"Fiction is the purest art. Commercial fiction is the butter, the darkest chocolate, and the finest malt. That's why we are so addicted to it."--Angie Brooksby-Arcangioli
Wow! Totally amazing. And yeah I know thats a cliche response but I was blown away. Best book trailer EVER! Indigo
That's the sort of provocative, eye-catching advertising that North American publishers seem to be missing.The only time I see a book advertised on television is the occasional announcement that James Patterson & Co. plopped out another tome. With none of the visual drama and excitement the New Zealanders delivered.
“Where books come to life.”Terrific! Way to go New Zealand Book Council. Thanks for sharing.
Janet,I did as you told me... and I'm glad I did. I feel just like that every time I open up a new [or old] book!Thanks for sharing!
Have mercy! This is amazing. Thanks.
Wow, that was fun. Excuse me while I get greedy and go back for more.
That's really cool! Somebody should make something like it in English. ;)
I want to see "The Making of the GOING WEST book trailer" when it's up. Now that was two minutes well-spent.
Yow! That's a beautiful piece of design work. I particularly liked the last 3 seconds.
Wow. How'd they DO that? It felt almost like a theme park ride. (Wish I didn't have to listen so hard because I'm not too familiar with the NZ accent.)
Was I supposed to understand what he was saying? I didn't.Visually stunning, but he read too fast and the music was too loud.
I love this. I have to get some books down from the shelf, show it to them and see if they can do it too.
Beautiful. So sorry for those who couldn't understand the words. The combination of words, sounds, animation was thrilling.
That was awesome! Thank you for sharing what should be an award-winning book trailer/promo.
I sort of like it a lot, but the book mutilation makes physically impossible for me to enjoy it.
great bit of animation... hope they butchered a crappy book! ;) lol
Wow!- very awesome.
Wow, that's fabulous! Thanks for sharing it.
Another wee gem. Thanks for this Janet Ray
Wow, so cool. My brother used to make Christmas cards that had similar pop ups and he said took forever just for one cut-out. Thanks for sharing.xxAM
That was incredible! Thanks for posting it!
Beautiful animation. *love*
So beautiful...I wonder how on earth they did that?? Thanks for sharing this, Janet!
Holy shit! Those Kiwi's are, like, crazy good! I want them to do my book trailer!
That was so COOL!!!!
Very cool! Thank you for sharing that. The amount of time and effort that must have gone into that staggers me. Just imagining the their excitement as it came together has me excited in turn.
If that was a real book - going west - I'd buy it. I'm intrigued. I've seen a few "book trailers" on U-tube and thought they were awesome. Thanks for sharing this. It was great...........dhole
It's even better quality on the website- http://andersenm.com/This is so cool!
Janet:I really enjoy your blog and the helful insights you disclose. Not sure if you can accept, but I gave you the Humane Award over at my blog...........dhole
As a New Zealander I'm really proud :)
Utterly creative and stunning! It stops you in your tracks. Not easy to come up with things that will do that. Thanks for the link!!
Let's see an e-book reader do that. Stunning.
That was just amazing. Thanks for sharing.
Wow. Whoever came up with that is brilliant. I didn't have time to read all the comments, but I don't think you're supposed to be able to understand what he is saying. I love the format. Brilliant, plain and simple.
Amazing idea. The 'animation' had me hooked.Would've been even better if I had gained the slightest idea of what the book was about.
That was incredible! Although I had difficulty understanding what was being said, I was thrilled and wanted to read the book. Thank you so much for posting it. ~ YayaYaya's Changing World
Well done. Bravo! I've never seen it animated before, but here are some stills you might like to see.
