Scholastic book fairs were always one of the most exciting events that I used to look forward to as a kid in school. When I would attend the fairs I couldn't wait to get my hands on the latest Calvin and Hobbes books and Lamborghini posters.
As an adult I had the opportunity to pay those experiences forward by creating sound designs for an animated hype video as well as various animated book trailers for Scholastic.
Each video had their own unique animations which allowed for a great variety of sound effects and soundscapes to help bring them to life. Working with Scholastic brought back the love and memories I had for the book fairs when I was in school and these projects were a great pleasure to work on. Above is the hype video and below are some of my favorite picks from the multitude of trailers that I've worked on over the past few years.
