My Slapped Together Book Trailer of My Dream Cast . . .

Book trailers are all the rage these days, but it can cost tons of money to have one professionally made. So I slapped together this trailer of my dream cast for my book. Please note that I said "dream" cast. Meaning, this will probably never ever happen. But one can only dream. It took me about 2 hours and I had loads of fun making it. What do you think? It's live on youtube now. Bwarhahaha, my very first youtube video.

  1. Hey Lisa!
    This video is so cool!
    We never know, our wildest dream can come true! You just need more exposure. It's brilliant that you posted it n youtube.
    Do you know how many stupid movies or many other things that came from youtube?
    I think this can happen!! Not sure about Giselle Bundchen though, she is pretty expensive nowadays lol
    Please invite me for the movie premier when it happens :]

  2. Zac Efron??? Now, who's projecting, hahahaaa. I meant to comment on your earlier posts, but my computer wouldn't let me, I don't know why. I hope you are feeling better! I am at home now (childhood home, not the pile of mess that is my current own) and eating lots =)

  3. Hahaha I really enjoyed your dream cast clip. Great job with the editing! I couldn't agree more with with the main cast -- though Zac Efron might be shorter than Giselle? But it's ok, b/c Mika and Ingeborg weren't dating long :)

    LOL! That friggin song is stuck in my head now. Love the song though, goes w. your trailer ;)

  5. Nadja - thanks, and I know! Giselle is expensive, plus I'm not sure if she can even act. And she's quite a bit older than Zac, but I couldn't think of anyone else to play her =)

    Dinster - Whoa! You're back in Indonesia?!? Which part??? Lucky you. Enjoy the food and your vacay! Thanks for your wishes and I'm doing better. The pain never goes away, but I try to keep myself busy, hence this video

    Cee - Haha, he is shorter. I think I need a new Ingebory. or maybe someone else as Mika. Maybe Henry Cavill?

    Anon - Tee-hee, it's stuck in my head too

    Missy - thanks for your honesty. I do appreciate it. I totally agree, the 1st edition was littered w. typos and errors, so I'm truly sorry about that. The 2nd edition is more polished. And I will refrain from using 'anyways' in the future =)

  6. Lisa - i LOVE this trailer!!! So cute, and the cast choice is perfect! Great pic with Zac Efron as Mika! You crack me up girl. If this ever does become a movie, and I pray it does because I loved the book, please invite me to the premiere ;)

  7. Haha, funny trailer. I read your book too and I enjoyed it very much. Truong is by far my fav character. Couldn't you find someone more glamorous to play Truong?
    I remember Rex Lee from Entourage but sorry, I just don't see him as Truong.

  8. Lisa!
    I love your dream cast. Now to get that cast together and make that movie!

  9. Perfect! I love it! Great job Lisa:) Guess what book I added to my new kindle first? Yep, I'm reading it now. So far, I LOVE IT!

  10. This was so fun, Lisa! I loved it. I hope you're the next cubicle trilogy!

  11. Kim - I'll save you an invitation. And you too Nadja! ;-)

    Suraya - funny you say that, 2 other readers mentioned that on my book fb page. I couldn't think of anyone else. There aren't to many fabulous gay Vietnamese actors in Hollywood. And I LOVED Rex in Entourage

    Michele - lol, I wish it were that easy. =) If only, eh?

    Kristin - no way! thanks.

    Molly - Thanks and me too! =) xx

  12. Cute trailer, Lisa!

    **singing along** My cubicle. My cubicle. It doesn't have a vieeeeeeew.
