Book Categories

A trailer can be made to promote almost any kind of book, however, this type of promotion works better for some book categories than others. Fictional books such as science-fiction, fantasy, children's books, crime drama, action-adventure and horror are the primary types of books that lend themselves to BookReels™.

A series that has the same main characters and even common sets and prompts is especially suited for BookReels™.

Visual Styles

Virtualmedia Studios specializes in ultra realistic (lifelike) 3D animation. We also do cartoon and stylized animation.

Ultra Realistic

Our mainstay, ultra realism, is supported by Virtualmedia Studio's existing pool of ultra-realistic virtual actors who, like real actors, can be customized by changing skin parlor, eye color, hair styles, voice and wardrobe. We can also create custom made to order ultra-realistic characters.


This style is used for children's books and uses cartoon type characters and sets. The cartoon characters vary so widely that they must be custom made for each production.


This style of BookReels™ also looks like a cartoon but uses photo-realistic characters and sets – the characters and sets look realistic but would not be mistaken for real life. These are used for fantasy and children books.

This type of trailer uses only narration and props to tell the story. There are no characters or dialog. This style of trailer eliminates the need for character animation and recorded dialog.
