Book trailers

The film industry has trailers. Music artists have videos. The internet now allows us to host such things easily online – whether it’s on websites, blogs or MySpace. So why are there not more book trailers, I found myself pondering after watching the trailer for Roger Morris‘s novel, Taking Comfort?

Answer: cost.

Then, quite by chance at a business breakfast yesterday I met a guy from a creative agency, had a chat and the upshot is I’m hoping that the costs will come in ok so we can do a trailer for a book I’m promo-ing next year. Fingers crossed…

    I think that many people have yet to realise how far the cost of (albiet amateur) video production has down while still supplying decent video and audio quality. Not braocast quality, perhaps, but for a viral (say) more than adequate.
