This week on Film Jams, we’re taking a break from our focus on lighting and camera gear to look at what sells your movie: the trailer, and using classic movie trailer quotes for impactful moments.

It’s a big world out there, and people need to find your movie. One way to get some attention is a badass, memorable one-liner or catch phrase. Something people will remember and associate with your movie.

Zack Vasquez delivers a classic movie trailer one-liner quote

Movie trailers are meant to show off the highlights of your movie, and you have to ask yourself, what would people want to see in my movie trailer? A lengthy dialogue scene may be tough to get interest in the fast-paced online world. But, if you sprinkle some exciting one-liners into your movie trailer, people pay perk up, and potentially be interested in seeing more.

Anyway, let us know what you think in the comments. Share your favorite one-liners. We’ll see you next time. Happy shooting!
