We have a model we use that works as a well-oiled machine, however, it’s as flexible as they come. Reviews, suggestions, comments are always welcome!
Ok, so let’s see what are the stages of explainer video production with Renderforest.
There are 6 main stages to the creation process. The first one is the Research. The market is researched, the trends in the sphere, the competitors and so on to ensure an innovative, interesting and trendy product is created.
After that Comes the stage of Scripting, where the work is handed over to the experienced scriptwriters, who will start processing the voice over script based on the client’s needs and the length of the video. Any revisions at this point will be processed if needed.
At this point illustrators come to play, who create hand drawn sketches, creating characters and environments. At this stage, the customer approves the storyboard.
After the approval comes the turn to the voice over talents to leave their mark, in case our video needs a voice over. If not, depending on the plan you have, they will create the music, especially for your video.
Simultaneously to the voice-over process, animation process is held. Here is where all the magic happens. The simple sketches transform into a contemporary work of art, which will drive your sales through the roof.
Once the animation is over, the sound engineers will put together the animation, music and the voice over.
The moment all is said and done, the video is presented to the client.
So you have some frame of reference, here are examples of the work so you can get an idea what kind of work is done at Renderforest. You can see our portfolio here.
