Video & Voice Over

Access Greetings Presentation


Written by Tom Cellie

I got into developing media out of sheer necessity.  You see I always had some new idea that I wanted to roll out on the web and I always had to pay somebody to help me with the media.  Well to many ideas and too little money and this necessity became the mother of me reinventing myself as a work from home mufti media geek.  I sat that to set this video up.  Access Greetings is an endeavor that was brainstormed by my partner Bill.  It is a BRILLIANT idea that needs funding for it to mature.  As a matter of fact, when Bill approached me to develop the Access Greetings site, I had to decline because I was busy doing retail projects. 

Every New Vision Needs A Vehicle To Share It

Of course the AG video needed to be created and while my time was little, I told myself that if I could do the AG video in a day or less, that I would make the time.  So, here we have a presentation short on budget and time that I hope still conveys the message and leaves the viewer wanting to know more.

My Task

Convey the image of Access Greetings in an informative and low pressure way.  Motivate the User to visit the site and create a free profile.

 My Thoughts on the Project

I didnt create the logo but I DID enhance it with some warm gradients.  Reds and pinks that are soothing and a little sensuous.  (it was around Valentines Day...perhaps that had something to do with my choices).  I didnt take time to make any motion graphics or animated lower thirds, this was a down and dirty sweat equity job that I needed to deliver fast to clear my plate for paying clients.  The background music was purposely developed to lull the user and leave them feeling relaxed and warm.  Even my voice over was specifically laid back in places.

We Net Profits Video


Written by Tom Cellie

The Project

We Net Profits is a home based business opportunity that is soon to be launching.  The product is all down loadable from ebooks to audios. 

My Tasks

Improve the script and interject a feeling of urgency and excitement.  Voice over: My vocal inflections convey enthusiasm and excitement with a medium to fast pace delivery of the script. I am thinking about the soundtrack as I am laying the voice over down.  Imagining the instrumentation, style, pace etc.

The Philosophy

Over the years I have learned that at least 60% of what sells any video is the sound that goes with it so I have recently been laboring over the audio almost as much as the video.  Here I created a fast paced soundtrack with a ton happening in the stereo field.  I also used starts and stops as well as extravagant use of sound FX to keep the user glued to the presentation.  I kept it down to three fonts and 2 colors for all text.  I believe the graphics are very crisp which lends to the tech theme of the company.

The Outcome

The client loved it on the first look.  Literally no changes were made from the initial edit.  I will clean up some pans and dimension issues and render it to FLV.  The client told me that this compensation video was so informative and effective that he wont need to create an "Opportunity" video.  I think I just slicked myself out of more money ;-)
