Our Animated Explainer Process
Making a quality video includes several steps and requires a lot of time and collaboration. Here's a snapshot of the process for an animated explainer video.
STEP 1: SCRIPTING
Our team works with your team directly to develop the perfect concept for your story and drafts up a creative script.
STEP 2: STORYBOARDING
This is where our team creates the visuals for your video to establish the right style, art direction, and character designs.
STEP 3: FIRST HALF DRAFT
We start to put the animation to life in this step bringing together the last two steps to show you a preview of the video.
STEP 4: FIRST FULL DRAFT
In this step, you get to see the first full draft of your video with a voice actor, full animations, and music. At each point, you can provide us with feedback and we happily make adjustments.
STEP 5: FINAL DRAFT
Once you are head over heels for your video, we provide you with a downloadable link for your high-resolution video!

Why should I make an Animated Explainer Video?Animated Explainer Videos are the perfect way to explain your company to your client. Unlike live-action videos, animated explainers can visualize any concept or idea, no matter how big and complex, and make it simple to digest. This makes it the perfect medium to share who you are and what you do.
Do I have to come up with the concept?If you have a clear vision for your perfect video, then that’s great! We’ll be more than happy to make your vision a reality. On the other hand, if you know you need an Animated Explainer but have no idea what it should consist of, don’t worry! We are storytellers and we’ll make sure to come up with a great script for you to review. Just provide us with your goal and some background on your company, like a white-page, links to your website, or other marketing material and we’ll make it happen.
How much does an Animated Explainer Video cost?Animated Explainer Videos range in cost, depending on which company you choose to work with. Some companies give you a cheap bare-bones video, while other companies try to swindle you into paying for an unnecessarily expensive video. At the Bear’s Den Entertainment, we try to offer video options for every budget. Our animated explainer videos are priced by the complexity and length of the video. Our prices include scriptwriting, storyboarding, and animating, with revisions at each step of the process. Check out our pricing page here for the full details.
How does the process work?Our process is simple. After we talk to you about the idea for the video, we write out a script that is personalized to your brand and vision. You’ll receive the script after a few days and once we implement any feedback you have, we’ll move on to the next stage. The next stage includes storyboarding your video to visualize the final product. We’ll send it over to you to give any notes to make sure it’s ready for animation. Then we get started on the video. We will create half of the video to make sure you like how it’s coming along. After we get the go-ahead, we will finish the first draft of the Animated Explainer. We'll implement any final notes and you’ll have your finished masterpiece! If after the final draft you feel like there can still be improvements to the video, that’s no problem! For an extra cost, we will go over a few more revisions to make sure your video is just like you want it.
How long does it take to make an Animated Explainer Video?Depending on how long you want your Animated Explainer, the entire process usually takes about 3-6 weeks. Each stage usually consists of 1-2 weeks, depending on the complexity of the project. Of course, sometimes your video might require more time depending on the complexity of the project, and we’ll make sure to outline that at the beginning of the project.
