I recently read this novel and was just amazed by it, probably one of my favorite books of all time.. After reading it (and as I was) I got to thinking about the endless movies possibilities for this novel. I think if done right and with a big enough budget, it can be an amazing film. Anyway, I thought I would give it a shot and put together a little movie trailer myself. Its not much, but if you're a fan of the novel you might enjoy it…plus there aren't many fan made trailers for this novel that I have seen, yet.
Some details :
The shots of Dallas and the book depository where actually filmed on location just after I took the 6th floor tour, which was amazing btw I highly recommend it if you live close by.
The other shots were just make shift, and sadly there is no "Al's Diner" anywhere near where I live so I couldn't any shots of a diner with that name unfortunately : /
Voiceovers where done by myself, with some audio effects added.
Shot with a Canon 5d mark iii
Animations done in After Effects.
Let me know what you think…I may make a 2nd one with actual actors in it (myself lol). Would love to get some shots of the yellow card man, or of Al Templeton talking to Jake..
Also if any of you have made a trailer for this novel already please post a link here, would love to check them out!
