"Your entry was simply stunning and was definitely under consideration for a judge's favorite. Your coloring helped set the *dream like state* mood of your entry and really seemed to fit well with the title of your book for this round. Your editing was very easy to follow and the voiceovers you used helped even more to clarify the bit of the story that you were showing. In all honesty, it felt like we were watching a real trailer because everything you created in the video seemed to mesh together so well. We, once again, appreciate the fact that you created your own cast and showed your book in your own point of view from reading it, rather than the POV chosen in books already depicted in movies/shows. Job well done and congrats on making it to the next round of BOIT!"
SO, here it is! My entry for the second challenge of the BOIT competition! It's finally done! *phew* ;P
I decided to make a vid for a book that hasn't been made into a movie, and most likely never will be lol. The Seven Sleepers: The Flight of the Eagles is the first book in a very random book series by Gilbert Morris.
I focused on the first few chapters of the book. Here's how the story goes:
Josh Adams and Sarah Collingwood are taken to a lab where they are put in sleep capsules which Josh's father, a scientist, has invented. They remain in stasis during a terrible nuclear war that changes the entire planet. Fifty years later Josh is woken up and told of what happened. He is also told that there are six other children (including Sarah) that like him, have been preserved the last fifty years. He reads in his father's journal that he must locate the other sleepers and awaken them, but before he can begin this quest he must train to become a warrior.
Of course in the rest of the book, he finds them and then through out the series of ten books they fight the bad guys, help people, and blah, blah, blah. I decided not to go into all that though lol ;P
So there ya go! Hopefully you'll be able to tell what's going on just by watching the vid.
Thanks again to the girls running the competition for letting me through to this round, it was quite the challenge, but I enjoyed it! :)
Leave me some love people! Oh and don't forget to tell me whether or not you got the story from just the vid! ;P
Thanks so much!
Annoucer on radio: "The White House has ordered the following national disaster alert."
Mr. Adams: "Listen to me son, try to wait it out"
Mrs. Adams: "Tell me he's going to be okay!"
Mr. Adams: "He's gonna be alright!"
Person 1: "You've been in cryogenic hibernation."
Person 2: "It has long been fortold that a seeker would come."
