Due July 13th, 2015 - Movie trailers tempt you to watch the movies they advertise. They only exist to lead you to the box office, and their makers will stop at nothing to make you feel like you must watch the movie.

Do you think you could tempt someone to read a book the same way a trailer tempts someone to watch a movie?

You need to hook viewers, to interest them with details without giving away too much.

For this contest you will create a powerful video trailer for one of the following three books. Use special effects, animation, music, or whatever your heart desires to engage and excite readers. However, there are some requirements and guidelines.

Must-haves
  * Engage and excite readers about one of the three books below
  * Last no longer than 1 minute
  * Include the book’s title and author
  * Use one quote from the book at minimum

No-nos
  * Don’t replace the book’s scenes or dialogue with your own.
  * Don’t misrepresent the book — a thriller is not a romantic comedy or a biography, and readers don’t like being misled.
  * Don’t use video, music, or images that you do not have the right to use.

The books you can choose from are (more info at link below):
  1. Magonia by Maria Dahvana Headly
  2. Challenger Deep by Neal Shusterman
  3. Proof of Forever by Lexa Hilyer
