Pick His Brain!
I’d like to introduce one of our members, Andy Batuchi, for our next ‘Pick His Brain’ session and I want to thank him for the participation.
Andy is a creative genius. His animation, The Wolf of Wall Street, was shared on this group and the response was phenomenal.
Please check the first comment on this thread.
Although his specialty isn’t SEO related, I am always interested in creative ways to generate leads and his work caught my attention.
Just imagine your lead gen campaign going viral.
If you have any questions related to video creation process, please feel free to pick his brain.
Here are the rules.
1) I’ll let the thread go on until he asks me to stop. Theoretically, this thread can continue until the FaceBook stock value goes to zero.
2) Please, no snarky remarks. I will not tolerate any intentional negativity. We are here to learn from each other’s success and strategies.
3) Please do not PM him and bother him. If you have a private question, ask for his permission on this thread when appropriate.
Do you do voice over for all your videos?
I do, yes
Do you create the characters from scratch?
Most of them yes, apart from the ones inspired from the films.
How long did the production for The Wolf of Wall Street take from concept to finished product?
Took about 1.5 days
What programs do you use?
I draw on an app called flippaclip on my ipad pro and then edit on final cut pro.
What’s the coolest connection that viral video landed you, if any?
They get me connections daily.
But the biggest one so far (I’m keeping this one a surprise till the video drops) all I’ll say is that they’re a guru worth over $50million.
When are u releasin the vids on famous gurus?
All in good time.
Do you do ads with these?
Working on a few projects as we speak
How do you monetize your videos?
They get me leads for custom vid projects, consulting & smma.
What other video would you recommend? (Can be yours or others)
Anything that is emotionally engaging
What’s your personal favorite next to yours?
Hmmm I don’t really have one particular favourite.
It depends on my mood and what I’m trying to do, do you mean any video in general or entrepreneur related?
What’s the process of analyzing your potential customer? How do you find out he’s the right customer?
They have a good product/ service.
They’re in a position to take on more customers but they’re just not engaging with their audience as much as they should be.
What’s your viral formula?
Analysing the market and what they go through, then figuring out how to show them something that isolates a specific emotion – and then cranking that emotion up to the max.
Someone else who is really good at this (but not so entrepreneur related) is Prince EA
How do I put special effects, like moving icons around the screen to emphasize my points. Can I do the whole stuff using only my mobile phone?
Possible to do very simple things on your phone like putting in title overlays.
I’m sure there are some apps, but for anything moving you’re going to need some kind of editing software on a pc or a mac, final cut pro is what I use.
