Garfinkel says: "Saw your post
on BoingBoing about the Shining trailer. Here is another from the same company. There is a third, Titanic, I am trying to track down.
I spoke thru email with the guy who did the West Side one. here is what he had to say:
"Thanks for kind words. Actually the three trailers that are flying around
the net were made by three different assistant editors here. The Shining
was done by Robert (whom I forwarded your email), West Side Story, me, tom
colella, and the Titanic by Dustin Stephens. We posted them for friends
and within two days we had almost 300,000 hits. Crazy. They were made for
the AICE Trailer Park contest. In fact here's the disclaimer from all the
attention we've been getting:
The AICE only intended the trailers to be viewed for a private audience.
They had no intentions for internet audience to view them and PS 260 did
not intend for these trailers to be made for promotional or monetary
There you have it. Glad you enjoyed them."
Update:Here's the Titanic link. (thanks, Steve!)

Automatically responds with a customizable busy message when already in a call. The killer app seems to be using it to get internet onto ancient retro portables like the TRS-80 Model 102, but it’s been put […]
Most tech-media takes on the iPhone’s 10th anniversary are bland and self-congratulatory, but I like Tom Warren’s at The Verge. He laments how Apple’s pocket computer killed his inner nerd. As a youngster, he’d be constantly tearing down and building computers, even in the sweltering heat of summer. But now… …All of that tinkering and […]
The current web development landscape is rife with buzzwords and technology that gets abandoned almost as soon as it’s made. If you’ve never written a line of code before, it can be hard to figure out what’s coming, what’s here to stay, or how to get ahead.This Beginner Web Development Bundle is a great place […]

Although fully autonomous vehicles aren’t yet allowed on public streets, they are poised to dominate the roads in the not-too-distant future. But before that happens, Apple, Google, Uber, and other companies now investing in self-driving tech are going to need talented developers that can account for the dizzying array of factors at play when a […]
