A Book Trailer for REQUIEM FOR THE ORCHARD

***

It took me a couple of days to sync up the subtitles and the voice-over, but I finally decided this was a pretty good draft for my first attempt.

 

I used iMovie and Garage Band on my iMac to make this movie. I basically used personal footage from a walk through the woods with my son.


I hope you like it.

Wow, well done! Though I do have to admit that early on I thought this was footage of Bigfoot lol. The poem was moving and real.
