1984    Trailer
 

 

 

 

1984

Video    Modern Trailer    2020

 

Part of my trailer project

- breathing some new life into older, forgotten or overlooked films.

Mainly to spread awareness of these great films

and hopefully inspire more people to seek them out.

 

Director - Michael Radford

 

Synopsis - In a totalitarian future society, a man,

whose daily work is re-writing history,

tries to rebel by falling in love.

 

The official trailer really just didn't do much for this film

in my opinion.

 

I wanted to at least try to create something

that felt authentic to the film,

something that felt Orwellian and ominous

and gave the feeling of a foreboding future.
