How I Can Help You Accomplish Your Marketing Goals Through Presentation And Explainer Videos

Are you looking to get an animated video done for your business?

This is easier said than done for a simple reason:

There’s no shortage of animators.

It’s not like the 50's when animation was reserved for art. Now, with the help from the Adobe Suite, everyone and his cat can create a video.

But this is the problem. You don’t just want a video.

Your goal is to get a presentation or explainer video that captures exactly who you are, that positions you as a unique identity in the mind of your prospect and which achieves a certain goal…

… like an opt-in or maybe getting a share on Facebook or a comment on LinkedIn.

It’s not animation you’re after.

It’s what that animation does for you - be it sales or awareness or going viral. And unfortunately, while there are tens of thousands of people that can deliver generic videos with no impact, there are only a few that can help your business and your brand stand out to wow people.

Let Me Introduce Myself

My name is Patrick Doody and I’m an animator.

I’ve been to school, I’ve put in the time and I’ve mastered most of the tools that animators use. 

Nothing special so far.

But the problem is that when I’ve gone in the world, to offer my services, my skills, I’ve discovered that people were not buying animation.

Nobody was interested in my figure drawing sessions or my mastery of Photoshop. My clients were interested in a single thing: propelling their business forward.

My rough awakening was that to serve my clients, people like you, I had to understand not only how to make pretty things but also how these pieces, mostly videos, would serve their goals.

This is now my main focus.

I know you’re not interested in my craft.

I may be an expert in Adobe After Effects, Illustrator, and animation and design principles...

...but the primary reason to work with me is that I’ll create a video that aims to help you accomplish your marketing goals. I want this to be an investment. I don’t want it to be something you put on your website and get nothing out.

I want you to earn 50 or 100 or 1000 times your investment through the results that my videos will get for you. 

The Downside Of Working With Amateurs

But let’s say for a second you don’t give a damn about all of this.

You want the cheapest option.

Your first question when approaching an animator is “how much” and this makes the difference for you.

Well, if this is the case, then I’ll make it easy for you.

  1. Go to Fiverr.
  2. Hire a non-English speaking “animator”.
  3. Get a template based video.
  4. Have a website that looks just as everyone else.

And for some, this is fine. If you don’t care about your brand image or if you have like $50 to spend, again, this works.

But you’ll not get a video that represents what you want.

They won’t really try to figure out what you’re about.

You’ll not get a video that will get engagement on social media. 

You’ll get just a video. Not a tool. Not results producing machine. And this is why a true animator is light years away from the drag and drop “specialists” on sites like Fiverr.

So Who Should You Hire?

Is not your fault you may not know who to hire.

When you see someone charging $250 offering the same service as someone asking $2500, it’s kind of hard to make the difference.

But the sad thing is you will make the difference when you pay for the video and you’ll realize that it is a far cry compared to what you’ve asked for.

And there’s nothing as expensive as the marketing expense you pay for and doesn’t bring you any return.

And if you’ve bought something like this before, I don’t blame you. Most entrepreneurs and marketing directors make the mistake of first paying for the bad option before realizing who is really required to make a presenter video work.

So What Have I’ve Done Before?

I’m a freelance animator.

I’m self-taught and I’ve also gone through formal studies (debt and all).

I have real-life experience.

I've worked locally through Kellett Communications to create work for Dominion Diamond Corporation and with Mikey McBryan of Ice Pilots to help create his first ever film he's directed. 

His film, Pixel Heroes, and the Dominion Diamond Corporation video will be shown in Vegas. 

Here are a few other samples of my work:

Here’s What You’ll Get When Working With Me

  • Your video will be delivered on time, based on a timeframe we decide upon at the beginning of the project.
  • You will get a competitive price, based on my level of experience I can bring to the project.
  • You’ll get the video in all the formats you need. You will have full control over how you use it, including any source files you need.
  • You’ll get your answers replied as soon as possible, as I reply within 24 hours.
  • You will get a video that fits your brand guidelines so it can help you have a cohesive image and story for your company.

Am I The Right Animator For You?

If you want a video that gets likes, shares, and comments on Facebook, then you need this. 

If you want your video to convert towards a sale or an opt-in, then my animation skills can help you. 

If you want to spend as little time hand-holding and let me find what works and adapt it to your unique vision for this project, then you need me. 

If you are tired of working with amateurs that never deliver what you expect and you’re willing to pay a little extra but get a quality product you can use and get results with, then you need this.

If you’re looking for Fiverr budgets, you’re in the wrong place. 

If you already have an animation team, you may not really need me unless they are already working at full capacity. 

And last but not least, if you don’t have a clear strategy of how the video will fill into your marketing, then I may not be able to help you. Without proper copy and a proper funnel, videos rarely get any results.

Let’s Talk About Your Needs

So here’s how I see it.

You can go to Fiverr and hire a cheap animator.

And yes, you’ll save on costs.

But, you’ll pay with your time. You must ask a lot of revisions. You’ll be frustrated that he doesn’t get you, especially if he’s not a native English speaker. You’ll feel like everything is moving too slow and that you’re creating the video yourself instead of having your animator doing it.

Or you can work with me.

If you want to get it right, the first time and have a video that will engage your audience, get your idea across and make your sales, let’s talk.

Let’s have a 30-minute call in which we discuss your needs and see how we can work together. You get started by clicking the link below.

This call is free.

We will get to know each other and see if I'm the right person for you.

Best regards,

Patrick

PS: I hate selling animation as a commodity. This is why I want to have a call with you first. It’s not to sell you on this. You are either sold by my approach or you’re not.

It is for you to know, 100%, that I’m the right person for your project.

I want to see if we’re on the same page and if I can help you accomplish your marketing goals through the use of animation and video.

We run a high-end creative film studio in Yellowknife and are always on the look out for the best talent we can find for any given project. We choose to only work with the best and the brightest that we can get our hands on here in the North and everywhere for that matter. I know that sounds snobby but we don’t care. We care more about making things great, delivering well-told stories and making projects that we would personally want to watch. Specifically, though a person’s talent isn’t really at the top of the list of things we are looking for, we are primarily concerned with someones ability to deliver, deliver it on time and on budget, and to just generally be a good person. These are paramount for us here at Artless Collective. Patrick Doody ticked all those boxes for us and brought a serious level of talent to boot to several of our projects. We’ve got Patrick’s number and we look forward to calling it when we need to raise the creative bar on any of our future projects.

Patrick’s ability to crate multiple styles of animation fairly quickly was a huge asset to my feature length documentary. We wanted a retro style and Patrick knocked it out of the park. He help us add extreme visual value to the project with out costing an arm and a leg. But the proof is on the screen, as one of my most asked questions when viewers screened my film was “Who did your animation? I love it”

Working with Patrick was a great experience. He would prepare many different and creative sketches to ensure our vision was captured perfectly. He was prompt, exceeded timelines and delivered expert material for our organizations. He is experienced working with large groups who provided countless revisions and feedback all which were accounted for and delivered seamlessly.
