Hi everyone! I’m really excited to share with you the promotional trailer for THE QUEEN OF CROWS e-book. I’ve been blogging a little bit about the process to create this trailer over at VioletWar.com. One thing that I talked about, was the decision we had to make about the authenticity of the music. Here’s a quote:
The first thing we did was listen to various sounds and whatnot to decide what the feel of the music should be. Did I want the composition to be dramatic and tense or smooth and understated? Did I want an authentic, Native American feel or an inspired take on the music?
We decided that an inspired, more dramatic and textured take on the music was the way to go. We were both able to find some sound effects (Yes, that’s right! I said sound effects!) that will work well with the images and clips in the trailer. While I wanted the music to give you a Native American feel, I felt that it wouldn’t be a good idea to go the historical route for several reasons. — SOURCE: 2010.07.11 Setting Music to the Trailer
The music was composed by James Semple, a professional in the entertainment industry. In addition to his work in film, he also has composed soundtracks perfect for gaming including Four Shadows: Music for Trail of Cthulhu and Dissonance: Music for Esoterrorists.
Without further adieu, I hope you enjoy this trailer. We both had a lot of fun creating it and I’m pretty pleased with the results.
