Create a book trailer: Up to 3 free apps to create an amazing movie
Advertising your book is a real challange, as any writer can tell you. As well as using traditional methods of communication, you need to find new and original ways to connect with your readership. An option is the creation of an animation book trail. Not a lot of folks know how to make a book trail.
Whilst it is hard to recreate your own videos from the ground up, it can actually be very easy to make a basic book trail. In order to get started, you want some photographs for your trailers, usually these would be taken by you, your book covers, and your decor. With PowerPoint, you can include sound tracks, slideshows, and slideshows in your presentation and save them as videos.
Each of these create a videofile that needs to be hoted- somewhere (e.g. your website or YouTube). A number of newer applications are combining trailers and web host, such as Animoto, Prezi and PhotoShow. Choose the animated version and sound track that best suits your book. Describe the transparencies you will use in your animations.
But if you know how to use PhotoShop or another picture editing software, you can get the most out of both environments by including text in your picture file. And if you have technical skills, you can replace your own music. Once your overall run time is 30 seconds, you can no longer include transparencies.
Please click on the Preview Movie to see your trailers! When you are satisfied with your movie, click on the "Produce" icon. You can also purchase extra features to your trailers, such as longer videos, more animations and more customisation of your animations. Here is the movie I made with Animoto.
Use it to produce trailer-like presentation with plenty of animations that your audiences have to click through by hand. You will be encouraged to install the wallpaper app, but you can also make your full trailers fully web. Like PowerPoint, it features some smart animation overlay. Easily add text and other contents to your "Slides" trailers.
Click the Insert pushbutton at the top of the middle of the page to insert pictures, videos and ambient sound. Click on the link "Present" in the top right corner of the page to get a sneak peek at the film. To rearrange or remove single transparencies, click on the "Edit path" icon in the top right-hand corner.
If you are satisfied with the trailers, click on the "Share" icon in the top right-hand side and choose "Share Prezi". Preszi reserves a web adress for you, and when you go to this adress, click on the embed-icon. If you click on the "Restrict to easy forwards and backwards steps" selection box, you will see HTML.
You can copy and past this HTML into your website wherever you want to include your film. This is my humble twigibble with Prezi. Use the" Insert photos" button to insert pictures into your trailers. Then click on "Personalize" to insert the name and the name of the film. If you want to watch your movie, click Done.
Please click on "Post to your web page or blog". Please copy and past the HTML code into your website to include your film. As I don't have a PhotoShow-Abonnement, my How the Rhino Got His Skin is no longer open to the general view. But if you like PhotoShow, an one-year pass for extra functions and continuous open tracker usage costs only $39.
But keep in mind that building an on-line book publishing site is only a small part of your bigger campaigns. Did you create an animation for your work?
