Video description

Video description: Trailer for “A Tiny Man in a Giant Land.” 35 seconds. Title card with the words “Podcast Episode” and “Genre: Fairy Tale” is displayed at top. Story tagline is displayed at bottom. Tagline reads, “Two cousins decide to visit the mysterious isle of giants, and to steal portions of treasure small enough to escape a giant’s notice, but large enough to make their fortunes.” The title card and tagline fade. Scan of ink drawing, digitally colored. A person at right and facing left, partially seen from waist to forehead, holds the handle of a Y-shaped slingshot in the extended left arm. The right hand stretches back the sling portion, which contains a stone, and a small human figure lying with their back on the stone. In the background is a sunny blue sky, with a light scattering of rain, and to the left, rocky terrain obscured by fog that extends to bottom edge. A watermark of the word “Storyfeather” appears along bottom of outstretched arm. Subtitles appear in time with music and narration at the bottom: “I expected to die upon the sea. I envisioned maelstroms striking from above, monsters of the deep, rising to claim us from below. I envisioned a journey so long that the salt of the sea would cure my very soul until it was so dry that it and that boat would crack and crumble and vanish into the sea.” Website URL appears at bottom center throughout and fades as story title appears at top and text box appears at center displaying the words, “Listen on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, iHeartRadio, Spotify, Stitcher, and so on. Or listen on my Podcast page at storyfeather.com.”

“We will live in their house, as mice live in ours. Wes hall never want for anything. One slice of their bread could feed us for half a year.” Slubber slapped me on the back. “Cousin, I have always thought you clever, but this is beyond clever. This is true brilliance.”

“Mice. What if there are giant mice?” Strangely, the thought had not occurred to me, as many useful thoughts had not. “Or worse yet…cats?”

Portal Button. Elongated rectangle. Rings of colored light emanate from the center. Inset on the left, an embossed circle with the Storyfeather feather logo, a feather quill shaped like the letter "f" with a drop of ink hovering below its tip. The circle is bordered with dots and dashes and casts a shadow. To the right of the image, the word "Definitions." At top right, the word "Year." Below "Year," the numeral "6."
