Fun Friday - Hilarious Book Trailer

A modern tale of star-crossed lovers with a fresh urban twist. At Fairfield High School, on the outskirts of Chicago , everyone knows that south-siders mixing with north-siders can be explosive.

"We were going to shoot on location, but then a week before the shoot decided to do it on a green screen and add in the background. Chris did some of the background shots (some I didn't like and made him change) and the school/hallway shots and football field background I actually took myself at a high school by my house (I asked permission from the principal to take the pics). I do wish we'd done it on location, but this way was a lot cheaper and easier."

You can read more behind the scenes on the making of this video here. But seriously, the green screen effect totally added to the charm and humor of this video.
