How many Wizards does it take to create an animated video?

When you work with the wizards you’re working with a team of experts that make you the star of the show, but how many wizards does it take to bring your animated explainer to life?

Can you believe that it can take up to five expert wizards?

From start to finish these wizards will be working with you to conjure up a video that communicates your vision so powerfully your audience will go wild.

Apparently, 91% of people say they want to see more online videos from brands in 2023 (WyzOwl, 2022), so it makes sense to do it, right?

You might be tempted to save some money and hire a lone wolf animator and whilst this might save you a little bit of money, it’s not going to:

1. Save your time.

2. Allow you to see your animation at every stage of the game.

3. Or have an expert to keep you updated through each stage of the process.

So who are these wizards?

When working with the wizards you will be guided through our practically perfect process by Becky the time wizard, she will be answering all your questions and making sure you are up-to-date from beginning to end.

Becky also makes sure the wizards know exactly what you need; translating your visionary ideas into brilliant briefs.

Your script will be written by Jess; the first wizard to start bringing your vision to life, expertly matching your tone of voice and making your messaging clear, concise and animation appropriate. With years of experience writing scripts for explainer videos, Jess knows how to turn words into spellbinding captivating content that will engage an audience regardless of the subject matter.

If your brand has brilliant brand guidelines our branding wizard Harry will unpick them finding all the key elements that should flow effortlessly through your animation.

Harry helps to guide the animators, giving them the assets they need to start the concept art stage. You might not even be aware of this wonderful wizarding work until you see how your brand has been correctly communicated in the animation.

Then one of our amazing animation wizards, Gareth or Jordan will swoop in, taking these words and assets and start bringing them to life.

The animator working their magic on your video will be part of the project from the concept stage onward, although sometimes if it is a large project with a number of characters, you might be lucky enough to have two animation wizards working on it.

The Wizards love working together too, the more collaboration the better!

Teamwork makes the dream work

Our creative experts can turn your dreams into a reality, but you are the market expert.

This is why we always put our clients at the heart of what we do. Without your expert insights into how your consumers see you and what they care about, the wizards could end up going in completely the wrong direction.  

As a consequence, our alchemical process has been designed to keep things simple, encourage collaboration, and keep content consistently compelling. 

With the wizards by your side, you’ll have a hard time blending in online.

And your audience will have an even harder time ignoring you.
