Film trailers are typically dismissed as mere marketing. But often the thought and design behind them eclipse the films they promote. Also, because they have an overt focus—they want your two bits—they allow us to see the relationship between film and audience in a very clear way. In this session we will look at the trailer for The Hobbit and examine the ways in which camera techniques and rhetorical devices are used to hook a viewer.
