One of the unsung characters of The Murder Plague is the city of Orlando, setting for most of the narrative and action, and video producer Casey Porter has made it a star in the upcoming book trailer.
Orlando is like a troubled actress, who puts on Cinderella’s makeup, wig and gown during the day and then goes home at night to a life of scraping by and making it work. The glittery, family-friendly city the world sees is all an act, and she’s very good at it.
Casey decided to add some images of Orlando to the video, including this one of the Orange County Courthouse looking just a little creepier than normal, with the soft darkness of late dusk. The images work perfectly in what I wanted the video to say.
