How to Make a Video Using Video Scribing


Video scribing (or videoscribing or just plain “scribing”) is a pretty cool technique that I’m seeing more and more often online. With this technique, you draw using a screen capturing program or white board and speed it up to match an audio presentation. It requires a little artistic skill, but it’s a great option if you don’t like to be on camera.

It’s also a great option to use as a pattern interrupt. If all of your videos are just you talking to the camera, things can start to get a little boring. Doing a video that’s a little different in terms of format can spice things up.

I always thought that you had to be some kind of video genius to make a video scribing video, but our friend Pat Flynn from Smart Passive Income breaks down the process in the video tutorial below. It’s not easy, but it is manageable even for video newbies like me!

It you love Pat’s video tutorials as much as I do, make sure to pick up a ticket for NMX where he’ll be presenting Proven Methods to Use Free in Your Business to Get More Traffic, More Subscribers and More Customers. It’s a must see for all bloggers, podcasters, and video/web TV series producers!

    Thanks for featuring my video Allison! I appreciate it! If anyone needs any help, let me know. There are services that can do this sort of thing for you, but many are pretty pricey. This is the DIY version, but of course there is a little bit of a learning curve. Once you get it down though, it can be really fun!

      You’re welcome, Pat! It’s a really great tutorial. See you in Vegas!

    Glad you shared this, because most video scribing/explainer video services are extremely expensive – sometimes $2000-$3000 per minutes. Always nice to know there’s a cheaper DIY version for the little guys :).

    Thanks Allison!

      The thanks all goes to Pat for making this video! 🙂

    This is really cool! I have a Bamboo Wacom too and I think I can maximize its use with scribing!

    I am using a piece of software to create video scribes but it cost around $22 per month. I like your way of scribing because I can create my own customized video scribe rather than being limited by the software.

    Thanks for the post Allison.
