Create A Book Trailer


Book trailers are generally created by publishers to evoke interest and excitement in a new book. They work like movie previews. You will work in groups and use iMovie to create a Book Trailer on either "Night" or "The Pigman".

Step 1: Choose a Book

Night by Elie Weisel

The Pigman by Paul Zindel

Step 2: Setting the Stage

Setting the Stage

Creating a book trailer involves multiple steps. The first step is to create a visual representation, or storyboard, of the video that you hope to produce. The storyboard will help you clarify and organize your topic and ideas. Use one of the following storyboard templates to create a plan for your trailer.

Picture Note Making

Photo Finish

Filming the Ideas

*Have Mrs. Whitt check your storyboard before moving on to the next step.

Step 3: Making Your Trailer

Open iMovie and preview the variety of trailers that it has to offer. Choose the one that will best fit with your ideas.

Begin recording and producing your video trailer.
