Action! Making a movie trailer for my new novel ‘Plague’

“I need … Caravaggio! Give me chiaroscuro. Light the candle! Camera ready? Now… Action!”

OK. So I got a little carried away. But it was my directorial debut, after all.  And the  cameraman -  my friend, the Emmy award winning documentary filmmaker Dan McKinney – just sighed and shot it brilliantly.

I will give you more details of ‘the making’ later. How my vision was shaped. For now, here’s the video. (There’s a very slight difference between the UK and Canadian versions, in the pack shot, so click on whichever is geographically closer.)

See: ‘pack shot’! I’m ready to shoot my first commercial, Ridley!

    That is just awesome, Chris! I was wondering how and where you will be airing the commercial?
