Well, I finally did it. I’ve seen a few book trailers popping up of late, so I figured, why not make one myself? The thing is, I had a budget of zero. Literally zero. What this meant was relying on freebie software (HitFilm Express), stock photos and sounds, and my own creativity. This is the result.
Honestly, I think that came out pretty well. Oh, and there are some Easter Eggs in there too. Yes, the Easter Eggs are obvious, but that’s cool. In all, I really enjoyed making this thing, even during the the frustrating times of realising that I didn’t have a clue how to sue the editing software.
The basic info for the book and the creation of the trailer are as follows:
Audio Clips licensed through: Freesound
Music licensed though: Free Music Archive
Photography licensed through: Dreamstime, Pexels, Pixabay
Software: HitFilm Express
Song: ‘A Dark Blue Arc’ by Pipe Choir
