mama needs yr help!
this is mama's book trailer:
it is too quirky. it is not dark enough. it doesn't capture the essence of Homegirl! the only good things are cousin allen's cameo (yes!) & his cinematography...
here is a good book trailer (for an awesome book you all should read soonsoon):
here is another good book trailer:
mama doesn't know if she's allowed to do this... mama doesn't know if this is a cop-out, but mama was thinking that maybe she could crowdsource her book trailer (& look at mama using the fancy techno-geek lingo, yo, all from her porch under the alabama sun; mama wipes that sun glare off her laptop with moonshines, yo)...
READERS OF HOMEGIRL!
if you feel like it, send mama your interpretations
