I have been copywriting for over 10 years; writing marketing and press releases during my years as a comedian, as well as for corporate and commercial comedy gigs.
I design book trailers, short film trailers for books using multi-media. The copy I write is created out of close consultation with the author. I design the layout and find the best possible images and music to complement the Author’s vision, and promote their book through YouTube, Instagram and the Publisher’s website.
My most recent book trailer is for Juliet Marillier, award winning author of The Sevenwaters Series and Blackthorn and Grim. I have produced two trailers for Juliet’s latest trilogy ‘The Warrier Bards Series’ ( Pan-Macmillan Australia). The first trailer was for the 2019 release of The Harp Of Kings and the second for the sequel released August 2020 – A Dance With Fate. I have also created a book video for her most recent, stand alone book: ‘Mother Thorn – and other stories of courage and kindness’ (Serenity Press)
I spent four years in London, as PA and a website administrator while working at Billy Marsh Associates, writing copy and in charge of e-commerce. I have an extensive history of administration and customer service experience within the Arts Industry both in Australia and London and I am now the website administrator for www.julietmarillier.com
