Shifter Born Trailer

December 24, 2009

My very first video trailer is up and ready for comments and thrown tomatoes.

Shifter Born is the first of a series of Urban Fantasy stories and part of it involves a band of young shifters that record their own animal sounds and use that as background music for their CDs. The trailer features the OtherSkins’ tune called Moon Song.

Here are the lyrics for Moon Song, the theme for Shifter Born:

Moon Song
by the OtherSkins
You an’ me we’re born alone
All we want is peace at home
Mortal beings let us be
Shifter, human harmony

Sing with me, gather soon
Sing with me and praise our moon
Sing with me, oh shifter born
Sing with me and change… our… form…

Someone’s watchin’ from the side
Someone’s thinkin’ they can hide
Someone’s lookin’ for deceit
Someone’s gonna hit the street

Wanderin’ through the woods
Late date Saturday night
Wanderin’ through the woods
Wonderin’ who is gonna bite

You an’ me we’re born alone
All we want is peace at home
Mortal beings let us be
Shifter, human harmony

Someone’s watchin’ us from a car
Someone’s wonderin’ what we are
Someone’s gonna get a fright
Someone’ll maybe die tonight

Meet me, drivin’ through the night
Meet me, feedin’ my delight
Meet me, under a howlin’ moon
Meet me… meet me, SOON!

You an’ me we’re born alone
All we want is peace at home
Mortal beings let us be
Shifter, human harmony

You an’ me we’re born alone
All we want is peace at home
Mortal beings let us be
Shifter, human harmony

In a subsequent posting, I’m planning a tutorial on how this was produced.

If you have any questions, you might want to call into the BlogTalkRadio interview on Sunday, December 27th, 2009. I’ll be there from 2pm to 3pm Eastern Time.

Happy Holidays!
