awesome trailer!

  • Bas

    Any chance of a ‘Colore Non Vedenti’ and ‘Unholy Night’ double-bill?

  • swarez

    I might also add that I did the soundtrack for the trailer first and then had it cut to fit.

  • Andreas

    Well done on that trailer Jay! Looking forward to the final version. I must say I got a little bit of a Bad Taste vibe going. The disgusting looking Jelly and the cheft sorta reminded me of P.Jacksons flick…but maybe it´s just me?)

    Also just finished listening to the 200th episode – enjoyable… as it usuallly is. Keep it up guys.

    Cheers

  • Alex

    The close up on Tom during the credits is priceless.

  • Connor

    Consider me interested.

  • Theman

    Jay Have you seen Italian spiderman? Because I think you’d love it.

  • MoriaOrc

    Dude !
    Looks like fucking fun.
    Excited to see it.
    I’m still not sure what it’s about or what is going on but that’s part of what’s interesting to me about it.

    Ennio Morricone.good.
    Old school vector credits,good.
    Strange psychological premise with moody lighting,good.
    Jello molds,good.
    Reed slowly walking down a dark corridor,good.

    Yr shit look good.

  • MoriaOrc

    Halley Shannon looks super freaking cute too.

  • All I can say is: “AWESOMENESS” The musical arrangements and old-school look of things combined with a very modern cinematography and style is well: Classy.

    Kudos.

  • MoriaOrc, thx for the nod in my direction.

    Also I wondered if anyone was going to comment on Haley. After I met her, I dubbed her the next Rachel MacAdams. BTW, we’re both from the same hometown: Sudbury, Ontario, Canada.

  • Reed, when I first met her in person, she gave off a “Star Quality” vibe. If she doesn’t make it big, I’d be shocked.

  • cuebert

    Good cut of the trailer Jay.. look forward to the full release.

  • So is there gore?

    LET THERE BE GORE!!!

  • Mark In Ottawa

    Number 4 is right. Ending it with the music from “There will be blood” would have been awesome.

    Loved the use of the font from “Dead and Buried”.

    This looks really great.
