Voices echo in the auditorium as audience members take their seats. As the orchestra is tuning up, the overhead lights flicker to indicate a one-minute warning and a hushed but expectant silence falls. All eyes turn forward as the heavy velvet drapes are swept aside, leaving your book alone center stage, shining under the warm spotlights. This is the kind of metaphorical attention a book video trailer would have gotten you in the late 1800s, when playwrights were kings — but today, as you might have guessed, the advantages are even greater!
In the modern world, a custom video trailer will put your book in front of countless new readers. It can be easily shared across any number of social media platforms—Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and many more — and embedded in your personal website, emails, or your Amazon and Goodreads book page listings. It’s an immediate, visceral way to showcase your work and hook the attention of new readers!
Video is an ambitious medium, however. You need equipment, you need expertise, and above all you need lots of time to clip and edit and curate. The planning process alone is a gauntlet of tough choices, from theme to soundtrack to shot sequence — and this isn’t even to mention the hazards of navigating the legal side of things, with complicated copyright restrictions tied to using any music or images you didn’t compose or take yourself. It’s a lot to take on.
So how do you get started?
The key is building a competent and creative team who can lift the burdens and leave you the fun choices — and this is where Outskirts Press can help!
