Movie trailer & marketing materials update

Lionsgate Films wants to update its library with fresh trailers and media assets.

—- Project Description : Shadow of the Vampire —-
Movie trailers, art and metadata aren’t just for new releases but rather promote through a film’s life cycle, from theatrical to on-demand, discs and beyond. Most of our films stand the test of time well, but the marketing materials don’t.

We use trailers, art and metadata to introduce a movie to a new audience or remind fans how much they enjoyed a title.

These materials will be used to market the title on iTunes, Comcast, Vudu, Amazon, other cable/satellite/telco, television, IMDB and other distribution channels.

Filmmakers are invited to create a 60 second trailer (no more) that feels fresh, relevant and contemporary….as if the movie is about to premiere. The original release date becomes irrelevant if the movie is conveyed properly to a new audience.

New artwork and a fresh synopsis written in varying lengths to suit the platforms of today are also required.

Success will be trailer and art materials whereby the viewer reaction is “Wow, can’t wait to see this film”.

The project is hosted on reBaked, a new platform for collaborative project teams. You can find the work here:
https://www.rebaked.com/projects/13

Total budget for this phase is $4,000.
This project wraps up in 56 days.

reBaked takes a unique approach to open innovation and crowdsourcing. Unlike pure contest plays, the reBaked system allows freelance contractors to negotiate a guaranteed minimum payment. Work is never done on pure speculation. Once accepted into the project’s team, collaborators can earn additional bonuses for their work: the better the submission, the bigger the bonus. There is NO FEE to join the system and begin working as a contractor.
