I love that books are getting the full blown media treatment. Â It makes sense that if you’re going to put the time and effort and money into a project, that you would work to create all sorts of support material. Â Just because books are a low-tech entertainment medium, doesn’t mean that they can’t have a high-tech marketing campaign. Â If you’ve got a story that you want the world to know about, the best thing to do is to create a shareable media package like a video or a wallpaper, or print image, and then put it on the net. Â Remember the awesomeÂ Missle Mouse Comic? Â So with that said, I’m doing my part to promote a project that I think is pretty cool (and not JUST because it reminds me of the fantasticÂ shadow boxesÂ that I make). Â Go and check out the video trailer promoting the new Millennium Falcon book from Scholastic. It was written by Ryder Windham and includes art by Chris Trevas and Chris Reiff and the video features the Keeper of the Holocron himself,Â Leland Chee.
And while we’re on the subject, you should also check out this video for the Jedi Path by Dan Wallace and Illustrated by Jeff Carlisle, Chris Reiff, and Chris Trevas.by
