Cinematic Convolutions: The Trailer


The Trailer. A common sight of our society; it plays in ads, in movie theaters, and in our TVs, and because of that it seems like a simple thing, at most being only 2-3 minutes long. But the trailer, in reality, is a complex package of decisions, ones that could make or break its movie.

The Undisputed Champion

Hi everybody!  My name is Chris, I won the grueling rock-paper-scissors tournament that we had a couple weeks ago and that’s why I’m blogging last.

My Role:

I’ll be doing all things technology for this group which for now will just be managing this website and I’ll be writing our book with the rest of the group as well. Hopefully, my job will expand to other things as we progress through the different stages of publishing our book.

What I Want to Do With Our Book

To be honest, I’d never really considered writing a book until now.  I guess that’s why it’s so exciting!  We’re all still not entirely sure what we’re going to write about, but we have a couple ideas bouncing back and forth between us.  I hope that these blog posts and updates will both inform and inspire people, whether they’re high school students like us, or adults.  Maybe some of you will decide to pursue your passion in creative work like we are.

[Insert Witty Title Here]

Nice to meet you! My name is Kevin and I’m the third member of 8 Cent Publishing. Being influenced by anime and romance stories, I’ve had my own little fantasies From time-slip to classic hero-defeats-demon lord stories, I’ve had them all. So, I would like to take the opportunity of publishing a book to share one of my very own daydreams to others.


I oversee all actions regarding writing and grammar in 8 Cent Publishing. I guess I could also be called the Head Editor, but I’m the only one unfortunately. Errors in grammar or diction will be corrected by me to improve the overall quality of our work. I will give advice and tips to 8 Cent Publishing’s writers and guide them through the revision process. Many drafts and peer revisions will be done over the course of our project, and any work, essay, or post will have to be approved by me and Corey before being published. This means I will be on the 8 Cent Publishing blog frequently, and will be able to answer questions. I will do my very best to present our readers with the finest work that high school juniors can do!

See you next time readers!
