Visual Effects on an Indie Budget... Hollywood effects for your next film

Me, David Smith

Why You Need Visual Effects in your Next Video

Visual effects are not just explosions and animated characters. There is likely no Hollywood movie, even dramas that don't have some type of effects.

Production Value- Make your audience believe you must have had a huge budget

The best effects are the ones the audience never notices- equipment removal, set extensions, sign replacement.  These are all effects that are very achievable for an independent film maker. These will bring your film to the next level of quality.


Post Processing is a Must

There is no such thing as a movie or film with no visual effects, Not in our modern day any way. 

Even YouTube videos have some stunning effects.  I am not talking just about effects you know you see.


Some of the best visual effects are invisible to the audience.  These include things like removing rigging from the shot.  Or extending the set far beyond what would otherwise be possible.  Have to film in your back yard? Turn it into a mountainous jungle.


You can make the film you want, you can show your audience the world you have in your head.  Many visual effects are no longer locked into only Blockbuster Movies from big studios.


Between D.I.Y. and high quality freelancers you can have a $$$ looking film for $.

The best kinds of testimonials are ones that tell a small story and include specific details. This is much more powerful than a generic testimonial that simply say "I love this product!" or something similarly vague.

Here Comes Another Text Section

As mentioned before, these text sections are multi-purpose. At this point on the page, we've highlighted the main features, introduced the product and presented some social proof. Many readers will still need a lot more convincing before they are ready to buy.


A text section like this is great for describing your product in detail and telling a story about the benefits it will bring to a customer. It is also a good idea to address potential objections that are on your reader's mind (e.g. "will this really work for me?") in text sections like this.

Product Overview Section

The purpose of this section is to provide an overview of your product. This could be an outline of chapters in your ebook, lessons in your course, modules in your coaching program etc. The reader should come away from this with a very clear idea of what they will get for their money.

  1. 1
    Describe the 1st chapter, module or part of your product here. Try to keep the description concise but interesting. It's better to say something interesting in few words than to try and describe every aspect of something at the risk of boring your reader.
  2. 2
    Think of "teaser" when writing these descriptions. A good description gives a hint about your product. It makes the reader curious, but it leaves a gap - a little mystery - instead of revealing everything.
  3. 3
    You can add as many chapters as you need. Just duplicate the entire columns row to add new chapters/modules and adjust the text accordingly. The list shouldn't feel endlessly long, but don't shy away from presenting a dozen chapters.

MARC JACOBS  //  Author

In this section, introduce the author, creator, teacher or face of the brand. Help your audience connect with you on a more personal level and show them that there's a person behind it. It feels better to buy from a person than from a faceless, corporate brand.


You don't need to tell your life story. Just explain what qualifies you and why you care and add a personal detail or two.

The best kinds of testimonials are...

You almost can't have too many testimonials. However, no one wants to read through one endless list of them. That's why it's a good idea to spread testimonials through multiple sections on the page. That way, your copy and the social proof from testimonials take turns in convincing your reader.
