Another favorite trailer is The Book of Bond. It is the shortest book trailer that I know of at 7 seconds. Just a collection of pictures of James Bonds from the movies with the sound of pages turning and a directive. The character images are so well known the approach works.

Missed Opportunity

The problem is the directive is only shown for one second. I have viewed and shown this trailer many times and when I did the timing was the first time I realized there was words on the directive. It flashes by then on YouTube it shows suggested other videos. It is a shame they didn’t show the directive for 5 seconds. When I first saw the trailer I had problem finding out what book it was.

I do understand the desire to have a length of (0:07)
