These are a couple of TV adverts commissioned by Macmillan Publishers to promote the famous detective novels by Peter James. The series takes place in Brighton and incidentally they all have the word ‘dead’ in it. Like for the other book trailers we’ve done for them, we used a combination of stock footage with live action and incidental visual effects to convey the plot of the novel.
