This course will show you how to make your first SVG image, that you can use in your whiteboard animation software (videoscribe, Doodle, Explaindio, etc) in 5 minutes.
You will have then taken your very first step.
From that 1st image, you will be introduced to new tools, that will allow you to generate different affects.
By the end of the course (12 videos), you will be able to assemble and repurpose complex scenes confidently and quickly.
My name is Dr David Kyte and I have been making whiteboard videos for 10 years. I use the techniques shared in this course with every whiteboard video I make.
I am sharing these skills, as they are simple, easy to learn, and gives you the freedom to tweak your current image library, making the PERFECT image for your next video shot.

Who this course is for:
- Anyone that makes whiteboard videos
The most powerful tool in marketing is Story Telling, Curiosity and Emotions.
Dave discovered this powerful combination a decade ago, creating his first whiteboard animation in Feb 2012.
Even though this first video was shockingly bad, it resonated with the client and sold for £300. His second video sold for £500, and 3rd for £700 - Dave knew he was onto something.
Historically, Dave is physicist - which means he HAS to know how things work, be it an MRI scanner (of which 350 animal scanners has his designs in around the world), to training membership sites and marketing.
Dave is fascinated by human phsycology - why do people do what they do. He is a life long learner and has invested heavily in his education.
Last summer, Dave started his 21st business - 6 are still running. He has bought, sold, swapped, given away, and closed businesses. The common thread amongst all of them ... they all need clients.
So Dave focusses on the marketing.
