Project sample: Book TrailersClick the links to view these excellent books on Amazon, more details on the original music tracks I created can be found on the Sound page (coming soon).
This first book trailer was a bit difficult, due to FotoMagico, the application I used to produce the video. Images would randomly disappear and getting the timing right was overly convoluted and buggy. When I was done, I found I couldn’t even make changes to the project after saving. The end result was close to what I was trying to do, but it took way too long to get there.Made with FotoMagico
For the second trailer I went in a simpler direction. I had learned that Amazon’s video area was tiny and not resizable, so the words had to be much bigger. Sticking to a basic style emphasized the content better. Pinnacle Pro turned out to be a much better creation tool without any unpleasant surprises.Made with Pinnacle Pro
I made this one twice as long since it was a longer book and so I could add some depth to the trailer. A slower, thoughtful cadence matches the reflective nature of the book.Made with Pinnacle Pro
