Welcome to this insanely practical course on Screenflow.

This is not a course like any other you can find online. It's not about the technical aspects of Screenflow, even though it teaches them to you fully and clearly.

This course is actually a practical, down to earth, results oriented, project based, coaching platform. Go straight to what you need and instantly learn it using modern experiential learning techniques.

Because what we'll be doing here is exactly what you want to do outside this course.

We have 4 projects (that are actually real life scenarios):

  • speaking over a Keynote (or Powerpoint) presentation
  • demoing a software product
  • teaching on camera
  • recording a Skype interview

For each one of these 4 projects you learn:

- everything you need to know about the technical aspects of Screenflow so that you can put on video what's in your head

(the technical part)

- the theory behind the teaching:

- how to animate the screen and add special effects so students don't lose interest and watch your clips until the end

- how to structure your speech so students can remember it for months to come

- tips and tricks that expert teachers use to inspire people into action

- and other essential lessons with examples from my own experience as a trainer and public speaker

(the theory)

- after the technical aspects and the theory, you have an example of how it can be done

(the example)

- and finally, your turn; you will have a hands on project in which you will create a video based on real world needs, here you put in practice what you've been taught

(the project)

All your submissions will be reviewed and you will get personalized feedback.

Basically you'll have the creator of this course as your own personal coach, included in the course's price.

The course is synergistic.

Every time you arrive at your, let's say, homework, you have all the knowhow to do it, technical, theoretical and an example.

All the projects are useful in your real life.

Oh, and one more thing.

This course is created by you!

If you find something unclear, if you want additional information on a subject or if you have any other request related to the course, write to me. I'll create bonus videos based on your needs.

Here you won't get those boring lessons showing you actions menu by menu, instead, in this course you'll be putting into practice the skills you require to provide video content to your students.

According to Marketing Week, video results appeared in almost 70% of the top 100 search listing on Google in 2012.

And according to ragan dot com

More than 500 years' worth of YouTube videos are watched daily on Facebook.

And more than 700 YouTube videos are shared on Twitter every minute.

Video is easily shareable and searchable. Think of the last 5 things you've shared on social media, at least one of them was probably a video.

Use this course as a platform to launch yourself in the video business. Professional editors are paid around 250$/hr and cheap corporate video editing costs around 1000$/finished minute. Even freelancers that just started are paid with 500$/day.

Section 1: Introduction

Hello and welcome,

During this course I’ll be offering you videos and practical exercises that will teach you keynote in an experiential way. The entire content is based on case studies, trainings and my experience as a video editor and online trainer.

Before browsing the content, please help me with something; it will only take 3 minutes of your time. Below you can see the link to a survey that will help me improve the quality of future courses. If you haven’t answered it yet, please do so now:


Before we get started I’d like to show you how to get the most out of this course.

There are 4 main sections in the course:
- how to speak over a keynote presentation
- how to create a demo of a software product (or a course)
- how to teach on video
- how to record a Skype conversation

Check the video for details.

Section 2: Teach with Keynote (technical prerequisites)

In this video, I'll introduce you to ScreenFlow and walk you through getting the program setup and ready to record.


In this video, I'll show you how to configure a recording and make a recording. The video was recorded with QuickTime (the only way I could get a screen recording when I configure the Screenflow recording).


In this video, I'll show you the basic layout of the Editing Window.


In this video, I'll show you the Canvas area of the Editing Window.


In this video, I'll show you the Timeline area of the Editing Window.


In this video, I'll talk about splitting and trimming clips.


In this video, I talk about ripple delete.


In this video, I'll cover exporting and publishing videos with ScreenFlow.

Section 3: Teach with Keynote (practical stuff)

In this video I’ll show you just how easy it is to deliver a Keynote or Powerpoint presentation, and, at the end, you’ll get a great tip on how to maintain the audience’s attention.


If you want to know:
- How your own personality sabotages your productivity and the achievement of your goals
- The psychology of success: what is that specific trait that makes you different from successful people
- Techniques through which you can align your 'mood' to work with your goals, in order to quickly achieve them
- How to act better, faster and smarter when you need to
- Techniques to motivate each type of personality

(based on the myers briggs personality test)

Welcome to the practical section of this course.

Today .. we play!

As you’ve seen in the previous video, creating a video using Keynote and Screenflow is easy and it can be done in no time.
So now, it’s your turn.

First, create a Keynote (or Powerpoint) presentation on your favorite subject. It can be an informational presentation but you can also educate your audience, or maybe entertain them.
Second, record yourself while playing that presentation. Edit it, and export it.
And last, publish it on a site (I’d suggest using Youtube) and post the link in the comments section.

I’ll personally review your presentation and tell you what you need to do to improve it.

Section 4: Demo a product (technical prerequisites)

In this video, I'll talk about moving and adjusting clips.


I'll talk about using the Media Library in ScreenFlow.


In this video, I'll talk about using Video Properties and Actions in ScreenFlow.


In this video, I'll talk about using Audio Properties and Actions in ScreenFlow.


In this video, I'll talk about using Screen Recording Properties and Actions.


In this video, I'll cover using Callouts in ScreenFlow.


In this video, I'll cover using Annotations in ScreenFlow.


In this video, I'll cover adding Text in ScreenFlow.


In this video, I'll talk about detaching audio.


In this video, I'll talk about freezing frames.

Section 5: Demo a product using screen recording (practical stuff)

Creating a high quality, prize winning demo is a hard thing to do.

But creating a quality demo, isn’t.

So don’t be a perfectionist. Strive to get 80% of the perfection you’re dreaming of and leave the rest for people that dedicate weeks or even months to a single demo and maybe never finish it.

Check the video to find out how to record a software demo.

First, I want to congratulate you! You’re progressing marvelously in this course.
Some students go through it at a fast pace hoping to get some hidden techniques.
Others join and never get past the first few videos.

You are one of the few that takes the videos one by one and learns everything you can.
Here’s the second project we’ll be working on: creating a demo of a software product using Screenflow.

You can demo a product you’re using, an online course or even Screenflow’s features.

After you finish the demo, edit it and publish it on Youtube (or another site) and post the link in the comments section.

I’ll personally review your demo and give you some advice on how to improve it.


Create a scrolling text effect, Star Wars style!

Section 6: Reveal yourself (technical prerequisites)

In this video, I'll talk about grouping and unlocking clips.


In this video I'll talk about nested clips.


In this video, I'll talk about using markers.


In this video, I'll cover Closed Captioning videos with ScreenFlow.


In this video, I'll cover saving a frame as an image with ScreenFlow.


Bonus video on how to digitally clean your white screen.

Section 7: Reveal yourself: use a video cam! (practical stuff)

Revealing yourself on video has numerous advantages.

The most important one being that you create a connection with the audience, especially when they can see your eyes.

It’s not that hard to appear on video, but delivering a great experience can be quite a challenge.


A basic framework for your video trainings!


So you’ve got your video on one hand and your audio on the other and you’re so happy with them. But when you put them together you realize you’ve turned your audio on after you started recording the video and they are not in sync.


Here's a video from my Time Management course. In it, you will find out how to:

- Get an hour of free time every day, no matter how busy your schedule is

- Double your productivity: learn how to work efficiently, even when you're constantly interrupted

- Balance your professional and personal life to get rid, once and for all, of the stress and the tasks that overwhelm you

Hello again,

Today we have one hell of a project.
Because it’s time to put yourself in front of the camera.
Record a video of yourself teaching something, anything really and post the link in the comments section.

After you finish the editing, publish the video on Youtube and post the link in the comments section.

I’ll personally review your video and give you some advice on how to improve it.

Section 8: Record a Skype interview

If you want to add a flavor to your course or membership site one of the easiest ways to do that is to record a Skype interview.


Doing an interview is not difficult, actually, it’s quite fun.

First of all, contact the person you’d like to interview telling them about what they will get from the interview.

One of their benefits is..


How to configure Skype and ScreenFlow for recording and editing a conversation.


Skype interview: Bogdan Vaida and Alexa Fischer in an interview about communicating on video, using prompters, introvert vs extrovert trainers, converting trainings into books, speaking on camera, how to train your english accent and more.


All about how I edited the Skype interview between me and Alexa. Learn some tips and tricks and do it yourself!


Woow, we’re almost over.

I love to see you here. You’re one of the winners, one of the few people that take their interests seriously.

And now it’s time for this week’s project.

Find a person to interview for one of your projects and record a Skype call between you and him.
If you don’t want to do interviews then record a conversation between you and one of your friends while you tell him a joke.

After you finish the editing, publish the video and post the link in the comments section.

I’ll review your video and give you some advice on how to improve it.


Look your best when interviewed by video over the internet.

BONUS: My interview with the Screenflow team
Section 9: Screenflow 5 features

With Action Templates you can save your favorite actions.


Now you can record your iOS screen (including its camera).


Free up your time by exporting all your projects while you sleep!


Color code your clips to mark them as TOEDIT, DONE or LATER.


Free up your space by removing your unused media.


Increase your editing speed with this neat little trick.


Reverse your actions with snapback actions.


Show finger presses, swipes and drags on your recorded iOS device screen (or in any video for that matter).

Section 10: NEW: Screenflow 6 features

New icons in the timeline and canvas for greater control. You can mute video or audio on a track independently, use a quick-access pop-up to set project dimensions, and mute audio monitors with a new headphone button.


Set ScreenFlow to create a rolling recording buffer – to enable the ability to record for hours without taking up all available hard drive space. You can stop the recording at any time and ScreenFlow will only keep the last x number of minutes of recorded footage that was defined upon setup. Helpful for reporting intermittent computer or application issues and recording gaming sessions (for feedback or just waiting for that incredible play you'll make that will impress your friends).

Record any part of the screen. Capture just a single application window, define a region, or record the entire desktop.  Now you can capture only the content that is relevant, saving valuable editing time.


ScreenFlow now recognizes and records multiple audio channel inputs from USB mixers.  Record up to 16 discreet audio channels from a single USB input, and mix and adjust them separately in ScreenFlow’s inspector.


Create GIFs right from your ScreenFlow projects. Enables export of short animations for the web, memes, tutorials or social sharing.  Helps you create video for the web that's universally supported by most browsers.  Quick and easy for simple content.


Swap clips in the timeline without changing the overall duration of a segment, or resetting in- and out-points on the new clip. Ideal when you rebrand video intros and outros or when you shoot a second take of a clip.


Choose from three new motion-animated effects – Spring, Gravity, Pulse.  You can click to apply these effects to your clips and create professional-looking animations without the hassle of selecting key frames or writing custom code.

Section 11: BONUS: Video Creation Section - Alexa Fischer 1000 Watt Presence

Alexa Fischer helps people speak with confidence + calm just about anywhere - at board meetings, to an auditorium, on video, or even at a cocktail party full of strangers. She learned how to do this at The Yale School of Drama and on countless television shows; these days she teach CEOs, private clients, online students, and huge companies how to connect - with each other and with their own greatness.


Video is everywhere. If you have never considered yourself as someone who would end up in front of a camera, then think again. The use of video is growing rapidly and the sooner you can embrace it, the better. After all, people love to see the individuals behind the brand. If you want to build a tribe of fans or simply connect with your team virtually, then it's time to get comfortable on camera. It's not as scary as it seems.


Here is a quick snapshot of my story. When I started my company in 2011, I knew video would play an impart part of my business. What began as a single course and weekly video blog evolved into a comprehensive online video content strategy. It has been a joy and pleasure sharing my work with individuals from around the world.


Take a moment and consider all the types of video you use right now. Video conferencing, Google hangouts, Skype, video blogs, YouTube, in addition to all the streamed video content for entertainment and gaming. It's simply everywhere. While you may not envision yourself appearing on camera in the immediate future, the key is start practicing now in “low-stakes” situations. Where do you see yourself leveraging video in your life?


Your iPhone or iPad can be your one stop production studio. With a few simple tools, you can create professional quality videos using devices you likely already own. Here is a quick guide to creating incredible videos on your own.


Join me as I do a quick demonstration about how I use my iPad mini to create videos on the go. With a few simple devices, you can become a video production pro. Watch and see just how easy it really is.


Time to get your creative juices flowing. On the attached worksheet there are plenty of ideas of videos you can see all over the web. It's a god idea to start your own research as well. What types of videos do you think will work for your business?

Section 12: OUTRO

Congratulations, you’ve finished the course.

This course was a direct request from people on my mailing list wanting to know how I created the videos from my other courses. The course was created using a unique methodology. Instead of teaching you stuff, you get the technical and theoretical requirements for a project and you do the project yourself.

In this way, the AHA moment comes from you and only you.

Please complete the following survey: http://screenflow.onlinepersonalitytests.org/survey2.html

It will help me improve this course by providing materials suited to your needs.

I’d also love to get success stories with videos you’ve created using Screenflow.
I hope you’ve learned a lot in the course and it’s time to get working! :)
