The Suicide Trailer

The Suicide Trailer (1978)

15 June 1978 22 mins

Todd Haynes's first effort, recently rediscovered and now available on the Criterion Blu-Ray of SAFE. " I actually made my first film in high school - with a crew and a big production. It was called The Suicide. We emulated the Hollywood practice of oppression: script girls and all the obligatory hierarchies and stuff. I was the co-producer. I wrote the story for a these exam in high school, and it's a film that actually is very similar to poison in structure: it has all these different voices and intercuts all these different realities. We started to shoot it in tenth grade, and we worked on it for two years. The entire second year was devoted to the sound track. We started in Super-8, but by the end of the year we had blown up all the tracks to 35mm. We were able to use the Samuel Goldwyn studios to do our final mix through film brat kids' connections. We went in and did it right after Barnaby Jones and right before The Last Waltz."
