Less is More: A Trailer with Restraint

ROOM by Emma Donoghue

A five-year-old boy—who’s lived his whole life in a single room—narrates this riveting story of the power of a mother’s love.
Told entirely in the language of the energetic, pragmatic five-year-old Jack, ROOM is a celebration of resilience and the limitless bond between parent and child, a brilliantly executed novel about what it means to journey from one world to another.

It’s refreshing to see restraint used in a book trailer. This has a very simple melody, like a music box tinkling and the action is just a boy drawing and coloring a picture of himself and his mother. The text is simple blurbs and a few choice words, written in a child-like font. Simple, spare, minimalistic–whatever you call it, it creates a delicious creepy feel. Definitely different and a winner.
