Animation production, motion graphics, and animated explainer videos offer a versatile way to convey complex ideas, share concepts, and tell stories. Animation engages, educates, and is ideal for highlighting key messages and important information in video content. It offers flexibility and can communicate ideas beyond the limitations of live-action filming.
Bespoke motion graphics, whiteboard animations & explainer videos
Slate and Mortar has been producing high-quality 2D and 3D animation films since its inception. We create bespoke motion graphics and animated explainer videos that are tailor-made for a range of sectors, including education, communications, engineering, technology, healthcare, and fundraising. Our team of designers and character animators strive to produce beautiful, creative visuals that engage and provoke thought.
We understand that different styles of animation work best for different types of messaging. We work across a range of creative approaches and formats, from simple whiteboard explainer videos to bespoke character animation, right through to the creation of complex 3D landscapes and models. Our producers work with you to develop a creative concept that will engage your audience, communicate complex ideas and appeal directly to specific demographics.
If you need to liven up your health and safety materials, promote policies or processes, share the latest practices or even keep stakeholders abreast of complex findings, animation is the perfect tool. With the ability to significantly lessen the complexities of production, animation can be a very cost-effective approach, as the majority of the production is done in-house, meaning the budget can primarily be allocated towards the actual design and development of the film.
At Slate and Mortar, we understand that the idea of animation production might be a little intimidating, but it doesn’t need to be. We make the process as straightforward as possible, from the initial script-writing stage, all the way through to the final deliverables. Our production team ensures that the processes are clear and that you are fully supported throughout, making sure the final animation is delivered exactly as promised.
An animated explainer video can be an effective tool for educating, informing, and entertaining your audience. It can convey complex ideas and concepts in a simple and visually appealing way, making it easier for your audience to understand and remember your message. Our team of experts can help you to create an animated explainer video that delivers your message in an engaging and creative way, leaving a lasting impression on your audience.
