How to video script - make this funny! We are planning to launch a service company which provides local services like lawn mowing, plumbing, electrical etc in Denver market. We have worked on an explainer video which explains what we do. Unfortunately, I am not that creative and so the script isn't that funny/catchy. There is no point of making a video with this crappy script because no-one would watch it. I want some talented people to look into this script and see how to make it funny (and proof-read it as well). Please note - this script is for an how-to video which someone would be explaining, and not a write up on website. So you can use your imagination on what else can fit in here. It's completely fine if you want to rip apart the script and put it together in your own terms. The end goal is that the content is funny/catchy as well as explains what we do to our audience in a humorous way. You can look at this video which I really liked. I want to turn this script into a video like this. [url removed, login to view] And please keep the word count within 350 - so it can fit into a 2 minute video. 3 Catch Phrases, Copywriting, Creative Writing, Proofreading Mar 25, 2017 Today2d 5h $50
