How to Make $50 with Howcast.
I found this particular video very helpful last night around 3am. Howcast is an instructional website created by filmmakers. Howcast provides the script, voice over, and audio for a simple how to video. You provide the visual content. This opens the door to some very funny videos. They are willing to pay $50 for the first video and will split the ad revenue 50/50 if your video gets over 40,000 hits.
How the Program Works
- Pick a title and download its script and voice over, animated graphics, and music tracks.
- Get creative. Shoot and edit your video.*
- Upload your video. Work with Howcast producers to fine-tune it until your final cut is ready for upload.
- Watch it go live to viewers across the web and beyond.
- Repeat. Get new assignments and make more as often as you like.
*Requirements: 3-chip Mini DV or HD camera and video editing software that can process .MOV files. (For example: Final Cut Pro, Final Cut Pro Express, Avid, Premiere, and Vegas. Pinnacle and iMovie will not process the Howcast graphics. Please contact us if you are unsure about your program.)
