Paradox: Creating a Video Trailer
Behind the Scenes of Writing a Book Part 3
Today's topic is a special feature, behind the scenes look at writing a novel. This post features a very short video preview of the book. (Bonus points if you find the Easter Egg!)
As weird as it might sound to those of us who live on the written word, the video work ends up catching more eyes and captures the attention. Matt Madonna has been the brains behind the artwork, and he put together this video trailer.
Don’t underestimate the power of multi-media to capture the eyes for your actual writing. It’s not easy and I find I’d rather just write, but sometimes a different medium can change the way you communicate things.
This is one reason why I record voice-overs for all my Sunday Essays because I find it helps me catch issues in my writing that I miss in text alone. Hearing the words sometimes matters as much as reading them. At a minimum, it’s a different framing.
I hope you enjoy it and let me know your thoughts in the comments!
There’s been interest expressed in more behind the scenes insights into writing so I may do this as a mid-week supplement throughout the year.
