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

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!)
