Project Description

Sneak Peek “trailer” videos often take much longer to create and edit because there is so much raw footage to contemplate inclusion. The primary goal is to garner audience interest. (If they leave after but a few seconds of video, you haven’t served them well.)

Having just shot a number of “Tractor Chronicles” segments about planting the winter cover crop, it became a matter of selecting (editing) the most eye-catching sequences to cobble together into a teaser film.

Topping off the challenges in this type of project is selecting and editing the music. First, it’s necessary to determine what mood should be set by the sneak peek film, and then music can be selected to match the mood. On the techical side, it also requires careful editing to match the music’s beat throughout the teaser.
