Here is our Finished Teaser Trailer.
We have chosen a french soundtrack as we have been inspired by the french lifestyle as well as the title of the film being french. Although we originally wanted to use a song by Brigitte Bardot, we could't do this due to copyright reasons and so decided to look for songs by unsigned artists that are free to use on websites such as:
Using final cut pro, we stitched together all our footage that was separetly filmed and slowed down some section and sped up other in order for the picture to match the soundtrack and also to achieve a smooth, consistent pace.
We also added effects such as dulling the colour and placing an effect on top of the existing footage to give a vintage feel to the film which is what we wanted to achieve from our inspiration of old, classic films such as Breakfast at Tiffany's.
On reflection, I believe that we have managed to achieve the type of teaser that we originally had in mind. It reflects our personal taste and is a thorough representative of our genre. I also think that taking the risk of creating an unconventional teaser was a good idea due to achieving something different and original which is an important value when making an arthouse film. Our simplistic style also makes the teaser sophistocated and stylish as well as arousing the audience's interests and expectations which is what we hoped to aim for when originally planning our filming process.
