Animated Explainer Video for the Milestones Clinic Website
Established in 2004 Milestones deliver a comprehensive and specialist neurorehabilitation service by professionals who have the right set of skills to address the complex needs of people who have a need for neurological rehabilitation.
In response to a need from their clients, Milestones Clinic developed a service using remote video technology to provide ‘Blended Community and Clinic Support’, allowing expertise from the clinic to join clients in their own setting at a time that suits the them. In order to explain the service, AllDesignOnline were approached to design, storyboard and produce the animated explainer video below.
AllDesignOnline have a long established working relationship with Milestones Clinic, having produced websites, printed and promotional material over the years. This means we already have a good understanding Milestones Clinics services so when Milestones Clinic explained the new ‘Blended Community and Clinic Support’ service and asked how it could be presented, we suggested an animated explainer video would the logical choice.
Video is an excellent and engaging way of presenting content on a website, enabling you to present what would be complex or lengthy written information or concepts quickly whilst retaining the viewers interest.
The first step was to storyboard the whole video which has three purposes. 1) To define the content being presented and to ensure all the points are captured. 2) To understand how the concepts will be visually represented and 3) Act as a voiceover script to accompany the onscreen information.
Working with Milestones Clinic, the storyboard was edited down and refined which was then used to produce a pilot animation with all of the key elements animated and a temporary digital voiceover used. Although a storyboard is a vital element, producing a pilot animation gives a real sense of whether the written storyboard translates into animation and portrays the points you’d like to get across accurately. Reviewing the pilot with Milestones Clinic, some adjustments were made to the content in order to ensure the video remained under 3 minutes long.
With the adjustments implemented, the animation went to final production with all of the transitions, props and expressions put in place. It was also decided that rather than using a professional voice over artist, Sally, owner of Milestones Clinic would narrate the video to add authenticity to the video. The finished video can be seen on this page or by visiting the Milestones Clinic website below.
