Using Videoscribe for business
Posted on July 12, 2018
Hi, I’m Russ: a cartoonist, illustrator and animator, who used to make a few flash intros and animations for websites. I did this in addition to designing websites, but my heart was really in cartooning, illustrating and animating.
Luckily a few years ago I discovered a fantastic program that we powerful, easy to use and completely changed the way I work.
Jump to 2018 and I run a successful business creating explainer videos in the form of whiteboard animations using a program called videoscribe. The program suited my simple drawing style, and as I was never great with colour the black and white format with colour spots seemed like the perfect fit for my work.
I think the main thing that sets me apart from my competitors is my unique drawing style, and this is why large companies like OFCOM, Monster Jobs and various charities have chosen my work to represent their company.
So Videoscribe is full of ready to use drawings, but I think it is important to create videos that are as unique as possible and really stand out. That way they deliver the strongest message.
Adobe Illustrator has been my main go to drawing app for years. I use my phone to quickly capture any sketched ideas I have and import them into Adobe Illustrator. The multiple artboard feature is one of the things that made using it so perfect for creating whiteboard animations.
I would create a storyboard using multiple artboards and I output them as a PDF which my clients can preview on just about any device.
These days I have a slightly more complex work process that takes advantage of the full adobe suite, and also a more traditional animation program by toonboom. The toonboom software allows me to create more complex animation sequences which I can then blend into the original videoscribe.
Videoscribe is easy to use and doesn’t require an animation degree to use it, or to get great results. The other good news is that videoscribe has improved steadily over the years and is now easier to use than ever before.
