What are whiteboard videos?
Whiteboard videos are a style of videos where the screen is a whiteboard and the animation is “drawn.” It is very modern looking and has a pedantic nature. Think of it as a teacher explaining something in detail using visuals, sounds, and other animation.
Whiteboard videos can be used for any type of video. They have been used for commercials, explainer videos, and everything in between. What truly makes whiteboard videos standout is their unique format.
What are the features of a high quality whiteboard video?
As previously mentioned, whiteboard videos have a very unique format in that the story is being told via drawings on a whiteboard. The illustrations become animated and information is conveyed. However, for a whiteboard video to be successful, it must contain the following features:
- It has a compelling story, meaning the plot needs to be well thought out
- The designs are professional in nature; we have trained illustrators on standby that can produce work of art animation
- It contains metaphors and analogies that make understanding the topic easier
- The sound design is fully aligned with the imagery and animation
These are just the main features that are required for a whiteboard video to be high quality. Since every customer’s needs are different, your individual video will be customized to meet your particular needs.
