How to Make a Thank You Video: An Example

Matt Stauffer

On his blog last week Brian Barela featured an excellent Thank You video from Charity:Water. This is, of course, a lot better produced than you probably will create (for example, the second camera), but it’s still a great inspiration for making an excellent thank you video.

What would it take for you to start creating simple Thank You Videos?

  • A webcam, smart phone, or video camera
  • A YouTube account, Vimeo account, Facebook account, or video editor and email address
  • That’s it.

Some optional helpers to easily increase the quality of your videos:

  • A sheet hung on a wall
  • A couple of good aimable lamps
  • A tripod
  • An external microphone
  • Video editing software
  • Licensed music

Do you have any other tips on making quick, easy thank you videos?
