By the way, I'm thinking something righteously evil should be done to that "book trailer". And soon.
A video trailer for a book, is this a new thing? Just strikes me as smelly, like a viral for cheeses.
It's the stupidest goddamned thing (the name itself, I mean) that I've ever heard.
I guess they started out as book commercials on specialty channels like SciFi? I think I've seen a few of those when I've been back on my yearly trips, but they don't show them over here. Not that I've seen, at any rate. (Plenty of book talk shows, but not so many "book infomercials".)
As for DizzyJAM's video, I love the way a lot of these people have never heard of the word EDIT.
Fucking amateurs. Edit:
Whoa... I'd forgotten how easy it is to put together a movie from a series of images on the Mac. The QuickTime Player basically does it all for you. Then add background music/sound effects in iMovie and you're done.
Which just makes that "book trailer" look all the more amateurish
