What Is Animated Video Production?

Animated video production involves the creation of computer-generated 2D or 3D designs, characters, and motion graphics that give the illusion of moving images in video format. This process entails developing individual static images that differ slightly from one another and sequencing them together to create the appearance of movement.

Animated videos are widely popular due to the limitless possibilities offered by animation. The only restriction is one’s imagination. Moreover, animated video production is a cost-effective way to convey your message through video. Embarking on animated video production might seem daunting if you’re new to it. However, fret not! When you have the right animated video production company by your side, their experienced experts in various animation types can guide you in the right direction for all your video animation needs.

Frequently asked questions

How can Animated Videos help engaging with viewers?

Animated video production offers a more entertaining and imaginative alternative to traditional video production. Ultimately, you want videos that engage, have an impact, and remain memorable to your audience. While traditional video production can meet these requirements, it has certain limitations, such as finding suitable locations, managing lighting, and dealing with color constraints. With animated video production, every detail of the video can be customized to fit your audience and brand personality, providing greater flexibility in what you can display on screen.

  • To save time, ask for a mood board of the different elements of your video. You will see how all the pieces of your video will look before animating them.
  • Does your video have a clear objective and a clear message?
  • Make sure your overall script has been edited and fits within the required time.
  • Keep the video relevant to your target audience.
  • Can your video be edited into a 30 second and 60 second message?
  • Allow for breathing space between sections.
  • Try not to force too much info into your video.
  • Make sure you have at least two voice-over options to choose from.
  • Use your brand’s tone within your video.
  • Try to get your brand’s colours into the video where possible.
  • Make sure there is a clear Call To Action.

Yes! In fact when your audience becomes more engaged with a brand through animated video content, they are more likely to invest in that brand. Animated videos provide a simplified version of what a brand offers and can help convert cold audiences into leads by enabling them to learn more about your company or brand through your website. This, in turn, drives more traffic and conversions to your website.

‘By 2022, online videos will make up more than Cisco of all consumer internet traffic.’. It is important to realise the average user spends 88% more time on a website with video. This means your video will be able to educate your website’s visitors in detail on how your product or service works and whether it’s right for them.

Your animated explainer video will make you stand out from your competitors by sharing your business’ offering and service in a way that’s easier to understand.

Animated explainer videos are invaluable for simplifying complex ideas and making your message more memorable. They provide a clear explanation of your company’s product or service in a manner that is understandable and accessible to the general public. Creating an animated explainer video allows for striking visual effects that enhance the portrayal of your message. Additionally, animated explainer videos offer more creative possibilities and are easier to update if you need to make future adjustments.

  • Whiteboard Animation: involves showing the viewer still images being drawn on a whiteboard. It is particularly effective for explainer videos as it visually portrays complex ideas.
  • Infographic Animation: an excellent option for visualising and giving life to information, such as charts, graphs, texts, and illustrations. Infographic animations retain the simplified and understandable nature of traditional infographics while adding dynamic elements through animation to enhance viewer retention.
  • Character Animation: specialised area where animators bring characters to life, imbuing them with thoughts, emotions, and personalities. Animated characters can represent any type of person, adding a human touch to businesses and preventing videos from feeling overly corporate.
  • 2D Animation: it features a “flat” style. It involves using pre-existing images created with computer software, and then animated and displayed on the screen.
  • 3D Animation: it utilises three-dimensional space to bring objects to life on the screen. This animation style creates depth and realism, making objects appear more lifelike and immersive.
  • Stop Motion: technically a form of 3D animation, stop motion involves capturing individual frames of physical objects or puppets in different positions and then sequencing them together to create movement. This technique offers a tactile and tangible feel, as real objects are manipulated to bring them to life. Stop motion animation can be visually captivating and is often used for artistic and storytelling purposes.

Creating long form text on your website on how your product or service works can be time consuming for your end reader. Moreover, explainer videos share the processes of your business in a matter of seconds. Here your website visitors will fully understand specifically how your service or product will meet their needs.

Make sure you:

  • Place your video on top of your website’s homepage.
  • Place your video on key landing pages for your new products and/or services.
  • Display on big screens at your trade shows and events.
  • Use as YouTube adverts.
  • Edit videos into bite-sized clips for your social media.
  • Use on your LinkedIn page and share with your connections.
  • Use as part of your sales presentations.
  • Include your video in your email and direct marketing campaigns.

We have been using Impress for many years now for patient testimonial videos for our dental practices and I can highly recommend Gurmit and Harry! I think the service has been wonderful, they take over the whole process and arrange everything so I haven’t had to get involved in it which has been great. Gurmit is always very polite and easy to work with and we will be carrying on working with them in the future. Totally recommend!

Producing a Creative Explainer Video

Your video will give you enough time to emphasise your offering, such as how your product or service works, the processes, people and the technology involved. In fact, the most common explainer video is usually a 2D cartoon style with moving elements. You will find that the more complex you want your animation or cartoon to be the bigger the budget you’ll need.

The team at Impress

The team at Impress has frequently worked on a number of animated videos across a number of business sectors. We handle all the creative elements in-house, for instance scripting and story-boarding to editing and final delivery of the video.
