Book Trailer Reveal: After the Woods

When author Kim Savage approached us to make a book trailer for her debut novel AFTER THE WOODS we were blown away by the writing and the visual possibilities it contained.

Synopsis

Would you risk your life to save your best friend?

Julia did. When a paroled predator attacked Liv in the woods, Julia fought back and got caught. Liv ran, leaving Julia in the woods for a terrifying 48 hours that she remembers only in flashbacks. One year later, Liv seems bent on self-destruction, starving herself, doing drugs, and hooking up with a violent new boyfriend. A dead girl turns up in those same woods, and Julia’s memories resurface alongside clues unearthed by an ambitious reporter that link the girl to Julia’s abductor. As the devastating truth becomes clear, Julia realizes that after the woods was just the beginning.

Casting

We cast Olivia Shipp as Julia, After The Woods‘ protagonist. Olivia was a perfect fit for the character. Furthermore she was more than capable of taking on the physical demands the role required and did all of her own stunt work. Emma Busk portrayed her best friend Liv and gave a great performance. Also the excellent Todd Blood as the paroled predator Donald Jessup.

“A riveting exploration of what it’s like when the enemy is much closer than you suspect.” – Kirkus Reviews 

Production

We filmed the book trailer an hour outside of Los Angeles in the mountains of the Angeles National Forest. It features naturalist cinematography by Colton Davie, editing by Rosie Nakamura, and the producer was me, Rocco Rivetti.
