A new iMovie Trailer…

2 Dec

…for Healthy, Healthy. Love, Love, Love!

As usual, I’m probably late to the party. For the first time ever, I’ve created a movie trailer. Woo-hoo! Yep, I used iMovie’s “Retro” template to create a trailer for my latest book, Healthy, Healthy: Love, Love, Love.

Making the Trailer

If you’ve never messed around with iMovie’s trailer templates, oooh, you are missing out. Treat yourself! Adding images and tinkering with the text is fairly intuitive; I only had to ask Google one or two questions. Not bad. And results are instant, which is always gratifying. It took me about a day and a half to finish this trailer. Next time might be a little bit quicker, now that I know my way around, but realistically, between gathering all of the images and editing, editing, editing… if you’re making a trailer to promote an actual product, expect it to take at least a day.

True to form, I got overly excited and posted to YouTube a bit too soon. After this trailer went live I continued editing it a bit. The edited version is better, but I had already shared the YouTube link with my publisher. So… the YouTube version, linked above, will live forever. This is helping me with another hobby of mine: accepting personal mistakes and imperfections with grace. (Making iMovie trailers is easier, ha.)

YouTube

In coming months I hope to create more video content for my YouTube channel, including tutorials for kids. Would you like that? Let me know, and stay tuned. Move video content coming soon! Meanwhile, if you’d like to check out the videos I’ve posted over the years, click here. Be sure to follow my channel, so you won’t miss the good stuff that will be coming.

Get the book

I’m super excited about this new little board book for toddlers and will post much more about it soon, but for now, here are the basics:
