Video Genesis Launch Extra Tutorial

Well, Video 1 for Andy Jenkin’s new product launch is out:

I’m busy “de-constructing” the top tips and will have my take and adding specific additional and, of course, Ripping Off The Boss!

It turns out that Andy, Mike, and I are all very much on the same page when it comes to how to create marketing videos that don’t suck. In fact, I ve been teaching (and preaching) almost ALL of the same strategies for the last five years!

Here are several of the main points I’d like to begin highlighting:

1. Sloppy videos just DON’T cut it anymore! Remember one of my main taglines? “Friends Don’t Let Friends Make Crappy Videos!”

2. I ALWAYS create a script. The Message Is The Master…

3. Audio is a HUGE part of your video. If your audio (and narration) stink…your video is doomed.

I’m going to let Andy and Mike handle the video camera stuff and add some value by offering a new method I am now using to create very tight, well planned, visually engaging “presentation style” video content.

Check out this method for recording PowerPoint slides as video and let me know what you think:

This method does require PowerPoint 2010 or higher. Also, if you don’t have the Audacity Audio Editor, you can get it here for free:

What do you think?

Stay tuned…

    As allways, thank you for learning me this tricks.
    But I want to know one thing, when you first recording with audacity, do you watch your presentation? or do you time everything. Because if you don’t see anything and then record the audio it wil not be, (I don’t know the word) in time with the presentation

    Get your audio done first. Then take your script and mark it where you need to hit the space bar in PPT to trigger an animation or slide change.

    Run through it for practice a couple of times to make sure the animation order and effects are what you want and record your final hitting the spacebar as you get to each appropriate spot.

    Lon has great courses and he gives out great tips like this one. It gives you a video with audio that requires about ten times less editing than I used to do before I learned about this from Lon last year.

    Your script and audio need to come first so you can ensure you’re presenting everything you want to cover and then you build your presentation from there just like Lon’s video is showing.

    I really like the sound of Lon’s 2013 Powerpoint recording procedure. Thanks very much for sharing this.
    However for some reason I can’t get it to work.
    I have stop-start played the video 3 times and written out the steps needed. And I’ve tried to do it 3 times. No luck so far, it just won’t run.
    Problems like this frequently turn out to be my fault by not looking or listening properly etc – and I’m willing you keep at it until I get it.
    Has anyone else followed Lon’s video and made this work?
    Just thought I’d ask – best regards, Andrew Smith, New Zealand.
