Putting ideas into motion

Animated explainers are an effective tool for engaging target audiences and building long-term brand saliency and business growth.

An explainer video agency, like Content Creatures, specialises in creating high-quality animated videos that quickly communicate complex messages or products clearly and concisely.

Grabbing viewers’ attention on social media or at an event has never been harder. People’s lives have become over-saturated with digital screens.

To connect with your target audience requires captivating, branded design, and a narrative that is true to your business, product, or service.

As recent research suggests, animation can lead to higher recall rates compared to traditional marketing media, making it the sensible choice for any content strategy.

Brand animation is a creative approach to storytelling that uses animated videos to convey your brand’s message, values, and offerings in an engaging way. The benefits are numerous – from increasing audience engagement and retention rates to making complex concepts easily understandable. Animated explainer videos can simplify your product or service explanation, making it more appealing to the audience. They can be shared on various platforms like social media, websites, and email campaigns, expanding your brand’s reach.

Experienced explainer videos companies will share a clear process. This typically starts with understanding your brand, your target audience, and your objectives. Then, a script is written, artwork is designed, and a storyboard visualises the narrative.

Once approved, the animation process begins, which includes designing characters and environments, animating the scenes, and adding voiceovers and music. The final step is post-production, where everything is polished and finalised, ready for distribution.

Pricing can vary depending on several factors – complexity of animation, length of the video, voiceover talent, music, and production timeline.

Generally, a simple motion graphic, type-led animation starts at around £7,000 for 60″, but the price increases if there is a voiceover, character animation or 3D elements.

It’s important to discuss your budget and requirements upfront to ensure the project aligns with your expectations. Remember, an effective animated explainer video is an investment that can yield significant returns in terms of brand visibility and customer engagement.

Look for a company that has a robust portfolio of successful, award-winning work, positive client testimonials, and experience in your industry.

The right company will guide you through the process, offering creative ideas while respecting your brand guidelines. Content Creatures, for instance, prides itself on a collaborative approach that delivers quality animations and excellent brand storytelling.
