Create Animated Videos Quickly

The Little Design Lab videoscribe

As I was browsing YouTube I became captivated by a video combining story-telling with animated hand drawing. The video was created as a VideoScribe by Sparkol. Having researched the idea a bit further I decided I would give it a try. So, here it is! My first videoscribe created in just a few hours. It might inspire you to try using video for your own blog and business. VideoScribe app review to come in my next blog post!

      1. Heather, I so love what you have done, so I tried to install the app on my Mac….and it just doesn’t work. That’s so disappointing, because I think it’d be so much fun to design one. Maybe I’ll try again in a few days.
        Have a good one!

  1. Loved this. I actually just started playing with VideoScribe last week. I think it is a real attention keeper. About how long did it take you to create the above video do you think? This also could be an added service to what you are doing. Your clients might pay a premium price for something like this.

    1. Thanks for your feedback Jonathan. Having already had the graphics and a basic idea of what I wanted to achieve before I started, I would say I spent a couple of hours making the videoscribe. I then setup a YouTube Channel and it took 5 minutes to upload. Yes, I was thinking I could add this as an additional service. I could easily apply the artwork from a clients brand to this format and even merge it with video from a camera. A great marketing tool for sure.

  2. Oh Heather – this is so cool!!! I need to make a presentation to my non-profit soon and I think I’d like to use this. Thanks!

    1. Thanks for your kind comments Claire. There are some examples of illustrators using videoscribe with clever ways of executing their ideas. I like the idea of taking a line drawing from a book and bringing it to life.

    1. This would be a great way of combining your artistic talents Susan. You definitely have an advantage if you are tech savvy. You are already telling stories with your videos so I think you would enjoy using videoscribe. Thanks for your comments!
