Or, do you find it hard to retain all of the unstoppable information that the internet gladly and offers to you?

That’s where videographic steps in to make your life much more comfortable.

Videographic has now become one of the most worth considering types of videos that businesses use.

The allure of videographic is quite simple: in this era where the internet is flooded with tons of information, seeing a video that provides concise information in such an elegant, natural way gives meaningful information.

This article will take you in a quick walkthrough of videographic– from the basic definition to must-see examples.

Let’s geek out, shall we?

What is a Videographic?

Since videographic is a “marriage” of graphic design, motion animation, and sound, it makes sense that the name “motion graphic” is much more used.

However, videographic is effectively used for telling the story by borrowing the concept of videography, illustration, and typography to create a visually rich composition so the viewers can digest the message quickly.

The message in videographics can be delivered in some animation styles, like kinetic text, animated images, or both. And it can be in 2D or 3D animation. Since the latter is too tedious when done manually, you can apply the skills you learned after taking a Python online course to automate the process.

This highly-engaging type of video is a must-use for businesses that have a techy explanation for their brand and want to convey crucial information without making its customers overwhelmed.

Simply put, videographic is a potent marketing tool that can easily engage and appeal to audiences of all ages- from younger to older crowds by offering crucial, statistical information simply and straightforwardly.

How Is It Made?

Many elements go into videographic production, from scripting and audio to design and animation.

One thing you should be mindful of is that you have to make sure to deliver crucial information as concisely as possible, without abandoning the core message.

To help you out, here are some handy steps to create a stunning videographic:

  • Write a powerful script that tells a story. First thing first, you need to start with an idea through a compelling story to deliver your message. Here, simplicity and clarity are essential.
  • Storyboarding. After deciding what your videographic is all about, the next step is to put it all together in a storyboard. This is where the script and visuals and start to see the final product take shape.
  • Take the storyboard into designing. The next step is translating your storyboards into actual designs. In this step, you need to get the details right, from the style to color.
  • Bring design to life with animation. The last step is bringing everything together. You need to make sure that animation style, music, timing, are all well-balanced.

If you’ve done an excellent job and gotten sign-off on each step, you’ll undoubtedly have a compelling videographic you’re proud of.
