I admit fully that my trilogy, “The Chosen One of Allivar” was inspired by “The Lord of the Rings”, “The Hobbit” and “The Silmarillion”. Put all three of these stories together and you can dream for the remainder of your lifetime. When I completed writing my trilogy I went into the process of creating the digital advertising including book trailers. I had placed on a to-do list to eventually combine the book trailers into a single “super” book trailer. This was due in part to the super trilogy movie trailer of “The Lord of the Rings”.
Although I don’t have millions of bucks to pour into production, the goal of my trilogy book trailer is still to draw attention and excitement to the story. To accomplish this I need powerful wording, some moving imagery and music. “The Lord of the Rings” super trailer brings us back to the story again and again. It recalls our feelings for the characters we read about as children, studied in college and watched on the big screen.
It is my hope that some day my trilogy will grace the silver screen too. I recall observing people who attended all the movies and their reactions. Many tried to hold back tears and crying, they cheered, they shouted “no” when a beloved character found death or pain, they whimpered, and eventually stood and clapped. They never wanted it to end and even remained seated until the very last credit rolled by.
Even though “The Lord of the Rings” is a fantasy story, it still holds truths of being mortal and the need to live in a free and pure world, where people will reconcile their differences and come to the aid of their fellow man. I admit as a man, the Charge of the Rohirrim was my most emotional scene. Comrades knowing they will not see another sunrise, yet rushing into battle to death for the right cause is very moving.
In the final story of my trilogy, “Last Stand of the Living”, characters you have grown to love and found a emotional connection with will also be tested in battle. When writing the battles scenes, I wanted to exceed the emotions that “The Lord of the Rings” brought to me and other film watchers. All I need is for people to read the stories and let me know if I succeeded in my attempt.
So take a look at “The Lord of the Rings” super trailer above. Read my trilogy and watch my super trailer over and over again to reconnect emotionally with a fantasy story that holds many truths.
