Our Process

The process of creating a kurzgesagt video consists of 6 steps: Script, Design & Storyboard, Narration, Animation, Music & Sound Design, Output. Sounds complicated? Don’t worry, we will guide you through the process step by step.

  • Script

    You give us your input and objectives and we develop a script in the kurzgesagt style: informative, witty, accessible. If you already have developed a script, we can help you optimize it if necessary.

  • Design & Storyboard

    We carefully illustrate your script in close cooperation with you. A mood board shows you our first sketches. Two feedback-loops for changes on the storyboard will make sure that you will get exactly what you envisioned.

  • Narration

    We work with professional Voice Artists all over the world. Just tell us which language, dialect, gender or style of narration you need and we will find the perfect narrator for you.

  • Animation

    The animation brings the illustration to life and turns it into a complete video. From simple objects moving on the screen to fully animated human characters we are able to do anything you might need.

  • Music & Sounddesign

    After the animation is finished, we compose music and create SFX perfectly tailored for the video. We can’t underline enough what a big difference great sound design and music make for the emotional impact of a video.

  • Output

    Finally we deliver you the video in any format, codec, aspect ratio, with or without subtitles.
