Step 2: Story

The story for your video will be based on the rough ideas of the concept. Once the story is written, illustrations or images are made for the storyboard. The storyboard is the key instrument for the video production.

Step 3: Production

The video production follows the storyboard. After a prototype, the video is established, usually in various phases. The video production is dedicated to the creation of compelling visual content.

Now that your video is ready, it can be used for various marketing channels, for your events and as content material to be re-used in full-length or in parts of it.
