Rock Stars of Reading video series coming March 31

Thursday, March 26, 2009.

Finally!!!  Mark has produced more than half of the videos from our six-day holiday to Connecticut and Northampton — our November 2008 Rock Stars of Reading road trip.  This means we’ll begin publishing the video series, one video at-a-time, beginning on March 31; filling up the “off-days” in the Just One More Book!! publishing cycle until all of the videos are available.

To prove this is really happening, here is a promotional video for the series.  It’s an extract from Part 1 and features some of our car travel as well as photographs and video clips from the entire trip, all cut to the amazing song Animus Girl by savium.  Look for the faces of Richard Michelson, Paul O. Zelinsky, Jane Yolen, Jeanne Birdsall, Mo Willems, Jane Dyer, Jarrett Krosoczka, Diane de Groat, Lane Smith, Corinne Dumas, Jeff Mack and MANY MORE!

With the exception of this promotional video, we will not be embedding the videos into the Just One More Book!! RSS feed.  You’ll have to come here to watch them.  Each video will be about 15 minutes long.

Mark’s been hard at work editing 13 hours of video into a series of 15-minute video episodes that document our 6 days with the Rock Stars of Reading this past November. Sadly, maintaining flow and focus in each video means lots of great footage on the cutting room floor.

Members of our free email newsletter are in for a treat. We will be making some of the video outtakes available in our February issue.
