topic icon Halloween trailer production for Billie's Kid Book

We have been working on a spooky new trailer for Billie's Kid, just in time for Halloween

Written by Steve Tucker, who was adopted as a baby, Billies Kid is the true story of his search to find his biological mother and to discover where he came from. Better known as the frontman for Steve Tucker's All Star Jazz Band, Steve released the book last year and it has received a lot of attention, especially from other adoptees who are searching for their families.

The new trailer was created with Halloween in mind. Created from Steve's own cine film from the 1960s, we edited this and matched the film damage on a few stills and created a spooky soundtrack. The 'ring a roses' music was recorded by one of the Steve Tucker all star jazz band and we mixed this with some scary industrial background and added Foley of Maniac Mark's son Finley from some old phone videos and left in most of the sound damage on those.

You can find out more about the book and buy a copy from the Billie's Kid website, or from Amazon - www.amazon.co.uk
