THE BIG FAT BIG SLICK BOOK TRAILER CONTEST
So, here’s another one.
It would make for a great project for high-school classes and teen library groups (and it has a really really cool prize):
ANNOUNCING: THE BIG FAT BIG SLICK BOOK TRAILER CONTEST
I don’t yet have a book trailer and my MySpace page is looking really drab, so here’s the deal: Submit a video book trailer for my novel, BIG SLICK, by the deadline and the best one wins! I won’t put any constraints on the trailer (length, content, etc) other than that it has to do a good job at promoting BIG SLICK, sort of like a teaser or a commercial would. Professional quality, depth of knowledge of the book, capturing the mood of the novel & characters, and “teaser” qualities will all be factors in the judging. In addition to myself, two professional video producers will be rating the videos. In the event of more than one trailer really hitting the mark, I will put the decision to popular vote right here on my blog!
CONTEST DEADLINE: March 1st, 2008
SUBMISSION RULES: When you have completed your video trailer contact me via my website (www.ericluper.com) and I will give you the email address to which you need to send the electronic file.
FABULOUS PRIZES: For those of you who don’t yet know, my second novel is a horseracing story set in 1934
To help get this contest out into the world, I ask that you post about it on your own blog, website, vlog or whatever. If you notify me via my website (www.ericluper.com) with a link or some other proof that you’ve promoted THE BIG FAT BIG SLICK BOOK TRAILER CONTEST you’ll be entered into a random drawing to name a horse in the novel* as well!
How cool is that?
So, get going and bring this contest to the attention of any aspiring movie makers you might know! As I said earlier, it would make a great project for high-school classes and teen library groups--especially those really cool teen libraries that have all that movie editing software and whatnot!
* All horse names are subject to approval by the author for appropriateness and the author cannot guarantee your horse winning, placing or showing in a race, or for that matter making it through the race alive!
