I'm not really fond of book trailers. I find most of them to be klunky and amateurish and full of bad acting or weird lighting or generally non-professional-looking stuff.
(I majored in film and theatre. I'm a little snobbish about total amateurs basically making an ad. It's a character flaw. Try to forgive me, okay?)
Thanks to Cat Gerlach, whose blog can be found HERE, I have found a winner!
This is suspenseful. It is professionally done, in every way: acting, script, lighting, editing, music, etc. And I AM DYING TO READ THE BOOK NOW.
This is the standard to which we should hold ourselves when creating book trailers, people. Behold: the trailer for MISS PEREGRINE'S HOME FOR PECULIAR CHILDREN.
Don't you all want to run out and get it now?!? I know I do!
SO, you tell me, since I typically don't seek out book trailers: what good ones have you seen lately? What else have I missed?
