First Daughter 2 Book Trailer / Take One

Once again, I play around with Quicktime, iMovie, Creative Commons, and public domain music downloads from CNET to come up with a free homemade book trailer for First Daughter: White House Rules (Dutton, January 2008). Hey, necessity's the mother of invention, and I didn't see a line of pros begging to make a trailer for me, so I threw the word "tacky" out of mind and ventured forth.

Here's the first take, with my own voice doing the audio. Our high school's drama star (who's my bud) has agreed to record the final narration. I'd love some feedback from my Fire Escape visitors as I move to a more polished version.

Mitali,
If you have a high school drama star at your disposal, see if she can get some other drama lovers to act out your book into a mini-movie with Sameera narrating in the background.

I bet they would have alot of fun with it!
