An animated startup video or startup explainer video is a short animated clip that presents a business idea simply and engagingly. Animation helps to convey information about a product in uncomplicated terms. In 1 or 2 minutes, the company can clearly show its work and values to the customers. The ideal length for a startup video is somewhere between 60 and 90 seconds. The straightforwardness is key. In these videos, brands use features that can make it as memorable as possible, such as: a positive approach, cartoon characters, colorful background, and humor.
Why exaclty stratup videos work?
Startup videos help a company not only to present itself but also to build brand awareness and recognition. That is the reason why many companies in their startup video utilize their main brand colors. In startup videos, companies use mostly visual means to introduce customers with an idea, and animation works perfectly for it. It is so easy to understand partly due to classic three staged narrative structure.
This type of video is often used in email marketing and social media platforms.
“I’m the owner of Wooden Leg Productions, a children’s transmedia company. We write, perform, direct, produce, and create children’s media and merchandise content (toys, books, audio-files, MP3’s, and animations).
We hired Darvideo to do storyboarding and create animation for one of our audio products. Our goal was to produce a pilot to present to major studios. The video is a ten-minute animation that features comedic content, timing, and physical comedy we created. Darvideo captured the essence of the story.
In a few words, Darvideo was responsive, professional, creative, and accommodating at the highest levels. We’ve received numerous accolades and have just been accepted to house our content on a major cell phone app for our city. The only way this project could have been improved is if we had sufficient funds to move faster.”
