“Shadow House” Book Trailer

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

For the book trailer for “Shadow House,” a middle-grade ghost story novel, we were provided with some great scary source material. The book contains many creepy illustrations that we were able to use to create our video. Starting on the foggy exterior of the old mansion, we go inside into the desaturated world of the photographs, where things are not as they seem. Using mostly After Effects, enhanced with some Cinema 4D camera mapping to allow us to move through the still photos, as well as particle effects, we added spooky atmosphere to the images of Shadow House.
