Standard Book Video


Turn your book into a moving picture to gain the attention of new readers. Using still images and music, your Standard Book Video will captivate audiences in a powerful and engaging way. A Standard Book Video can help you create and maintain a meaningful presence online in the competitive marketplace. Book videos are an excellent addition to your press releases, social media sites, and personal websites to help your book stand out in the crowd.

Take a look at Bruce Plant's Standard Book Video showcasing his book Songs of Sunshine and Rain.

By posting your video on social media sites and personal websites you can reach a valuable audience of online video viewers and attract potential readers. Video marketing helps you engage your audience on a level they can’t ignore.

Your Standard Book Video will include the following features to help you promote your book online:

  •   Creation of a custom-made book video, approximately 45 to 60 seconds in length
  •   Storytelling through text and 2-D graphics and images
  •   Distribution of your video to YouTube, in order to maximize exposure
  •   Web streaming capability
  •   Review of your video for TV and film consideration by 5 More Minutes

Once your video is created and distributed you own the rights to it. We will provide you with a copy of the final video file so you can share the video with family and friends, and include it in additional marketing materials.

Revisions: Alterations can be made to your video once it is finished. One round of revisions is included in this service at no additional cost. Additional rounds of revisions can be purchased for an additional fee.

Acceptable changes include:

  •   Simple text changes (adding or removing words)
  •   Changes in font size
  •   Corrections or additions to book and author information
  •   Changes to audio levels
  •   Image changes (if you provided your own or you feel an image is offensive)

Once your video is completed, it will be considered for TV or movie adaption by 5 More Minutes.

What You Get:

  •   If 5 More Minutes is interested in working with you, they will directly contact you to explain their plan of action to gauge your interest.
  •   If after reviewing your video 5 More Minutes decides not to engage with your concept, it will then be entered into our Hollywood Database, where registered entertainment professionals can browse and search for new material to adapt into feature films and television series.
