Book Trailer Red Carpet Premiere

Asylum book trailer. Now playing.

Theater curtain for book trailer announcement.

We’re ready for the premiere showing of Asylum, a dark suspense saga

I’ve been wanting to produce an Asylum trailer for a year. When I saw the excellent trailer an author friend had produced for her book, I could procrastinate no longer. I contacted her video producer, Jerome McLain. We talked about my book’s genre, plot, and characters.

To give him a better feel for the story, I provided reference photos I had collected, a few appear in this post. The original goal was :30 (that means thirty seconds, I learned), but Asylum‘s two timelines needed more … well, time. We agreed we needed 1:00 to tell the story.

Over several weeks, I reviewed film clips, tightened the script, and listened to music and talent for voiceover. I liked that Jerome had narrowed dozens of options to a few spot-on selections from which to choose. Then I left the editing process in his hands and he wowed me.

I’m probably not the easiest client because with my graphics background as a designer and art director, I know what I want and I’m a perfectionist. Several times I had to pull back and tell myself, nothing is absolutely perfect. Great will have to do.

Cheryl’s Book Nook Blog Talks Asylum

Talking Asylum with Kathryn Orzech at Cheryl’s Book Nook blog.

Asylum book review and author interview at Cheryl’s Book Nook, a place to learn about the latest and upcoming books, contests, author interviews, book reviews, and all around fun.

Maggie may have been a naïve young girl when she was sent to the asylum but by the end, she was a strong woman.

It is scary to think of the abuse that people in power take advantage of the people that they are suppose to help. As I got further into the story, it picked up more speed and got darker with some twists. The location of Connecticut was the perfect backdrop for this story.

Asylum Review at Cheryl's Book Nook

Cheryl’s Book Nook Talks Asylum with Kathryn Orzech

I like the images Cheryl chose to supplement the interview, asylums, the New England countryside. I especially love the shot of Downton castle and 1970’s fashion, trust me, the ’70s never looked so good. The pictures are worth a quick visit.

Cheryl’s Book Nook is a beautifully organized and designed blogspot, very clean. Kudos to Cheryl. I’m grateful to have been invited. Stop by to see the pictures, review and interview, and join the discussion with your comment.
