Why a whiteboard film?

Five reasons to choose a whiteboard animation.

? At least 65% of the population prefer to learn visually

? People remember the content of a whiteboard film 15% better (compared to a talking head film)

? With film, you can convey a lot of information in just a little time

? In a whiteboard film, illustrations are synchronized with audio, which makes it easier to understand complex information

? Illustrations work really well if you want to show connections or a correlation in information.

How does it work?

Let us explain in six steps.

The process
We've separated our process into clear, distinct steps. Have you agreed to the quotation? Then let's begin!
Image is not available
The script
We start with an extensive interview where we ask you every question we can think of. Based on this our copywriter creates a first draft of the script.
Image is not available
The illustrations
Based on the text, our illustrator makes a first version of the drawings. Don't worry, we'll ask for your feedback!

Voice-over
Once the text is finalized, the voice-over can start working. Do you want a business-like tone? Enthusiastic? Sultry? Compelling? It's up to you!

Filming
When you're completed satisfied, we start the process of illustrating and filming the video. A 3-minute film equals 8 hours of drawing for us!

Clever and appealing video

WENB_Logo

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.

R. Blankemeijer

Pleasant people

NS

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.

Maud van Deven

Curious and very open!

GemeenteDenHaag_Logo

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!

Sonja de Bake

Correct feeling evoked

NS

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!

Six of our colleagues tell their story.

You can take a glimpse into a different world

Sophie

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.

Sophie Loonen
Chief Filming Officer

This creates an unambiguous starting point

Charlotte-3

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.

Charlotte van Leeuwen
Chief Whiteboard Officer

You make a connection with different companies

Michiel kleiner

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.

Michiel Niesten
Chief Filming Officer

Driven and enthusiastic people

Betina2

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.

Betina Van Meter
Chief Drawing Officer

Making a contribution to society

Merel-Remkes-2

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?

Merel Remkes
Chief Writing Officer

Building expertise for a specific group

Violet2

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.

Violet Swakman
Chief Planning Officer

Bord&Stift in numbers:

videos made

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.
