How To Build an Awesome Video Trailer For Your Blog

This is a guest post by Logan Marshall.

“Do I really have to film this? It’s so stupid!”

I’m 12 years old and perched on the top of my parent’s minivan like James Bond. My best friend Willie stands below me. Holding a video camera. His head cocked to one side in a look of amused bewilderment.

“What?” I reply, “YES you have to film this! Watch me, it’s gonna be SICK!

Determined to showoff my newfound parkour ability, I spring from the hood like a FELINE TIGER NINJA. Soaring through the air, I complete a triple backflip, drink a gallon of pure maple syrup, grow a full beard and construct a complete architectural model of Manhattan, all before landing oh-so gently on my feet.

Yeah, that didn’t happen.

What actually happened probably looked more like this.

Anyhoo, as you can probably guess from the story above, (in addition to having a delusional sense of my own coolness) I’ve always wanted to create an epic video. Something that would blow people away. Make them take notice.

I made valiant attempts with Insane Flip, Insane Juggling and Tomato Head Shot… but never really hit the cinematic nail on the head.

Until now.
