Watch: 'Ghostbusters' Trailer Remade by Group of Middle Schoolers
It's Halloween, so it's the perfect time for some Ghostbusters fun, especially since this year is the 30th anniversary of the 1984 classic. This time we've got a sweded version of the original trailer for the film that was made by some middle school students from Raw Art Works, a nonprofit organization set up in Lynn, Massachusetts with an aim to encourage young people to tell stories through filmmaking. It's a fun little video that would make Michel Gondry proud as they use the real audio from the original Ghostbusters trailer and shot footage using whatever props they found, from NERF guns to toy cars. It's adorable. Watch!
Here's the sweded trailer for Ghostbusters from Raw Art Works (found via THR):
And for comparison, here's their sweded video side-by-side with the original trailer:
University parapsychologists Dr. Peter Venkman (Bill Murray), Dr. Raymond Stanz (Dan Aykroyd) and Dr. Egon Spengler (Harold Ramis) lose a research grant when their experiment methodology is proven to be bogus. The team decides to go into business for themselves and open 'Ghostbusters,' a ghost removal service. After struggling to get on their feet, they are summoned to investigate the strange happenings in Dana Barrett's (Sigourney Weaver) Central Park West apartment. What they discover is that all Manhattan is being besieged by ghosts and other worldly demons through a portal in her building. Columbia Pictures first released Ghostbusters in 1984, and this year marks the 30th anniversary of the film's release. Cool?
