Drake And The Fliers Has A Trailer!

Fellow authors, I need to tell you a secret – you can create a book trailer for free.

Last night, my son (he’s 11, by the way) showed me a “trailer” he made with his school iPad. It was pretty cool, so I asked him to show me how me made it. He directed me to iMovie on my phone.

So I started playing around.

I wonder if I can make a book trailer with this, I thought.

I hopped onto Pixabay and gathered a bunch of free-use photos that would be good for such a thing. The final result looked pretty neat, so I put it on my personal Facebook page. The reception was way better than I expected. So today, I hopped onto Google images for some better-quality pics labeled for reuse (thanks to Cathleen Townsend for teaching me how to find those).

Basically, I wanted to see if I could create a cool trailer for free. Check out the final result!

It’s not professionally produced by any means and uses a template, but considering I spent nothing on it, I don’t think it’s too shabby.

  4. Pretty cool, Allison!
    I’ve been working on marketing pieces for my upcoming book release and love the idea of adding a trailer. I didn’t realize it could be that easy, so I put it on the back burner.
    The iMovie app is on my Mac. I’ve never played with it and didn’t realize it could be used that way, but I definitely need to check it out! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  5. Nice! Looks like a movie trailer. I made my own book trailer for The Wedding Crasher that’s on sale. You can see it pinned on my Twitter page at @KimCoxAuthor but I used the free Microsoft program Movie Maker. There are a few things I wanted to do that I couldn’t or haven’t figured out how to do yet.
