Hi Roroduck, and welcome to the forum! Man, that's a pretty ambitious first video! I like a lot of things about it, but I have to admit that I'm not a big fan of those automated voices. I understand the appeal though, since I'm so bad at remembering words when I make my videos. There is definitely an advantage to taking whatever time is necessary to get the script right, then let the words flow uninterrupted.

Interesting concept to make it like a TED talk... but I have to wonder if another approach (like the content shown on the screens) might have made it less like a history class and more like a movie. (I guess some people like history classes, but I prefer movies)

I see that this is just part one and there's more to come! I look forward to seeing the rest of the story! Nice job so far!

Thanks so much for the welcome and the valuable input. You are a mind reader as I had to decide between dramactic presentation (that would be great) and the easier pseudo lecture format. At this point I just wanted to go through the whole process and see where I need to learn the most.

My ultimate goal is to animate one of my novels. That will be done dramactic style for sure and I'm already working on scripts and camera cuts for that.

I have one of two more installments of Alessandro to complete that story and then on to the novel.

I agree wholeheartedly about the value of going through the whole process! I think there is great wisdom in jumping right in with an attainable goal that lets you overcome the whole spectrum of scaled down obstacles. Finishing a project is energizing!

And yeah, if you are a novelist, this is probably the best place to start working toward the goal of animating it! There are a couple of long-standing stories in process by forum members that should be released this year, and I think they'll blow you away when you see what's possible.

An interesting way to try things out and create your first Muvizu video


The TED talk presentation is an nice approach and makes sense for the delivery of the material you have chosen. The screens at the side of the stage are very appropriate (and use a technique I haven't tried yet!)

Something you could try for later parts is to have cuts to audience reaction - nodding or talking to the person next to them about a particular point raised in the presentation.

The camera to screen idea is something I wanted to try because the avi on a backdrop didn't work very well.

For sure I intended a larger role for the audience but as more elements were added my machine slowed down and I had to focus on priorities to get it done.

I'm beginning to believe that making small / short scenes and then combining them in a video editing program may be my best choice for the future. Right now I'm on my laptop becasue my desktop is taking hours to render a video experiment with Muvizu

I'm on the same learning curve.

I think it definitely makes sense to split things down into manageable scenes and then stitch them together once you get beyond a few minutes of content.
