Trading Pit Hand Signals book video trailer

We've taken a long while to finishing the Trading Pit Hand Signals book trailer but it's great to finally release it as the video really captures the depth of the book.  Hopefully you agree and get a sense for the pit because we put audio from the wheat pit at the KCBT throughout the minute long video. 

The reason behind the release delay, besides a multitude of life's distractions, was that we were going for an entirely different concept and shot film for that other concept a year ago.  My favorite rap album, Ice-T's O.G. Original Gangster, has a pretty funny second track entitled "First Impression"  (some NSFW language on that link) which we aimed to recreate by talking about the trading pits with the book serving as a prop.  Although we came close after some attempts, we could never nail the script concept for what our expectations were, so after a year sitting on that footage it was time to just push out something different. 

If you're interested in picking up the book, the link to it on Amazon is here and the ebook link at iTunes is here.  And if your interest level isn't that deep then that's cool as well, I only want people buying it who are really into it.

Besides helping me w/the trailer, my bud Jack also has recently created a great SF based webseries entitled Tech Boom which is absolutely hilarious and based upon the tech scene here in SF.  One of my favorite episodes is below and runs only a couple minutes, some slight NSFW language in there.
