The Doodle Video Production Process

We bet by now you’re wondering how whiteboard animation video production actually works. Well, producing a Doodle Video is a really straightforward process. But we’ve broken it down into five easy steps, so you can see how we go about creating our amazing videos. 

Stage 1 – the script

The first step in the whiteboard animation process is the script. You might want to supply your own script, but if not, we’ll work with you to create the perfect script to deliver your message. You’ll need to think about what you want your video to tell people – are you selling a product or service? Or maybe just trying to explain a concept? Once you’re 100% happy with the script, we move on to stage 2!

Stage 2 – The Voice Over

Next, we move on to the voiceover. It’s really important that you choose the right voice to convey your message. You’ll need to consider whether a male or female voice will be the best fit; maybe a regional accent? Or perhaps a young voice? We have a range of artists, and we’ll help you decide what would be best for your project before we get your script professionally recorded.

Stage 3 – Illustrations

Now the fun begins. We’ll take your finished script to our talented illustrators and get them to create the images that will engage your audience and tell your story. This is where the script comes alive with the characters and scenes your viewers will watch.

Stage 4 – Video Production

With all the components ready, our production team works to create your video! We’ll take the voice-over and illustrations and bring it all alive with the magic of video animation. This is also where you can add any extras such as additional animation, open or closed captioning, and royaltyfree backing music.

Stage 5 – Distribution

Once production is finished, it’s time to publish. We’ll upload your completed HD video file in whatever format you choose to Dropbox or Vimeo. You can then download it to use wherever you need it. Alternatively, we can publish to YouTube, on our channel or on your own. You can then use the link to the video on your website or wherever else you choose. It’s that easy!

What voiceover should I choose for my whiteboard explainer video?

Choosing the right voiceover for your whiteboard animation production is vital to achieving the perfect finished product. Fortunately, we have a wide team of talented voiceover artists able to convey whatever tone you need. We even have international accent options and children’s voices if needed! You can check out the voice-over artists we have on offer to find your perfect fit. 

How soon can I expect my finished customised animation video?

We understand that you will be excited to receive your finished whiteboard animation production as soon as possible. But when the video looks as good as this, we still need a little time to work our magic. From the moment you give the green light on the storyboard and script, we will work to a turnaround of around 15 working days, including time for reviewing the rough storyboard and draft video stages. But if you have a deadline you need to achieve, we’ll work with you to try to achieve it. 

Is animation video content hand-drawn?

All of our images are hand-drawn by our talented team of illustrators.  You’ll never see stock images or re-used content in any of our videos. You can explore our illustration styles to find the one that best suits your vision. We can even create characters with your team’s characteristics if you need that!
