Last night at New York's West Lounge, the AICE held its third annual Trailer Park showdown, in which 45 assistant editors from various AICE member shops tried their hand at re-genre-fying classic—and not so classic—feature films, in the form of 90-second movie trailers. The top award went to Scott Rankin of Northern Lights Post, who transformed the 1988 Tom Cruise vehicle Cocktail into a Bollywood spectacle. Judges Chris Franklin of BigSky, Owen Plotkin of the Now Corporation, Lin Polito of Jump and Rob Totoriello of mad.house also awarded second place to Crew Cuts' Ian Marks, for his retro-funked up Enter the Dragon, Bitch, and third to Cosmo Street's Josh Berg for recutting Fame into an eerie psychological thriller, For All Must Eat. Special recognition also went to Northern Lights' George Carty, for recutting Enter the Dragon into an especially viral-friendly comedy/romance trailer. Other films in the competition included The Day The Earth Stood Still, Please Don't Eat The Daisies, The Big Lebowski, Pumping Iron, Double Indemnity and Legends of the Fall.
