Watch Trailer 4: De Macht van Meneer Miller / The Might of Mister Miller
Last book trailer in this series of four was made by young illustrator Mickey Cohen, based on a script by the author. Mickey is currently studying Illustration at the Willem de Kooning Academy of Visual Arts in Rotterdam. He did his illustration & design internship here at Submarine where he worked on this book trailer. The Might of Mister Miller (2005) is another solid suspense-laden bestseller by Den Tex. The thriller was made into a TV mini-series in 2010.
Watch Trailer 3: De Vriend (Friend)
Dutch illustrator and animator Aimee de Jongh made the third e-book trailer in the series, which promotes Charles den Tex’ action-packed thriller De Vriend (Friend). De Jongh’s dark and atmospheric trailer perfectly captures the confusion and paranoia of the main character, Emma’s predicament. Like trailer 2, this book trailer explores the parallax scrolling technique to create animation. Script by Charles den Tex, creative coding by Sub’s dev Gijs Kattenberg.
Watch Trailer 2: De Erfgenaam (The Heir)
The second trailer in the series promotes the e-book version of Charles dex Tex‘s brand-new thriller De Erfgenaam (The Heir). To get the interdisciplinary creative juices flowing we paired the author with illustrator Jasper Rietman and Sub’s in house web dev wizz Gijs Kattenberg. The result is a unique animated book trailer unlike any other.
Watch Trailer 1: CEL
The best selling thriller CEL was made into a feature film in 2012 and is available as an e-book at charlesdentex.com. Made by the illustrator and comic artist/comic journalist Jules Calis, CEL was the first e-book trailer in the series. We asked Calis to work with a beta version of MotionArtist – a new software tool specifically “designed with the comic and graphic novel creator in mind.”
