Animated Explainer Video

Animated explainer videos are the optimal way to explain a complex product, service or subject in a way your audience will understand (usually in 2 minutes or less). Explainers can be 2D, 3D or mixed media and often use humour and other storytelling principles. 

  • Timing (4-6 weeks). 

Product Explainer Video

A product explainer is a short (30-60 seconds) video that communicates features, benefits and delivers a hook that helps you move product. Product explainers are highly effective tools for B2B, SAAS and DTC. 

Mixed Media Explainer

A mixed media explainer is a brief, impactful video reel designed to encapsulate a company’s essence and value proposition. Targeted at a mature marketing audience, its key components are stock video and photos, music, voiceover and kinetic motion graphics.

Kinetic Iconography

We’ll create custom iconography, charts, graphs and anything else you need to bring clarity to key facts. These elements can be interwoven with live action, or can be used in an entirely animated video.
