How Do I Make My Own Virtual Video Spokesperson?


You've probably seen a variety of companies that offer video spokespersons who can walk on your website and say exactly what you want them to. If you're a do-it-yourself kind of person, you might be wondering how you can create a video spokesperson yourself.


If you want to create a very high quality video spokesperson yourself, be prepared to invest around $10,000 in adequate equipment. You'll need a professional camcorder with an XLR connection (XLR is required for quality microphone input). The microphone built into your camcorder won't provide clean and clear audio. You'll also need a quality wireless microphone to ensure there is no noise, static, or hum in your audio. You'll need specialized studio lights to illuminate the front of the spokesperson and also to cast light behind the spokesperson. You'll also need an evenly lit greenscreen that is wrinkle-free and a frame to hold the green screen (up to $500 or more).


You'll also need an experienced makeup artist to ensure your spokesperson looks professional on camera. Last but not least, you'll need software to remove the background of the video and experience with flash in order to customize the flash video so that it can smoothly play on a website, and a have a clean crisp transparent background behind the spokesperson. Software to process this conversion costs a few thousand dollars, and you'll also need to learn the ins and outs of the software in order to achieve the results you require.


Software will be required for processing the video, creating the transparent effect, and then converting the video into flash. YOu'll also need to custom-program the player buttons to make start, pause, and adjust volume of the video. Such software costs several thousand dollars, and will require months of training to build the skills required to create top-notch results.


To make a long story short, you'll need to spend $10,000 minimum to get a good quality set-up for your spokesperson, and you'll also need to find a spokesperson who looks great on camera and can speak professionally. You can probably cut corners and find a way to get everything you need for $3000 to $4000, but you'll probably compromise on video or audio quality, or use inferior software to produce the video.

As you can see, you're unlikely to save money if you decide to create your own spokesperson.
