‘Coming Soon!’ A Fake Trailer Shot on Real Film

When no one's down to get down at the hottest club in town, Special Agent Rocko DiSimone (you might remember him from TV!) and expert vibeologist Sandy Somerset (star of late night cinema) are on the case! They'll bring the good vibes and the good times to a story so action packed (and packed with action) that it could only be seen on the big screen. Created for Straight 8 in 2021 and shot on a Yashica Super 800 Electro from 1974 with only one roll of film and in camera editing, this trailer for a fictional 70s porno is a love letter to the golden age of adult cinema.

Director Statement

Good Vibe Cinema is a San Diego based production company in the business of good vibes and good times. Through Super 8 film, live theatrical events, and the Vibe Talkin podcast, Good Vibe Cinema invites audiences to live a life that's more cinematic. In her work, executive producer and playwright Vic Terry explores the inherent theatricality of our existence, the complicated space where staging and raw emotion intersect, and the often blurred line between authenticity and performance. She is inspired by the juxtaposition of glamour and grime - by a twitchy neon sign that stands out against a striking desert skyline - and fascinated with capturing both the humor in grief and the tragic heart of comic characters.
