VIDEO TOOLS

for your Pitching Video.

Keep it SIMPLE. We are not looking for the most fancy design but the best content. It doesn´t matter if your pitching video shows text&graphics with background music or if it shows you talking&explaining.

Here are some ideas and tools that you could use:

  • Recording with your smartphone (with paper & pen support)

The most straight forward thing is to make a video of yourself talking and explaining your solution. You could simply use paper and pen if you want to illustrate something. Ready to go to your project page! Below are some tools that might help you to add a title or other features.
