If I were very clever, or even moderately clever, I think I’d know a better way to link to this.
For now, I’ll go with simple. Here is a link that will take you to YouTube and the site for Sabotage & Dialogue. That’s the small production company I’ve been working with in my first efforts to creat a book trailer for one of my own books.
I am emerging from this experience with a much greater amount of respect for people who make videos and movies. I’ve come to realize that this creative process is far more complicated than writing. With a book, it’s me and the keyboard, and an unlimited budget for special effects. You want dragons the size of construction cranes? Sure. Gimme a paragraph, and they’re all yours.
But with a camera and a soundtrack . . . whoah. Whole different thing.
This has been a steep learning curve for me, so be kind. Anything you like, put that down to cooler and more experienced heads prevailing! Anything a bit bumpy, well, that’s probably me driving from the back seat!
And all in all, we had a lot of fun doing this. And it couldn’t have been too bad for S & D, because Kat says that yes, they’d be willing to do another book video. Even with me!
Hope you enjoy this, my first effort to make images that match what I see in my mind!
