Calculating Wages

Applying for Unemployment Insurance requires a few actions on the claimant that they are not aware of (if they don’t read). So a video was created to combat this terrible miscommunication.

The steps had not even been clearly written out so this was new content altogether. After writing it out, a quick storyboard drafted the illustrations. I’m quite proud of the calendar. Being a visual person, that really helped me figure out how the timing of all this works. After creating the illustrations in Adobe Illustrator, I put them in a Premiere Pro timeline along with a few simple reveal animations created in After Effects. I walked into the studio/closet and recorded the narration and uploaded it to the Internet. Music credits belong to the free music library made available by YouTube.

Wrote, illustrated, voiced and edited a video to quickly show how to calculate an unemployment claimant’s last week of income during the first required certification.
