Hi Folks! I spent some time learning a little about video and image editing and I am pleased to announce my first video on YouTube, a movie-style trailer for The Retreat to Avalon.
You can see it on YouTube here: The Retreat to Avalon Trailer
A little background- Any lover of Arthuriana will probably recognize the music score as a nod to the best King Arthur movie made. Luckily, it’s a open license on that. I also used a video game, one of the best strategy games ever, to create the short battle clips. I’ve actually used that game to wargame battle ideas during the writing of the book. It’s not an exact science, but it helped confirm some basic ideas.
The coolest part, I think, is that I took each of the chapter art pictures and had them animated in small ways to give them a little pop. It’s a nice effect, I think. I hope you enjoy it also.
If you like it, please give it a thumbs up, and if you click subscribe, it would help me get more notice for the book, and you won’t have to worry about getting a lot of notices, because I don’t do many video. Thanks!
