Basically, anywhere you need something explained and can play video.
A: We will have a number of different types of videos which vary in length. This way you can use them at different stages across your engagement process.
The ‘full length videos’ will average between 60-90 seconds. These are great when you need a little more detail to help clients understand broader advice and technical concepts.
Our ‘snapshots’ are shorter in length and capture a single concept only. They are around 20-30 seconds only and are terrific way to follow up with a client after a discussion or to reinforce a new idea or concept.
Hold tight, Snapshots are on their way.
Coming soon we will also have a range of 5-10 second gifs – these are very short animated images which are great to use in your marketing and client communications instead of a still picture.
A: This is a tricky one as all videos in the library are ‘pre-made’ to keep the cost super low. However if there is something you would like and can’t see it in our library, let us know and we can explore the possibilities, including the cost.
A: If you lose the video, you can download it again from the link we sent you to dropbox. If this doesn’t work, we’ll always have a copy here at 3Genies.
A: We do not offer refunds once your animation has been delivered. To avoid disappointment we have made it possible to view each animation in full before purchasing.
If you want to change how your contact details appear we will happily make edits so that you love the final result.
A: This is a tough one to explain briefly, but in short, for our talented team to create the final video, we take the following steps:
- We research topics or categories that advisers need explained.
- A script and animation storyboard is prepared, reviewed and edited by a copywriter.
- The script is given audio by a professional voiceover artist.
- A clever illustrator draws the animations from the storyboard. There are around 3,000 individual drawings for each 60-second video – a lot hey!
- The illustrations are then animated, which means they are made to look like they are moving.
- The audio introduction, ‘catchy’ music and final screen are added.
- Whalla… the animation is ready for viewing, and we add it to our website for you to purchase.
We review each stage throughout this journey and make changes so by the time you get to see it, all the hard yards have been done.
A: Once you purchase the animation, it is yours. However there are some conditions you need to abide by, as outlined in our Terms and Conditions. The main condition being that you aren’t allowed to on sell or re-produce the video in any way shape or form.
