Tips for writing a game trailer #1

  • Edwin McRae

The Duelist Trailer was the first trailer script I wrote for Path of Exile.

Tip #1: On reflection, it was a mistake to have the narration going all the way over the gameplay examples. Narration and gameplay end up competing for your attention. Better to have the viewer focus on one or the other at different times in the trailer.
