Angel's Den book promo film
This is a book promo for a historical fiction novel. Much of the story takes place on the Lewis and Clark trail, and involves the journal they kept along the way so I tried to tie those elements in visually. The graphics were created with layered photoshop files and camera moves in After Effects.
For the titles I wanted to try and give it that Masterpiece Theater vibe.
When I create these I'm usually given an unedited manuscript and maybe some marketing copy. It's usually the manuscript that gives me good ideas for the copy points that become the titles for the piece. The visuals are usually created from stock photographs that I modify in Photoshop, or if I can't find something suitable I'll go out and shoot things myself.
The fabulous music is by Eric Haddad.
