I am IN LOVE with this book trailer for PIVOT. And it was such an intriguing process to have input on the trailer itself. Several of the clips I myself chose, and the woman who represents Jack is just so perfect. I think the most interesting thing I learned about creating a book trailer is the sliding scale between literally representing the book and getting the feel right and “baiting the hook.” If the hook perfectly represents the book, and the feel represents the book, then one can slide away from literalness. I have to say, though, that this book trailer does a pretty good job of capturing both literal and atmospheric elements. It’s just so awesome!
