Okay, this morning I got the rough cut of the book trailer. Most people seem to hate the sight of themselves in three dimensions, and I’m including myself in that, but I think it’s pretty good, despite the snaggle-toothed, bookish ape in most of the frames.
I still can’t show it to you (sorries to Annabel Candy, who has been howling for it), but here’s what I can say.
The music makes it sound likes it’s going to be a Tim Burton film. Tim? Tim, are you reading this?
They condensed a ton of footage into something pretty snappy. I’m glad it’s not my job to edit anything digitally.
My teeth are pretty chipped.
A few people that I’ve shown it to have said my voice has a “nice sound.”
Depending on the angle, I have more/less hair than I pictured.
My best scar has been covered with TV makeup.
My hands look really big.
I lumber. In my head I’m an elegant cross between a panther and a ballerina. But I lumber around.
60d nails look pretty big, even though they’re easy to bend.
I mean what I say in the video.
My library is beautiful.
I should be able to show it to you “soon-ish,” which is publishing speak for…well, I’m not sure, I’ll let you know. In the meantime, please enjoy this blurry photo of me not falling down while roller skating.
