Six Steps to Produce an Online Video with Revolution Productions

Without sounding like an infomercial, we wanted to lay out just how easy it is to create online videos with Revolution Productions. Yes, there are many complicated steps when making explainer videos, but the complicated part is left to the producers, not you. So here we go through the six easy steps!

1. Script-Concept development
In this step, we will send you our ‘video concept questionnaire’. Don’t panic, there are simple questions about your project for us to get more of an idea of what you want. Typical questions ask about style, desired results, length, and deadline. So that was easy, ready for step two?

2. Design Concept Development
Eeeek sounds complicated, no? Well, it’s actually not. In this step, we will produce three distinct design styles using the script-concept as a basis. You can choose the illustration/design style to be used for the animation and give feedback on what you’d like to be changed… If you are making a cartoon web video, we figure out what sort of voice-over to have, and if you are having a web presenter style, we find a person. OK, not so bad. Let’s hit it #3!

3. Storyboarding
We’ll produce the storyboard for the whole animation. See it’s still us doing the work! This is the visual elements of the animation frame by frame with the script. This is bit like a comic book strip. Then you tell us what you like, what you don’t and BAM step three is complete! And whoaaa we’re halfway theeeerree!

4. Voice-Over
We’ll send you a sample of US voice-over artists we use for our work. You’ll tell us which one you prefer or we can do a talent search to find you a voice-over artist you like. Then we record and you, again, tell us your thoughts. See…pretty easy stuff!

5. Production
This is where we pull everything together. We’ll animate and perform the composition of the stop-motion animation. We’ll produce the first complete version and send you a link to get your feedback. You are basically just sittin pretty during this whole thing.

6. Hosting
Final step! We recommend video hosting for you since how quickly the video streams is important. We’ve recently partnered with an excellent video hosting company who offer discounted rates for our clients. And there, we’ve completed everything all nicely packaged up for you.
