The Process

The best Explainer Video process to use

This is our explainer video process. It all begins with a conversation.

There is method to our madness. Each step needs to be signed off before we proceed. It is important that we are all 100% happy with what we have, before we move on. As much as we love the creative process, backtracking can be costly.

We discuss who you are, what you need and where your video will go as part of your marketing plan. We talk about what you like about animated videos, any styles that you are particularly keen on, what you want the video to be about and who you are making it for.

Once we are both happy and the technicalities (50% deposit and signing of the terms and conditions) are out of the way, we’ll agree a production schedule and we can begin.
