We’ll start with a creative questionnaire and a kick-off conversation.

At the end of the day, our goal is to get you and your organization a successful video. That means that we first have to understand what you define as a success. We’ll also be sure to walk you through our custom video management dashboard and answer any questions you might have.



Develop a blueprint of your project with a script, sketched storyboard, style frames, and voice talent options.

Since it can be hard to make informed decisions about revisions/approvals at the beginning of a project, we wrap together a complete pre-production project proposal to help you understand the overall vision for your project and remedy potential roadblocks that could come to haunt our production timeline.

We offer 2 rounds of revisions per deliverable because, while we’re the video experts, you’re the expert in your business and so we encourage you to tell us what you like, don’t like, or want us to add and we’ll bring those changes to life.



Visualize the graphics and tone of your video with an illustrated storyboard and professional voice over.

By combining the sketched storyboard and style frames, we illustrate a complete, frame-by-frame storyboard. And by combining the script with the approved voice talent we get a professional voice over recorded to match your brand’s tone. With this, you’ll have a fully visualized map of what your final video will look like.

This is the part of our process where you really start to get an idea of what the final product will look like, have something to show off to the rest of your office, and make Bill from sales jealous that he didn’t come up with the idea.

Final delivery


The moment we’ve all been waiting for.

Woo! Your final video is here and that’s something worth celebrating. For your final delivery, you’ll receive an uncompressed version of your video as well as a smaller viewing version. You also get any and all illustrated art assets like characters or icons to use in other marketing materials, plus any shortened cuts that you’re interested in using around the web.

This is the part where you get to go to your boss and blow their socks off with the great work you get to take credit for.

Any time we bring in a new production partner for a client project, it puts our reputation on the line. Will the work be good? Will the process work for us? Are they open to collaboration? The answer was “yes”. I’m proud of the work we’ve done together for an important client, and consider Explainly to be a trusted partner.

The Explainly Team is tremendously professional, kind, collaborative, and responsive. We had a need for an explainer video to reach out to high school students about data science. From concept to storyboarding to animation drafts, we were impressed with the creative direction that Explainly took. Throughout the whole process, the team was communicative and understanding of our tight deadlines.

Natalie Laurin

From beginning to end, Explainly was amazing. Aaron Chen made sure to ask all the right questions to make sure our needs were met throughout the process. They kept things on track by sending nudges and requesting zoom appointments to resolve any pending items– as a busy executive I greatly appreciated that. We were very happy with the beautifully animated video.

Meghan Harmon


Exceeded our expectations in every regard! Explainly struck a perfect balance between incorporating our input, and offering their own professional insights.

An absolute team of rockstars with an awesome process.

Very communicative, hit all of our stretch goals, and made sure we were happy with the end result.
