Make a Book Trailer

In this project, you’re going to motivate students to read a book you like by making a trailer for it. You know how when you go to see a movie in a theater, they show you previews for upcoming movies? You’re going to do that for a book.

The one thing you need to keep in mind is you need to choose a book with a lot of pictures.

Step One – Pick your theme and figure out how many pictures you’re going to need

Step Two – Take a lot of pictures of the book’s illustrations

Use the camera app on an iPad. Make sure you’re in a well lit area. Try to hold the iPad straight – use one of the edges of the book to help you. Try to get as close as you can to the page and still get the whole picture.

Step Three – Edit the pictures

Step Four – Put the trailer together in iMovie

Step Five – Adjust iMovie photos
