In September 2005 Robert Ryang, a 25 year old assistant editor working in Manhattan, entered this SHINING trailer into a contest for assistant editors organized by the New York chapter of the Association of Independent Creative Editors. The contest involved cutting a trailer, for any movie, but into an entirely different genre. Ryang duly won with his inspired THE SHINING as a light, feelgood flick about a writer searching for his muse & a boy lonely for a father.

After posting the trailer on a secret link within his employers website, it wasn't long before the world heard about it. Within two weeks the clip had infiltrated every corner of the web & launched a whole new sub-genre of movie trailer mash-ups.
