Animated Explainer Videos

Motion graphics and animated explainer videos allows you to go beyond the scope of live-action filming to tell stories, share concepts, visualise complex structures and communicate ideas. Animation engages and educates and can support your video content by highlighting key messages and important information.

Bespoke motion graphics, whiteboard animations & explainer videos

Slate and Mortar has been producing 2D and 3D animation films since the company’s inception, creating bespoke motion graphics and animated explainer videos that are tailor-made for a range of sectors, including; education, communications, engineering, technology, healthcare and fundraising. We have a team of designers and character animators on-staff who strive to produce beautiful, creative visuals that provoke and engage.

We know how to best utilize motion graphics for your messaging and understand that one style doesn’t necessarily fit all. Working across a range of creative approaches and formats; whether it’s simple whiteboard explainer videos or 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 policy or processes, share the latest practise or even keep stakeholders abreast of complex findings, animation is the perfect tool.

Animation can significantly lessen the complexities of production, with a reduced need for outside contributors and the various logistical challenges that can come from a live action shoot. It can be a very cost-effective approach too, as the majority of the production is done in-house, meaning budget can primarily be allocated towards the actual design and development of the film, meaning you get the most ‘bang for your buck’.

We understand that the idea of animation production might be a little intimidating, but it doesn’t need to be like that. From the initial script-writing stage, all the way through to the final deliverables, we ensure that the processes are clear and that you are fully supported by our production team, making sure the final animation is delivered exactly as promised.
