See the final version on YouTube as posted today!

I’m working on my crowd-funding campaign for The Bow of Destiny to launch just after the Fourth of July so I’ve been making a video. It’s still in progress but I present it here for viewing and reviewing so please offer comments.

I’m running on a shoestring for the trailer until I raise enough money to commission some artwork and then official details like a trailer, web and social media banners, etc.

I made this with Movie Maker Live over a few hours with some photos and illustrations from and music from Incompetech which offers royalty free music for posted credit in the video.

The name of the piece is “Dark Fog”  by Kevin MacLeod (Twitter: @kmacleod) which seemed to hit the right tenor of mystery and intrigue that I need. Kevin, thanks for offering royalty free music, I’ll drop a donation on you soon! I’m likely going to add a short clip of my own appearance at the end for the campaign value.

Here’s the link on YouTube where you can see the video now. UPDATE: Re-published on YouTube (6/30/2014).

I have more to share later today so I will post a second blog with that – stay-tuned for more!
