Just when we thought it was time to take down the stockings, we received this video from one of our fans, Joe Childress. At first glance, it looks like the trailer to a movie, but according to the filmmaker, it was just a “company christmas video” taking to a 1337 level.
My bosses told me they wanted to make a Christmas video this year and when I think of Christmas videos I think of employees wearing Santa hats and waving at the camera, or companies putting pictures of employees on elf bodies and making a lame animation. I wanted to do the complete opposite….so I turned this project (the company Christmas video) into an opportunity to make a fake movie trailer, which I’ve always wanted to do.
Everything shot was used used exclsuively for the making of the trailer, but rather impressively, the minute-and-a-half video provides a better narrative than most holiday films (not named Christmas Vacation or Bad Santa). ‘Out of The Frost’ is part Change-Up, part Santa Clause, part…Mission Impossible? In essence it doesn’t look like most holiday films, which makes it an intriguing prospect for a feature.
I wanted to make a trailer that looked real…I kinda just wanted to turn the ‘company Christmas video/card’ on it’s head and show that they don’t have to be lame, boring, or cliche.
Sure Christmas might be over, but production for most Christmas features usually begin a year in advance, the question in regards to “Out of The Frost” is, ‘should Joe take a few days off from work at the office to turn this into an actual feature, not just a trailer to spark up the conversation around the water cooler?
