Machinima Book Trailers for Toy Soldier

Posted on December 9, 2011 at 7:05 AM

I have found myself afflicted with writer's block as it heads deep into December, and I will be spending a great deal of effort in getting caught up on those 30 000 words i am supposed to do this month.  However, I have not been idle.  In the interests of breaking the writer's block and keeping inspired, I have created a series of machinma (meaning: constructed using footage from video games and movies like video games) "book trailers" in the hopes of encouraging more of you to read the books.  It worked; some difficulties with plot intentions that I was struggling with have been overcome by ideas that came to me as I was combing through potential footage.

I made two trailers for the first book; my first attempt really is more of a teaser than anything.  The other four sort of outline the story.  They might be considered spoilers by some, so I'll leave it up to you.

 

Here they are in the order I created them:

Enjoy!  Comments appreciated.  Ideally, these should make you feel the story and want to read the books.  Please tell me if they do, though constructive criticism is welcome as well.

 

Blessed be,

Sable
