Students' 'Skyfall' Trailer Hits the Big Screen for Bond Premier
A trailer for the new Bond film, created by film students at the University of Hertfordshire, is being shown before every film at the Hatfield Odeon this week to promote the regional premier of ‘Skyfall’.
A team of seven BA Film and Television students came up with the concept and design of the trailer – playing on the theme of the famous James Bond gun barrel opening – and then worked alongside their tutor, Howard Berry to create and animate the finished video.
The big screen
Ben Freeden, one of the students who worked on the trailer, said: “We wanted to keep the concept fast paced and mysterious to keep with the Bond theme, but in a way which would inform the viewers of this exclusive event. Camera flashes illustrate exclusivity and with the bottles of beer and food, show how everyone can sit back and enjoy our James Bond heritage.
“It’s great to see something that I have worked on being shown on the big screen. As a film student, making movies is what I want to do in the future so this was an insight to what’s hopefully to come.”
Watch the trailer
The full trailer can be viewed on the University of Hertfordshire’s YouTube Channel.
The trailer advertises the Hertfordshire premier of ‘Skyfall’ and its sponsors which takes place on Thursday 25 October at the Odeon Hatfield, in aid of the Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths. Tickets for the event cost £30 and can be purchased from the cinema box office.
