Description

If you are looking to learn how to make your own Whiteboard Animations, rather than pay someone else to do it, you've come to the right place! These videos are great for advertising and getting your message across, no matter what it is. You can have little to no video production or design knowledge to get started making Whiteboard Animations. These videos are great for small businesses, startups, and even teachers.

The goal is to learn the basics of how to use VideoScribe, advanced techniques within the program, and finally to approach the designing of whiteboard animations with a more artistic eye.

Who is the target audience?
  • For Beginner & Intermediate Level Aspiring Video Producers
  • Not for Advanced Level Video Animators/Designers

Intro to VideoScribe
4 Lectures 04:10

VideoScribe is Whiteboard animation software created & run by Sparkol. They offer a 7 Day Free Trial & various subscription options like monthly subs, yearly subs, or a one time payment if you wanted to own a copy of the program for lifetime use. They also offer Education Licenses, and multi-user discounts for businesses. If this is your first time starting out, I highly suggest the 7 day free trial to get an idea of what the program is all about. After that, if you want to continue using VideoScribe, you can choose the subscription that is best for you.
