How It Works :

  1. Please note that your book video will be based on the answers and materials you provide, so please consider your responses to the questionnaire carefully.
  2. A link to the first cut of your trailer will be sent to you by email by our marketing services representative.
  3. Once approved your final trailer will be distributed on YouTube.
  4. You will also get a link to the final trailer which you can forward and share to as many contacts in your network as you prefer.

*You will own all the rights to your book video and will be provided with the final video file to share with readers, friends, and family and include in your marketing materials.

Once your video is completed, it will be considered for TV or movie adaption first by 5 More Minutes. If 5 More Minutes is interested in working with you, they will directly contact you to explain their plan of action to gauge your interest. If after reviewing your video, 5 More Minutes decides not to engage with your concept, it will then be entered into our Hollywood Database, where registered entertainment professionals can browse and search for new material to adapt into feature films and television series.
