Do you remember that wonderful feeling when you first watched a whiteboard animation video and thought, “Wow, who thought that up?”
Whiteboard animation starts with a blank whiteboard – and lets you tell your story with original images and a captivating voiceover. It’s a highly contemporary medium that has revolutionised communication for companies and individuals across the world.
Call it a video scribe, hand drawn video or whiteboard animation but either way, the effect is magical. You’ll find the origins of whiteboard animation in the caves of prehistoric man. For over 40,000 years man has drawn pictures to tell a story. Later they added words. Today, however, you don’t need to go to a cave, video technology and the Internet has taken care of that!
We owe a big round of thanks to Sir Ken Robinson and Cognitive Media. They took a part of his speech about schools killing creativity and played it over a person drawing pictures on a whiteboard. Posted online under the name RSA Animate, the video had half a million views in the first week!
People’s imagination was ignited worldwide. Whiteboard animation video quickly became recognised as the number one video format for communicating a message. Where once we drew pictures on the cave wall for our descendants to see, now we have the whole world just a few clicks and shares away. Whiteboard animation videos, changing the way you deliver your message.
