The basics

Create a movie trailer that captures your style

With video, the look is everything. Use Biteable’s online movie trailer creator to make a trailer with peerless style and start a buzz in your online circles. There are a few tips and tricks you can keep in mind when editing to make your trailer just that little bit tastier.

Balance video and text

Too much video and you’ll lose your message. Too much text and it’ll overwhelm your viewers. It can be tempting to sway one way or the other, but it’s best to stay firmly in the middle with a balanced mix of video and text to keep people engaged.

Keep your messaging clear and simple to engage your viewers.

Keep your tone consistent throughout your trailer

Another thing to remember as you create your movie trailer: keep your creative tone consistent. Don’t whiplash between animated and live-action footage, and try to use scenes from the same design style (another reason to check out Biteable’s video templates).

Consider your audience

Who are you making the trailer for? Think about your target audience, the demographic they’re in, styles they might like, and what will speak to them. Watch movie trailers aimed at the same market for some inspiration.

Knowing your audience also comes in handy if you’re putting your movie trailer on social media channels, where you can create objectives and set demographics for your ad campaigns. This will help you find the perfect viewers for your trailer.

Pro tips

How to make a trailer that sings

You’ve made your tasty trailer. Now it’s time to serve it up on a silver platter. With just a little bit more polish, you can turn your movie trailer from amazing to spectacular (like Spider-Man).

Shorter is sweeter

Like a delicious canapé, the most scrumptious movie trailers are the ones that leave your viewers asking more questions. The best way to do this? Keep your movie trailer nice and short to leave people wanting more.

You don’t need to give them the whole story, the fundamental basics will do.

Ideally, your movie trailer should be between 30-60 seconds. This isn’t a hard and fast rule, but if you go over one minute, make sure you’re doing it for a reason. Many movie trailers fall apart because they’re too long, making viewers lose interest before the conclusion.

And don’t forget that people can see the length of a video before they watch it. Sometimes length alone is enough reason for someone to close the tab.

Have a sizzling start

It’s the same rule with books, movies, and TV shows – if you want to capture someone’s attention, do it fast.

One way to achieve this is to start with an intriguing idea or premise. Do this by weaving some text, or a voice over, into the opening scene of your movie trailer. Flashy visuals are important, but it never hurts to give a bit of context.

How? Think about your audience. What sort of questions might they have that you should answer right off the bat? Remember to do it in as few words as possible. Short, sweet, and sizzling is the name of the game.
