Book Trailer

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.

So, enjoy!

And, keep writing.
