How To Make Whiteboard Animation Videos in 4 steps
Whiteboard animation is the new upcoming thing in today’s video marketing world. Just to make this very clear whiteboard animation and video scribing are one in the same thing. When we first came into the business nobody knew the right words to search for but now since we have created sites to pick up many different keywords it is a little easier to find whiteboard animation companies. I have had some clients tell me they had been searching for months on different search engines to try and locate a video scribing company. They were just searching the wrong terms. Let’s get back to the topic. How do you create a Whiteboard Animation Video? It is simple but at the same time, it can become very time-consuming and complicated.
1. Script: It all starts with a powerful script. The reason for video scribing becoming what it is today was the script written by Ken Robinson. He did a presentation on TEDx a couple of years ago and it was put into a whiteboard animation. ‘Changing Education Paradigm Shift” was powerful and created a lot of buzzes. It all starts with the script.
2. Storyboard and Layout: Once a script is perfected the next step is to create a fantastic storyboard. This is the part in whiteboard animation where you get creative and put pictures to the script. It can take 2 weeks or 6 months. It all depends on how complicated you want the drawings.
3. Voice Recording: You get a professional voice to record your script. Many people like to record their own but we highly recommend getting a professional. They are worth the money!
4. Recording and Final Production: Once the script and the storyboard are completed the final production begins. This is the part where you record the artist drawing his layout. Once that is completed you send it over to the video production crew and let them put it all together.
There you have a couple of simple steps on how to create a whiteboard animation video. Obviously, it is a little more complicated when you start to create professional videos, but the steps are the same. When creating a whiteboard animation video remember to keep it simple. Einstein said, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” Start with the most powerful script you can create then work down from there.
