Last year when "genrocks" posted her epic "Filmography 2010" video (seen here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I4dEWO...) she said that the 2010 slate of movies changed her view of what was possible in film. Well, her video changed my opinion of what was possible with movie trailers, as she hit on a creative goldmine of sorts with her fantastic mash-up. It pushed me to start playing around with more advanced video editing and opened a whole new world of creativity for me.

For the 2011 movie year, instead of doing the "entire year in film", I decided to create a mash-up of most of the movies released this year that had to do with action, adventure, science fiction, and the like. It's broken down into distinct phases, which focus on some of the major "types of movies" (super hero, ninja/samurai, robots) or "types of scenes" you'd see in movies such as these (slow motion, car chases, fights). I used almost entirely clips from the movie trailers released through the date of posting, though I did splice a few things from some of the "clips" that were released for some of the movies.

I have 45 movies worth of clips in the video, and it covers most of the movies released or scheduled to be released during 2011. While there are a few that do not make appearances (Sherlock Holmes 2, Darkest Hour, etc.) due to December release dates, and as such, do not currently have trailers out, a few movies like "The Mechanic" or "Attack the Block" didn't make the cut because I'd gotten the video as perfect as I wanted too, and "forcing" clips into it would only have altered what I believed to be a finished product. Nothing in those trailers would've made the video "any better" or "any worse" in my opinion, so I just left them out. I could've waited for Sherlock or Darkest Hour, but again, the combination of having a nearly finished project and waiting months for those trailers led to me excluding them from the project. Plus, what BETTER time to release a video like this than during summer blockbuster season when everyone's amped up for the June through August smorgasbord of action?

I used "Sony Vegas Movie Studio HD Platinum 10.0" to make the video. If you're looking to get going in video editing, it's a fantastic program that you can get for under $150 and it comes bundled with an audio program and DVD maker. It has numerous formats for you to export the video to, and easily lets you render into 1080p HD-quality for YouTube viewing. The only thing I'd recommend is making sure you have a computer with enough video RAM memory to handle the rendering and editing.

The song playing is by 30 Seconds to Mars, and is called "This is War". I love the band and the song fit perfectly with the various highs/lows throughout and I was able to match it up very well with the video.

Below, you'll find a list, in no particular order, of the movies that appear throughout the video.
