Course Description

Getting a demo video produced professionally can costs thousands of dollars which unfortunately many startups cannot afford to spend.

Professional animation software like After Effects, Flash, or Maya is expensive and too complex to learn.

In this course I’m going to teach you how to create an awesome animated demo video with just Keynote.

Keynote is cheap, $20 bucks, super simple to use, but comes with a great set of animation tools

I’ll show you how I have animated one of our most popular demo videos (PadMapper) using just Keynote.

We will go over the entire production process, from how to write an effective script that is fun, concise and sells, all the way to how to publish your video for maximum impact.

We will cover:

  • How to write an awesome script
  • How to storyboard your script
  • How to record voice over
  • How to illustrate in Keynote
  • How to animate in Keynote
  • How to record/edit your animation
  • How to add sound effects
  • How to pick a music track
  • How to export/publish your video

In a few hours you will learn everything you need to produce an awesome demo video, will save thousands of dollars by doing it yourself, and will have fun in the process.

Let’s do it!
