How the Explainer Engine works

It all begins with your topic. What do you want to explain? Is it a change process, your company values, or how your product works?

Creating videos that resonate isn’t just about throwing information together. It includes thinking strategically about your audience, keeping things simple but impactful, and picking visuals that make people understand the topic.

The Explainer Engine does the work for you, although you still have the option to customize the number of keywords. This precise selection ensures that the key messages are clearly highlighted and the message is effectively conveyed.
Images that support your story
