What You Need to Get a Whiteboard Video Done in One Week

Sometimes the latter is caused by external obstacles, and sometimes a client doesn鈥檛 realize that video production is a聽time-consuming聽process.

To be clear, making an explainer video includes concept development, scripting, storyboarding, illustrations, animation,聽voiceover,聽and music.

It聽takes about 5-6 weeks.

This gives the studio a chance to work at a normal pace and gives you a chance to make adequate revisions and changes to your video.

But what to do if you didn鈥檛 plan to create a video, but now external obstacles clearly tell you that you need one and need it very fast. This is what happened to Shane Barber when he started 鈥淲e care, take action鈥. His organization looks for donations to聽provide tangible, timely, relief to farmers and ranchers that have suffered loss聽by wildfire. He wanted to launch the video ASAP while people have a heightened awareness of聽recent wildfires聽in the US.

He said seven days.
Guess what? We did it and here is the result:

Now we want to talk about tips that allow you to guide your animation studio under extremely tight deadlines:

  • You should know what you want聽– Shane came to us with a clear understanding that he wanted to tell his story and show how he can help these people.When you finish the call with a clear picture in your head, that鈥檚 a good sign.
  • Responsiveness & quick feedback聽– this is probably the most important factor to ensure a smooth workflow. Understanding that you have the same responsibility as a vendor gives a better chance of completing the project successfully and quickly.
  • You should not expect miracles –聽Understanding this fact at the start of the project also helps to avoid trouble. We don鈥檛 mean you should prefer speed over quality, we mean you should make the video as a聽dynamic whiteboard animation, with a small number of characters in your story.
  • Trust the team –聽聽In hiring a video production company you should trust them and let them do what they do best: whether it is explaining your idea, your product,聽or producing an investor pitch.

And this is what Shane told us:
