The Eleventh Hour

Just whipped up a quick book trailer for Jeff Hirsch’s debut novel, The Eleventh Plague.

It was agreat read and I really wanted to do another book trailer… try out some different flava’s, y’know!

The song in the background is Stem/Long Stem/Transmission 2 off of DJ Shadow’s AMAZING album, Endtroducing. Check out the full song here on the Youtubes.

Hope you like my latest creation:

Trial & Error…and Success(?)

Look! Some efforts and signs of life!!!

I’ve been thinking of making a book trailer movie for a while and finally I’ve found the time! I’m pretty used to a variety of video capturing and editing software, but I’m still relying on the crutch of PowerPoint and the proprietary, albeit incredibly user friendly Camtasia…sorry Jing, but you did NOT float my boat! Also, I may have been trying to cram too much into this trailer by adding book-talking and RA elements. Still I’m happy with the final product and can already see how to improve the quality of future videos. I may not be a paid librarian yet, but I sure am having fun pretending to be one πŸ˜‰
