Sometimes the right people land on your front door at just the right time. That’s what happened when I was thinking about a book trailer and two fabulous HelpX volunteers came to stay with us: Emilie and Jeremie.
I didn’t realize right away just how kind the universe was being.
Emilie and Jeremie are two of the nicest, smartest, most passionate people CJ and I have ever met. They’re a young French couple, and we loved having them at our house. Not only did they work incredibly hard around the property, but we thoroughly enjoyed their company. To top it all off, they took turns cooking us some amazing meals.
As we got to know them, we learned that while Jeremie is a physics technician, he’s passionate about photography, especially landscapes and nature. He showed us his photography, and it’s really good. Emilie has a kind, gentle spirit with a beautiful smile, and she’s a talented professional video editor and a bit of a director as well. They’re both visual storytellers.
They told us how they were filming a training video for a local abattoir, and it suddenly dawned on me.
“Have you guys ever made a book trailer?”
Together they made me a beautiful book trailer, and I’m really pleased with it. As far as I’m concerned, they’re a pair of geniuses.
Check out the clip below. What do you think?
Thanks Emilie and Jeremie! Big thanks also to Random House New Zealand for supporting this crazy idea.
