Explainimations

Animate your story

I create handcrafted video explainers and animated videos that will explain your brand and product or tell your story in a fun, quirky and appealing way. I don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all. I want to get to know you and your story before I start drawing so we can change the world together. Everyone has a story worth telling!

Get to know you

I believe that by working together we can create the most exciting result. Therefore when I start a new project I’d first like to get to know you. I also believe I should be your student to enable me to tell your story as close to who you are and directed to the right group of listeners. Let’s talk over coffee or Skype.

Script

The foundation of a great video is a creative and engaging story. We’ll write a script that effectively communicates your message in an entertaining way while clearly translating your identity.

Storyboard

Once we’re all happy with the script, I develop a storyboard that will help you understand the concept of the video. If you have any preferences for colours, styles of illustrations, now is the time to let me know.

Background Music

A great animation is accompanied by great music. I’ll find the perfect royalty free music to make your info-graphic shine! Or use your own music.

Voice-Over

To make the video compelling to your audience, I’ll source a voice-over artist and record in a professional studio.

Animation

This is where the magic happens. All the elements come to together to bring your video to life.

Launch!

Your video is ready to go! I render your video in HD and deliver it in MP4 format.

Why do you need an explainer video?

Attention, attention!

The average attention span of internet users is about 6,25 seconds. Shorter than a goldfish’s memory! With an animated video you’ll grab your audiences attention the first crucial seconds they visit your website to keep them focused on you!

Spotlights on you!

With an animated (explainer) video you highlight the awesomeness of your product, service, brand or other message you’re trying to bring across. Without having to read pages of text, your audience will understand what you’re all about within seconds.

And the winner is...

Needless to say that high quality animated videos appeal to your visitors and therefore also to search engines like Google and Bing. This gives you better rankings and therefore generates more traffic to your website!

General questions

Given the short attention span we have these days, I try to keep our videos as short and as possible (30-120 seconds) while still getting the message across in a fun and entertaining way. This often means we can’t tackle all of the information you want to bring across, but that’s fine. As the video gives your audience enough information to get them interested in finding out more.

Most of the videos I make are between 45 and 65 seconds.

Pop me an email and send me all your questions. I will try to answer all of them as soon as I can. Say hello or send your email to bee@bee-original.com
