Ghosts of War Update and Trailer

With a couple of re-shoots under our belt, we are now fully editing the finished product of Ghosts of War--our documentary shot in conjunction with Elsinore Productions (www.elsinoreproductions.com) in Memphis, Tennessee. We have been getting emails almost daily concerning the film and its release, so I thought I'd get a 'quick' trailer for the movie up and running.

I made this trailer using a website called Animoto; they specialize in making 'slide show' type videos using music, photos and small video clips. I met these guys while attending the SXSW Film Festival and loved their product, so I thought this would be a great way to plug their service (something you can use as well at their website), as well as get a trailer for the movie out there for folks to watch.

At this point, it looks like we'll be ready for limited screenings of the movie (at the locations where we shot the film) in the Feb/March time frame; we will also be putting the documentary in several film festivals at that time. After that, we hope to screen the movie on television (we've been talking with Syfy and the Travel Channel) and then release the movie on DVD/BluRay (we will sell those on our website, as well as online retailers like Amazon).

So, that said, here is the Animoto styled trailer for Ghosts of War. Enjoy!
