HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
On average you can expect 4-5 weeks for production time, which does not include the time required for your feedback and revisions, which can add an additional 3-4 weeks (on average), depending on the quantity and complexity of your requests, as well as your feedback turnaround time. Every project is unique, so the complexity will impact the time required for production. The rest depends on how quickly the client provides feedback, how many revisions are requested, and how complex the changes are.
HOW DO FEEDBACK AND REVISIONS WORK?
Creating a video is a team effort and your collaboration is key to producing a successful one. At each step in the process, you will have several rounds of revisions, and with that we will come up with the final outcome.
HOW DOES Video Explainers WORK?
Video Explainers work a little differently than any standard video production company. While all of the creative direction, scripting, and project management is typically done in-house, we collaborate with a collective of talented designers, animators, directors, voices, composers, and sound designers from around the world (and even some in our own office). Depending on what you’re looking for, we’ll assemble a mini team to bring it to life. This setup gives us the flexibility to provide an endless range of styles and continually produce fresh, unique creative work.
HOW LONG SHOULD MY VIDEO BE?
We try to keep our videos as short and succinct as possible (30-120 seconds) while still conveying all of the necessary information. Often this means we can’t cover everything your heart desires. But that’s okay. A video is meant to give viewers just enough information to get them interested in taking the next step (e.g. requesting more info, signing up for a trial, etc).
WHAT’S INVOLVED IN GETTING STARTED?
For starters, get in touch and let us know what you’re looking for. Once we have a good understanding of your goals and objectives, we’ll provide a formal estimate. Assuming you approve, we’ll send across a Video Services Agreement along with an initial invoice for 50% of the project total. We’ll also provide a creative brief and schedule a call with your dedicated project manager and creative director to review the materials before officially getting started.
WHO OWNS THE RIGHTS TO THE VIDEO?
The final video is yours. You own it and can do what you please with it. The full copyright details are outlined in our Video Services Agreement.
