The Washington Post news article Reporters thought this video was North Korea propaganda. It came from the White House. includes a five minute video shown in Singapore immediately before the US president engaged with reporters following his one-on-one discussion with the leader of North Korea.
Reporters crowded into a Singapore auditorium Tuesday, expecting President Trump to walk out and announce the results of his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Suddenly, two huge screens on either side of the empty podium came to life. Soaring music boomed over the speakers, and the reporters were bombarded with a montage portraying North Korea as some sort of paradise.
Golden sunrises, gleaming skylines and high-speed trains. Children skipping through Kim Il Sung square in Pyongyang. North Korean flags fluttering between images of Egyptian pyramids, the Taj Mahal and the Lincoln Memorial.
[...] The film was not North Korean propaganda. It had been made in America, by or on the orders of his White House, for the benefit of Kim.
[...] The nearly five-minute movie even had its own Hollywood-style vanity logo: “A Destiny Pictures Production,” though a film company by the same name in Los Angeles denied any involvement in making it, and the White House has not yet responded to questions about it.
Question: Who is "Destiny Pictures", and has there been anything similar to this video before?
White House API reporter Zeke Miller called the video Michael Bay-esque:
Haven't seen this before: Before POTUS comes out for press conference, WH shows a Michael Bay-esque video showing Trump and Kim, military weapons, bombs
YouTube version of the video thanks to Motherboard, thanks to @Michael_B's comment.
has there been anything similar to this video before?I have seen some opinions comparing it to motivational videos for employees of big corporations, not sure of how accurate that assessment is.
