Growing Friendships book trailer
« on: March 14, 2017, 10:12 PM »
Today we got dumped on with about seven inches of snow plus a lot of sleet and ice on top of that. For my snow day project, I just finished creating a video trailer for my new kid's book, coming in July, called Growing Friendships: A Kid's Guide to Making and Keeping Friends.

The process was fun but time-consuming. I created (wide-size) slides in Powerpoint, using images my publisher provided from the book, and some animated words. I then exported these directly into imovie, where I added my voice over plus public domain animal noises I got off the web. My youngest daughter (a high schooler) wrote the music for the soundtrack.

Here's the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9F_ctQtFJNk

That's a great book trailer and I loved the dog and cat interjections. So cute! And funny too! Gives the flavor of the book. You have a lovely voice and it blends so well with the music.
