Filmmaker Remakes Ferris Bueller's Day Off Trailer To Look Like Emotional Indie Drama

Filmmaker Joseph Brett decided to remake the trailer for Ferris Bueller’s Day Off after seeing it in a theater this week. “My aim was to make it look more like an indie coming of age film; perhaps the kind of film Sofia Coppola or Godard might make,” he wrote. Seems like he did a pretty excellent job. TC mark

    Godard didn't make coming of age movies…

    amazing what music, scene selection and slow-mo details can do to change a film's intention … it came as a thoughtful new perspective. I believe Mr. Hughes would have been pleased … he was an inspiring teacher after all.
