Formulaic Trailer 101

I am currently working on my book trailer with (it just so happens) my brother who is a motion graphics person and a director (useful).

The trailer is going to be less than two minutes (possibley less than one) and already I've learned huge amount about reveals and sound and visual impact ... which I will share with you when we're done.

Meanwhile, I saw this hilarious take on the indisputably formulaic nature of trailers on Sarah McIntyre's twitter feed!


  1. LOVE this trailer, Candy. Thanks!

  2. I loved this - so funny and so TRUE!

  3. the other thing that's funny is that it's sooo long! like real trailers.
