Requirements
  • You should have your published book's description, blurb, any reviews,etc in text format, with which to create a script from for your videos.
  • You should have your book cover image(s), in the highest resolution available, for best visual results.
  • You should have a credit card on hand to register at the video platform site, and for item purchases, plus for the free trial period at sites mentioned.
  • It would be helpful to have Powerpoint on your computer, to be able to utilize the pre-programmed book trailer video and intro templates I have created for you. Otherwise you can NOT use them, or outsource to someone who can set these up for you.
  • If you already have adequate images, and footage [optional], and royalty free music, it is possible that you will only need to use the video platform itself-and nothing else, to create HD book trailer videos for your book or books.
  • Included in the cost of this course: Royalty Free Music Tracks for you to use Personally; Video Backgrounds for you to use Personally; Pre-Programmed Powerpoint Templates I have created for you to use to create your own book(s) graphics and videos with, again Personal Use Only. "Personally" means you can not resell them or use them to produce videos for others.
Description

You will learn, primarily via video instruction, how to create powerful high quality HD book trailer videos, that can then be uploaded to various sharing sites (like Youtube) for more exposure for your book titles.

I have provided royalty free music tracks, video clips, and powerpoint templates (specifically for book promotion), but I also show you how to source beautiful book animations and book graphics (utilizing your book cover images/pages).

I show you how to create book cover image and book review slides to further enhance the quality of your book trailer videos.


I show you how to craft animated GIFs, social media graphics and more.

In this course I will also show you how to source video footage clips, royalty free music, and hiqh quality images.

I recommend that you watch the videos in the order listed, then get started from step one onward--this will allow you to save time and money in creating as many book trailer videos as you can make time for, in a 30 day period. It is very likely you will be able to produce ten to thirty book trailers, at least.

So decide how many book titles you'd like to create book trailer videos for as you watch the video tutorials.

If you are an author or publisher, and want to learn how to create [inexpensive] high quality HD book trailer videos that can then be uploaded to as many video sharing sites as you wish, to 'get the word out' about your books, then this course may be right up your alley.

Who is the target audience?
  • This course is meant for authors, publishers and students who are not familiar with creating videos, nor how to quickly, easily and inexpensively source the components to create one's videos.
  • If you are accustomed to and wish to continue paying hundreds to thousands of dollars per book trailer video, then this course is probably not for you. This course explains how to source items that are less expensive and relatively easy to acquire/utilize, in order to create a multitude of book trailer videos, as quickly as one can; and at a reduced overall cost.

BOOK ANIMATION #2 – this option works well for the horror genre.

Note: I will be publishing a video tutorial for this type of book animation soon!

Visit this URL: www.fiverr.com/wengthemeng

Search for the listing labeled ‘I will make a SPINECHILLING trailer for your horror murder suspense eBook’ and click on it.

Click the video’s ‘play’ button to view the example; use that example to take notes about the short phrases you’d like for each line of text.

Place an order by clicking the green ‘Order Now’ button.

Currently, the video size/dimensions that this seller delivers for $5.00USD is 1080p HD (p stands for ‘pixels’ by the way) and the audio you hear in the demo is included.It will be delivered to you in 24 hours via MOV or MP4 format: specify MP4 format when you order.

Here is the text that was used for the Donut Death video he created. It may help you decide how long/short to write your script with:

Text 1: A Creepy Tale For Adults Only

Text 2: by author ADAM STRONG

Text 3: Available now at Amazon

Text 4: Bruno Tello is a mild-mannered

Text 5: middle-aged baker in a tiny town

Text 6: Mina and Tomas want a piece

Text 7: of what he's got

Text 8: Little does Bruno know

Text 9: his world is about to be

Text 10:hot-crossed, glazed...

Text 11: and JELLY-FILLED

Text 12: PNG book cover image was used here

Use the video he delivers to you, as a ‘standalone’ book trailer video, and, as an ‘insert’ in the video platform we will utilize.

I ended up laying text over the video, of the Amazon listing’s URL. This way, no matter what video sharing site it is uploaded to…the viewer always knows what to type into their browser, to go and buy the book.

Be sure to have a look at the other styles of videos that both of these creators offer, you may find that you want more than one style to use as standalone trailer videos, and as ‘inserts’ in your video creations.
