I love trying new things. I love telling stories. I love working with different mediums. That’s how I started writing in the first place and how I came to make a book trailer for THE CASQUETTE GIRLS.
One of my favorite aspects of making the trailer was watching figments of my imagination turn into tactile objects. Whenever our production designer, Matt Whittle, would text me questions like “Okay, what does the altar at Vodou Pourvoyeur look like in your head?” I’d get really excited. First I’d send him any actual description from the book, and then he’d really dig into my head, “Tell me everything.” After I garbled everything out, I’d get a text a couple days later like, “Is a complete cat skeleton overkill?”
To find out the answer, watch the trailer!
I’d love to know what you think! Feel free to drop a line in the comments, and check out these behind the scenes photos from the set as well.
