Five animated explainer videos, to effectively communicate a tech heavy offering.

Some brands are tech heavy, hard to explain and difficult to understand, often making it tough for them to engage users and get their name out there. Explainer videos paired with eye catching animation is a great way for complex business’ to simplify, describe and engage their audiences.

The objective.

With no simple way to explain their software capabilities, or to show how it could help school leaders improve student outcomes, we developed five easily digestible explainer videos that communicated their complex services, in bite sized information.

Overall aim: Create five animated explainer videos that simplify a complex business offering, succinctly and effectively.

The process.

As always, research.

Key to any project, research lets us get an in depth understanding of your business and find inspiration that fuels your animated projects creative development. For tech heavy businesses, this stage is even more important to make sure our understanding of your business is thorough, meaning we can hit the nail on the head with your explainer video and effectively portray exactly what you do, to the right people.

With Scomis, it was clear multiple animated explainer videos would be the best route to neatly portray what they do, breaking down their services into five informative videos. Starting from rough scripts, we developed them into visual ideas to form the narratives of each animated video.

Next, storyboarding.

Five animated videos mean there’s a lot of moving parts so once narratives are signed off, we focused on storyboarding each explainer video individually. A storyboard provides a frame-by-frame visual timeline that compliments the animations dialogue, providing a cohesive visual representation of how the animated video will work together.
