In early 2019, we will be announcing the release date for Trailmakers on Xbox, and we want to celebrate the announcement with a short trailer. With the amount of creativity we have seen from the Trailmakers community, we thought it would be fun to let you make the trailer. Show those Xbox players what they can look forward to!

We need your help making an Xbox Trailer!

It is completely up to you to decide what kind of trailer you want to make. Something fun? Something scary? Something crazy? Something Xbox-themed? Whatever you think fits a short “Xbox release date reveal trailer”.

We will pick the one we like the most and award an epic Trailmakers Goodie Bag!

The winner will receive a Trailmakers goodie bag containing:

  • A Blue Yeti USB Microphone

  • A Limited Edition Trailmakers T-Shirt

  • An Original piece of signed Trailmakers Artwork

  • A Mystery-Item-From-the-Flashbulb-Office


  1. Something that shows all those Xbox players what they can look forward to in Trailmakers.

  2. Don’t try to show off everything the game has to offer. Pick a theme, situation, or a feeling, and focus on that.

  3. It’s important that the clips are relatively easy to digest for players who have never seen Trailmakers before.

  4. For soundtrack, we suggest using - With a free trial account, you can download all sorts of (watermarked) music there. If your trailer wins, Flashbulb will acquire the license for the track used.

  5. If possible, avoid using text in the trailer.

When you submit a video to the Trailermakers competition, you grant us full rights to use it in any way we like, even if you do not win.
