The Clan and Puffin Books, who are publishing Michelle’s upcoming series, have a little competition planned for the aspiring filmmakers amongst you:
We challenge YOU to create your own video about Gods and Warriors, to spread the word far and wide and make it the biggest book of 2012!
We’re looking for a video that will be both intriguing and exciting — and make people want to read Gods and Warriors as soon as it hits the stores! It can be done in any style you like; maybe a movie-style trailer, a video blog by you, or music and images inspired by what you know about the book and Michelle’s writing in general. You can focus on any part of the story, but must be mainly about Gods and Warriors (rather than just Michelle or Chronicles) and be under one minute long.
To help, you can download the cover here (layered inDesign; high-res JPG) and check out these sites for useful things like:
- Free image editor (http://pixlr.com/editor/)
- Free / cheap music (http://www.stockmusicsite.com/) or (http://www.royaltyfreemusic.com/) or (http://incompetech.com/)
- Free images (http://www.freeimages.co.uk/)
We’ll choose one winner, that we feel is the the one that best meets all the criteria above, to win one of the most exclusive, prized possessions any Clanner could want — the chance to come to a ‘Superfan event’ hosted by Puffin Books at their head office in London! You will meet Michelle in person, hear her talk about Gods and Warriors in detail, get free *signed* goodies and be the very first people in the world to see the Puffin Books official trailer for Gods and Warriors!
This trailer competition is open to UK residents aged 18 and under (at the time of the closing date). If you’re over 18, we’re really sorry that you aren’t eligible for this competition. Michelle has told us that she would like the Superfan event to be open to her younger fans.
