Video Production for Tyson

 

Tyson Foods has donated 100 million pounds of food since the year 2000. Still, one in seven Americans suffers from hunger. Tyson reached out to Explainify to design an explainer video getting their message across. Explainify made an entertaining cartoon graphic illustrating comparisons for what 100 million pounds of food looks like, while still emphasizing the seriousness of the hunger issue and how Tyson is helping to

solve it. 

Video Production for GE

 

With expanding economic and population growth, Egyptians are moving away from cities and power grids. General Electric is partnering with the Egyptian Government to bring power to an additional 2.5 million homes. They hired Explainify to create a powerful video to explain this cause. The music emphasizes the magnitude of the impact and illustrations show the multitude of ways this electricity will help the lives of

millions of people.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

My company is a 2 year old Software as a Service company with one vision - to connect the world via the internet, the single most important communications invention in history.

We focus on religious and non-profit organizations in offering inexpensive ways to manage their relationships with their constituents and those they wish to introduce into their organization. I am the founder and lead innovator of the company.

With over 20 years of experience in the software development world, I can bring to my company the necessary knowledge, leadership and direction to provide our customers with the perfect solution.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Explainify?

We needed an explainer video for our primary offering. I presented the platform to a missionary once at a local church and tried to explain how it worked. His first question to me was if we had an explainer video he could show to others. At the time, we did not and I knew I had to invent one.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was very straight-forward. We needed a video that would explain the platform in simple terms and in a way that motivated clients to take the next step.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We explored many video providers and interviewed several of them. In the end, Explainify did the best, hands down, at understand our need and really seeing the vision. At that point, the selection was a no-brainer.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

The video is a 60 second scripted explainer video created to cast the vision of our platform. The process was clearly laid out from the beginning from script writing to talent selection to production to final product. Explainify exhibited very professional communication, stayed on task and on schedule and a great end product

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

After the completion of each step, the project manager would email details and provide for two rounds of feedback and modification. The project manager was always quick in responding and was freely available on the phone if we needed to chat over any aspect of the project.

The project manager defined the production schedule and then did a great job to get to the final solution on time and within budget.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The video has been placed as the primary focus of our marketing strategy as a lead generator. We have full expectation that it will boost our visibility in the crowded market of online relationship management solutions and provide an advantage over others.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Our communication was very effective. No sleep was lost worrying over if deadlines were going to be met or if the project was going to fail. Quite the contrary, actually. We had full confidence in the ability of Explainify and never had any concerns.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Explainify's work was of the best quality. What won the contract to develop the video, was their vested interest in the success of the project's outcome. They committed fully and truly got to know our company, our product and our customer in such a way as to deliver the best possible product.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the founder and CEO at Testimonial Hero. We help B2B marketers to create professional video testimonials through increased social proof and customer storytelling.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Explainify?

We hired Explainify to create an explainer video to succinctly introduce prospects to who we are and what we do.

What were your goals for this project?

The style needed to be sophisticated, not overly cartoony or cheesy. I wanted the video and animations to have a premium feel and top-notch, concise storytelling. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I've heard a lot about Explainify. As far as I was concerned, they were the leader in this space, and I always like to work with the best whenever possible. As a result, I reached out to them to do this project.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

The project started with discovery. Explainify had a thorough discovery process with an intake form and a call with their team. After that, they wrote a first draft of the script. Scripting was a collaborative process where I also helped. After the script, we moved onto the storyboarding, which they handled completely. After we approved all storyboarding, they sourced the voiceover artist. Finally, Explainify animated everything.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

There were several rounds of feedback, and the process was very efficient. I felt like they quickly addressed my feedback, and they always kept me updated. I never had to wonder when I was going to get the next draft of something—they always kept me in the loop.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We've just completed the video, but we're already using it and feedback has been very positive. It’s already becoming an invaluable part of our B2B sales process.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Their project management was very effective! Kelsey (Production Manager & Lead Project Manager, Explainify) and Randi (Project Manager, Explainify) were great to work with. They stayed on top of tasks and kept me updated on timelines.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The quality of the final video was outstanding. I'm really happy with the result, the service, and our overall client experience. I know when I recommend Explainify, Kelsey and Randi will take great care of the client, and their experience will be as amazing as it was for us.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The fact that the intake form was a Google form made it a little long and inconvenient to write in and work on over multiple sessions. I would have preferred a Google Doc where we can easily pause and resume without losing work. A Google Doc would have also been slightly better for collaboration than the form, especially if there were other stakeholders on my team.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted simple and engaging videos that explained complicated genetic concepts to patients in easily understandable ways.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

After going through a required, competitive bidding process, we felt that, while Explainify wasn’t the cheapest vendor, the quality of their work and our interaction with the team was justification enough to work with them.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

We created four videos with their team. There were a variety of topics including, Cancer Genetics 101, what families need to know about genetic testing, information about the program, and family communication.

We worked in sprints, receiving regular feedback from Explainify. Before starting a new video, we had a project kick-off to make sure everyone understood the topic and look and feel we were going for. Their team was communicative, asking great questions and making excellent suggestions.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the director of communications at Carney, Sandoe & Associates, an educational recruitment firm that places teachers and administrators in jobs at schools across the US and abroad.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Explainify?

We hired Explainify to create two videos; one for our job-seeker audience and one for our hiring audience. Short clips were also made from the full-length videos.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to create fun, captivating, and brief videos to capture what is sometimes a confusing idea of how we help schools and job seekers. Our services are unique and deep, so it was important that we present what we do succinctly and in a way that appeals to both our audiences.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I found Explainify through an online search and had an initial call with them to discuss our needs. They submitted a proposal, which we reviewed internally. We also did reference calls with two of their clients.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

Once we began the process, the expectations were very clear. Explainify laid out all the steps of what we would need to accomplish at each milestone. They had a clear timeline and told us what we should expect in terms of feedback and edits. We had two rounds of edits per stage, which worked out great. We didn't feel like we needed more because the team really understood what we wanted. The process was seamless.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

We had two Explainify representatives who worked with us and explained each step of the process in terms of what we were seeing from them (e.g. wireframes, style and color, text). They gave us a deadline for feedback and a template to use, so it was easy to tell them what we wanted to change. They were always on time and their responses to our questions were thoughtful. All in all, it was a wonderful process.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The videos get great feedback on social media and on our website. Employees like to use the videos to explain our process to potential job-seekers or schools. They have been useful in efficiently communicating our value.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Our two representatives were incredible in terms of project management. I can't recall the last time I worked with a vendor that stuck to deadlines, checked-in frequently, and worked to produce a final product so efficiently.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Project management was definitely a big strength. From the timeline and the feedback templates to knowing exactly what to expect from them, it was really a great experience.

They really cared about giving us a final product that we were happy with. When the voice-over actor couldn't get the pronunciation of our company name correct, they made sure that we had different samples of pronunciations to listen to until we got it right.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I honestly can't think of any.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the VP of marketing at Apartment Life. We help apartment owners care for residents by connecting them in relationships. This, in turn, helps improve the community's financial performance through online reputation, resident satisfaction, and resident retention.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Explainify?

We hired them for two projects: an industry explainer video for our website homepage and a recruiting explainer video that we use to recruit volunteers/staff.

What were your goals for this project?

For the industry video, we wanted to explain who we are to our industry clients so that they would hire us. For the recruiting video, we wanted to explain how the program works to prospective volunteers so that they would apply to serve with us. Our program can be a bit difficult to explain, so this video helped us do that well in just 90 seconds.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We interviewed three vendors and felt that Explainify had the most business expertise, as well as the best project structure. They sounded very organized, and it seemed that they could take us step by step through the process. This was useful because I had worked on many videos over the years, but never on something that was fully animated.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

Randi (Project Manager, Explainify) and Kelsey (Production Manager & Lead Project Manager, Explainify) made the entire process so easy. They gave very specific instructions of what we needed to provide, what our deadlines were, and when we would move to the next step in the process. 

The Explainify team did 90% of the work, helping write the script, assisting with the design, and more. All we had to do was provide feedback and suggest minor tweaks to fully embrace our brand personality. We finished both videos ahead of schedule.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

They were very specific about feedback loops, providing specific forms so that our feedback was structured in the exact way that they needed it. We typically had 1–2 days to provide feedback, and they would give me advance notice of when we could expect our next round of proofs. This helped me schedule time in my calendar to review their work and plan around our team's schedule.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We have used their videos on our website homepage, social media, and events.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They beat every deadline and finished our projects ahead of schedule.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The team was so easy to work with—they were incredibly organized, fun, and great listeners. They really understood the essence of our brand. Like I said before, I was so pleased with the first video, that we signed up to do a second with them, and that process was equally as good.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, none come to mind.
