Learning iMovie has been a slow and agonizing process, but I think I am finally happy with the book trailer I’ve made for The Haunted Mansion Project: Year Two.
I really like book trailers. I love the idea of a commercial for a book. I would say that I think they are difficult to do well, but maybe it’s just difficult to make one that I like. I think they tend to go on too long if they drag on much past a minute and a half. Like any other homemade video on the net, they often rely too heavily on filters and effects that distract from the message they want to convey: please buy my beautifully produced, carefully edited, and extremely well-written book.
I’d like to think my trailer meets those criteria, but let me know what you think.
Impressive and I like the unusual music. The stairs of the house look like one I saw in an old mystery movie I saw recently.
Thanks! The music is my husband’s former band, Sub-Arachnoid Space. I love their music.
Very nice! I make book trailers for just about all of my books, and have used different programs to make them. iMovie is one of my favorites, once I learned how it worked.
Send me a link to your trailers? I feel like I have a lot to learn!
