Okay, this is the third version of the trailer. I hope this is the final one, I need to start on trailers for individual books!

WOOT! This is AWESOME! I love the music... I have heard it before and I still love it.

Love the transition with the book covers... that is a great effect! And the sunset photo -- just glorious. :-)

(Don't know if my e-mail message got through to you, Aaron, but my e-mail's being boogery today... so it's not that I haven't been in touch!)

Sweet trailer!

By the way... I tagged you (on my blog), so...

Tag! You're it!

Oh, WOW. Just freaking wow. What a feast for the eyes and ears! It's beautiful. Melanie's voice is luscious, the art is sumptuous, everything is just so ... rich. I never realized before that it's your wife, Dale, on the cover of Upstaged. (I wish you would post the original, along with the photo of your handsome young mug here. There's only one little thing I think needs to be edited out - the part where you claim not to be talented. I've got tears in my eyes.
Great job, Aaron!

P.S. No wonder your girls want to stay home. If I lived like that, I'd want to stay home, too. In fact, can I move in? I promise to be very quiet, and I can help in the garden.

Beautiful, Aaron!
Just beautiful - a true symphony for the senses.

Thank you, S.W. - you were the inspiration for even TRYING this! I didn't know I could do it, but now I'm totally addicted, as you said I'd be!

Sorry I missed the tag - I've been swamped this weekend. ;o)

Val - thank you SO much. You know I'm nuts about your trailer, I keep coming back to it to listen and watch over and over again. You have wonderful artistic talent and the love just shines right through. The pictures of B. choke me up, big time, knowing what happened and how you feel... Hey - if you came to stay with us you would be better than having Siegfried and Mrs. Pierce in the household - you'd work hard, I know that! LOL.

Thank you, Jeanne! I can't wait 'til you make one up for your book, A Time for Every Purpose. I still think of it as "TEP." I had to stop and remember what TEP stood for for a minute! Duh.

Bravo on the revision, too. Sneezy really enjoyed it. I couldn't get YouTube to let me update mine. Did you have any problems with it?

Steve G said...

Really nice. I'm need to play around with one. I love the singing.

I've been working on one for my print book coming out, but I'm not very familiar with Movie Maker. The biggest trouble I have is finding royalty free material that I don't have to pay to use.

Hi, Val!

I didn't try to edit on YouTube, I just deleted the old one and uploaded the new one. Thanks for all your suggestions, by the way. You were a great help.

Steve - thanks! That's my daughter, Melanie, singing. So proud of my little girl! (okay, so she's 21 now...) LOL.

Zinnia - one of my good fortunes is having a passion for photography. It fits in well with my series and is free 'cause they're all mine! And of course, Melanie's recordings were those I paid for, so I own the rights. If you need any specific type photos, let me know. Mostly nature stuff, but perhaps something could fit? I'm happy to share.

Thanks, guys. Appreciate you taking the time to watch this!

Stop in for a bit...

Popping over on advice from Southern Writer. This is a beautiful trailer and also a lovely tribute to your family. Good luck with your promo.

Aaron Paul Lazar said...

Thank you, Marcail! I'll have to check out your blog, too. ;o)

The vocals were stunning. Gave me chills!

:o)

Aaron Paul Lazar said...

Thanks, Michele! I love that piece, love any Puccini, and of course I adore my daughter Melanie more than life itself. Put them together, and... well, here's what you get!
