Trailer Trash…

A while back we were asked by a lecturer to write the cover text for our own biographies. Needless to say, that excercise turned out to be pretty pointless in the end. But it did give me an idea. Why not try to write the trailer for my life? It should be fun, right? Let’s have a try:

 

- Black screen opening with Chuck Riley type voice
saying -

 

In a land, pestered with mediocrity

- When the word mediocrity is said, it zooms into view
on-screen, to then zoom past after a short pause -

 

“Where political correctness and polite violence are everyday horrors”

- Fast clips showing political correctness and polite
violence -

 

“One man rose from the ashes of a broken home”

- Flashes of an eye, a lock of hair and a belt; all from a
panning close-up camera -

 

“He dared to be a geek”

- Camera going back, man flashing backlit and only visible
as a dark figure, standing with hands on hips. In flashes
logos such as Apple, Twitter, Facebook, Palm, Wikipedia,
Firefox and Google are visible in the shadowy fog surrounding
the outlined body -

 

“He became the friend of women”

- Camera continues backwards -

 

“He could handle irony”

- Close-up of mouth, one side going up in wry smile -

 

“He is…”

- Screen dark -

 

“…The Nice Guy!”

- Text zooming onto screen, then exploding away -

 

Coming October 22, 2010. Check at your local theatre or at Fandango.com. Rated R!

- Said text showing small on the screen -
- End -

 

Do you think this has any potential?

PS If you don’t know the name Chuck Riley, have a listen to this clip from VoiceHunter.com, and you’ll know…

    It would be a hit, in certain subcultures. In Lund, we’d have to watch it at Kino ;-).
