Does anything about my Explainer Video demo, positive or negative, jump out at you?

Anything at all?

Thanks!

Boy oh boy - how many times did you run the mouthful in the 3rd cut before you got the breathing and parsing right!?

The first two sound so similar in pace, pitch and tone that it might be a good idea to drop something very different in right after the first one (and the graphics on that one seem fuzzy, so I'd consider not even using that one).

I know it is hard to find things that are written differently and have a different tone and pace, this is why we sometimes have to create a couple to flesh out the demo to show that range.

Agreed they are all fairly similar in pace and tone, but if that's all you've got (limiting yourself to clips you have on video) I'd say run with it. We could argue positioning till the cows come home, and I'm glad, because I would need the milk after all that arguing.

Thank you, Connie and Bruce.

As for that "mouthful," I got lucky: I took a deep breath and spit it all out and got it on the first take.

And I think I could just drop that second piece, as it sounds so similar to the first. The graphics are fuzzy on the video you saw because that segment came from a video that was smaller than the others, and the demo played enlarged to full screen size.

I've been trying to come up with explainer script material. Finding suitable "here's what we do" stuff online isn't easy, and trying to write some from scratch is even harder.
