iMovie Trailer Book
Due Date: April 28, 2015
The 4th quarter book
report project will be to create an iMovie over the novel you have read. The iMovie will be an advertisement of the
novel that will entice others to read the book.
In addition to the novel, you will also type up a 1 page paper that
explains the conflict, resolution and theme of the novel. The paper will be for my eyes only, but the
iMovies will be shared with the entire class.
The novel you choose needs to be a book that has not yet been made into
your iMovie, choose three major scenes
with one being the first part of the climax (remember: DO NOT give away the
climax!) from the novel to visualize and videotape. The other two scenes are up to you. Use the attached outline to help you plan out
your scenes before you begin filming.
You may use other students in class, family members, or friends as
actors as needed. You may use props and
costumes, but they are not required.
Your iMovies may be made using the premade trailers in iMovie or from
your own imagination.
adding a voice-over and/or music to explain the movie and add drama as is done
in many movie trailers. Flashy headlines
or captions would be great too. Think
about the movie trailers we watched in class (Divergent, Last Action Hero,
Guardians of the Galaxy) and watch some different ones on
youtube to get ideas. Your trailer
should be anywhere from 2 to 5 minutes in length.

novel; iMovie is enticing and is
encouraging the audience to see the movie.
