The other day I posted the following video on the blog as a teaser/trailer for my upcoming book:
Thought I’d share what I did as it was (essentially*) free…
The entire process took me 60 minutes.
I used Keynote to create the visuals. (I could have gone really fancy-shmancy with the effects but I wanted to do this quickly).
(Keynote is Apple’s version of Powerpoint. I prefer Keynote because of all the great animation and ease of use).
Within Keynote you can record the ‘show’.
(NOTE – I could have recorded my own voice over right into the software which is another awesome feature of Keynote, but the day I created this video I forgot my good microphone at home so decided to use this format instead)
I exported from Keynote as a .mov file, then imported the file into iMovie. Within iMovie I added the music track, exported, and I was done.
(NOTE – You can purchase or download free templates to use in Keynote which look fantastic and super professional, but the style I used is called an ‘ugly’ video sales letter format that marketer Jon Benson made popular.)
* I say ‘essentially’ free because I actually purchased the rights to use the music that’s in this video for a different video I created, but there are plenty of free audio tracks out there.
