music and the trailer

Creating trailers is like any other art project-- the ideas never end for what might be done and how I can improve them. In this case it's the music that came along and gave me an option I had missed earlier to make this video closer to the feeling of the book. It came about by chance.

A friend was asking how to make JewelBeat work as she wants to add music to her own videos. As I was verbally trying to walk her through it, I thought it'd be easier if I was looking at music.  In the search box, I wrote Native American (something I thought I had done before but must not have) and came across some wonderful music which could be useful both for extended trailers, the short zippy ones, and slide shows of scenery when the terrain fits.

To me, music is a critical part of creating these trailers and finding the right notes is always a challenge. I think this one is it now. Other than the music, I changed nothing else. See what you think for Hidden Pearl--

That looks and sounds good! Let's see how others rate it and how well it does on

I am not that sure that trailers actually help sell books. But I enjoy doing them as part of the whole process. I've been creating some lately that will be linked at the end of the books and only for those who already purchased and read them. They will be the images that inspired me in the book. One will be for From Here to There and not go public anywhere. It'll be a link that readers can access. Another is for a book that isn't even out yet and won't be until the fall. I have learned in creating that one that a trailer actually is inspirational to me as I go through the editing process.

I have also been feeling that the music created for these trailers by JewelBeat is actually better with them than using something off my CD collection. I didn't think that would be the case but when I knew I could use something for a private video, I actually preferred one from JewelBeat-- although I may use something from my CD for that fall book. I couldn't put it onto YouTube but don't need to when it's only available as a link and on Picasa. So far anyway :)
