Huffington’s Best of 2010
Huffington Post has named 19 of the best and worst book trailers of the year.
The strange thing is that several of these aren’t really BOOK trailers, that is a video that promotes a book. One is an animation of a single sentence. Another is an Xtranormal animation of someone talking about wanting to write a novel, even though they never read novels. NOT a book trailer!
Watching these, I saw a couple trends. SUCK is the word of the year in book trailers. And trailer are still WAY too long. One minute, maybe 90 seconds and you should be done.
Here’s one of the few that I watched all the way through. (Maybe I should do a post on how long I watch a video until I click it off. My attention span is short, unless a video really captures me.) Near the end is a strange thing about the 1950s, but I did watch it all the way through.
What would YOU nominate for the BEST and WORST trailers of the year? Let’s make our own list.
