Video scribing is a way of telling a story through drawings in an animation, essentially a technique for recording the live drawing process .

 

Not only does video scribing work with drawings, but with sound and videography, keeping vieweres engaged. It is one of the most effective marketing tecniques used. It combines illustration tecniques from an artist along with stop motion photography, audiio engineering, video editing and animation procedures.

 

Whiteboard Animation

Furthermore, whiteboard animation is one of the most popular formats to use for video scribing. This technique can be done by using stop motion with programmes such as Dragonfame. DragonFrame can be more time consuming, so there are other programmes such as VideoScribe, which is more simple.

VideoScribe was first launched in 2012 by a UK company, Sparkol. It is now being used in over one hundred countries worldwide!
