My Book Trailers

Yesterday I spent some time making a book trailer for Lemur Troops & Critter Groups. Mind you, I'm no filmmaker and it's not very good, but it's a start. I made it using PhotoShop Elements 8, which I barely know how to open, more or less know how to use. By some miracle, it not only worked, but I was able to upload it to You Tube. Here it is ...

After I finished it, I decided to mess about with my old trailer for A New Job for Dilly. I found out that was impossible because we had changed PS programs since making it. In addition, Facebook refused to let me keep it up because of copyright issues with the song. You Tube took the music off as well. I was trying to get permission from the person who owns the rights to the song, but it's been more trouble than it's worth. So, I changed the trailer and used a different song. Here it is ...

I have edited this post since doing it originally because I change the trailers again. So, instead of posting them directly, I'm putting up links instead. Who knows ... maybe I'll get better at this with time.


  1. Making those trailers is harder than it looks! I know. I've tried my hand at them, too. Yours are fun. Keep at it!

  2. What a great idea! I think you did a good job, looks excellent!

  3. Cool Rena! Someday I want to learn how to do that....

  4. Better with time? You're quite good now. Good luck with your book, Roland

  5. I love your trailers. I'm looking forward to making one some day. I'm very anxious to start working on my story with the publisher, but I guess I need patience.

  6. Great job on both trailers Rena!
