Behind the Illustrated Book Trailer: Once Upon a Time Machine
Editor Andrew Carl chatted with the fine folks at About.com about how the wonderful animated trailer for Once Upon a Time Machine came together, as part of their series of advice on how to market one’s book online.
The OUaTM trailer was also featured and discussed briefly in this more general About.com article, Tips to Producing An Effective Online Book Trailer.
Let’s enjoy that trailer again, shall we?
Animation, of course, by the fantastic Lance Erlick.
Look at this beauty!
Huge, endless thanks to Lance Erlick for spending countless hours perfecting the animation of so many wonderful artists’ work. It’s almost hard to believe that this stuff wasn’t originally made to move.
I recommend watching in HD (720p or up) to really get the most out of everyone’s work.
And in case anyone needs reminding: Once Upon a Time Machine hits comic shops everywhere NEXT WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 10!
So get those comic-buyin’ hats ready to go!
Weshoyot Alvitre did a beautiful job bringing a Cinderella into the space age for her pinup. In fact, she may just have given us the prettiest snapshot of future fashion in the book.
Check out Cinderella’s progression from early pencils, to a touch of inks, to the final inked page.
One of our favorite colorists (and all-round favorite guys), Lance Erlick, colored Weshoyot’s pinup…but you’re going to have to wait for the book to see the magic he brought to the page!
