This was as close to a perfect trailer as is possible, in my opinion. And it reminded me of that TV show where celebrities track their ancestors. Everything worked. The music is evocative but not intrusive. The use of black and white footage creates a sense of the past, even though the scenes all come from the present. The Voice Over and the dialogue were also just right, and the questions asked made me, as the viewer, wanting to know the answers. It all finished with a perfect call to action.
If I had to find any weakness, it was probably in the shots where quotes from reviews were used. They were too short for me to really take in the information, which is a pity.
I must admit that, after watching this trailer, I considered purchasing a video camera to take my own footage, because it could easily have been done that way. We never see faces, so any of us could have called on friends and family to walk through those scenes. But that is far too ambitious for me, I decided reluctantly, especially as I like to keep my prices low, and putting this together would have to be expensive and incredibly time-consuming.
By the end, even though I am not a reader of non-fiction for pleasure, I was left considering making an exception for this book. If you feel the same way, why not check it out here: Ignoring Gravity
