If 2020 was a Movie (OFFICIAL TRAILER)

The year 2020 has arguably been one of the most chaotic and rough years of all time around the globe. In the world of cinema though, if 2020 was an actual movie – what would the trailer look like?

MUSIC: Damned Anthem – Final Countdown // https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DtwywZUYrno

This project was much more challenging than I expected and took more than 35 hours of continuous editing in total with over 15 straight hours of searching through footage to complete. While it was increasingly depressing watching tragic news stories and unfortunate videos of from the past few months, I believe the finished product is a good summary of the major events to date of this year.

    Nobody was prepared for what would happen. Nobody had any idea this would happen

  21. Nancy Rairdon on April 6, 2021 at 10:09 pm

  25. Bobby Nikki on April 6, 2021 at 10:18 pm

  26. Felix Meier on April 6, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    2020 is a perfect template for a movie.

  27. AshDash Thunder on April 6, 2021 at 10:20 pm

  28. Child on April 6, 2021 at 10:21 pm

    i dont know how to express what i feel about this

  29. TheConorsmithusa on April 6, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    This is so cool but you really should’ve included the Beirut explosion that happened in August right at the end of the trailer.
    Many great trailers end in a bang! Wasted opportunity but still good trailer all the same . Shame but…

  30. the cool and awesome life on April 6, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    Yo this is awesome but when I heard world War three I went right into Google

  31. Maryland on April 6, 2021 at 10:23 pm

    This is giving me chills

  32. Sophie S on April 6, 2021 at 10:25 pm

    There’s one thing I don’t understand. Why can everyone just get along. There’s no point in arguing with each other because that won’t help the world. There’s more important things like keeping our environment safe and healthy..
