I had grand plans to make my first infomercial. It’s a lot harder than it seems. For this project, I used VideoLeap a new video editing software (imagine if iMovie & snapchat had a baby). it wasn’t hard to learn and it has a lot of tools on the freemium version. I recommend that you check it out. I filmed and treated in Videoleap and then did my voice over and final edits in iMovie.
I watched a lot of infomercials for inspiration and used treatments to get the look and feel. The only piece I wanted to add but didn’t like the cut off was a “user testimonial”.
fine print: no littles were harmed in the making of this commercial
