How do we create Explainer Videos?
We start every project with a detailed creative workshop: Here we analyse the topic as well as the target group and explain all important questions.
We then create characters that make it easier for us to put ourselves in the shoes of the end user and really understand their needs. For this we develop a persona, i.e. a fictional depiction of the ideal customer, in order to adapt the communication strategy to the respective target group.
Now our creative minds start the hard work. We create a selection of solutions, as well as styles with which we could explain the topic.
You decide which of these suggestions will be implemented. Copywriters and designers create a storyboard – and then we wait for your feedback. We create a prototype at an early stage so that we can make changes if necessary.
Your feedback is our top priority throughout the process, so that the final product fully meets your needs and those of your target group.
Once all parties are satisfied, the explainer video is animated, soundtracked and given a final touch – and voilà it’s done! In the end, you will have a unique product of the highest quality that reflects both the customer and the company profile.
Make complex subjects easy to understand.
People are constantly bombarded with information and advertising. This has of course also drastically reduced the concentration span. In fact, it has shrunk by almost a quarter in just 15 years, from 2000 to 2015.
To get the desired attention from the audience, explainer videos have been developed. Because through videos, brands can convey the same information to their audience, only much more compact and consumer-friendly.
But creating an explainer video is not an easy task. Similar to an investor pitch deck, you need to focus on a single message and the specific customer profile.
And to be honest, not to mention the creation of an explainer video is a project in itself. You need one or more ideas, a script, characters, storyboards, prototypes, animations, voiceovers, subtitles and unique background music.
Therefore, working with the right partner can be crucial when it comes to using resources and budget wisely.
Whether digital (computer animation), scribble (drawn) or individually adapted: The mixture of live-action film and animation offers a wealth of possibilities.
And we can help you with it!
