We’ve created 400+ trailers and countless other projects in design and editing. We enjoy the give-and-take creative process while working with authors. Not sure if we can make a great trailer for you? Here’s what some of our past customers have said.

“What I like most about working with Kim McDougall is her business process. Castelane (formerly Blazing Trailers) is not the first book trailer provider I’ve used, so when I found Kim I already knew what I didn’t want in a video producer. With Kim I don’t have to worry about her putting layers between me and the product or she and the client. With a single point of contact, the work and communication is seamless. Her prices are great, her turnaround is tight, and she allows at least one round of edits after the first draft. If you want something done over again, she’ll even do that. I feel fortunate to have found such a dedicated professional.” September 25, 2011

“I worked with Kim McDougall. She was a real pleasure to work with. We both worked on the script; I found the royalty free music (but she can do that as well), and all the special effects are hers. Kim and I spent many days going back and forth on music cues, statue choices, etc. She put in a lot of work. I give her a five-star review.”

“Thanks, Kim. I absolutely, positively WILL be recommending your services to my authors and others. Very nice work!”

James S. Parker, Author of Relic of Darkness

“Kim McDougall is a multitalented individual from writer to website diva, with several other talents in between. She has two of my book trailers up on her site. I was amazed how quickly she got them up, utilizing information from my websites in order to best promote my books. The end result was as pleasing to the eye as it was professional. She is always willing to help and is literally an email away. Being a most-caring person, she always has time to help. As soon as my other books are in print, I will have her put up their trailers, as well.”

Candace Gold, Author

“Kim McDougall of Castelane (formerly Blazing Trailers) produced the video trailer for my book The Little Man In the Map. She did an excellent job at a very reasonable price. She took the time to find out about the book and what I envisioned. She made great suggestions and gave appropriate advice and she ended up producing a trailer that captured exactly what I had hoped. She was very pleasant to work with, and when she made a commitment she came through as she had promised. I will definitely have her produce my next trailer.”

Andrew Martonyi, Author

“Kim McDougall is a joy to work with. All my communications with her have received prompt responses and action. I display 7 different book trailers on her website, which I consider to be tastefully presented and professional in every way. You can trust Kim to have your best interests at heart.”

Clayton Bye, Author and Business Consultant

“Kim McDougall designed a musical trailer for my picture book, “Rattlesnake Jam,” and it turned out absolutely terrific. The music she chose was so cool, and it fitted the book’s quirky, fun characters and plot, perfectly. Kim chose exactly the right illustrations to use, and her captions were right on the money. I would recommend Kim’s book trailer expertise and talent to anyone. She is fun and informative to work with, and knows how to make your trailer tempt viewers into wanting to see and read MORE!”

Margot Finke, Author

“Kim is wonderful to work with. She pays attention to details and delivers excellent work. She is flexible to work with in terms different requirements. My book is a Chinese-English bilingual book and she put the English and the Chinese part together in a coherent way. I am definitely signing up with Kim for another book trailer for my second book.”
