Arabic Explainer Videos & Animation Video Production

Arabic Explainer Videos and Animated Video Production

Are you looking for a professional explainer video that conveys your message to an Arabic speaking audience?  Explainer video production companies are easy to find today but if you’re looking for a company that can produce a high quality Animated Arabic explainer video do you really want to trust just any company with a video that needs to touch a Middle Eastern audience?  At IstiZada we are immersed in the marketing world of the Middle East and Arabic is our primary target language. This means when you work with us to create your short video you know it will resonate with Arabs throughout North Africa and the Middle East.


So what’s our process for creating great Arabic videos?



Our process starts with understanding your product or service. We need to get a good grasp of what you’re offering and what the key benefits of that offer are. Additionally we need to spend time researching your target audience to make sure we are going to tailor your video correctly to that audience. Contrary to popular belief not all Arabs are the same, if you are just targeting Egyptians with your product our research process may reveal we need to take a different approach your script than we would if you were targeting the entire Middle East.


Storyboarding & Arabic Script Writing

Based on our research we begin to write your script which is probably the most important step in the whole process. We look at the time we have in the video and determine how we can include the key benefits of your product or service in the most clear and concise way possible. We also try to address one or two of the most common obstacles an Arab audience would have to your product or service. Essential to this process is determining the tone and speed at which the voice over artist should be recording all this to have the biggest impact.


Professional Arabic Voice Over Artist Recording

In the next step we choose and hire a professional voice over artist to record the voice over track for the video. We only use professionals for recording the voice overs and when it makes sense we try to use an artist with the same Arabic dialect as the target audience.


Design & Animation

Depending on the type of video we are doing during this stage we work on the custom design of the characters and scenes we will need for the video. We also look at things like fonts, colors, and backgrounds that are going to get the message across in the best way possible. Our designers will also create several different visual effects that will bring the characters and scenes they design to life.


Video Production

Once the design phase is done we head into the production phase where we bring everything together – characters, scenes, Arabic voice over tracks, sound effects, and the music tracks.  We work with you during this phase to get everything just right and we revise various aspects of the video as needed to make it the most effective it can be. Once the production is done we send you all the files. If your video is going to be used as an advertisement we can work with you to get various placements throughout the Middle East.


Pricing & Timeline

Our professional Arabic explainer videos start at $5000 USD and typically take between 5-8 weeks to create.
