What are the benefits of animated videos?
Great content marketing is all about telling a story. But the story is only as good as the execution.
Viewers retain 95% of a message when they watch it in a video compared to 10% when reading it in text.
Animated videos turn even the most complex ideas into easy-to-digest entertainment pieces for your ideal audience.
Whether you're explaining a new app, promoting a new initiative or service, or need animated idents for your new podcast, animation can help you visually bring your message to life in the right tone, without creative limitations.
Why should I work with an animation studio?
A professional animation studio like Skeleton should not only have multiple highly experienced animators invested in your video production, but strategists, producers and marketing experts under their belt, too.
Skeleton can give you all the services you need — from strategising, scripting, storyboarding, casting voice-over artists, and making sure your video gets seen by the right people through marketing. It's the full package.
What kinds of animations can you do?
We make all kinds of animations for all sorts of businesses, brands, and organisations. We've got experts in character animation, 2D, and 3D. Animated explainer videos, promotional videos, training videos, recruitment videos, TV adverts, corporate videos, idents, and social adverts. We do it all.
How much does an animated video cost to produce?
How much you'll spend is dependent on the skills needed, the type of production and the time involved to create it, but the investment for explainer video production typically starts from £10,000. Request a quote and we can have a chat about what's possible with your budget.
What does an animation studio need from me?
To begin producing your animated video, we'll need you to be clear about your objectives and who your audience is.
We have a saying at Skeleton that we’re not just about making videos that just look good. We create videos that gain real results because they're driven by real insights.
But don't worry, if you've not done that strategic thinking yet, we can help you look at your objectives, goals and audience and support you on this journey.
We manage projects where clients have had no video experience, all the way through to those very familiar with the medium and what’s involved.

Will I have input on the edit?
Yes, from storyboards to animation and scripting, we always work closely with you to ensure you’re happy with the direction of your animated video project.
What makes a great animated video?
A great animated video tells a story and has a clear call to action. They should be short, punchy, eye-catching, engaging, and fun.
