A Few Tips on Creating a Good Video

Share this post

A video is one of the first things your backers will see — but that doesn't mean it needs to be a big production. Use your video to connect with your backers, keep it simple, and just talk about what you're making and why you're making it. Above, a host of successful Kickstarter creators give tips on what to do to make your video a compelling one, no matter what your budget.

      When considering a video, at first thought it seems like there's NO WAY that a project can be described fully in a minute and a half. But on second thought, we don't need a full description! Just a few questions to address:

      1. What it is that you want to accomplish or build? Perhaps include some photos or very brief video samples of your progress to date.
      2. Why this is your passion?
      3. How does your life's experience help to accomplish this? Your background in brief.
      4. What are some things that KS funding would be used for? Specifically.
      5. How will the result of the project help others?
      6. What's "in it" for your donors in the near term? A quick highlighting of a few rewards.
      7. What's "in it" for your donors long term? What are they helping to build? Will it be ongoing in some way? Are there "Warm Fuzzies" to be had going forward?
      8. A "Thank You" for watching, and encouragement to join the team with a donation and spread the word!
