Explainer animations are also called “explanimations”; a combination of “explanation” and “animation”. Does your product, service or organization require minimal explanation? Then creating an explainer animation may not be suitable. But if you want to convey complicated product information, perfectly elaborate the benefits of a complex service or explain an intensive process as clearly as possible, an explainer animation is indispensable. By creating an explainer video, you ensure that your message is effectively communicated to your target audience.

Anything is possible with an explainer animation

Creating an animation that seamlessly matches your corporate style evokes the desired emotion from the viewer more quickly. The right color use, typography, and chosen animation form strengthen your visual identity. This contributes to the positioning and recognizability of your company. You can even create an entirely new world in animation, where you are completely ‘in control’. Unlike film, explainer animation isn’t limited by actors, the weather, or ‘acting’ colleagues: anything is possible! And in that world, you or your product, service, or organization is – of course – the proverbial ‘king’.

Creating an explainer animation for social media

An explanimation is effective in clearly and step-by-step communicating your message. But what if you also want to use it for social media? Longer animations, like an explainer animation, are not really suitable for this. However, we can easily use fragments from it. So you could highlight one specific part of a complex process, or use only the startup information of a new machine in a LinkedIn or Facebook post…

Together, we determine the most suitable fragments. After a short (post) editing, you can use your explainer video in various ways. So your message is also effectively communicated on your social channels.
