Video killed, then marketed, the book
Barely any words, at all.
Blog of videos.
The Melville House hosts its first annual Moby Awards tonight. (Yes, I know, technically something cannot be “annual” until it happens for two consecutive years; but that’s how they billed it, as the “first annual.” Next year, Melville House should call it the second inaugural Moby Awards.)
The awards recognize the best book trailers. The categories are best low budget/indie, best big budget, best performance by an author, best cameo in a book trailer (if Zach Galifinakis doesn’t win for his performance in Lowboy, I’m calling shenanigans), and least likely trailer to sell the book.
For your viewing pleasure, I have imbedded a few of the trailers.
I Lego N.Y.
Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter
The aforementioned Lowboy
Now, two completely unrelated book videos:
Brontë Sisters Power Dolls
Finally, Bill Murray reads poetry to construction workers
