Stories in Motion: a look inside book trailer creation by Alicia Kat Dillman (guest post)
Hi everyone, today I’m joining you here at the awesome Teen Librarian’s Toolbox to talk about book trailer creation.
Once the artwork is completed, I drop it into place within Animoto and hit the “Produce Video” button. Lastly I remix the completed video about 10-20 times to get the trailer that most closely fits my vision. And there you have it, the process I go through when creating book trailers.
Indie author & illustrator Alicia Kat Dillman is a lifelong resident of the San Francisco Bay Area. Kat illustrates and designs book covers & computer game art by day and writes teen fiction by night. The owner of two very crazy studio cats and nine overfull bookcases, Kat can usually be found performing, watching anime or hanging out in twitter chats when not playing in the imaginary worlds within her head.
Seventeen year old Patrick Connolly has been hopelessly infatuated with Nualla for years but he is all but invisible to her. Until, that is, he rescues her from a confrontation with her ex. Little does Patrick know he’s just set off a dangerous chain reaction that will thrust him into a world of life altering secrets and things that shouldn’t exist, because the fog and mist of San Francisco is concealing more than just buildings.
