I think it's pretty safe to say that a book trailer is one of the thrilling moments of publishing a book. You condense everything you've written into one enticing little preview. It's a moment, aside from actually holding a copy in your hands, when the book becomes more than just an idea that you've written on paper. It becomes a vision of so many other things. A visual representation of something you've created. Like a movie that's been playing out in your head the last few months (years) on display for everyone else to see.
So for this project, I teamed up with my brother (who is also the designer of my site) and asked for a bit of help. I directed. He designed. I provided details and elements from the book and my brother so brilliantly projected them into a 60 second trailer.
I recommend making it full screen by clicking on the 4 arrows at the bottom right of the video (click play first and hover over bottom right of image).
