“Mel’s attention to detail is exemplary. The course content is 100% video with a forum for questions at the end of each video tutorial. Mel has a uniquely “feet on the ground,” personable style with emphasis always being on the message rather than the messenger. The tutorials contain much more detail than the Techsmith tutorials and provide “the back story” to many of the software features. An excellent course for screencasting beginners through to (almost) experts who want to learn to create videos up to corporate quality.”
Richard Andrew, TTA Online Course Creator & Facilitator
Go beyond the classroom! Learn how to transform your live presentations, workshops and live training courses to a digitized format that’s easily shared, easily consumed and potentially profitable. The inventory never gets used up because it’s digital. And, the classroom doors never close because it’s on the web! Build authority, leverage influence, grow your niche audience by learning how to digitize your knowledge and get it online.
Don’t be boring. Learn to kick your presentations up a notch from run-of-the-mill online presenters by overlaying quality audio and synchronizing live action web video to compel your audience. Listen, video screen capture presentations (screencasts) are versatile and a lot easier to produce and distribute today than they were just 5 years ago. But because it’s relatively easy to produce it’s not a wonder that about 8 out 10 screencasts on the internet today are booorring with little more than a disembodied voice and a mouse cursor going for them. You’re primed to raise the bar by following the techniques I show you in this course. You’ll not only learn tips and techniques for producing quality audio/video screencasts, but you’ll also learn how to synchronize live action web video to your screencast just like the one below.
Be compelling with Picture-in-Picture. As a member, you will learn my production workflow, editing tips and synchronization secrets that will allow you to produce the acclaimed picture-in-picture video overlay technique without the creepy “airline pilot / fishbowl” byproduct that’s run of the mill for everybody else.
“(Mel’s)…technique… was so overwhelming of all the videos, that was by far my favorite. And I was thinking, I want to figure out how to do that. That’s something I want to learn how to do… If I could do a video as good as him… that would be a good goal for me.”
Steve Garvey, Videographer and Techsmith Screenchamp 2012 contest judge
“The one that won was well chosen… Alot of people, when they make videos, they kind of hide… This comes across as very honest… I like seeing people use video to share an opinion that was well supported, and he did a great job with this…”
Rushton Hurley, Speaker / Trainer, Techsmith Screenchamp 2012 contest judge
“The winner here really did connect with his audience… I think that’s something that all of us should begin to incorporate…”
Scott Skibell, Professional Screencaster / Chief Blogger, Skillcasting; Techsmith Screenchamp 2012 contest judge

The Last Word
I don’t want you to get the wrong impression here. This isn’t a “get rich quick” program. The value of the web video screen capture presentations you produce will be proportional to the quality of your content and the importance it holds for your audience. My offer to you isn’t a quick path to riches. But it is a quick path to eliminating the mystery and the barriers associated with “not knowing how” to digitize your knowledge for distribution to many others who can benefit from what you know.
