Elon Musk Biography Trailer #1


I've decided to produce a series of trailers to market my Elon Musk biography book called "The Engineer - Follow Elon Musk on a journey from South Africa to Mars." The idea originates from Tim Ferriss who explained that one of the reasons why one of his books became so successful was because of a 4-second long trailer on YouTube. He also produce several trailers to find out which one would become the best. 

The trailer's name is "The Universe is Now a Smaller Place" and I got the inspiration to the name and the idea behind the trailer from the now retired supersonic passenger airliner Concorde commercial that said "The World is Now a Smaller Place." Since one of Elon Musk's companies aims to colonize Mars, I thought it was a good parallel.

I've used paint.net to edit the images and the text, and I've used Blender to animate the images and editing the final video. The images are from a few websites where you can find free photos, including New Old Stock and All-free-download. The soundtrack is a tune called Warrior Strife from YouTube's own Audio Library.
