Animated Short Film Pitch For Platinum Dunes’ ‘HALLOWEEN’ That Never Happened
We know that directors make pitch trailers or short films for studios to try and get the job and lots of them never get that gig. Check out the video below and images created to pitch for Dimension Films’ HALLOWEEN re-remake, when Platinum Dunes was aboard to produce, not so much anymore.
The video was created by Federico D’Alessandro, the head Storyboard Artist and Animatics Supervisor over at Marvel Studios (who worked on Thor, Captain America, Avengers, as well as Iron Man 3 andThor 2). Now that’s impressive but wait until you see his video pitch!
As a lifelong ‘Halloween’ fan it would be a dream to direct a reboot of the franchise that’s so near and dear to my heart,” said D’Alessandro. “I created this animatic to show the tone and storytelling that I would bring to the project if I were lucky enough to have that chance.” He added: “It turned out pretty cool, but unfortunately while I was in the middle of working on it, talks fell through between Platinum Dunes and the Weinsteins…so I missed the boat on that one.
