Learn the ins and outs of book trailer production, as well as what mistakes to avoid, from Timid Monster’s Dan Baker, the filmmaker behind Inger Iversen’s award-winning Few Are Angels trailer, and the highly anticipated After Light, based on Cameo Renae’s ARV-3. Don’t let your hard work be drowned out by the noise!

In his meager tinkerings, he has released the award-winning films “Avarice” and “John Gray,” taught multi-media production internationally, and animated the graphics for Neil Patrick Harris’ opening numbers at the 2012 and 2013 Tony Awards.
