Whiteboard Animation Explainer Videos

 

  1. SCRIPT: HOW TO START THE PROCESS?

 

Basically, a whiteboard animation is a video that tells a story using drawings, voice and music. The process start with the creation of a script that will define the scenes of the explainer video.

This script can be read using a professional voiceover (recommended) or you can choose not to use voiceover (using only text or music).

In order to start we ask our clients to send us a first draft of what they have in mind for their video and with no extra fee we will check it and make suggestions.

If you need more information please visit our section of script guidelines and templates in our how to order whiteboard animations

 

  1. LENGHT: HOW CAN I CALCULATE THE TIME OF THE VIDEO?

If you plan to create a whiteboard with voiceover the time of your movie can be calculated by the number of words. The formula is: 100 words will make 1:00 minute of video.

If you plan to create a whiteboard with no voiceover  the time of your movie can be calculated by the number of scenes. The formula is:  7 scenes will make 1:00 minute of video

(Please keep in mind we add an extra of 15 to 20 seconds to each video for the final scene or call to action)

  1. DELIVERY: HOW LONG IT TAKES TO CREATE THE WHITEBOARD?

 

Once the script is reviewed and approved the process will take one week (7 days).  We encourage you to participate on the process so you will receive email updates to review the process of the film adn
