How does it work?
The creation of an animated explanation requires a number of skills.
First, a storyboard has to be written. Such a storyboard contains the voice-over text and a description of graphics, animation and interactivity.
Next, the voice-over has to be recorded. We believe that professional voice-overs and quality recordings are very important to achieve successful high-impact content.
Finally, the content has to have a graphical design, and must be animated according to the storyboard, in perfect sync with the voice-over recording.
Very few people have all the above skills required for the end-to-end production of an animated explanation. However, you may have one of these skills! If you are a copywriter, trainer or teacher, then you are probably capable of writing a storyboard (we’ll help). If you are a graphical or multimedia designer, developer or animator, then you are probably capable of animating a storyboard.
The Explania Co-Creation Program brings these skills together. It is a program in which people with different skills work together to create new animated explanations. And it does work: watch this animated video about Hedge Funds, written by a financial specialist in Belgium and animated by a multimedia expert in Spain.
What’s in it for you?
OK, we don’t expect you to do it just for fun or for free. Some of our animations generate revenues; for instance, if they are sponsored by a company or if they are downloadable for a certain fee. So if the animation you helped to create generates such revenues, you’ll receive a percentage of them. Furthermore, if you are a freelancer and can demonstrate your capabilities to us as a Co-Creator, we may also add you to our pool of resources for customer projects.
