“Hatchet” Book Trailer

Concept, design and editing work for a Scholastic book trailer.

Creating a book trailer for the classic young adult novel Hatchet was an interesting challenge, as most of the book trailers we have made are for brand new books. It was fun to give the same treatment to an older story. After writing the script with an animated treatment in mind, we determined that a realistic approach using video footage would be more exciting for young readers. Telling the story with drone footage, stock video and visual effects, plus an overlay of 70’s style film treatment, made for a unique and interesting book trailer.
