How First Focus International will create your Feature Film Trailer & Our Work Process

Trailers got their name because they were originally screened in movie theaters after films ended. Motion picture studios eventually realized audiences often left the theater without watching the trailers, so they decided to have the trailers precede films in order to ensure that audiences saw them. Today, trailers are also known as “previews” or “coming attractions.” Our created feature film will contain:

Organize your trailer using three-act structure


Great trailers tell a riveting story that gets the audience emotionally invested—and one of the best ways to achieve this is to use a three-act story structure. The beginning of your trailer should introduce the main characters, the setting, and the film’s premise; the middle should heighten the conflict, and the end should feature a climax. When assembling the structure of your trailer, it’s helpful to create storyboards of your scenes to guide you through the edit.

Show the most unforgettable scenes


A good trailer shows off the most visually dazzling and emotionally captivating scenes without spoiling major plot points. This is one of the more difficult aspects of the movie trailer-making process, but it’s important to include any footage that has a strong chance of convincing an audience to see the film. For example, a trailer for a blockbuster action film might highlight the scenes with showstopping special effects; the trailer for a comedy might use some of the funniest jokes that don’t affect the plot.

Use voice-over or text to help tell the story


Since movie trailers are so truncated compared to the complete film, voice-over and on-screen text can be beneficial tools for explaining necessary exposition. You can either write and record new voice-over dialogue for the trailer or take dialogue spoken in the film and repurpose it as voice-over.

Choose music that sets the tone


The most effective trailers are elevated through the use of well-chosen music. For example, you might choose a suspenseful score for a thriller or a lighthearted pop song for a romantic comedy. For dramas, the third act climax of the trailer often contains a strong orchestral piece over a montage of emotional scenes. You can purchase trailer music from stock music libraries as opposed to composing music specifically for the trailer.

Use editing techniques to control the pace


Add sound effects to liven up scene transitions, use quick cuts to show action, control the pace by fading in and out of scenes, and sync music cues to specific moments.

Highlight the film’s talent


A cast run is a list of star actors who appear in the film, along with any big-name directors, producers, or writers whose involvement could draw in an audience. The cast run often appears in movie previews during the final act of the trailer as it’s reaching its climax.

Trailers are an effective tool used by marketing teams in the film industry to persuade people to spend money to see a movie


The role of Feature Film Trailer in film marketing has changed and exponentially increased throughout the history of the medium, and their form is constantly evolving. While the core function of trailers is to advertise a finished product, they are created with a focused effort on grabbing an audience’s attention and initiating an emotional interaction.

The development of a feature film trailer by an organized marketing group is also an artistic venture that requires a high level of proficiency at editing and storytelling to effectively communicate the necessary elements of a film in an effort to persuade. Trailer making is a craft honed by an extraordinary amount of person-hours and intentionality, with a blend of plenty of diegetic and non-diegetic functions which exhibit the best parts of a movie.

While trailers can suffer from hyperbolicism as well as excessive genre signaling, it’s important to stand out and prove a product worthy of a customer’s dollars especially in a film culture saturated with content. As marketing budgets continue to balloon in the entertainment industry, it seems that trailers will continue to be a mainstay of promoting art, and will evolve to fit any societal shifts they encounter. So waiting for what, let’s get in touch and start building your Feature Film Trailer
