This trailer exemplifies some basics of trailer-making. Do you know what they are?
If you’re like me, the first thing you’ll notice is that this trailer relies on text, music, and simple effects to create an impression on the viewer. The next thing you’ll notice is that the text transitions too quickly for some sections—particularly the quotes—to be read. I can’t know who is recommending this book unless I stop the video.
This trailer has:
- A very brief synopsis.
- A very brief introduction of the hero.
- Quotes from others about the work.
- A previous book.
- The name of the publisher, author, and book.
- A means to find out more.
Is it enough?
