Animated Explainer Video Services

Animated explainer videos are short, illustrated, video-based media objects that eLearning professionals actively use to simplify complex topics.

Why are Animated Explainer Videos so Popular?

Animated explainer videos require hours of concept planning, illustrating, animation, and audio synching which results in short 2-minute videos that effectively explain complex concepts. Well-designed characters, clear plots, smart imagery, and illustrated scenes are used to convey a message and this gives animated explainer videos an edge over normal videos.

How Effective are Animated Explainer Videos?

To start off, animated explainer videos are not just limited to eLearning or training and development. Marketing professionals often use animated explainer video services to build marketing collaterals such as how-to videos, product or service explainers, and company updates. Statistics indicates that 59% of senior executives prefer animated explainer videos when looking at a potential vendor’s products or services and 69% of consumers are ok with sharing branded animated explainer videos if it’s not poorly made, generic, or spreading misinformation. Animated explainer videos are equally effective in the world of training and development. 70% of learners prefer training when it’s supported by animated explainer videos, and most will finish a 2-to-3-minute animated explainer training video if it’s well made.

What Does it Take to Make an Animated Explainer Video?

Animated explainer videos are not easy to make. Plenty of research and behind-the-scenes work is involved, as this video may potentially represent a company’s product or services and will be viewed by their audience – be it employees, partners, or buyers.

The ideal length for an effective animated explainer video is 2 to 3-minutes and this holds true for many reasons. A marketing video longer than 3 minutes risks losing its viewers before the video reaches its call-to-action or CTA segment. A training video longer than 3 minutes risks losing the attention of learners as research indicates that humans exert 100% of their attention-span for 8 seconds before it starts diminishing.

A key component of a good explainer video is its ability to entertain and engage. The animated and illustrated nature of the video presents developers with the ability to make videos extremely entertaining and viewers expect this. Research also indicates that an informative video with an entertaining storyline is 80% more likely to be retained by a viewer.

Animated explainer videos widely use visual references to accentuate the storyline. These visual references may have nothing to do with the subject being discussed, but rather, they act as metaphors to explain the topic. For example, a finance video talking about ‘saving money’ can be complemented by the imagery of coins falling into a ‘piggy bank.’

Like any video, scripts are essential to the animated video development process. A strong script with clear progression and storyline allows developers to build videos with little hindrance. Investing time to frame a good script and storyboard can save additional time to build and perfect an animated explainer.

Voiceovers are a good addition to any video. However, it does not come cheap. Choosing the right type of voiceover is important too. The accent of the speaker should be relatable and the tone and pace should be relevant to the audience. Perfectly synched audio is critical to the success of the explainer video.
