STRONG SCRIPTS = STRONG VIDEOS

LEARN WHAT YOU NEED TO SUCEED

If you are creating video content but haven’t taken the time to learn the fundamental skill of script writing for video, you are absolutely wasting a lot of time and leaving money on the table.

Chances are good that you face the all-too common trade-off: how to create a high-quality video without spending too much time on the production?

Maybe you worry about wasting time on a video creation that is overly complex and long. But creating a solid foundation under your video in the early parts of the process will actually save you a lot of time in the end.

On top of the worries around wasting time, you probably also believe that you create high-quality videos without a script. If you are a genius that might be true. But for the rest of us mortals, we need to understand our viewers and transform that insight into a clear structure for our video.

Video scripts for explainer videos are as foundational as water for instant coffee. It’s gonna be one dry video, if you don’t add the one ingredient that makes all the difference. Scripts are step 1 for your videos—not matter if you create videos for marketing, e-learning or entertainment.

Sadly, I see a lot of half-baked videos coming from my students of “Go Beyond Vyond“. Not because the animations don’t work—it’s a clear structure that’s missing.

That’s why I created Strong Scripts.

With Strong Scripts, I’ll share my best templates, tips and tricks accumulated over 3 years of creating more than 300 videos for high-ticket clients. I wrote the scripts and learned the craft through hands-on experience. And practicality, utility and pace is the focus of this course.

Strong Scripts is your shortcut to master the craft of writing effective scripts for videos.

 

I'M RUED RIIS

HOW I GREW MY VIDEO BUSINESS

Teaching myself the process of animation video creation changed my life.

Back when I was still in college, I worked for a large accounting company. A colleague asked me for help around finishing up a video, she was creating. 

The tool she used was GoAnimate (the old name for Vyond), and I started getting good at the tool. Before long, I had finished the video, and it was promoted by the company and got 60.000+ views on Youtube.

I was hooked. On the side, I started making complete videos for a friend’s web agency, where he’d bundle a website with an explainer video for the customer’s front page. 

I’d write the script. I’d record the voice-over. And I’d make the animations that visualised the script, I had written.

Before long, the orders were lining up, and I got way too busy to keep up with his video requests and decided to raise my prices and go solo. My video agency was born and with it, my first entrepreneurial adventure. 

Fast forward a couple of years, we were 3 full-time employees and 4 part-timers. Over time, I realised that I enjoyed online teaching more than serving clients, so I decided to close the agency and go all-in on creating courses based on our combined learnings as an agency.

Script writing was always the reason for a videos success or failure. Our animation videos could never become better than the underlying script that supported it.

With 300+ scripts behind me, I’m now ready to share everything I’ve learned along the way.

FORGET ABOUT SLIDES AND TALKING-HEADS

I set out to create a course that was both insightful and fun. Too many of the courses, I’ve taken in the past have either been a series of static slides. Or a person talking to the camera for hours. 

That’s not something you want to spend your precious time on. No, online courses are more effective and engaging when humor, animation and insights go hand in hand. 

It took 4 months to produce this course—because of all the animations. But I love the end-result and believe that this is what the future of e-learning is going to look like. 

Here is an example of a lesson where you get a taste of how the course is delivered.

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR

E-LEARNING PROFESSIONALS, ANIMATORS, MARKETERS, and MORE!

This course is for video creators who create short videos for the web and value efficient production. It is not for traditionally educated movie makers who work with longer formats for the big screens.

Your use-case doesn’t matter — scriptwriting is a skillset that serves educators, marketers and content creators equally well— but the course examples primary revolve around e-learning and marketing, as these are the fields I have the most experience with and best examples from.

What it comes down to is this: I don’t want to sell you anything that you cannot benefit from. 

That’s simply not how I want to do things. I want you to succeed. And if you are not in a position where the price of the course quickly pays for itself, you should probably not enroll. 

When you are ready, I’ll be here for you.
