Why Animation?

Animation is cost effective to produce. There’s no on-location shoots or crew to manage. Every pixel has a purpose, and animation is easy to update or remix into an infographic or new language.

Animation is universal and engages you on a personal level. As Scott Adams – the Dilbert cartoonist says, “with talking head videos, the story is about them but with animation, the story is about YOU!”

Animation is more effective. In a UK study comparing animation to a ‘talking head video’, participants found the animation 33% more entertaining, were 66% more likely to share, and reported a 15% increase in retention of factual information. (Professor Richard Wiseman, 2012).

Animation makes you smarter. It’s the perfect way to make complex subjects engaging, simple, and easy to understand while increasing attention and memory. In a New Zealand study of the the most effective methods for consuming information, animation wins, by engaging three different learning modes simultaneously in the brain. (Lincoln University).

They included us through the process, and helped to spark some great ideas – for example, ways we could get input from our member community.” ~Internet NZ
