Creating A Book Trailer with art, video, photos, and audio!

This is some text inside of a div block.

About this course

Book Trailers are short powerful video clips, like a movie preview or ‘trailer ’which captures the viewer attention and motivates them to read the book.

Why do you want to learn how to do this? Book Trailers are great ways to share your love for reading and your favorite book. It is also a great way to share your knowledge and artistic skill with others. Whether it is your friends, family, or teachers, Book Trailers are amazing showcases for your ideas and skills.

What you'll learn

You will primarily be learning how to apply your artistic skills to the project. You can draw, animate, act, speak, use the computer, and use so many other skills and talents.

We will break down the project into 8 easy lessons, but the real magic is putting it all together using computer software.

Video and photo editing are valuable skills both for school and for real world work. We will be exploring doing both those skills in this class.

We will also need to learn how to use a camera to capture action, mood, and some ‘movie magic.’

Finally you will learn how to use editing software to create a unique video product to share with friends, family, or the whole world.

Materials & Homework

Bring your favourite book. Please read it ahead of time. Have ideas about what is the most important and exciting parts of your book. That will be the best place to start in creating our Book Trailer.

You will need a camera (a phone might have a great camera). You will need a stand or tripod to put your camera on, to hold it steady. You could also use a friend to help you record.

You will need a computer (preferred) or tablet to edit the video.

You will need a place to work, record, or perform.

You will need to come with a desire to learn and a passion to share ideas with others.
