Hand drawn or digital?

You can choose if you want your whiteboard animation to be hand drawn or digital. A digital video contains more animations and you can choose specific colours. Because visual communication works best, we made a short video about it!

Our working method

1. A meeting with you

We'd love to come by for an intake so we can make sure the videos fits your organisation perfectly. You are also more than welcome to come and visit us in Amsterdam!

2. The text

The power of a good whiteboard animation is a complete yet short text that is visually written so that it will be well enhanced by the drawings.

3. To the drawing board!

When the text is finalized our illustrator is ready to make your video as interesting and clear as possible in the most creative way. Once you've approved the illustrations we will film it all live.

4. Editing

All the video material is then merged and trimmed by the editor. The voiceover will be recorded and the editor will send you your finished whiteboard animation.

Frequently Asked Questions about whiteboard animations

As well as making videos our illustrators are also available for live drawing events. They create a visual record of events during a meeting, event or conference.

In addition, we can also drop by your office for a drawing workshop. Why take minutes when your team can process ideas and plans clears in a drawing? “I can’t draw!” Don’t worry, after this workshop, you’ll be able to.

During Corona we will of course no longer do these activities in person. Fortunately, both live drawing and the drawing workshop are also very suitable to do online via Zoom, Teams or another medium of your choice.

We need 6 weeks from the first interview. In our experience that’s how much time we need for everyone to enjoy the process and deliver a good end product. If you need a whiteboard animation faster, it’s sometimes possible, but depends on our planning and availability.

You can always email or call us (+31 20 2617 491), but if we’re making a whiteboard animtion for you we like to meet you. This can be done online via Zoom, at your office or at our cozy office on the Haarlemmerstraat in Amsterdam.

💻 Because of Corona, most of the appointments are now via Zoom.

During a 2-hour session we work together to get to the core of your story, to make sure no information is overlooked.

Usually there are 2 or 3 illustrators available at any one time, so we send you a sample of their work during the planning process. You can choose an artist based on the style that best suits your video. If you’re in a hurry or it’s very busy at the office, then choice of illustrators can be limited. In any case, we’ll always discuss with you which illustrator will be best suited to your project.

Hell yes! There are all kinds of options. Men, women, enthusiastic, sultry, fluent, serious, English accent, Dutch accent or any other language. You can decide yourself who best fits your video.

We’ve already made whiteboard animations for a lot of clients. Companies like NS, KLM, the University of Amsterdam, ING, the Dutch National Police, the municipality of the Hague and the city of Amsterdam, Klokhuis and Women Inc among others.

Certainly. So far we’ve made whiteboard animations in Flemish, French, Spanish, Arabic, Berber and German. We have an external agency translate the text and we provide a voice-over in the relevant language.

As much time as you want! On average the client spends 3-5 hours per video. We begin the process with an extensive interview about content, which usually lasts 2 hours. We need that time to get the detail straight.

From then on, we take over the process and the only time you need to contribute is giving feedback. Depending on how much feedback you give, the amount of time varies – it could be 5 minutes or 30 minutes. You can also brainstorm with the illustrator, which takes another 2 hours.

Of course! In fact, even if you do have ideas for the whiteboard animation, you’ll probably still want to talk about it in-depth. But don’t worry, you don’t need to have a clear idea of what you want or even a briefing prepared for us. In the first interview we’ll ask all the questions we need to in order to make the whiteboard animation. We do this based on this template:

We begin the process with an extensive interview of 2-3 hours. This allows us to explore the content and get a good idea of the whiteboard animation’s core message.

Then our copywriter starts working on a first draft. You give feedback on the text until it’s exactly what you want.

Once the text is decided, our illustrator will make proof drawings. These are sent to you as a PDF and can also give feedback.

Finally, the voice-over records the text. If you want, you can phone in and listen to the voice-over to give more feedback.

Once everything is agreed and finalized, we manually draw and film the whiteboard animation (for a 3-minute whiteboard animation this takes around 8 hours). We edit everything together and send the whiteboard animation to you in .MP4 format, or any other format you prefer.

Between each step in the process, versions of the text and illustrations are sent back and forth to the client for feedback.

This can be done by email or telephone, until you’re completely satisfied with the content of the final whiteboard animation.

After you’ve given us the definitive ‘GO’, we dive into the film studio to record the whiteboard animation.

A few days later it’s delivered to your digital door.
