AICE Trailer Park "The Shining"
A new round of assistant editors showed just how much control an editor can have in weaving a tale at the AICE's second annual Trailer Park competition, held during Advertising Week in New York. The 33 entrants set out to edit footage from seven different films (The Parent Trap, Titanic, Red River, The Shining, Super Size Me, West Side Story and Some Like It Hot) into trailers that recast the originals into completely different genres. The top prize went to P.S. 260’s Robert Ryang, who has generated a lot of internet buzz and earned Hollywood's attention for his entry, which reconfigures the classic horror flick The Shining into a feel-good family comedy. Moondog’s Paul LaCalandra earned second place for turning The Parent Trap into a lesbian love tale, and P.S. 260 assistant Tom Colella earned third place for making West Side Story into a 28 Days Later-inspired thriller (entered out of his former shop Go Robot).
