We’ve been kicking around the idea of a book trailer for Paris for some time now. Book trailers are often not very good, sometimes they’re inventive, but usually look like cheap movie trailers.
This no doubt has much to do with budget. Just don’t have the resources to do things like that with the budget for a novel.
I believe though that AOE Studios has come up with some great ideas to make book trailers more effectively. Stills of drawn characters won’t cut it nor will B-rate acting nor will special effects and titles that look like they were made by a fifth grader.
Quality over quantity.
