Scottish Book Trust Trailer

This is our book trailer of Ravenstorm Island by Gillian Philip. This book is a shortlisted book for the Scottish Book Trust this year and we read it in class as our class novel.

We split the class into Directors, Actors and Prop managers. First we planned out how we were going to carry out the trailer using a storyboard template. The Directors found this useful when it came to filming!

The planning, filming and editing process took us about two weeks to complete. The scenery you will see is from our local school environment and the Directors enjoyed filming outside. We felt it was important to capture Kenmore and Scotland in the trailer.

We hope you like our trailer. Please leave comments and feedback as this will allow us to improve our next trailers!

Watch and beware, you are in for a scare!
