Attack of the Killer Parasites


(YouTube link)

The only thing stranger than making a video trailer for a magazine article is the subject of that article... Killer Parasites. Ransom Riggs at mental_floss created this trailer completely out of public domain footage he found.

Link to Killer Parasites article (warning: not for the squeamish).

We used the same technique (public domain footage) to create a trailer for a Grad Course I am teaching in Winter. http://educationaltechnology.ca/couros/709

I did something similar to this for a podcasting promo. I only used a single movie as source and didn't put nearly as much effort into the editing. It can be found at:

I think the "announcer" is a reference to the very first scene from the mock trailer - the announcer seated at the microphone. It is a clip from The Day the Earth Stood Still... not to be confused with the voiceover on the trailer. (That's V/O guy Tom Pagnotti)
