It’s been far too long since the last Night of The Trailers event, but I’m making up for that with three cool happens during DukeFest Zero, read on to find out what I’ve got up my sleeve for those wild 4 nights of film mayhem.
Join me on Monday 30 June at The Phoenix for The Duck Video Mix, an audio visual assault on all your senses, especially your sense of decency, this mix has taken me a year to put together and will demolish your mind with exactly 60-minutes of fight scenes, found footage, vintage TV, adverts, music videos and strangely enough only one solitary trailer, but what a trailer it is! Take a look below at the only thing I’m going to let you see in advance, you’ll love this guy when you see him.
But like everything else in the Duke Mix he’ll only be on screen for scant seconds, to be quickly replaced by something equally as odd and fast moving. On the night I’ll also try and explain why it’s called The Duck Mix as well, though I’m not sure the answer really makes a whole lot of sense.
The following night, Tuesday 1 July, I’ll be back at The Phoenix with my bonus event, my Found Footage Battle Royale audition! Every year at the Cinefamily in LA, the VHS mix masters Everything Is Terrible hold the Found Footage Battle Royale, the closets there is to a world championship of strange video footage. This year I’m hoping to head over there in September to take part. You have to submit 6 two-minute clips which you can play on the night, along with 15 other contenders.
On the night I’ll be unleashing my clips on you as a test audience to see how they play, expect the unexpected is all I’m going to say, these specially edited super obscure clips play fast and pack a punch! I can’t wait to reveal them all to you. We’ll also take a look at last year’s winner, so you know what I’m up against. Here’s the only thing I’m going to let you see before the night:
Who is this man and what is he apologising for? Join me on the night to find out!
The on our Closing Night, Wednesday 2 July at The Prince Charles Cinema, I’ll be opening the night with a mystery 35MM trailer reel, what’s the mystery? You’ll find out on the night. That’s all I’m going to say about the night, but I will give you a look below and some of the trailers I’ve selected for the evening, you’re going to love these, 35MM lovers don’t miss this!
Look for a full 100% completely brand new Night Of The Trailers show in Spring 2015!
