About us - Demo Duck

Who we are

What we do is make video for business, but who we are is a small team of curious people. Curious about your business, what makes you special, what you’re experts in. We want to know the what, the why, the how–pick your brain and turn the findings into a video.

We’ve spent the past seven years learning about businesses small and large, new and old, local and abroad. Our passion is to take what we learn from you and turn that into video content that can accomplish anything.

Back in 2011, Andrew Follett started whipping up screencasts and demo videos–hence the ‘demo’ in Demo Duck. The ‘duck’ part we made up.

Then, like a dead baseball player out of a cornfield, came the explainer video and our first big break. We built it, and they came.

As the projects rolled in, we started collaborating with artists, designers, animators and filmmakers from all over the world. Sure explainers were our original bread and butter, but we got hungry for more: an advert, a testimonial, a song.

Our values


We’re not mind readers and neither are you. Let’s be real with each other.


We take credit for the good, the bad, and the ugly.

Bold thinking

Brainstorming without fear or a ‘safe option’ since 2011.


We pounce on new challenges like cats on lasers.

Humble confidence

We prefer to steer the ship, not strut around the poop deck.

Flexible & scrappy

We’re so flexible and scrappy we combined these last two values together.
