We released the book trailer for Sudden Mission today.
OK, I have to admit that this is not a professionally done trailer. I did it myself and had a lot of fun doing it. It is just about a minute long and I did my best to keep it flowing and tight, as well as keep from giving too much away. I hope you enjoy it.
It is on YouTube, so you can watch all you want. Make any comments, criticisms or suggestions you want. I can take it. Really.
My seven-year-old granddaughter inspired me to make this trailer on my own. She’s been a movie making maniac of late, using iMovie on her and my wife’s iPads. This got me thinking. I’ve done some work in iMovie before; converting and editing video for other projects (mostly training stuff), so I understood the basics of putting something together without using the iMovie trailer templates. I dug into iMovie, GarageBand, Keynote, and a few other tools to put this together. Like I said, this is not a professionally done trailer, but I had fun doing it and will probably do it again for the next book. It isn’t as hard as it looks and the results are great.
And, keep writing.
