Basic Screencapture

Extras

Sweet  Upgrades

eLearning Segment

Sometimes you need to explain a conceptual idea before getting into the nitty gritty tutorial aspect. An eLearning (otherwise known as explainer) segment is perfect for this!

Please Note:

If your video is mostly conceptual, then please check out my dedicated eLearning offering:

F.A.Q.s

Do you always need a voiceover?

This entirely depends on the video! Certainly, for short, snappy and to-the-point videos, you may not need a voice over.

Who does the voiceover?

I can record a voiceover in my studio, in which case it will be American English Female. Alternatively, we can use only text on screen, hire a voice actor or, in some circumstances, have someone from your team do the V.O.

What about subtitles?

Subtitles are not automatically included, but can be added in the following ways:

  1. I can add the words to the video itself (small added fee)
  2. Depending on how/where you will upload the video, I can add the words to the video player so that viewers can see subtitles overlaid IF they press the CC button on the player (small added fee).
  3. Alternatively, you can add subtitles to your player (requires some technical skills).

Can I have a background music track?

Sure! I can offer you a variety of royalty free music options for a small extra fee. Please note that I can’t use any copyrighted music (such as popular pop songs) in a video, but I can find background tracks that have a similar vibe to what you like.

What do I need to have ready?

You need to be clear about what should be explained in your tutorial. To be most effective, a tutorial should cover only one subject. It is better to have a series of shorter tutorials, each addressing one issue, than one lengthy one. If you are unsure of anything, but know that you need a tutorial, get in touch!

How do I write a script?

If you already know the words needed in the voiceover, or on screen, that is great! You can share your script with me. If you need help with a script, I also offer a tutorial script writing service. This is the best way to ensure your video is short, effective and to-the-point! Check it out, here:
