It is my first attempt and I can see so many areas where I could improve. It took me about two hours to create – half an hour of that was in learning how to use Movie Maker, another half an hour to play around with the music – and it’s still not exactly right – and a huge amount choosing which photos to use. Next time I’ll be more prepared and my mind is already buzzing with the images I’ll use. In fact I think I’ll do a storyboard of the next trailer – I see now why they are so important.
If you haven’t ever done a book trailer, try it, just for a laugh. The younger generation love them (apparently) and there is quite a following out there. Maybe it’s the entertainment factor.
