I had this idea to create a book trailer after Diane Lockward posted one on the WOMPO poetry listserve. I couldn’t stop thinking about how it would help put a face to a book, the way movie trailers give a thumbnail of the film. I talked about it to all my close tec people and gathered pix and video clips, then finally we were ready and Shabda put the ideas together on imovie. Here it is –– 4 minutes with a soundtrack mostly by Hamza El Din and even some spoken word. I think this will be useful as the Publisher and publicist get ready to send UNTOLD out into the world of bookstores, etc….
