Top 5 Tips for Creating 2D Animation Scripts for Your SaaS Product
1. Define Your Message
First and fore most, before you even start writing your script, you have to determine the main message you want to convey to your target audience. If you skip this part of the creation process, you will probably fall into the temptation to cram in many unnecessary details. In the end, you will get a cluttered and distracting video that only confuses users. Instead, be specific about the message the video should convey so that you can prioritize your ideas when drafting thescript.
2. Keep it Concise
Briefly put, animated videos should be long enough to convey your message while being short enough to keep viewers’ attention. For example, explainer videos should be two minutes or less, so that their impact is maximized. Yet, the optimal length for animated videos is considered to be 90 seconds, about 160 to 200 words, of which the first 7 seconds are key for attracting your audience and making them watch your entire video. So, don’t dump a bunch of information, but be clearand concise. Scholarcy did a great job on their script!
