Letting Go by Anthony L. Awtrey
This trailer isn’t as visually engaging as some, but still stands above your average slideshow trailer. Its strongest asset is the small excerpt read over the images: we’re presented with a compelling vignette that hints at murder or some other foul play, letting imagination run wild.
The trailer for Letting Go exhibits how good storytelling can be the star: if you don’t have fancy footage or an animation budget, focusing on particularly juicy prose with a good soundtrack can get the job done and evoke the mood you’re going for. After all, it’s the story that you want your readers to buy!
