A movie trailer for the imaginary Checkmate movie.


It was produced by a team of three MA Digital Media students of London Metropolitan University. Imaginary Checkmate movie is an action comedy movie, a story of unordinary chess game. The pieces come to life and the fight continues. Our idea based on the concept of movie the “Night at the Museum” (2006) where a night guard at the Museum of Natural History discovers the animals and exhibits on display to come to life because of an ancient’s curse. For my point of view it should began as a game of chess between two old friends but, as the players retire, what they set in motion has repercussions for us all. With the forces of good and evil battling it out on the board to win control of the planet, each move is replicated on earth with catastrophic effects. But, is everything as black and white as it appears, and what kind of victory awaits the winner?
