Explainer animations have seen a massive surge in digital marketing strategy and with good reason. In simple terms, explainer videos are short online marketing videos used to explain your company’s product or service. Explainer videos are often placed on a landing page, your website’s home page, or a prominent product page. They make a complex idea simple, they make a message engaging and they help to show that you really understand the challenges your customer faces. From 2D icon animations to more stylised graphics, Gnu Films specialises in really helping your customer have that ‘oh! I get it!!’ moment.

Often it uses metaphors or shows an example of how it could work rather than literal demonstrations.
