Official Airbnb Trailer

Have you all noticed the trend of books that have little movie trailers to promote them lately? Well being the avid reader that I am I love it and hope it catches on.

When my former potato coworker and good friend Ellis (who just so happens to be super talented when it comes to the entire video making process) came to Hawaii I knew I wanted him to create a little trailer for my airbnb treehouse listing.

I invited a friend from Idahome, Tara who now lives in Maui to bring her beau and spend a few days exploring the Big Island while Ellis followed them with a camera and I tried my best to stay out of the shot.

I just received the final product a couple days ago and I love it – I hope you do too!

Mahalo,

Kristie
