Whiteboard Animation and Politics

Posted by mocapnyc

Animating for Politics

Political animations are unique and complex but you have come to the right place! We have made numerous animations over the years for many organizations.


When it comes to communicating organizational information and policy there are often a lot of stake holders. Multiple approvals also hold up schedules, add to budget, and even kill projects. It is easy to give up hope. But you've come to the experts and we can help you! Here is a list of some of the common problems and how to solve them:

Getting lost in the details

Whether you are filming a political training video or explaining a new process through animation it is easy for a project to get lost in details. So how does one avoid the detail black hole?

Style is the solution

Adding a simple art style to your project cuts out any distractions and details that can drain a budget, allowing only what matters to a viewer to remain on the screen. This not only keeps a project budget from getting drained by details, it also shows the viewer only what they need to see thus making the animation more effective. Here is what we mean:

Animation - Artistically cutting edge AND ready for committees

Animation is a great way to avoid getting bogged down in issues with compliance and we know how political work comes with a lot of regulation. Moreover, animation is newer and cheaper than ever. When it comes to committee revisions and tweeking the project, it requires the lowest cost. A small detail can force a film to be reshot from beginning to end. 

Side note: Infographics and Diagrams - good for concepts

Sometimes a concept is the focus of the message. If an issue affects hundred or thousands of people it’s best to address employees conceptually rather than as specific individuals. In this instance, it’s best to use a style of animation called an infographic. Infographics have been popular since 2000. This style of animation uses plain figures of employees instead of a character. Similarly concepts like timelines, cycles, and fields or areas are often best explained using a diagram that rarely if ever includes an image of the employee.
