Giddy Graphics

Custom Animated Designs!

I've been having so much fun, and getting so good, at doing animated graphics and book trailer videos, that I've decided to offer them as a service to fellow authors.

Take a look at my samples and base prices to see if you'd like to order something to spruce up your social media or website.

I have a quick turnaround time, and I'm fun to work with. You can choose your own graphics, music and sound, or let me choose for you. So let's talk and see what we can come up with.

Animated Facebook Headers

First, I design a gorgeous header using any background image, cover art, fonts and wording you like. Then I use my movie-making software to add a green screen overlay that can make your header come alive with gently falling snow, shooting stars, butterflies fluttering by, dripping blood, spooky fog, even Santa walking by. Animation gives your page life, catches the eye, and makes people stop and take a look around. This same process and cost applies to animated Facebook ad graphics.

Animated Header cost: $100
Plus the actual cost of any graphics, green screen or sound.
Samples Below
*Note: the black borders top and bottom do NOT show on your FB page.

Green Screen Overlays cost between $32-$36 each
Use 1 per header
Images Cost between $9-$10 each
Use 1 per header
*My Header samples have no sound but I can add it for you if you wish.
I suspect very few people would bother turning the sound up on a header animation though.

I change headers regularly.

Book Trailer Videos

First, we'll consult on what your book is about and get a general idea what your characters look like. Together, we'll come up with a plan for your trailer, hitting the high points and most powerful visuals in your book. And we'll choose the music, which is crucial. You can be as involved as you want in this process, choosing every clip, image and sound you want, or you can just give me guidelines and let me do all of that for you, or any level between those two extremes. 

‚ÄčNote on Costs: Since this service is brand new, my samples are all my own trailers. I use lots of clips and stills and spend a lot on my own trailers. We can keep costs of YOUR trailer down by using more stills and fewer video clips, taking long video clips and breaking them up with stills in between, utilizing different effects to give stills some motion, and so on. You could do a really nice video with 2 to 4 video clips and a few stills. 

Video Trailer cost: $1000
Plus the actual cost of any graphics, green screen, video clips or sound.

Web Quality Video Clips cost between $32-$36 each
*You'll want 2 to 3 minimally, but we can do all still images if you prefer.
Still Images Cost between $9-$10 each
*You're going to want 5 or more per video. We need to take up the length with something.
Original Music Licensing $49 
*Choosing music that fits the book is crucial.
