Jaden’s first book trailer

I FINALLY finished the first book trailer for Jaden Baker, using an edited excerpt from chapter eleven. The hardest part of the production? Having to listen to my voice over and over and over again. Man. We all hate listening to ourselves, right? Second hardest part? Getting started. Once I outlined the trailer with storyboards, it went together rather smoothly and just needed my time and dedication.

So here it is, trailer one, The Stranger:

Please share!

    Nice work! You have a great voice for voice overs. You should get a job doing that too!

      Thanks. As for my voice…then I’d have to listen to it all the time. That’s the freaking worst!

    this is very cool — what’s the app you used for this?

      Thanks Ben! I used Keynote to create the slides, my iPhone to record the audio, and iMovie to sync them up. My mac is too old to run After Effects, so I had to go the long way around.
