I’ve been trying to create a book trailer for my forthcoming book, The Mountains-to-Sea Trail Across North Carolina. It’s not easy. I have the computing tools but choosing the photos, the captions and the music is the difficult part. Where do people get all this free music or do they not worry about the royalty-free part?
So as a diversion, I looked at the MST videos on Youtube. What is actually out there now?
Sharon McCarthy’s Follow the White Dots is absolutely the best. She and her husband, Jim, put this together for a presentation. Maybe I should hire them. See
A woman who goes by the web name Bugshikes uploaded two videos on her MST hike. I have no idea what her name is. Maybe someone can figure it out. See
Our own Jeff Brewer, task force leader for the Falls Lake section, did a video introducing the MST and Friends of the MST. See
Margaret Dupont created a quiet video of the trail, probably for a class assignment. See
Super awesome, totally Rad did a section from Devils Garden Overlook off the Blue Ridge Parkway to Stone Mountain State Park talks into the camera while he’s walking a section of trail. I wish I knew what his name is. See
Lots of other hikers have videos about the trail. Some mountain bike sections (not on the footpath, please). Another went up to Rattlesnake Lodge with several dogs.
I thought I would do a review of all the MST videos but there are too many of them. Check them out on Youtube.
As for my original idea which was to work on a book trailer, these didn’t help at all. Anyone know anything about book trailers?
