Sizzle Reel Wows Viewers
My husband and I are on cloud nine because of the positive responses we’ve received about the sizzle reel for IT HAD TO BE US, an award-winning romantic memoir we wrote under the pen names of Harry and Elizabeth Lawrence. Misha Zubarev, a very talented filmmaker, created and edited this emotionally powerful reel and added beautiful original background music by composer Vadim Zubarev (Misha’s dad).
The one-minute Sizzle Reel is posted on YouTube now. Please click here to view it.
