Guide to Making Custom Explainer Video Specifically for Beginners

Part 1 Explainer Video Creation Process

Before you make an explainer video, there are a couple of tasks you'll need to complete first. Follow these steps to create your video:

Step 1:Create a Brief

A brief is a document that outlines several key points to ensure production goes smoothly. Some critical points to bear in mind when creating it include:

• Primary goal

• Target audience

• Core message

• Tone

• Budget

Outlining these points before starting the animation process can help you keep the project on track.

Step 2:Write a Script and Storyboard

Once you've written your brief, write a script. It should contain the following sections:

• A hook

• A middle

• A call to action (CTA)

Afterward, create a storyboard. While creating one isn't necessary, it can help you identify any issues with the script before creating the video.
