Inspirations: Book Trailer – The Children of Hamelin

Lone Peak Productions helped bring the book The Children of Hamelin to life with a book trailer.

Lone Peak Productions created The Children of Hamelin book trailer for the talented author Danny Lasko. I'll admit, I love a good fairy tale retelling, when it's done right. I was sucked into Once Upon a Time. Everyone knows the story of The Pied Piper and how he led the children away, but Lasko has a unique take on the fate of the children. This trailer has a beautiful fly-through of a mountain range and clouds to a city which is being bombed and set on fire. The unique, stylistic illustrations of the characters combined with the particle and lens flare effects are intriguing. 

This project was created in After Effects CS6 by Stephen Smith. He used Video Copilot Optical Flares and Trapcode Particular to create and enhance the visuals.

Here's the Kindle version of The Children of Hamelin of the book at Amazon.
