You may consider starting with a short animation that leads to a menu which
will allow the "viewer" to choose the facet of the software about which
he/she wants information. By adding interactivity, it gives the user /
viewer a feeling of control, and helps to avoid the aura of a
"high-pressured" sales pitch.

Subject: Mutlimedia demo script!
I've been tasked with preparing a script for a multimedia demo for the
marketing team. The demo should guide first-time users on a quick tour of
the software that we develop. My part is to prepare a scenario for the demo,
write the script and orchestrate the whole process. I searched the archives
rather hastily but couldn't find anything closely related. I'm not sure how
to start, or how to write an interesting script that's neither a
"high-pressured" sales pitch nor even a monotonous documentary comment. Can
anyone help me with the guidelines I should keep in mind to prepare the demo
scenario and text?
