Service Description

I use the following process to write your script:

1. I learn and fully understand what your business does and the benefits you offer your customers. You will get a script that identifies your customer's problem and how you solve it.

2. A compelling call to action: I write a clear direction on what customers should do when they're ready to move forward, for example: "Talk to us" "Start your project today" "Contact our sales team to find out more". These are all calls to action that get customers knocking on your door.

Each video has a spoken tone is well paced, doesn't rush, and delivers everything that needs to be said, clearly. This is not an accident - I make an initial draft of the voice over and then re-write it over and over until it is perfect - and that's just the first draft you'll see.

4. I draw storyboards that show what you will be seeing in your video. I offer thumbnail sketches or 4-panel storyboards, depending on your budget. "A picture is worth a thousand words" and my storyboards convey the visual look and feel for your video for your client and production team. I produce animatics, which are storyboards set to the voice-over, so you can see the timing and pacing of the video before it goes into production.

5. Optional guidance on selecting the right video producer or animator for your video. I can point you to...
