“Kill the Boy Band” Book Trailer

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

For this YA book trailer, our client wanted an animated silhouette approach that revealed the darkly comical nature of the story. The book centers around four superfan friends who accidentally kidnap a member of their favorite boy band, so we set the video in a concert scene where the main characters take center stage. We used Cinema 4D to get the exciting concert lighting and glow effects, with a little enhancement in After Effects. The sound mix was very important to get right, so we combined custom voice over recording with stock music and sound effects to create a soundtrack that drove the piece.
