Making a gameplay trailer

I'm close to finishing my game and would like to make a gameplay trailer for it.

Does anyone know a good software to record gameplay on an iPhone? Or is there someone I can pay (not a lot) to make one for me?

just plug it into quicktime and choose as source and record.

Please follow me on twitter @JamesDestined I post lots of development from both my game creation and professional development.

Quicktime will do the capture, you need an iOS 8 device and Yosemite.

You then edit it with a video editor such as iMovie, which has built in settings for export in format compatible with App Store previews as well as youtube trailers.

If you haven't used iMovie before then allow yourself a short learning curve to get the hang of it. Just a day or two will make a big difference, enabling you to add a few fancy transitions, titles, and maybe even a soundtrack or voice-overs too.

Apple have a good guide:
