short script for an animation about Spark People

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

I'm looking for suggestions!
I want to make a fun 'explainer' video for spark people in my free time (something to share with ya'll)
It'll be about 45 seconds long (or less, depending on edits to the script)

Please take a read and send any suggestions you may have!

Title: How I got the Spark

Script (Voice over):

About a year ago, I was sitting at home and dreaming about getting FIT.

How would my hips look? Would my breasts shrink? Could I go on my dream hiking trip in New Zealand (and look cute, too?) Maybe even... fit into that little white dress?

I posted my musings on FaceBook – and my friend asked:

Have you got the Spark?

Spark? What’s that?

So she told me about SparkPeople.com, a place for people of all ages and sizes to come together and Learn how to get fit, Track their successes (and failures) and to get Support form the community.


I logged on and got started right away.

I’ve written countless blogs, tracked my calories eaten and burned (although I’m hardly perfect!), and made a ton of friends along the way.

Sure, I’ve got a ways to go before I make that “Goal”, but I’m no longer sitting on the sidelines.

I’ve got my Spark, how about you?

    I like it! I visualized a beautiful green NZ shot when you mentioned your dream hike

    Thanks Ash! I had tracked my calories before on fitday.com, but it was boring- even the interface was bland.

    Greg- just me. I make this kind of stuff for a living, and wanted to do something fun at home for something I like. a portfolio piece, I think.

    Cool...may I ask why you are doing this? Is this something you are doing on your own? Or are you going to market it? (would help to know why...but it sounds cooler than cool)

    I had already started tracking and trying to do something about my out of control weight and was down about 10 pounds. I was googling the calorie contents of various foods and spark kept coming up. I joined and made my sister do so too. Now, more than a year later, I'm still here and (while I'm hardly perfect) I've got a good idea of what I'm supposed to be doing. The best thing about the spark is the people that keep me motivated and accountable. I feel like I let you all down when I slack off for a few days!
