    Member of the Forbes Business Council | +$200M raised | +36,000 features | +80B media impressions I'm an experienced PR specialist with over ten years of experience working alongside names like Stephen Hawking, Keira Knightley, Queen, and the EU Parliament. I've raised over $200M for public & charity client projects—and I'm continuing to build award-winning PR campaigns today with my team, XWECAN. Cumulatively, I've helped my clients gain over 9 million followers on major social media platforms in just the last few years. My team consists of former Disney and United Nations executives; CNN, FT, and Forbes journalists; and creatives who've worked with Whoopi Goldberg, Matthew McConaughey, Kevin Spacey—even US Presidents. We've leveraged our deep trust network to get our clients over 40 billion media impressions in 2022-2023, and would be happy to do the same for you. What I do for my clients is simple: I help them go the extra mile & garner the kind of recognition that money cannot buy, but PR can achieve in an organic, targeted way. If you're interested in making that kind of splash, I'm currently open both to 1-1 consultations and/or a more collaborative, long-term structure through XWECAN. --- A few of my case studies: 1. Co-founded the United Nations' Asteroid Day with Queen’s Dr. Brian May, Apollo 9 astronaut Rusty Schweickart, B612's Danica Remy, and Prof. Stephen Hawking. The International Astronomical Union then renamed an asteroid in my name (the "8664 Grigorijrichters"). The event was covered in 35,000+ news stories and received 50+ billion media impressions. 2. Helped Stephen Sutton MBE’s fundraiser campaign reach 6,000+ news outlets and receive 4+ billion media impressions. 3. Teamed up with Stephen Fry, Alan Cumming, Dame Judi Dench, Nadia Murad, and Dr. Brian May to save 2,000 children from European refugee camps. We then relocated more than two hundred children by coordinating 600+ simultaneous news stories and garnering over 500 million media impressions. For the occasion, I also produced the first-ever music video for Freddie Mercury's classic song "Is this the world we created?" which premiered at the EU Parliament. 4. Secured the inventor of the World Wide Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, as a keynote speaker for Fujitsu's first ever Technology Summit. 5. Placed stories about the European Space Agency’s “Hera Mission,” the world’s first-ever asteroid deflection test, in 2,000+ outlets totalling 4+ billion media impressions. More recently, I've also involved myself heavily in blockchain & crypto PR, and consider myself an expert in the space. Some examples: 1. Generated 4.5 million anniversary event attendees for Binance, the world's leading blockchain & cryptocurrency company. 2. Secured over sixty bylined articles in a handful of months for a now-well-known young web3 CEO, making a household name of a crypto newcomer. 3. Built world-class publicity for a new author by getting their first book featured in Newsweek, FOX News, Huffington Post, People, and ABC News. My expertise is varied and wide-ranging. XWECAN is currently working with clients across a variety of industries, including Web3, technology, finance, climate change, food, lifestyle, charity, mental health, pharma, and professional services. I work with big corporations, small businesses, startups, scaleups, entrepreneurs and personal brands. Whatever your size, and whether you're a founder, an author, a therapist, an influencer, or a politician—if it's a cause I believe in, I will help you. Our media networks are especially strong across US (North America), EU (especially Germany), the UK, GCC (especially UAE/Saudi Arabia/Qatar), and Asia. High-profile personalities I've worked with include: QUEEN, US President Clinton, Stephen Hawking, Julian Lennon, Whoopi Goldberg, Jack Black, Brian May, Kevin Spacey, Keira Knightley, Ron Howard, and Peter Gabriel. Lastly, some sizeable firms I've personally worked with include: Vodafone, Fujitsu, Sapien Labs, United Nations, MTV, SONY, Netflix, SpaceX, NASA, ESA, Well Health, Binance, MWC, GoPro, Cannes, Vancouver Film School, Old Vic Theatre, TikTok, Facebook, Google, and YouTube. Thank you for the time! Send me a message out if you'd like to get in touch. All the best. - Grig

    Does this sound like you? You tried to create your own software tutorials and demos in-house, but became overwhelmed with the time-consuming process and the daunting learning curve of the tools involved--or they just ended up looking terrible and amateur. You're not alone. Immersed in this daily, it's second nature to me. I ease your burden by taking this major responsibility promptly off of your "to-do" list! My mission is to help SaaS/cloud based software companies attract, nurture, and retain customers using tech-savvy and strategic video solutions. My tech-oriented team and I, blending computer engineering expertise with a love for SaaS software, leverages professional execution, lean processes, and innovative technology. I don't run a traditional "video production company". We thrive in technical writing, creating demo environments, hosting software on virtual machines, and delivering 4K 60fps software captures and final products with our high-end graphics hardware. I can write and execute on technically advanced video topics with minimum guidance. I'm a geek who will get along with your developers! Mixing technical prowess with creative flair, we produce easy-to-understand, visually engaging software demos that your prospective and current customers will appreciate. My core offerings include software demos, walkthroughs, tutorials, training content, and app preview videos for mobile in select cases - all in 4K software capture or using animated UI/UX concepts from Figma. We do not do live videography/camera work. WHAT MAKES WORKING WITH ME DIFFERENT: As a creative technologist with a computer engineering background, I take an analytical approach to video creation. I've merged technical knowhow with a creative passion for video to create a unique value proposition for SaaS companies. I can quickly grasp technical concepts and hardware/software architectures, along with the ability to boil down complex software tutorials, technical training, and product demos. Most video production companies do not have extensive technical backgrounds, causing you to handhold and explain your technology, eating up much of your valuable time. + We understand the technical side of your product, so you don't have to spend time explaining it to us. + We specialize in creating screen recordings and setting up unique environments that accurately showcase your product's features and capabilities + We understand the importance of accuracy and attention to detail when it comes to representing your product through video, and our technical background ensures that your product is represented accurately" Here are the four types of SaaS videos we specialize in: - Product Demos/Software Overviews: introduce someone to your product at a high level, a perfect sales tool - Onboarding: get your new customers up to speed quickly and keep them as recurring revenue subscribers. Reduce constant Zoom calls and 1:1 support and automate through video. - Software Tutorial/How-To: from a deep dive single video to an entire training library, educate your customers, nurture, and retain them. - New Product Features/Introductions: a unique and effective Customer Success tool that renews customer excitement. WHO I WORK WITH: When providing video creation and consulting services, I work with: + SaaS companies + Technical and online learning companies + Software businesses Each of these businesses can benefit from the four types of videos we produce. I prefer to work with established tech startups with traction who understand the need for professional video content that helps visualize, educate, and sell their technology to consumers and investors. Also--although we can produce many different types of videos, we're only specializing on the four videos described above. There are many generalist video producers here on Upwork who can help you with a variety of tasks, but we're really good at videos for SaaS/enterprise software companies and the four types I listed above. HOW TO WORK WITH ME: Reach out to me here, or simply invite me to a job you have posted on Upwork. Thank you! NOTE: I am currently only supporting software/SaaS companies and/or any company who offers a software/SaaS product internally to their employees or externally to clients. I specialize in software demos, technical onboarding, and user tutorials. If you do not fall within this specialty area, I will be unable to support you at this time. Thank you!

    Hi, I'm Holly! A desire for a life in Film and TV began when I was 10 wherein I would record short films of myself. Now I am a highly advanced video editor, proficient in many industry standards software including but not limited to: Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas Pro, Adobe After Effects and Adobe Photoshop. I have also dabbled in some audio techniques using programs such as iZotope RX and Adobe Audition. I specialize in editing, able to provide you with experienced and perfect results. I am very tenacious and will work to get the job done. I had a personal project which lasted 2 years, in which I filmed over 800 clips and had to manually key every single one of them, doing the entire VFX, grading, cinematography, editing - both audio and visual processes, myself. I'm very eager to learn and I won't be satisfied until I reach your expectations.

Getting Started With Video Production

Ready to start creating high-quality videos for your business? Whether they’re for marketing or training, customer service or social media, videos are one of the most effective ways to get your message across. And it’s easy to get a polished video produced from start to finish entirely with contractors. Here, we’ll give you the tools and tips you need to get started.

What type of video should you produce?

First, think about the message you’re trying to communicate and the best way to visually represent that message. A few formats you might consider are:

  • Live action uses footage you capture (e.g., a product video) or source online (e.g., stock clips edited along with a storyline seen here)
  • Animated uses motion graphics or digital animation, like a whiteboard video
  • Hybrid video uses a combination

How to get a video produced?

What goes into getting your video made will depend on the above, but generally include:

  1. Pre-production: First, draft a creative brief and scope, which will inform your timeline and the talent you’ll need. A video producer can be a great source for guidance and product management as you navigate the process.
  2. Storyboarding: A storyboard tells your editor, animator, or videographer how you want your video to flow. A storyboard artist can create a series of sketches that represent each shot you have in mind, along with any dialogue or voice-over (VO). These can be as detailed or loose as you like, with directions for camera angles, lighting, and transitions.
  3. Scriptwriting: Whether your video is all text or voice-over, you’ll need a script that outlines the dialogue in a succinct, engaging way. Find a scriptwriter to polish up the non-visual (but very important) parts of your video
  4. Voice-over: Hire a professional voice actor or narration specialist to deliver your script. Pay close attention to things like cadence and tone—you want the voice-over to reflect your brand and your message.
  5. Videography and direction: For live action videos, having someone who understands angles, shots, lighting, and expertise with frame rates, lenses, stabilization gimbals, filters, and ultra-HD resolutions like 4K.
  6. Animation: An animator will bring your storyboards to life and line up visuals with your voice-over. Animation can overlap with motion graphics, which also includes animated visual elements and typography.
  7. Audio editing: Many videos only need a bit of music to be a finished product, but those that require voice-over, sound effects, or have live-action audio can require the help of a more skilled sound editor to ensure the right mics, mic covers, and recording equipment are set up so wind and background noise don’t ruin your audio.
  8. Editing: Here’s where a video editor brings it all together: footage, audio, and motion graphics like title cards or subtitles. A video editor will ensure the right tempo, transitions, color grading, and sequence.

Estimating your video’s cost

Here are a few cost factors to consider as you frame up your budget.

Cost Factor #1: The type of video you’re producing

A full-blown live action video with videography, storyboarding, and scripts will be more expensive than short stock clips edited together with transitions and music. Similarly, it can be easier to produce interviews and screen capture videos than it is to create original animation and motion graphics.

Cost Factor #2: Expertise and technical know-how

Do you need an editor or a videographer-slash-editor? How involved are the concepting and story arc going to be? Do you need next-level 3D animation or live-action sound recorded in a tricky environment? When it comes to video, expect to get what you pay for. More polished, high-definition video with complex requirements like transitions and timed cuts require a bit more know-how.

Cost Factor #3: Live action videography, direction and production needs

Live action videos will require from a production standpoint than videos that can be created from stock clips on a computer. Shooting high-definition footage may require professional videography equipment, and you’ll have to take into account talent, locations, studio requirements, props, costumes, and other technical details that go into filming live actors.

Who to Hire on Your Video Production Team

Have a video marketing strategy ready to launch? It’s time to build a bench of skilled talent to start creating your content.

Whether you have a few video experts in-house and need extra talent to supplement or you’re looking for video experts to help with the entire process, freelance talent might be a good option because you can find the skills needed for each step of the process.

Who do I need to create my video?

In case you’re not sure exactly which services you need, here are some considerations:

  • Does your video require original footage and videography?
  • Are you mostly using motion graphics, animation, and screen capture?
  • Do you primarily need editing of live action clips?
  • How much of your video will be scripted voice-over or narration?

Narrowing down what your video will include will help you match your requirements to the skills you need. Below is a quick rundown on the types of video freelancers you might need.

Video Producers

Video producers can provide guidance, insight, delegation, and product management as you navigate the video process. For more complicated video productions, they can be a valuable liaison between you and all the talent contributing to the video, and can help with everything from renting equipment to storyboarding and editing. Find a great video producer and you’re setting yourself up for success.Video Editors

For more straightforward videos, an editor can act a lot like a producer, collaborating with other contributors like the voiceover artist and scriptwriter. They’re the art directors of your final video, using editing software to bring all of your video’s creative assets together into a polished piece. They’ll set the pace and tone of your video and maintain the vision and mission for the video every step of the way.

Tip: Check out video editors’ demo reels and portfolios to get a sense of their style.

Scriptwriters

A writer who specializes in content for video can help brainstorm concepts, collaborate with editors and producers, and ensure your video is on brand and on message.

Voice-over Artists

Choosing the voice of your video is very important, and is a great way to set the tone for your video. If your video leans heavily on narration, be sure you’re engaging the voice-over talent who can deliver the style and cadence you’re looking for.

Tips to keep in mind before launching production

Video Length

The length of your video will play a big part in both the scriptwriting and voiceover recording processes. There’s no magic number when it comes to ideal video length, and research varies. The key is not letting the video drag on too long, and not cutting it too short. An editor will be able to weigh in on pace and length, which can help speed up production.

Upwork video producer Harry Yu says “Many say between 30 and 90 seconds, but there are lots of top-performing videos that are multiple minutes long. The rule of thumb: Viewers have a short attention span. Keep your videos to the recommended time, but if you believe your content is compelling and entertaining enough to go longer, you should definitely do so.”

Sourcing Stock Clips Online

If you’re creating a short video on a budget or tight timeline, one excellent option is to purchase high-quality clips and b-roll footage from stock video resources online.

“There’s a huge variety of clips out there that are high quality and well produced,” says Yu. “Some even offer batches of videos with the same actors in them for more character continuity, consistency, and flow.”

These content-rich resources make it possible to produce a large number of short videos relatively easily. Check out sites like Videoblocks, Dissolve, Shutterstock, or Adobe Stock.
