Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi
These are two contrasting trailers for the same book, both created by harper teen, thererfore both official. Which one do you prefer and why? Personally, I prefer the first. I love the effects of the words shattering. It is a very good symbol for the book. This makes it more dramatic I also appreciate having a narrator instead of reading it myself. I know this sounds really lazy considering how much I actually like reading, but this allows me to focus on the special effects that have been implemented.
The Iron Knight
It had a bit of reading, but I think the pacing and typography and its effects was such that this was alright. Another issue is that the wrong kind of voice could have ruined an otherwise good trailer. It also allows watchers to concentrate more on the music, which was eerie at the beginning and magical throughout. The trailer got the message across and it definitely felt like a journey, what with the different images that are shown. Having re-watched it after reading it, I can now imagine that those stars as The End of The World. It was informative, without spoiling anything.
Also, I love how Grimalkin was included, all lazy and somehow wise at the same time. Please feel free to discuss what you thought, especially Mab. I hadn’t imagined her to look Asian, but they did it here, and she looks positively frosty. Perfect.
