Make Your Own Book Trailer
I like making videos. No, they're not going to win any awards, but it's fun regardless. Sometimes I like to make them for other people's books. Here's one I made for a YA book by Kerstin Gier called Ruby Red. One-line summary: Gwendolyn's cousin was supposed to inherit a time-travel gene, but (surprise!) Gwendolyn inherits it instead.
Here it is in German. (Sometimes I like to dabble in German because I speak it and also because Ruby Red was originally written in German. (Rubinrot)
I made both trailers using a free program called Animoto. It lets you create free videos up to 30 seconds. Anything longer, and you have to pay. They come with music, graphics, etc. In a nutshell, you fill in your info, and Animoto creates the video. The good thing is that most people will watch a 30-second video. Anything longer, and their attention span starts wandering.
So...now we create our own videos! I made this one about a local author's romance/mystery novel.
