Here’s my simple and direct approach at a book trailer in support of my new graphic novel, George’s Run: A Writer’s Journey Through The Twilight Zone, published by Rutgers University Press.
George’s Run is an inspiring and informative book about the golden age of television, specifically the heady late ’50s and early ’60s which gave us The Twilight Zone and Star Trek. This is a story about storytelling and I want folks to know about it. Necessity is the mother of invention and that led me to create this book trailer. Not bad, huh? I love the sketchbook-comes-to-life vibe. With the book trailer, I went back to the roots of this book which has always been a heart-felt effort to be in tune with the reader. This is a story about a regular guy who ends up doing extraordinary things. While George’s life gathers complexity over time, and the interconnections can get pretty involved, the core of this story is as simple and direct as the value of chasing your dreams, going against the odds.
