The Messenger of Myris Dar: Watch the Epic Trailer for Book One

Updated: Jan 23



I recently finished this book trailer for The Messenger From Myris Dar, Book one of The Stone Guardians.


Finding interesting ways to create a moving teaser for the characters and themes in the book was a challenge. I am a photoshop newb and each time I undertake the process of creating content like this, I have a steep learning curve to under-go... Lots of time spent watching You Tube tutorials and researching how to create the effects I am after.


As always with self publishing, the iterations of the books themselves as well as the marketing content are always evolving. Next I need to learn how to make the sparks animate so they move throughout the video, at least in some slides.


Here are a few of the still images I worked on to try and convey the atmosphere and energy I was after. The music is a huge part: it is from Monument Studios Fantasy Complete series.


The trailer is almost there, but not exactly what I was after... so there will be a 2.0 version of the trailer at some point soon. But as they say in marketing better to ready, fire and aim then spend forever perfecting and never getting it out!


Overall I am fairly pleased with the outcome of the piece.


I hope you enjoy this short video. Please feel free to leave a comment or

your thoughts. What do the images and music evoke for you?
