Using animated explainer videos to deliver results

Whether your animation needs to explain a product, promote your culture and values, or grab attention on social, our team will design and deliver an animation that stands out and engages people.

Or, you could use animated infographics to increase engagement and enquiries by simplifying a complex subject, piece of research or data.

Whatever type of animation you need – explainer, infographic, 3D computer animation or motion graphics – we’ll make sure it gets to the heart of what you and your audience want. Because that’s the kind of video production company we are.

Animated explainer videos… explained

Animated explainer videos are a type of video production, but the name can mean slightly different things depending on who you ask. For us, typically, it’s an animation that explains a product or service with the intent of getting attention, driving curiosity and increasing desire for it.

They’re normally 90 seconds and 200 words, but they can be shorter. At the end, they usually ask the audience to take an action.

They’re not a substitute for other content though; explainer videos complement what you already have. They add two extra dimensions to your existing content: sound and motion, making your content richer and more engaging.

And because they’re 90 seconds or less, they don’t – and shouldn’t try to – explain things to the nth degree. A rookie error is to cram more than 200 words into 90 seconds. But bombarding the audience with lots of information makes it more likely they’ll feel overwhelmed, confused and disengage.

Neither do animated explainer videos have to be entirely animated. They can be part animated, part film. It depends on what you’re trying to achieve and which medium is most suitable for that goal. But we’ll figure this out with you at the briefing stage.
