Additional Information

After watching the entire Extra Weird Sampler by Something Weird Video, Alex, Matt, and Alan were highly inspired to create a parody exploitation trailer. They decided to make this trailer for the University of South Carolina’s Spring 2007 GotFilm? filmmaking contest. This contest allowed entrants one week to make a short film that included a specific character, line of dialogue, location, and object (in this case: a claustrophobic ninja, “what have you done with my frying pan?,” a street on campus, and a broken high-heeled shoe). Although there are many direct references to its inspirational source material and there was severely limited time and money to polish it, Corporate Assault is still a very entertaining parody trailer. There were technical difficulties at GotFilm? premiere, disqualifying a few movies from the important audience vote component. Unfortunately, Corporate Assault fell victim to these technical problems, but it still won second place!
