VHS Trailer Remix, Hobo With A Shotgun : The director of Hobo With A Shotgun, Jason Eisener, had mentioned in the comments of the feature trailer on YouTube that they had left the faux film grunge out (film bleed, dust and scratches etc. that other grindhouse throwback films have) because he wanted it to be more of a “modern day exploitation flick” minus any retroesque styling. He then mentioned that he would, however, like to see what it would look like on VHS.
I had been trying a bunch of my own lo-fi video stuff at the time, immediately I thought this would be really cool and eventually got around to actually trying it. I recut the unrated trailer and then processed it through VHS, messing with the tracking and even hitting the deck a few times. The audio was basically faked though with digital filters and stuff because VHS does not degrade audio in quite the same way as it does with visuals, it just makes it sort of quiet and hissy. I thought the filmmakers and fans of Hobo With a Shotgun could appreciate it, or anybody who has grown up watching movies that looked just like this.
This was just a creative experiment. I do not own the copyright to this video, it was done for educational purposes only.
