I got very little sleep last night, so please excuse me if this post is full of typos. It probably will be. I'm not functioning at full capacity.
Why was I up late last night? Oh... no reason. Just editing a video... a video that I've been meaning to put together since almost two years ago. I had found the perfect song last year, and received permission from the artist to use it at the start of this year... some five months ago. Yup. I'm just that organised.
It was the trailer for The Seraphimé Saga. I originally was going to do one for each book, but one - they're a package deal and it made sense to make one trailer for both, and two - I never managed to make the trailer for the first book before the second came out, so there was no point to doing it now.
My book trailers are normal a minute or so, but since this was for two books, and because I just couldn't bring myself to cut the song at all (I love this song, guys), I decided to let the trailer run for the full length of the track. Three minutes isn't that long, if we consider one trailer for one book might be one and a half?
I'm struggling to justify the length. That's what's happening right now. But the song! I love the song!
Anyway, here is the video:
Right, the song is "Eamifámut" (Ancient Forces) by Berit Margrethe Oskal. You can but it and her other amazing music HERE.
It is sung in Sámi and these are the lyrics, with their English translation below:
Ealli jurdda, ealli doaivva
Eat mii vuollán,
eat mii goarrán
Ancient forces, ancient dreams
Living thoughts, living hopes
We will not surrender,
we will not disappear
I think it's pretty perfect for the series.
Anywho, let me know what you think of it. I'm off to pretend that I can actually function today.
