When I write a script for a motion graphics video, I run through it a couple of times to make sure the language sounds right and the length is okay. It’s difficult to tell how something will sound when it’s written down, so a couple of tests are very helpful.
To time the script, I use an app. Sometimes I use my iPhone. But today I found out, by accident, that I can use Google.
Just Google ‘Timer’ and you’ll get an in-browser timer and stopwatch.
There are two buttons, which are all you need – Reset and Start. The timer goes up to 99 hours 59 minutes and 50 seconds.
