Key Art Award shorts
|Those were the days|
This whimsical history of movie marketing, produced for the 25th Key Art Awards in 1996, has some kernels of truth about how the industry evolved from in-house crews to a thriving community of vendors.
Movie marketing is a tale of two worlds: the studio clients and the vendor companies who work for them. The creative collaboration, and occassional friction, between the two sides is a frequent subject of good-humored ribbing during the show, never more so in this comic spot about a machine that replaces "pesky" vendors.

The fact that movie trailers are such as well-known art form to audiences worldwide is due in no small measure to the work of the five voice-over artists featured in this comic spoof. Led by Don La Fontaine, these voices are as famous as any celebrity, even if most have never seen their faces.
