trailers

Heard an interesting R4 documentary a while ago, via a podcast, about the art of making film trailers. I hadn't realised - though it may be different now - that the trailers weren't made by the filmmakers but by a little trailer-making company in London. Also, the famous title sequence image of James Bond being seen as if down the barrel of a gun wasn't originally in the film but was created by the man who made the trailer, who had the foresight to copyright it.
