We love book trailers and enjoy looking at different works. We’ve picked out our top 10 trailers for you and would like to explain why we think they are particularly well done.
Let’s start with this trailer for the book Everless by Sarah Holland. Here we are especially fascinated by the cinematic look and the detailed animations. This example shows very nicely what is possible with static animated images. In addition, the trailer evokes emotions, especially through the exciting voiceover.
Next, we’d like to introduce you to this trailer for the book White Smoke by Tiffany D. Jackson – a great example of a professionally produced trailer. The viewer gets an insight into who the main character is and the trailer leaves you wanting to read the book.
In this trailer, emotional images are used to hint at the book’s story without foreshadowing anything. After watching it, the viewer wants to know what happens next. The length of the book trailer is also very good, especially for sharing on social media.
Here’s an example of a very well done animated book trailer that shows how to breathe life into illustrations of a book. In addition, the narrator’s voice is very well chosen.
Two things are particularly well done in the trailer for the book Spirit Hunters by Ellen Oh. First, this trailer is a fantastic example of how an insane atmosphere can be created without a narrator. Secondly, the trailer impresses with very good timing in the editing and fitting text overlays.
The use of many effects makes this trailer very unique and shows how simple video footage can be upgraded. In addition, the background music was chosen very well and the length of the trailer is good.
The book trailer for House of Hollow by Krystal Sutherland shows how a good voiceover can draw the reader right into the action. In addition, the trailer is very unique due to the use of the TV and the news scenario.
The book trailer for “Jewels of Allah” by Nina Ansary is very special. It contains a surprising twist and generates attention. Emotions are aroused through faces and various personal stories.
This trailer is one of our favorites. You get an idea of what is going to happen in the book without anticipating anything. Especially the actor of the grandpa, who tells the story during the trailer, is very well chosen.
Lastly, we would like to share with you an example of a children’s book. We chose the trailer for the book “I am enough” by Grace Byers, because it shows very nicely how images from a book can be animated and used for a book trailer.
Don’t miss out on an innovative way of presenting your work. Your book deserves an amazing book trailer!
