The Newport Beach Film Festival has released its official 2018 marquee trailer “Quota: Who Made the Cut.” A sci-fi drama set in a dystopian future, the trailer--directed by Jillian Martin of Untitled.tv for agency Garage Team Mazda (GTM)--features two crystal miners who are pitted against each other to achieve their mining quota, and fulfill their contract. That’s the only way they’ll be able to return home. The question--like the one facing all film entrants to the Newport Beach Fest--is “who made the cut?”

The trailer will open the festival in Newport Beach, Calif., and screen before each of the 350 films on this year’s program. The festival runs April 26 through May 3.

Festival co-founder/director of marketing Todd Quartararo said he “gave the GTM free range on the creative. After considering eight ideas, GTM and Martin’s treatment for ‘Quota’ far surpassed our expectations.”

“The festival is renown for its highly-anticipated marquee trailers, which challenge and capture people’s imaginations,” said Quartararo. “We believe the quality of our branding should be equal to the exceptional production and creative values our filmmakers bring to the festival. We set the bar high. GTM and Untitled.tv have done us proud.”

Martin, along with GTM creative director Melissa Webber and DP Robert Dalsey were inspired to write the script, eventually whittling down a nine page treatment into the three minute piece.
