I don't believe book trailers do much

...beyond entertaining the author during that waiting period between the final proofs and the arrival of the finished copies of the book. Here's the little trailer I made, just so one day I can say I was part of the trailer phase, brief as it was. The video was shot by H. I loved it when I saw it, so I borrowed some frames and asked for his help with a couple elements I couldn't figure out. So here it is. Ta-da!

That's what I look like at readings. Breasty. Eyes closed.

Also, that cover breaks my heart.

Brenda Schmidt said...

Ha!

I love the cover. The cover image is from a photo by H.

that's got a remarkable amount of suspense for such a quiet scene.

one day I'll get a trailer past the storyboarding...

Brenda Schmidt said...

Thanks, Pearl!

Ha! Yes, a person can tinker with video forever. I get frustrated, too, or the program gets frustrated with me, which doesn't help!
