2006 - The Trailer

There's a lot going to happen in 2006. Nations will rise and fall. The reputations of great men will rise and fall. Oceans will rise.

As we like to say here at Rabbit + Crow: "It's like anything."

Rabbit + Crow is no different from nations and great men and the oceans. In fact, it's exactly like it - or them, exactly like them. You have to squint a bit to see it. Or lower the light a bit too, that helps.

We will be offering heaps of new stuff in 2006 (podcasting, sequential art) and will continue the best of the old (monthly t-shirt design, the Hanatō Cat Haikus). At first, I thought I would sketch out the goodies we have in the pipeline, to get your appetites a little whetted. But then, I thought "That's so old fashioned, sketching in in that way. Do something more direct, modern, exciting!"

And so, I decided to do a movie trailer.

Here it is: "The Official Trailer for Rabbit + Crow/Neal Romanek 2006". Enjoy!


(Get QUICKTIME!)


FADE IN ON:

FADE OUT
GRIM MALE VOICE OVER: "In a world...of chaos. In a time...of vengeance. In an age...of darkness. One man...must do all he can...to save the ones he love...from the one he must destroys..."
Cue MUSIC: CARMINA BURANA bursts forth gloriously!

Exciting montage commences...

CUT TO
NEAL: (yelling at subordinates) "I don't give a damn if it is impossible! Find a way to make it possible! The impossible being made possible is our job, damn it!"
CUT TO

NEAL kissing EXOTIC FOREIGN PRINCESS in wash of blue light.
EXOTIC FOREIGN PRINCESS: "I wood geeb away all my reetches to spen wan moor nyte wih hyew..."

NEAL: "I don't want your riches. I want the impossible to be made possible. Damn it."
CUT TO

NEAL, at Comic-Con 2006, signs merchandise until his arm bursts like a water balloon full of bacon bits.

CUT TO
NEAL: "I wanted to show you something beautiful."
CUT TO

NEAL interviews a FAMOUS PERSON for Podcast. The Camera frantically circles them like a frantically circling Camera.
NEAL: "That's a lie!"
FAMOUS PERSON: "You callin' me a liar?"
NEAL: "That's a lie!"
CUT TO
F. MURRAY ABRAHAM: (looking up from Neal's published book of Crayon Drawings) "It is miraculous!"
CUT TO

NEAL in CLOSE UP. A SINGLE TEAR rolls down his left cheek.

CUT TO

NEAL lowers sunglasses so the Warner Bros. GATE GUARD can see his eyes.
NEAL: "I've come to kick ass and chew bubblegum! And I'm all out of bubblegum! Do you have any bubblegum?"
CUT TO

NEAL grabs his WIFE's cheeks and yells at her...
NEAL: "Stay alive! No matter what you may find, I will occur. I will find you, you see! Even if you die, stay alive! No matter what occurs to be found! You will find me! Ha, ha, ha! Stayin' alive! Stayin' alive! Stayin' ALIVE!!"
NEAL jumps into a swimming pool.

CUT TO

Lightning flashes, rain pours, waves rage over the bow.

NEAL lashes himself to the mast. A single desperate mouseclick finally uploads a short film.

CUT TO
HOODED VILLAIN: "Kill them. All. All of them. All of them kill. All. Them kill you all. Kill now all all kill. Koko get banana now good."
...as CARMINA BURANA stampedes toward its breathtaking finish.

CUT TO

Things exploding.

CUT TO
HOODED VILLAIN: "BWAHAHAHAHA!!"
CUT TO

Things running into each other.

CUT TO
NEAL: "Nooooooooooooo!!!"
CUT TO

Things running into each other, then exploding.
