Trailer Time: Within Reach

The trailer you are about to watch was one of the “promoted” trailers that came up when I typed in “book trailer 2013.”  I’m glad it was.  Watch to see why:

As you undoubtedly saw, this trailer has everything a good trailer should:

  1. Character introduction
  2. Plot introduction
  3. Intrigue
  4. Suspense
  5. Mix of visuals and text
  6. Compelling sounds and effects

It’s also a video trailer, but it’s not done in a way that suggests a movie-style budget.  The camera shots and acting is professional enough to count as a positive, but also inexpensive enough to be attainable for independent authors.

What does an example like this spark in your imagination?
