The Friday Round-Up (from The Lion King to RSA Animation)

Claude Harrington 12.11.2015

If for some reason your alarm failed to go off on Monday morning, and you accidentally slept through this entire week, then here’s a round-up of some things you might have missed:


Monday: Einstein’s General Relativity (Explainer Video)

Tuesday: 4 Tips for When you Start Writing an Explainer Script

Wednesday: PICK OF THE WEEK: How Facebook is Stealing Views (an explainer video)

ICYMI: Which Video Sharing Service is Right For Me: YouTube (Part 1 of 2)

ICYMI: Which Video Sharing Service is Right For Me: Vimeo (Part 2 of 2)


FROM THE VAULT: How Should I Judge an Animation Studio’s Platform?

“If you’re looking for an animation studio for an explainer or training video, it’s a smart move to shop around. In fact, at IdeaRocket, we actively encourage prospects to check out the competition to see how we stack up. Of course, most prospects probably aren’t rsa animation experts (after all, that’s why they’re coming to us). Like an amateur oenophile (relax, that means wine-lover), you can probably tell good product from bad, but don’t yet have the nuanced palette to appreciate the fine differences between good and great vintages.”
