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.
