Creation of a book trailer

This book trailer was in collaboration with a group of very gifted people and some very excellent friends.

It started out as an idea roughly transferred to post-it notes on a cardboard sheet. A story board …of a kind.

A friend, writer and soon to be (for this trailer at least) production assistant, Alana Brekelmans did introductions to film director Tim Bray.

Tentatively, I showed the board to Tim who took the concept and breathed life into the trailer. Tim enlisted cinematographer Jordan Glew and another production assistant, Amelia Zimmerman to film. For someone who usually works alone in my studio, it was magical to be part of such a creative team.

After the filming was finished, it would have been an injustice not to have a soundtrack of top quality to match. So  James Enchelmaier a music producer and sound engineer was enlisted.
Then Andrew Wrangell, music composer created an original score.

All that was left was to persuade (beg) a group of superb musicians to record the piece. To this end I am eternally grateful to:
Janet Brewer – Clarinet
Andew Wrangell – Piano
Brett Newmann – Drums
Ken Gibson – Bass
I extend my thanks and gratitude for what they have brought to this project.
