The author’s desire for this book trailer was to create a video that remained true to the core story within the book, and visually reflected the tone & themes of that story. In this case, the two key components of the book were those of love and religion.
In keeping with the minimalist, visually vague approach that we wanted to pursue, we focused on just a few key elements. The background visuals, the text, music, and voices. A simple cornfield reflected the themes central to the book, with subtle light ray animation for continued visual interest.
Carefully scripted text introduces the basis for the story, and snippets of an actor and actress voicing key lines add “color” to the trailer.
