The Explainer video production process

At Hotbed Media, we’ve honed our explainer video production process to ensure that every project we take on results in a high-quality, engaging, and effective final product. Our process is designed to be collaborative, involving our clients at each stage to ensure that their vision is brought to life and their goals are met.

  1. Concept Development: In this initial stage, we work closely with our clients to understand their business, target audience, and the key message they want to convey. Our team of creative strategists brainstorm ideas and develop a concept that effectively communicates the client’s message in an engaging and memorable way.
  2. Scripting: Once the concept is approved, our talented scriptwriters craft a compelling narrative that tells the client’s story while keeping the target audience in mind. The script is the foundation of the explainer video, and we take great care to ensure that it is clear, concise, and effective.
  3. Storyboarding: With the script in place, our artists create a visual roadmap of the explainer video. The storyboard illustrates each scene, including the characters, actions, and transitions. This stage allows our clients to visualize the final product and provide feedback before animation begins.
  4. Animation: Our skilled animators bring the storyboard to life using state-of-the-art software and techniques. Whether it’s 2D, 3D, or motion graphics, our team creates visually stunning animations that capture the viewer’s attention and effectively convey the client’s message.
  5. Voice-Over: The right voice-over can make all the difference in an explainer video. We work with professional voice actors to find the perfect voice that aligns with the client’s brand and resonates with their target audience.
  6. Sound Design: Our sound designers create custom music and sound effects that enhance the emotional impact of the explainer video. From background music to foley sounds, every audio element is carefully crafted to create a cohesive and immersive experience.
  7. Revisions: We value our clients’ input and feedback throughout the production process. At each stage, we provide opportunities for revisions and refinements to ensure that the final product meets and exceeds our client’s expectations.
  8. Final Delivery: Once the explainer video is complete, we deliver it to our clients in their preferred format, ready to be shared with their target audience. We also provide guidance on how to effectively promote and distribute the video for maximum impact.

Throughout the entire process, our team works closely with our clients, keeping them informed and involved at every stage. This collaborative approach ensures that the final explainer video is not only visually stunning but also effectively communicates the client’s message and achieves their goals.

What Makes a Great Explainer Video?

Creating an effective explainer video requires more than just technical skill and creativity. At Hotbed Media, we follow a set of best practices to ensure that every explainer video we produce is engaging, informative, and memorable.

  1. Keep it concise: Attention spans are short, so it’s crucial to keep your explainer video concise and to the point. We recommend keeping your video between 60 and 90 seconds long to ensure that viewers stay engaged and retain the key message.
  2. Tell a story: People are naturally drawn to stories. By weaving a compelling narrative throughout your explainer video, you can capture your audience’s attention and make your message more memorable.
  3. Focus on benefits: Instead of just listing features, focus on the benefits of your product or service. Show your audience how your offering can solve their problems or make their lives easier.
  4. Use simple language: Avoid jargon and technical terms that might confuse your audience. Use simple, easy-to-understand language that resonates with your target audience.
  5. Highlight your unique value proposition: What sets your product or service apart from the competition? Make sure to highlight your unique value proposition in your explainer video to differentiate yourself and stand out in the market.
  6. Include a clear call-to-action: End your explainer video with a clear call-to-action that tells your audience what you want them to do next, whether it’s visiting your website, signing up for a free trial, or making a purchase.
  7. Optimize for search: Don’t forget to optimize your explainer video for search engines. Include relevant keywords in your video title, description, and tags to make it easier for your target audience to find your video online.

By following these best practices, you can create an explainer video that effectively communicates your message, engages your audience, and drives real results for your business.
