A Clever Way to Create Awesome, Animated Videos
Modern, promotional videos are a great way to capture attention and endorse your business, product, or online course. Traditionally, producing an animated video required a fat wallet, specialized skills, and expensive equipment. Animated videos were great but not realistic for entrepreneurs, small business owners, or anyone on a tight deadline.
Being able to produce animated videos quickly, easily, and independently is a powerful and useful skill for anyone seeking to build or grow an online business or course. Learning how to do this in an easy-to-use program you likely already have is almost too good to be true. Almost.
Suitable for all PowerPoint users, this course is straightforward and to the point. Unlike many online courses, my lectures include no tangents, no spiraling, and no bloat. This course consists of 14 concise lectures, and in less than an hour you'll learn to make awesome, animated videos.
Starting with an empty PowerPoint template, this course will break down the steps required to prepare your presentation for high definition (HD) video creation. With these basics mastered, the course will teach you how to add, animate, and automate text, graphics, and objects.
The next stage will be audio, where you'll work with sound effects, background music, and voice-over narrations. Though all of these elements can be managed in PowerPoint, some people find it easier to pull them into a video-editing software. (Just to be safe, this course will teach both!)
The last step to the process is exporting your video—optimal settings and a few considerations before wrapping up your video.
Complete with project files and a free 15-slide video template, this course will fully prepare students who complete it with the skills and knowledge to start creating (and even selling) animated videos.
