That is to say, what happens when a publisher teams up with an “up and coming” filmmaker to make a book trailer for a new fantasy novel? Well, we’ll find out in a minute. But first, what about book trailers? They’re basically what they sound like, a trailer for a book like the trailers for movies. Except usually more sedate, or boring as I saw referenced somewhere.
Anyway, here are a few links to book trailers for books you might be familiar with. After these links, I’ll put up the one I reference in starting this post.
Harry Potter and Imagination by one Travis Prinzi.
Hogshead Conversations by Travis Prinzi.
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins.
A Dance with Dragons by George R.R. Martin.
Okay, you’ve seen the trailer, possibly several times. You might be thinking what my wife and I were thinking upon first seeing this, “That’s a book trailer?! When’s the movie coming out?!” So, what are your thoughts? On book trailers in general or on this trailer for Weeks’ book? Would it make you want to buy the book? Has anybody read any of Weeks previous work? Chime in with whatever’s on your mind. Here’s also the original news release from the publisher.
