Creating an explainer video for Gotour Danmark

Gotour Danmark

Challenge

In connection with the Website Redesign that I made for Gotour Danmark, the company needed additional ways of attracting business partners. Due to the complex business model the company is working with, they needed an easy way to explain the benefits of their services to other business providers. 

User research

It took quite some time to understand how the company works and what exactly do they offer its partners. As soon as I had no more questions to the host, I started researching. I looked into Danish tourism, how danish tourists start their trip and most importantly: where they gain inspiration from.

With my research, I found out that around 97% of Danish population have been using the internet since 2017, and around 90% of people do all their holiday research online. 

It seemed to be essential to point out, how important online presence is for service providers all around Denmark. 

Storyboard

Afterwards, I started sketching and coming up with possible presentations of the animation idea. It was important, to find a way to present Gotour’s business model as understandable as possible. 

Once I had sketches for individual scenes, I created a storyboard by writing a script and pairing it with each screens. I also added further details that imitate and animation. It helped me and the host understand what would happen on each screen.

Animatic

When the storyboard was approved, I moved on to create a very simple animatic out of the material I have drawn and the narration that was recorded for the project. 

The animatic helped me nail down the timing of the scene changes and find out how long each screen should be shown, to fit the script. Discussing the style and speed was also easier with teammates, which is why I believe it was worth the time spent on it.

Visual Presentation of the Explainer Video

The video uses the main colors that are present in Gotour Danmark’s logo. The color choices aim to be consistent with the brand’s identity and further fit better into the website design of the company. 

As for the typography, Maven Pro Bold was chosen for headings and Lato Regular for body text. Both font choices have good legibility which is essential. Especially in cases, when e.g. the user watches the video on a small screen such as a phone.
