    Papercuts - Book Trailer Competition for Secondary Schools

    In previous years, the State Government also ran a competition for schools asking students to create book trailers on a book they have read.

    Go to Papercuts to see some fantastic booktrailers from last year using other technological tools available today.

    You might like to gain ideas from last year's competition.  Read students reflections about why they chose the book they did and how they went about their work.

    I'm not sure if it will run again this year but if you are interested watch this space and we will keep you updated.

    In any case you can enter the Dandenong High School Book Trailer Competition.

    Remember the work must be your own original work to be considered for a prize.

    You can use Animoto or other program and creativity will certainly be judged.


    The Book Thief - Extended Movie Trailer

    We learn a lot about Book Trailers from watching Movie Trailers that tell us about movies based on books.

    This is one of my all time favourite books and it has just been turned into a film.

    I also think it is an excellent trailer.

    Think about the metaphor  "Words are Life."

    What do you think this story will be about?
