How I use Animaker to create 1500+ kickass explainer videos a year!Damith Menaka is a freelancer based in Sri Lanka. He runs his own video production company that helps other businesses tell stories through videos. My passion towards graphic designing and animations started back when I was in high school. Even in the midst of a hectic school life, I used to refer to online tutorials and YouTube videos to learn how to make these wonderful animations.
Struggle to SuccessMy real struggles started when I left high school to start my university education. I had to work really hard in order to cover the university fees and even with a full-time job I struggled with that. There were few instances I had to even postpone giving certain exams due to the lack of funds. That’s when I realized freelancing is the only way forward. Initially I had some moderate success with certain freelance websites but my incredible enthusiasm and dedication helped me to overcome all the barriers and eventually discover some real success online.
I was able to get a lot of orders from people asking me to create explainer videos for their business. That’s when I learned that there is a massive demand for animated explainer videos and I just have to cater to the demand. Businesses around the world struggle to tell their story to customers. You can write a blog post for about 500-1000 words, but do you really think your customer will spend his time reading your entire article? I don’t think so.
1 minute of video = 1 million words.That’s where animated videos can come to your aid. You can tell your entire story in a simple 2-minute video. And your customers will love you for that.
