ONCE WE WERE book trailer release!!

Hey guys! I’m really excited to share with you the book trailer for Once We Were. 😀

Last year, when What’s Left of Me released, the lovely people at MainStayPro filmed a trailer for the book. I loved it so much that I wanted to give book-trailer-making a go of my own. Luckily, I took an intro-to-filmmaking class at uni last semester, and I was allowed to borrow some of their equipment.

While the trailer for WLoM was definitely in trailer-form, I wanted to go a slightly different route for OWW. Since I supposed that most people interested in watching it would already be familiar with the world of the books, I decided to film OWW’s trailer more as a short scene.

It’s nothing lifted exactly from the book, but I think people who have already read OWW will realize exactly what’s going on. And those of you who haven’t…well, Once We Were comes out in 1 week, 1 day! (September 17, 2013). Hooray 😀

So, without further ado, the trailer!

Interested in a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the trailer (plus some short bloopers? ;P) Make sure to check Epic Reads later this week for a video and a written piece.

ONCE WE WERE “I’m lucky just to be alive.”

Eva was never supposed to have survived this long. As the recessive soul, she should have faded away years ago. Instead, she lingers in the body she shares with her sister soul, Addie. When the government discovered the truth, they tried to “cure” the girls, but Eva and Addie escaped before the doctors could strip Eva’s soul away.

Now fugitives, Eva and Addie find shelter with a group of hybrids who run an underground resistance. Surrounded by others like them, the girls learn how to temporarily disappear to give each soul some much-needed privacy. Eva is thrilled at the chance to be alone with Ryan, the boy she’s falling for, but troubled by the growing chasm between her and Addie. Despite clashes over their shared body, both girls are eager to join the rebellion.

Yet as they are drawn deeper into the escalating violence, they start to wonder: How far are they willing to go to fight for hybrid freedom? Faced with uncertainty and incredible danger, their answers may tear them apart forever.

    Awesome trailer Kat! Really well done! (I had to smile when the credits rolled by and I saw that the young actress who played the little hybrid girl is named Adelaide (Addie??) in real life. I hope she has read/will read the books!) 🙂 Great job!

    The trailer was okay. I’m still interested in the book, but in truth I found the trailer to be a bit unprofessional.
