Creating Creative Book Trailers the Easy Way, 2-Part Library Workshop
Looking for creative ways to engage your library patrons or students? Book trailers are powerful, short videos that can attract readers and nonreaders to a book. Like a movie trailer, book trailers take the best parts of the book but leave an open ending that can only be filled by reading it.
This two-part webinar workshop with librarian Naomi Bates explores the dynamics of book trailer creation from start to finish. Find out what you should think about before creating a book trailer, and learn about different types of trailers, the tools you need to create them, and Creative Commons sites you can use to make your own unique trailers ready to share in a variety of ways.
Just what is a book trailer? What do they look like, and why would you make them? We take you through the anatomy of a book trailer beginning with what you need to know before creating a book trailer, the different types of trailers that can be made, and the tools available to create them.
We talk about Creative Commons and tour the many sites that you can use to create your own book trailers. We also cover interesting ways to share your trailers for programs and library promotion.
