The ‘Mockingjay - Part 1’ Marketing Campaign So Far - Is It Worthy?

This is a more editorial kind-of post from me and is pretty damn long, so bear with me…to all my other followers, apologies for the HG-related spam. Just that this campaign really sticks out compared to the other big ones this year IMHO. I may have repeated a lot of the points already in my previous posts.

So here we are, over the past few months we have had a whole bunch of different stuff related to the Mockingjay campaign, from long and agonising waits to the first teasers, to the first teaser trailer and to last night’s expedited character poster release - that is to name a few. One obvious thing you can gather from reading the comments on social media - what has been done so far has left the audience divided. To borrow a quote from Thor, the question is - is what has been done for the campaign worthy of the multi-million dollar money making mockingjay the franchise has transformed into from one of your regular young adult book adaptations?

by nightgazr! thoughts? bonus points if you figure out where I got the col parallax background images from…if they ever make a Tumblr for that film, this is the way to do it.

Thanks to all of you who saw (and are seeing) Guardians of the Galaxy this weekend, from the bottom of my heart. The Guardians are a group of oddballs, outcasts, and geeks. The movie is for anyone who ever felt cast aside, left out, or different. It’s for all of us who don’t belong. This movie belongs to you. And, today, I think we’re doing okay.

I am of course happy with all the film has accomplished box-office-wise. But what touches me the most is that the film I told the folks at Marvel I wanted to make two years ago is the film that you’re seeing in theaters today - it’s that so many of you seem to be directly EXPERIENCING the film I INTENDED. The cast, the producers, the crew, and I felt like we were making something special while we were making it. But it is very rare that a director’s INTENTIONS in creating a film, or a scene, or a character, or a line of dialogue are, seemingly, specifically what is experienced by an audience (not to mention critics!), and that seems to be what has happened here. You have allowed a talking raccoon - for a moment, a minute, or a day - to make you a little more human. And for that, I am profoundly grateful.

If I relied on myself to implement these intentions, the film would be a shambling mess. But instead, I had a wonderful cast, genius producers, an incredibly brave studio, sublimely talented visual effects artists, great editors, and the best damn crew of mostly-British bastards to actually implement these intentions for me. Where I had a good idea they would, through alchemy, transform it into a great one. Many of you involved are friends of mine on Facebook. Many of you will read this somewhere else. I love you all.

You may remember me posting here a couple weeks ago how sad I was to be finishing up the film, that I was having trouble letting go of Rocket, and that I was going to miss him. But seeing him (and Groot, and the rest of the team) embraced by the world like they have been, to be UNDERSTOOD, makes it a wonderful letting go. It’s like giving a foster pet up for adoption to the most wonderful parents in the world.

And, of course, I’m not really saying goodbye as, while many of you have been enjoying the film, I’ve spent this weekend hard at work on the sequel. I couldn’t help myself! The results are nice but it’s really the creative process I love and that keeps me going. I’m on fire with this thing! The Guardians have so many hardships and heartaches and triumphs ahead of them, and I can’t wait to share them with all of you.

Onto week two…

Love, James

Interstellar - Alternate Trailer #3 (by @antovolk)

So more of a mega-trailer combining all 3 trailers into one. And a trailer 3 edit with Evey Reborn just had to be done. Still way too packed to be even liked by Nolan so…

Special thanks to Ignition and Trailer Park for such fantastic work.


Yet another marketing rant (sorry)

Perks of being a YA-based-and-targeted franchise - the obligatory original soundt-oh wait none of those are in the actual film (ok Lorde in the end credits). They just overshadow the score albums and that annoys me.

Also are we really stepping back from being this big blockbuster franchise rivalling (and possibly beating) the likes of Christopher Nolan and MARVEL Studios to another run of the mill teen book based film? At least the non-viral marketing so far is suggesting that and IMO what’s being done there is not worthy of what the HG franchise has now become. (no doubt film should be good)
