Can not recommend Onepost enough! The team got back to my initial query straight away and took the time to understand what I was after. The first concepts were through to me in days and they were bang on brief with consent communication on where the project was at! The effort to get the final version exactly how I wanted was so greatly appreciated. I love the final version and can’t wait to share it. THANK YOU!

Types of Animated Videos
Animated Explainer Video
Our most popular service. Onepost creates engaging explainer videos to explain people’s services and solutions. An animation is fun and simple and there’s a few different styles to choose from.
Animated explainer videos have the ability to connect a brand/business with their target audience in a way that other marketing forms can’t. They cross barriers of engaging by making complicated concepts easier to understand. They communicate in a way that’s approachable, and enhance your marketing strategy that’s easily-digestible and even easier to share.
Video that Converts
An animated explainer video that sits on the top of you website’s home page can dramatically reduce your bounce rate – increasing the time your website visitors stick around – Something that Google is VERY concerned about. They factor this in when ranking websites. All of this adds up to more eyes on your brand, more exposure via Google and more opportunities to convert.
Using your brand colours throughout your animated explainer video will help your target audience connect your brand with what they’re watching, building trust and recognition outside the realm of the video.
Another very popular option for companies wanting to explain a complicated product or service in a very easy to understand method. The style is a basic drawing style of black and white illustrations on a whiteboard.
What is a whiteboard video animation?
Great for taking your audience on an educational journey – Whiteboard animation the simplest and most affordable way to convey a simple or complicate message in a super effective way. When a viewer gets to the end of a well-made whiteboard animated video, there should be absolutely no confusion as to what the end message was. Clear messaging equals better memorability. And better memorability equals better conversion.
Fun & engaging
The very act of a hand sketching a concept in front of the viewer is far more engaging than most styles of animation or video production because it almost draws the viewer in as another character in the video. The more engaging the video the more likely it will be shared with other people, and the more likely conversions will climb too.
Because whiteboard video is all software based, it makes it much cheaper for us to produce than other animation styles. Also because of this, we can make changes easily to your video further down the track.
We have produced a ton of explainer videos from start-ups to mega brands. Have a look at our examples and get in touch with us.
Infographic / Typography
This style is a fantastic way to get your message across in a way that creates a buzz using illustrated graphics and/or typographic fonts.
Animated Promo Videos
Animated promo marketing is a great strategy used by companies and brands all over the world to communicate their core message to their potential and existing customers to easily drive higher lead generations. There a few different styles you can choose from. It can be as simple or advanced as you like that works with your budget.
What are they good for?
Online video marketing. A good 30sec animated promo video can easily be deployed across Youtube, Facebook, in-stream channels. They are easily produced and can be turned around fast. You can advertise your brand through these channels or you can have it site on your website’s landing page to help convert your web visitors. It’s usually a good idea to talk to us about not just getting a one off animated promo video, but a range of visual content that can back up your advertising strategy. For example: We could produce for you 1x animated promo video but also produce A set of animated web banners that can follow your visitors around the web, re-marketing to them. A set of social media images – graphics that use the same imagery as the video that can drive home the message through your social media channels that creates more engagement. 6sec Cut-down bumper ads for your Youtube adverting. These are great because people can’t skip them during their Youtube exploring. Also good for re-marketing to drive awareness.
Banner advertising’s as important as it’s ever been. They are great at converting leads into customers and are awesome at spreading awareness using Google adwords. With animated web banners now taking off online, you are crazy not to take advantage of their power. We can design and animate a web banner campaign that supports your video campaign or other campaigns to boost your click-through rate and create more customers.
Interactive Banner Ads
If you have a budget, Rich media banners are a better choice because they usually deliver better click-through rate than static banners. There’s a huge range of options we can do when it comes to banners. Talk to us about your goals and we can come up with ideas to help you convert leads into customers.
Our Process is Unique and Simple
First up, we chat about what you want and if we can do it (spoiler alert: we can). Next, we partner you with an awesome copywriter who’ll get started on your script and an account manager who’ll make sure everything runs smoothly.
Depending on the scale of your project, scripting usually takes 3-5 days. Your copywriter will develop a script that ticks all your boxes and liaise with you directly until you’re happy with the story they’ve created.
Before we get cracking on illustration, we give you a ‘sneak peek’ so you can tell us what you like and what you don’t. Concept design usually takes 1-2 days and we use this time to make sure we nail the look and feel you’re going for before we get started on the real thing.
A storyboard is an animated video from beginning to end, just on paper. It usually takes about a week to pull your storyboard together. When you’ve approved it, there’s no surprises when we get to animation.
Most animated videos need a professional voiceover, and some need music to be produced especially. Sound a bit scary? Don’t worry: we handle it all.
Now’s the fun part! Our animators work their magic to turn your paper storyboard into a walking and talking animated video. You’ll receive regular updates along the way plus low-res MP4 video files that you can watch to provide feedback and approve the video. In most cases this takes about a week to complete.
Commonly asked questions on our animated video service
How much does an animated video cost?
This all depends on what you want to achieve out of your project, what sort of budget you have and the style of the video. Once we have a few questions answered, we can then put a proposal together that will have a few pricing options. This way you will be able to see the difference between a cost-effective project and one with all the bells and whistles.
It’s super important when submitting a quote with us that you add in a link or two to videos that have the same style you are wanting. This speeds up the process.
Is it more cost-effective to get more than one video produced at the same time?
Yes! It absolutely is. Often, once we have created all the assets for one video, it’s then easy to reuse them for others and think of it this way – It’s easier for a voice over artist to record all the videos in one session than being pulled back to a studio for each one.
If you have a project that requires multiple animated videos, we will produce a quote showing you the difference of what one video costs and what, say, five videos will cost. The difference can save you thousands.
What's the process with animated explainers?
Please see above the questions for a detailed answer on this. We would also be happy to talk through everything on the phone with you and can send you a process specific to your project, including timings.
