There’s been lots of talk about mobile game trailers since Clumsy Ninja was featured with a trailer on the app store.
Some see being able to put a video on their app store page as a blessing.
It can also be argued that this might just widen the gap between indie developers and big publishers for budget reasons.
But regardless of one’s opinion, if app videos and game trailers make their entry on the app store then developers have to adapt. Just like they had to adapt when iOS 7 came out.
Video has been around for quite some time on the Google Play Store. I believe it’s a great way to illustrate an app/game and that it’s the best thing next to actually trying it. And there are tons of other ways video can be used for your app promotion: YouTube (as video or ads), Facebook video ads, mobile ads, app website, pitching, etc.
Hiring a video production company costs time. Doing the video yourself costs money.
Let’s take a look at how you should go about the latter and how to produce a good game trailer yourself.
Quick lifehack: Wall stand for iPhone (Smartphone) with cheap bathroom hook.
Most of smartphone are light, the stronger the glue the better. You don’t want to ended up with a broken phone don’t you? Use bathroom hooks that has strong glue and can stand 1Kg or more weight.
Only works for small smartphone. The hooks wont hold bigger smartphone or tablet.
Cost: around $2 or less.
