A Step-By-Step Description Of A Video Production

A video production that explains is a multi-step process that has more experts than one. Typically, an explainer team comprises of a Storyboard Artist, Scriptwriter, Illustrator,voice over Artist, Sound-Effects Artist, and Animator. Each of these roles uniquely contributes to the success of a video production.

Here's a step-by-step description

Step I: Knowing the Client Brief

The first step involves going through client's answers, as filled by the client. This form is very important as it allows the experts to understand his or her business entity and requirement. Typically, it is the scriptwriter who can go through this process. In the case of queries or doubts, an interaction between the client and the scriptwriter arranged.

Step II: Brainstorming

Once the relevant information has already been gathered, a secondary research is conducted. The research comes after to get a better understanding of the company. The brief is transmitted to the storyboard artist and animator n a best possible way. After understanding the brief, these people will sit down with the scriptwriter. The scriptwriter is solely responsible for visualizing the storyline, complementing visual elements, decide on characterizations, and finalize those elements for animation. Once the whole thing is decided, the video is crafted.

Step III: Voiceover and Scripting 

According to the discussion, the video script of an explainer is sent to the client for approval. In most cases, a 60-second script contains approximately 150 words. This script serves as the 'armature' in which the video is being sculpted. Once approved, the script is then recorded as a voiceover. At a later stage, it is placed as a video narration.

Step IV: Illustration and Storyboarding

Storyboarding involves lay outing and sketching of the scenes in the video. It is done on the basis of the script. Once done, the client will approve the output. Once everything is approved, it goes through colorization and is sent again to the client for his approval. 

Step V: Animation and Sound Effects

This process will only start once the storyboard is approved. As apparent as it seems, this category consumes a lot of time, but it is the only way to give the characters to life. The animation is conducted based on the voice over, hence ensuring the right synchronization between the visual and the audio.

Step VI: Delivery

Once the client has approved all the elements, the concluding video together with its source files is then delivered to the client. Based on the client's requirement, it is delivered in 'avi' 'mp4' or 'mov' format(s).
