Chris shares with us how was his experience producing his first demo video ever:
Thanks for the high-spirited well wishes. It was actually a really fun project, and you gave me the confidence (and the know how) to tackle it.
It took me about 7 weeks from the time I started writing the script to final version, where one week was writing the script, one week to finalize the voiceover, and the rest was animation time.
I hired 3 voiceover actors off of Fiverr before I found my guy.
Can you believe it only cost me $5? Neither can I!
The most difficult part is the storyboarding for sure.
It’s tough to figure out just the right visualizations to convey a complex concept.
The simplest part was choosing the right voiceover, though that’s not simple at all.
Everyone brings their own personality to the party, so it’s tough to find the right fit.
For the illustrations, I hired an animation studio from Guru.com. They did a fantastic job! They actually found the music and came up with the harlem shake idea.
The Grumo course was most helpful in helping me to write the script. I followed your formula very closely, as you can probably tell. It paid off!
Aside from the Grumo course, I watched maybe a hundred other demo videos, taking note of what gave each that special flare. I became good at separating good animators from great ones.
Thanks for your interest and feedback, as well as your blessings, and thanks for being you and doing what you do!
