Hello everyone,

My new book will come out and be published in July.
The publishing company wants me to make a short magic video clip about 1 min for advertising purpose.
There must be my new book or new poster inside the video.
I'm looking for some ideas and here are some that comes in my mind:
produce dove in the book, torn and restore poster

Would you please give me some ideas ?
Thank you very much.

This would be an easier task if we knew what KIND of book it is, what is it about, who is the traget audience, etc.

For instance, my book is a weekly devotional. I sure wouldn't promote it with a video about Satan. Smile

You could do it as a negative ad campaign type of thing. That would be different.

Thank you for your kindly reply.

This book is a book about my travel story in south america.
I have been to South America for 3 months as a magical backpacker.
I travel there, performing magic there, even busking there.
There are many interesting stories happened.

Thank you very much.

Well why not do a trick sort of recreating a story from the book?

What about a quick clip of you standing there with your backpack on, and a book in your hand. Wait, you need a walking stick for your travels. Open up the book and remove a long walking stick from it (4' pole production).

Combining Danny's and Donald's ideas would make an excellent promotional video.

Two thumbs up.

BTW, Barry Mitchell recently sold an oversize book / production prop (limited edition), and also sells a "pole control" (for appearing poles), and also a variety of appearing poles, wands, straws, pencils, candy canes, etc. Or you can use a more normal looking prop book like a hot book (just produce the pole out of it, instead of fire).

The oversize book prop ("Big Book Of...") isn't on his website. It was something recently promoted in his e-newsletter, and you had to email him for availability. Here's a video of it. Obviously, this presentation & prop is more for kidshow or comedy magicians, and the prop looks cartoony.
