Book Trailer

For the last month or so I’ve been rabbiting away on a secret little side project. It took many hours, much experimentation, some laughter, a little cursing, and the learning of an entire new computer program. But mostly it was a lot of fun, as it involved watching one of my little characters come to life. And today I’m ready to release it.

To celebrate the upcoming launch of Squish Rabbit in Australia (29th August), check out the video below if you want a sneaky peek of my first ever book trailer:

Or you can watch in on Vimeo here.

A huge thanks to the amazing musician Richard Grantham for the score, and also to my publishers (UQP and Viking / Penguin) for their support.

Hope you like it…

      Thanks Tina! Had a ball making it. In the end I wasn’t just responsible for the animation … embarrassingly enough, I couldn’t source a decent wind sound effect, so had to make it myself! Yes, that is me blowing into the microphone…

    I played your trailer and within minutes my little 2 year old was sitting on my knee and bopping to the music, pointing to ‘that wabbit’! He may not be on the shelves yet but he’s already winning heart in Oz.
