"The Armor of God" Book Trailer

The publication for The Armor of God, the sci fi book I first released on this blog, is just around the corner. As part of my marketing strategy, I edited a book trailer to release on my YouTube channel. Here it is. I hope you enjoy it! More info after.


The first book of the trilogy, The Armor of God, is set in a once-beautiful planet razed by a malignant alien virus called the Laani. Having effectively shielded itself from the wreckage of the world, the last remaining human settlement is Roue. Within this domed city, the last humans live comfortable lives, awaiting their inevitable extinction.

In the year of his eighteenth birthday, Ezra Blanchard must take part in military service, but when the army discovers that Ezra's blood possesses extremely rare qualities, he is placed to be trained in Zenith, a top secret facility hidden from the citizens of Roue where Ezra discovers humanity’s last glimmer of hope: the Creux.

These mysterious suits of armor of unknown origin and unimaginable power are the only weapon capable of battling the Laani virus on a microscopic level, and one of them can only be piloted by Ezra, a young man who doesn’t even believe humanity has a future.

Ezra enters an exciting new world full of new friends, new enemies, and new challenges, quickly understanding that training to pilot the Creux is not easy for body, mind, or spirit, and that Zenith, and its inhabitants, could hold some very dark secrets.

This is the beginning of a big sci fi epic, a trilogy about hope, survival, and awesome robots. It's Evangelion meets Xenogears meets Game of Thrones meets Osmosis Jones meets Harry Potter.

This is the first trailer I ever do where I have to work without any footage at all, so it forced me to be creative. It might not be the most epic thing I've made, but it's without a doubt my favorite. I had to use all kinds of graphics, stock footage, etc. to tease the book's storyline effectively. Of course, all of this had to be either free or licensed to use.
