Speaking Palooza Teaser Videos

I had a lot of fun creating some teaser trailer style videos for Speaking Palooza 2019. The first four of them were created using the “movie trailer” feature of iMovie. And, although you can understand them without sound, it is the music that really makes them fun. The final video is a spoof of Monster Truck Rally commercials that were common in the 1970s. Christopher Gildemeister graciously lent his awesome voice to that trailer.
