Turn your instructable into an animated video Answered

Hello Community,

I have been kicking around the idea of making an Instructable about how to turn an Instructable into an animated video/presentation. It made me start to wonder how many people would be interested in doing this. If there is considerable demand, then I would be more than happy to move forward.

I have been making animated videos for almost a year now. It is something that I REALLY enjoy doing so I am looking for more opportunities to offer my services to others and possibly make a little money on the side. My grandmother always told us that the key to a career is finding something that you love to do and then figuring out how to make money doing it. I found something that I love to do so now I am curious about whether there were others on this site that would be interested in having this service done for them.

I am also looking for 1 outstanding Instructable that I can turn into a animated video/presentation for FREE. This will give me an opportunity to show the community what I can do. If you have an Instructable of your own that you would like to submit or have come across a great one that you want to recommend, please let me know.

Here is an example of my work for anyone that may be interested. All feedback is welcome. Thanks for taking the time to read this!

Hi Kiteman, I hadn't heard of it but I looked it up after I read your comment. I'll repost it because I love what I found:

The Zeroth Law

is a fairly regular kind of thread that appears here. It starts should I
make an Instructable about insert
topic here?

You know what? The answer is yes.
Even if nobody else on the site is even vaguely interested in insert topic here, it is probable
that somebody with
access to the internet,somewhere in
the world, will eventually develop an interest in insert topic here and resort to Google. Since this site is
googlable (is that a word?), they can end up here, grateful to you and potentially
a new and useful member of the site.

So, unless it breaks the guidelines for what is suitable here (basically, Please remember that this is a family site),
and you're not just re-inventing the wheel, then the answer toshould I? is always yes."

If an Instructable exactly like yours has not already been
posted, then you shall post your Instructable.”

Sorry about the formating on that. Something was thrown off during the copy and paste.
