The Wire is my favourite TV show ever made, I have produced my own trailer for each season of the show.
I wanted to make something true to at least part of a storyline within the season and highlight some of my favourite scenes in the show. If you haven't watched it I highly recommend you do.
Music Used: Where's The Love - GRiZ
Programs Used: Sony Vegas 12, Adobe After Effects CS 5.5
Time Spent On Project: Approximately 11 hours
Season 1 of The Wire focuses on the duality between the police and the drug dealers in Baltimore, while it is essentially a crime drama it goes above and beyond the norm. Ultimately it is an account of life in an American city, the same issues can be seen throughout the country and indeed in other countries as well. It shows the institutional dysfunction and how all of us are compromised by and must contend with whatever institution we are committed to, be it the police force, a drug gang, dock worker it doesn't matter, we are all part of the game and the game is rigged.
