INCREDIBLE WORK!!!!! Indigo’s marketing video for our new app was shown to execs from Apple, Google, Amazon, and other top companies at an invitation-only health care conference at the White House. The entire audience applauded after the screening. It is simply the best marketing tool - with the highest ROI - that I have ever seen. Thank you, Indigo Productions!

Indigo is truly a team; your team. They jumped in with both feet to make something new and exciting happen and delivered exactly what I asked for but went above and beyond in quality, scope & creativity. The head of the company and team is transparent, results-driven and highly effective. So good I almost want to keep it a secret so I have them all to myself! LOL.

Working with Indigo has been fantastic. Indigo brought vision, creativity, flexibility, leadership, and the rare ability to bring our ideas to the screen in the most dynamic way possible. I’m also delighted that they were able to scale up with us as the scope of the project expanded. Two thumbs way up for Indigo!
— Director of Content
Indigo was straightforward, responsive, and ready to collaborate. This was my first time producing a live stream, and Indigo was patient with the multitude of questions - big & small - their response time was unparalleled. When it came to the day, we had an A+ crew from Indigo, and the stream went off without a hitch. Thank you, Indigo!

Explainer Videos Customized For Your Sector
It’s so much easier to get a potential client, investor, or customer on board when your audience “gets it.” Unfortunately, we can’t all be experts in everything. That’s where the perfect explainer video comes in.
Here are some of the projects we’ve done in the past, and how they’ve helped our clients better explain difficult concepts to their audiences.
Your company has created an amazing product. An explainer video is the best way to help them understand your product and illustrate benefits they never considered. Make your audience feel like a part of the process, taking them through your concept, execution, and customer experience.
Create an exciting brand or mission video that helps your audience understand why you and your team get up every day. A mission explainer can create a deeper connection that goes beyond the product, helping you and your team stand out.
Alternative energy. AI training. Database integrations. Sometimes your audience doesn’t care how something works, only that it does. But in specific cases, it’s important that people understand your tech fundamentals. Make a tech explainer video for an investment pitch, conference, or YouTube channel.
Every investment is a risk, and savvy speculators want to know what they are getting into. Before your next fundraising round, an explainer video production can clarify your product, mission, and competitive advantage, while outlining your future vision.
Are you raising awareness or donations for a cause or non-profit? Explaining the importance and impact of your work is critical. When donors understand why their contributions matter, they are encouraged to give more and tell a friend about your organization.
Arm your field team with the content they need to close more deals. Sales explainer videos are excellent leave-behind content that reminds potential clients of your product and helps your reps show rather than tell. A piece of killer content is proven to improve conversion rates.
No matter what type of explainer video you need, our team is standing by to help!

Planning A Great Explainer Video
If you are looking to create an explainer video for your business or product, it’s important to have a well-thought-out script and a strong visual concept. Here’s how we approach producing an explainer video that effectively communicates your message and engages your audience.
Define your goal and target audience. Before you start producing your explainer video, it’s important to clearly define your goal and target audience. This will help you to create a video that is tailored to their needs and interests, and that effectively communicates your message.
Develop a script. Once you have a clear understanding of your goal and target audience, you can start developing a script for your explainer video. This should include a clear and concise explanation of your product or service, as well as any key benefits or features that you want to highlight. It’s also important to include a call to action, such as inviting viewers to learn more or signing up for a free trial.
Create a storyboard. A storyboard is a visual representation of your explainer video, showing the sequence of scenes and the corresponding dialogue or narration. This will help you to plan out your video and ensure that it flows smoothly and logically.
Choose a style and tone. Your explainer video should have a consistent style and tone that matches your brand and resonates with your target audience. This could be fun and playful, serious and informative, or anything in between.
It’s also helpful to have some understanding of the video production process—from planning and scripting to filming, editing, and distribution. It typically involves several stages, including pre-production, production, and post-production.
Pre-production is the planning stage of video production, where the concept, script, and logistics are developed. This typically involves:
- Developing a concept or idea for the video, including the overall message and tone.
- Writing a script, including the dialogue and any voiceover narration.
- Planning the logistics of the shoot, such as location, props, and talent.
- Creating a storyboard
- Assembling a production team, including the director, camera operator, and any other necessary crew members.
Production is the filming stage of video production. This typically involves:
- Setting up the location, props, and equipment for the shoot.
- Filming the scenes and shots according to the script and storyboard.
- Capturing audio, such as dialogue and sound effects.
- Managing any unexpected challenges or issues that may arise during the shoot.
Post-production is the editing and finishing stage of video production. This typically involves:
- Importing the footage and audio into video editing software.
- Editing the footage to create a coherent and engaging video. This may include cutting, trimming, and arranging clips to tell the story you want.
- It also includes color correction, sound mix, and special effects, all the finishing touches to make your explainer video look professional.
Other Video Production Services
Some people hire many different companies to deliver a single video. At Indigo Productions, you get all the services you need under one roof.
Our team handles every aspect of video production. While we can blow your mind with an incredible explainer, there are other things we do:
We create animated graphics and visual effects that are added to the video during the post-production stage. This is used to enhance the visual impact of the video or to create dynamic transitions between scenes.
Would lightsabers be nearly as cool without the iconic sound? Sound design involves creating and editing the audio for a video, including music, sound effects, and dialogue. This is used to create a more immersive and engaging audio experience for the viewer.
You would be amazed at how much work it takes to turn raw footage into the finished product. Editing involves cutting, trimming, and arranging the footage and audio to create a final video. This is a crucial part of the production process, as it determines the pacing, flow, and overall impact of the video.
A bad script often leads to a bad video. That’s why our team has mastered scriptwriting. This service involves writing the script for the video, including the dialogue and any voiceover narration. A well-written script is essential for creating a clear and engaging story and helps ensure that the video communicates its intended message effectively.
Every film is a team effort, but the director is the captain. Direction is overseeing the planning, filming, and post-production stages of the video production process. The director is responsible for ensuring that the video is produced according to the concept and script, and for managing the production team to guarantee that everything runs smoothly.
Footage straight from the camera has lots of detail and information but needs help to make it pop. Color correction involves adjusting the color and contrast of the footage in post-production to create a consistent and aesthetically pleasing look for the video. This can be used to enhance the visual impact of the video and make it more engaging for the viewer.
