What are Animated Explainer Videos?

Explainer videos are short online marketing videos which your company can use to communicate information about your brand, or a product or service you offer, in a succinct and memorable way. Animated explainer videos are the most popular type of explainer video because they can allow for more creativity and imagination.

The Benefits

Information in a Digestible Format

Animated explainer videos are the perfect way for your target audience to learn about your business in a highly visual and fun way. People don’t want to spend time reading through tons of text on a website. Video is a much more effective way to digest marketing messages.

Visualise Complex Ideas

If you are looking to break down an abstract idea or complex process, live action might be an unrealistic option. With animation, anything is possible. If we can think it, we can animate it. Whether its presenting mounds of data in a more engaging way or visualising an intangible product like software, animated explainer videos make the complicated simple.

Enhance Brand Identity

Custom animations are a great way to express your brand’s personality. We can work with and elevate assets you already have, or design signature characters and graphics for you from scratch that can grow with your brand in the future. This strengthens brand identity.

Improve Engagement

Animated explainer videos are great at driving conversions, whether it’s making a purchase or just dropping you a line. On social media, animated explainer videos are easily sharable and can drive traffic to your website. On your website landing page, these videos can keep people on your web pages for longer, which is great for your SEO and can boost your website in Google’s search rankings.

Initial Meeting

We’ll have a chat about your brief to understand exactly what you’re looking for in terms of target audience, illustration style, video length and distribution platforms.

Our team will then have a creative brainstorming session and present our ideas back to you.

We have a talented in-house team of copywriters who excel at turning even the most complex processes into engaging stories.

Creating storyboard for animated explainer video

Storyboards & Style frames

This is where we map out the signed-off script scene by scene with a creative storyboard to help you visualise how your animated explainer video will flow.

We’ll also give you a few fully designed style frames to make sure you’re happy with the look and feel of the animation.
