Todd shared with us a little bit of his experience creating his first demo video:

How long did it take to put together?
I worked on it intermittently over the last three weeks, but I’d guess about 80 hours total.
I am not an artist AT ALL, so the drawing and Adobe Illustrator were the hardest parts.
Since I am somewhat familiar with Flash, the After Effects and even Final Cut Express made more sense to me.

How did you record the voice over?
I recorded the voice over just as you recommended, with the VoiceRecord app on my iPhone under the covers on my bed.

What was the simplest part?
Simplest part was the Final Cut Express editing as I’ve done some video editing before.

How did you find about Grumo?

I got a lot of After effects help from the Adobe site and also

Again – I wouldn’t even have TRIED this without your awesome course. You really inspired me and also made me feel like it was “possible”.

Thanks a lot for taking the Grumo course and sharing your work with us.
Much success with HandPik!
