The movie trailer is the ultimate remix

The form of the trailer is compression. brevity. levity. altered context. unfulfilled expectations. the trailer is a remix that is pure irony because there is never time to grasp the meaning of anything. It’s all fleeting. Temporary. Fluid. Suggestive but not conclusive. The trailer is the perfect post-modernist form because it rejects “meaning” in order to replace it with a rapid succession of layered experience. The layering erupts the intent and creates new possibilities. infinite possibilities.
