Last month, we shared our first in-house efforts at a children’s book trailer — for Eileen Spinelli and Giuliano Ferri’s picture book Jonah’s Whale. This morning, we debut our first book trailer for an adult book: John Suk’s Not Sure: A Pastor’s Journey from Faith to Doubt.
Author John Suk first appeared on this blog last August with his guest post “I Wish I Could Be Afraid.” Later, when Suk visited Grand Rapids in December, we were fortunate to have the opportunity to film and post a video interview with him (part one, part two).
Not being the sort of folks to waste good film footage if we can help it, we’ve been experimenting with Suk’s video interview ever since, using it to try and learn what is for us still a brave new medium: the YouTube book trailer.
Having finally come up with something we regard as somewhat decent (or, at least, something mildly superior to any of our earlier attempts), we are sharing it with you today. Take a look, and let us know what you think in the comments.
