The idea behind VideoWars is simple. Ja-… er, Dr Faulk told me that he possesses the greatest video editing skills since James Cameron was alive. I in turn scoffed at these claims stating that in fact I was the one with skills that would make Agent Cody Banks cry with joy. The only way to settle this was obviously to have some kind of video editing walk-off. And so VideoWars was created.
I just stole the name from Adam and Joe. I asked 6Music to close down their show so there wouldn’t be a legal issue.
So for the first one of these we decided on “remixing” two trailers to try to make as coherent a trailer as we could. The two films chosen were Star Trek and Tron. The tone and story of each trailer was quite similar making it a good starting point in the series. For James he had to take the audio from the Tron trailer and the visuals from Star Trek and meld them together. For me I had to do the other side of the coin, Tron visuals with Star Trek sound.
