About This Workshop
is king. If you didn't know that, the thought of "going live"
probably makes you cringe. There are other ways, however, besides going live
that can still generate results, help you get your stories in front of new eyes
and win readers who've never heard of you. If you could do this on your own
without some major, high priced production company, wouldn't you want to try?
In its simplest form, a book trailer for your story is nothing more than a
descriptive sequence of words, awesome pictures and amazing music strung
together in a logical but entertaining sequence that's not more than 60 or 90
seconds long. YOU can do this.
In this book trailer course, you will learn how to use three of the most popular video production tools including Youtube Studio Creator, Animoto and Ripl. All of these have free versions which will appeal to anyone, especially new users who are just starting out. You will also cover where to find free or low costs graphics, word choice, finding a story element for the trailer and narrowing your focus as well as where to get awesome music loops and tracks for FREE! You will also get a cheat sheet, story board and resource guide in the course.
Once you learn how you can build your own book trailer, you'll wonder why you were so fretful. What author doesn't need more outlets to promote their books?
