So, you want to make a video – amazing!
But if you’ve tried it before, you probably know it can be a lengthy and tedious process. 😨
Or rather, it used to be.
Today, AI makes it possible for anyone to create a professional-looking video from their browser without any equipment or experience in video editing.
Best way to start? Templates!
What makes the templates in this article *very* special are our AI avatars - human-like presenters that you can include in your video. You simply select one, write the words you want them to speak (70+ languages supported), and add them to a specific slide.
All our video templates have been created for a specific use case, so all you need to do is customize the content and visuals, and your video is ready to go. Videos made with Synthesia can be downloaded in MP4 format, embedded into different platforms, or shared via link.
And yes, of course you can upload your own assets such as fonts, backgrounds, videos, etc.
Ready to start creating?
It’s as easy as creating a slide deck, really, but the results are waaay cooler.
(If you prefer to create your slides first and create your video after that, you can find downloadable PowerPoint and Keynote templates at the end of this post.)
1. Board Meeting Presentation Template

For an extra level of interactivity, don’t forget to add an AI avatar of your choice.
2. Cybersecurity Template
Cybersecurity is a super important topic these days, but far too often, people just don’t follow the instructions and guidelines.
And they’re not to blame.
Talking about cybersecurity can quickly become too technical or simply boring. 🥱
And that’s why we’ve created this cybersecurity video template.
3. Sales Deck Template

Best way to remember new information? Practice!
It improves skills significantly, but only when presented the right way.
This is one of our most popular video templates and was created together with our learning strategists.
It includes all the key moments viewers need to start practicing a new skill: It begins with a title slide, gives clarification, takes you through the process, and has a recap slide at the end.
You can edit the slides as you wish, select a human presenter to guide viewers through the process, and simply export, embed, or share the link to your video.
5. Sharing a Case Study
Case studies are a great way to build trust and credibility and help people better understand a subject.
Usually, they sit on blog sites, waiting for people to come and read them.
That’s great, but how about presenting them in a more engaging format, like video, for example? 📹
Using this as a starting point, you can easily make a case study video. It contains all the key elements of a comprehensive case study, including a catchy title, problems, solutions, charts, and results. You can easily change colors and fonts, and other assets and share your new case study video on multiple channels.
6. Team Update
It is vital to give regular team updates for the following reasons:
1️⃣ First, it helps everyone stay on the same page and know what is going on with the project.
2️⃣ Second, it keeps everyone informed about deadlines and milestones.
3️⃣ Third, it allows team members to ask questions and voice concerns.
4️⃣ It also boosts team morale and keeps everyone motivated.
To accomplish all these, your presentation should be well-structured and engaging enough to keep the team focused.
Also, don’t forget to edit text, colors, and music to make the presentation consistent with your brand. Pick a presenter, hit “Generate video,” and your presentation is good to go.
7. Orientation Video
Did you know that a great employee onboarding process can improve employee retention by 82%?
And as remote work becomes the new normal, it’s crucial to make this process as smooth as possible.
