Trailer pics

A bit of a com-post today. When books are released, part of the promotion is a book trailer. A book trailer is like a movie trailer except completely different.

Because I like makin stuff, I was really happy when Greenwillow was willing to give me the reins. I had some vague idea to do an animatic, but it ended up being crummy and I'm not ashamed to say it. So, I was glad when they let me scrap the entire thing and make something that I felt was way more appealing. Phew.

Here are some boardy frames from the original. It was a good project, I'm glad I could do it.

I just finished the book last night, and these pictures make me want to start it all over again. Thanks for such a wonderful story! So is the trailer ready? Can you post a link?

Aw shucks #^_^#

@Nikki - The trailer isn't ready yet (due to my wishywashyways) but hopefully this next week.

I cannot say how much I love these pictures (forget the trailer, I'm already in love). And I just finished it yesterday. SO SWEET!!! You nailed this story, Heather. Congratulations. ^_^
