Trailer Madness: Homecoming

First, watch this:

And now behold, the fruit of a month's labor, and one intense weekend's scrambling: a shot-for-shot remake of the trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming, starring the Darwin children, a friend, our house, the blue screen, and featuring a cameo by our big blue van.

Julia, the auteur, kept a spreadsheet of every shot, every line of dialogue, and the timing of each.

Darwin and I woke up to a frenzy of reshooting this morning because twelve shots had been deleted before being uploaded. But now the work is done and everyone is about to have celebratory M&Ms.

For fun, here's a side-by-side comparison of the two trailers. If it doesn't autoplay for you, click the professional trailer first to get the timing mostly right.

The creativity of your children continues to amaze me.

This sort of thing takes a lot of organizing and improvising, both; it's quite impressive.
