Trailer Shows Pokemon Snap Turned Into a Live-Action Movie

Here’s a bit of silly humor as we’re winding down the workweek: if you’re a photography enthusiast who has fond memories of playing Pokemon Snap during the days of the Nintendo 64, then you might enjoy this humorous fake trailer by Gritty Reboots, which takes popular movies, TV shows, video games and turns them into cinematic trailers.

This one imagines what a live-action Pokemon Snap movie would be like.

In the film, we see protagonist Todd Snap visiting Pokemon Island in order to photograph all of the Pokemon needed for a report by Professor Oak. Equipped with his Canon DSLR, Todd scurries around the island on foot and in his little motorized, amphibious buggy.

Snap is like a cross between a wildlife photographer and a conflict photographer in the Pokemon world.

If you’d like to see how the trailer itself was created, here’s a 3-minute behind-the-scenes video that shows certain shots being filmed and put together:
