Detention is a book about an escape from an immigration detention centre, a school lockdown and an epic chase. It’s about a connection between two unlikely heroes. And it all takes place, for the most part, over the space of about four hours.
I love making videos about my books. I love finding away, in a minute or less, to bring the story to life and share the tone and key ideas. It’s a great challenge and I share some of my techniques in these two posts:
The Detention book trailer is somewhat of a sequel to the Two Wolves book trailer as both feature my journalist sister Kerryn as newsreader. This time we’re a little more ambitious with the effects, thanks to Nadine at Goss Design and Windle from Penguin Random House Australia.
If you’d like to support the book, I’d love you to give the trailer a Like on YouTube or you can find it in your local bookshop or at online booksellers via this link.
