Create a quick video based on the same theme as TV shows such as Modern Marvels or How Its Made. Film yourself assembling something basic (such as a sandwich) and then overlay an audio track describing each step. Make sure to hit each step, of assembly, when voicing over the film. These TV shows are very descriptive of the creation process and so should your video. Feel free to throw in a fact clip, about your item, like they do before commercials in Modern Marvels.
