Why a whiteboard film?
Five reasons to choose a whiteboard animation.
How does it work?
Let us explain in six steps.
What do our clients say about us?
On average they give us a 9.1 out of 10.
Clever and appealing video
Great organization! I got a planning and a quote very quickly. The further coordination went well and Bord&Stift always delivered exactly what was agreed upon. The message to be conveyed was expressed and visualized in a very clever and appealing way in the video.
The strength of Bord & Stift is, in my opinion, in fast switching, proactive thinking and the pleasant people who work there! We are very satisfied with the result, which has been delivered within a very short timeframe.
Curious and very open!
My experience was very good. Quick response to our proposal to meet (the next day!) In addition, the cooperation was also very pleasant, curious and able to empathize properly, which is also an important part of the process in my opinion. Afterwards, they worked individually again but again everything was quickly picked up and everyone was easily accessible for the feedback. In short, a great cooperation, fast, flexible, curious and very open!
Correct feeling evoked
Good guidance, good translation of our message in a great text / outline.
Illustrations well translated (correct feeling evoked). Good translation of the briefing and accurately delivered our latest changes in a very short term!
Creative and professional
Pleasant cooperation, flexible, fast understanding, creative and professional.
Plenty of room for input
We have worked very well with Bord&Stift; there is plenty of room for input and our feedback was well processed.
We are happy with the end result!

Why do we love our job so much?
Six of our colleagues tell their story.
You can take a glimpse into a different world
Making a film is always a challenge. It is often a complicated subject and the content must be exactly right. But, that is exactly what makes it so nice! You can take a dip in a subject that you would otherwise not easily come into contact with. It is really a glimpse into another world.
This creates an unambiguous starting point
You often see that when it comes to sensitive themes, everybody has an opinion about it, but almost no one understands the exact workings or details of the topic. With the films we make, an unambiguous starting point is created. In this way, the conversation between the parties changes: no yes-versus-no discussion about the facts, but rather a substantive discussion about what the next steps are.
You make a connection with different companies
I like that we make whiteboard videos about a broad range of topics. The videos are never the same and during the process you learn things that you otherwise would never have known. We also often see that companies come back to us when we have made a film for them. In this way you build up a connection with a company and this improves the process of making a video with them.
Driven and enthusiastic people
What I always like about making films is that we get to work with enthusiastic people who are really motivated to get their message accross.
Making a contribution to society
Films that contribute to society give me the most energy. We created for example a video for the Women Inc. foundation: a nice video about the distribution of care tasks at home. I find the best challenge to get into the eyes of the viewer: how can we pack the message in such a way that it fits with their experience?
Building expertise for a specific group
I find it interesting that we recently learned a lot about making films for low-literate people or people with a mild intellectual disability. Our videos lend themselves well for that. I really enjoy building expertise to address a group of people who are usually often skipped.
Bord&Stift in numbers:
Sounds good! But ummm... what are the costs?
We work with a fixed price per film.
This way you know upfront what the deal is.
Why does a film cost €4.475,-?
Because we put a lot of time,
love and creativity into making it.
Something we often hear from our clients is: “We’re really happy with the film, but even happier with the fact that we now know ourselves what the crux of our story is.” Our added value is not only the film itself, but also the fact that you can tell your story now in a clear and simple way.
We spend time and attention getting to the core and really investigate what your subject is about and what you want to convey. This way, we can transform your story (no matter how complex) into a clear and simple film.
