The Nothing but Ghosts Trailer

Monday, April 6, 2009


Nothing but Ghosts is a work of fiction, but its landscape was inspired by the glorious pleasure gardens of Chanticleer—an international treasure that happens to breathe and bloom ten minutes from my home. I shot the trailer footage yesterday, in sixty-degree weather, under blue skies.

This morning, while finishing my work on the piece, I did something I tend to do most mornings, which is to check in on Chasing Ray, a most extraordinary book blog. There, in a piece about books Colleen Mondor has been reading while on vacation with her son, I found her early impressions of Nothing but Ghosts. I am deeply moved by her response and hopeful that the book carries her through to an ending she believes in.

Oh, that's fantastic. You've put everything - images, music, your narration - together so well.

I love the mood you've created...the sense of anticipation.

Bravo!

Oh my goodness! What a trailer! It's mysterious and beautiful - just like NBG. I'm in the mood for a replay. And another one. And another.

So exciting to hear Chasing Ray's first thoughts!
