Here's the terrific trailer that the gifted filmmaker and editor M. Antonio Olmos made for my forthcoming novel, Pride/Prejudice.

It's a brilliant work of movie craftsmanship, although a perfect example of why writers should not be seen or heard--only read--which is why this little film is so great. Olmos created a dynamic, innovative film with multiple takes, angles and shots, despite having such a limited subject to work with: just...me, talking about...my writing.

Thank you! I wasn't sure how it was going to go over, but seemed more interesting than just sitting down doing the talking head thing. And it was a lot more fun to make.

Glad you liked it.

well done
it's a well done film, exposing in a few moments the heart and soul of the writer.

But...... I would have prefered Brooklyn Brownstones as a background!

Re: well done
I'm glad you liked the film. But honestly, Brooklyn brownstones don't really have all that much more to do with Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice than the Manhattan skyline.

I chose the view I did because: 1) it's spectacular; and 2) I can see it from my roof, so we could make the film by plugging in equipment in my apartment and running the electrical cords, etc., out a window.

At any rate, I hope you like the book.
