FanFic Trailers

Post by Jen24 » Fri Feb 22, 2008 2:06 am

Just wondering if their is a way to create a thread for people to post trailers they've written for their fics? Is that even something that folks would be interested in doing?

I really like watching movie trailers as it gives me a clue as to whether or not it's a movie I want to see. Same for fics. Think it might be a cool idea. :D

Anyone else think so?

I agree! :D As long as someone has a good set of video editing skill, making a trailer for a fanfiction is a good way to demonstrate what the story is about. However, a good summary could much more telling than a trailer. I think it's the matter of the individual taste and the accesibility of clips.

Oh my gosh, I would love this idea. It seems that, with the Youtube phenomenon of recent years, a lot more people are making fanfic trailers. They're really cool to make and to view and are often a really good way of telling what might happen in a fic while, at the same time, not giving away too much detail. I've made about 5 of them myself, I think! :D

Oh, great topic. Here is my favorite trailer for the fic "Passion", by April : it's "Passion", by Rod Stewart (fitting).
