Whiteboard Video

Bring static images to life & simply express complex messages with cost-effective whiteboard video.

Turn complex concepts into simple content with a whiteboard explainer video 

Do you remember those good days back at school when a teacher was able to demonstrate even the most complicated topic using just a board and a pen? If you happen to have a long and complex product or service that also needs explanation, opt for a whiteboard animation video.

Simple yet effective, whiteboard explainer videos bring drawing and text to life using moving graphics. This style of animation is perfect for brands that wish to communicate more complex information and are suitable for any audience ranging from internal educational videos to branded social media content. 

At Nibble, our team of seasoned animation professionals work closely with your marketing and sales team to develop the right content for all your communication needs. Unlike many animation studios, our work is completely bespoke and unique to your business, which allows you to stand out in a crowded market.

Our Production Process in 9 Steps

Creative Kick-Off Session

The kick-off is a chance to gather all the creative brains within the project team together before production begins. We believe in having as much face-to-face time as possible, whether that’s at our studio, your office, or even via videoconference. As well as creative discussions around how the story or style treatment will best engage with the audience, we’ll also discuss practical topics like what the key deliverables will be, what the main call to action is and what project success will look like.

Go To Script

Scriptwriting

Once we fully understand your message, we’ll start to draft a script. This might mean starting from scratch, or honing and developing a script you already have. The voiceover script is accompanied by a written shot-by-shot description of what the viewer will see on screen and this helps to provide a mental picture of the action before we start producing the storyboards. This ‘shooting script’ might also include reference images or animated gifs which help to explain the action.

Go To Storyboards

Storyboards

The storyboards are a grid of deliberately rough sketched individual artwork panels (or images). They show all of the shots in your video, and the order in which they’ll appear. Each panel is accompanied by the voiceover that will feature during that shot, as well as notes which explain the action. In some cases, we might also produce an animatic. An animatic is a video version of the storyboards and might include an animation test, a dummy voiceover as well as sample sound design and music.

Go To Artwork

Artwork

Once the storyboards have been approved, we’ll create all of the artwork layouts. We’ll typically start with proof of concept art which we call a ‘style frame’ and/or character designs. This ensures you can be involved in developing the final design style. Alongside the storyboards, the style frame will give you a really good sense for what the final film will look like. Once the artwork is approved, we’ll get to work producing all the layouts. These are essentially a polished version of the storyboards in the final design style.

Go To Animation

Animation

Once you’re happy with the artwork layouts, we get to the most exciting part of the process. For 2D vector ‘cutout’ animation, our artist will rig the characters bodies, giving them an adjustable bone structure which allows them to pose the character like a puppet. Alternatively, the artist may animate tradigitally – imagine old-school Disney frame-by-frame animation, but in a computer. Cutout animation is a more cost-effective approach whilst traditional animation offers greater fluidity of animation.

Go To Sound

Sound Design

Although we have access to some award-winning composers, in the majority of cases we’ll source and present customised stock music track options. We aren’t restricted to using royalty-free music and our fixed fee music costs are inclusive of all necessary usage licences. The Producer will provide a series of music alternatives which are based on your preferences and, once you’re happy, we’ll combine this with the voiceover to form a soundtrack that sounds as amazing as your video looks.

Go To Voiceover

Studio VO Recording

All of our voiceover is studio recorded by professional voice artists and actors and the fixed price quoted is inclusive of the studio, Producer, and Sound Engineer costs, as well as the artists’ record and usage fee. You can even conference into the recording session to help direct the voice artist. Once recorded, the Sound Engineer will clean up the voiceover and a Sound Designer from Nibble will edit the audio. This voiceover is combined with the music to form the soundtrack that the animation is timed to.
