The pleasure was all ours…

We work with everyone, but people feel warm and fuzzy knowing we also work with Australia and the world’s leading brands... not to mention hundreds of startups, small businesses and kickass NFP’s.

Only ever 5-star reviews since 2011.

In a nutshell, we’re problem solvers.

You’d like to use video to help solve your business challenges. We get the business, we get the creative, we get the combination. We create animated videos and content that solves your problems.

Know you need something special but aren’t sure what that special something is?

No dramas. We work on concepts and high quality video strategies on the daily. And here’s the best part… we provide concepts for free. Sometimes all you need is the idea, and idea generation is where we are vikings.

Design and animation is super-fun and all, but we don’t stop there.

Hey, no one’s underestimating the power of amazing creative content. But that content has to go somewhere, it has to do something. The journey doesn’t end when the final render bell dings. We can provide video marketing expertise to give your video content legs in the online world. 💃

Frequently Asked Questions


Working with Explanimate! has been such a great experience for us at Polymathian. We wanted to produce an explainer video to help showcase how we solve complex business problems with Industrial Mathematics. They were excellent at guiding us through the movie making journey and went well above and beyond in terms of delivering a polished product that delivered a great result for us

Louis Okada
Marketing manager, Polymathian

Dave and Travis were fantastic to work with. We came across their work looking for a video to explain a complicated and abstract process (end of year tax workflow) in a simple, but comprehensive style. They built a solid understanding of the process and took feedback well, even when we needed to get across highly technical parts of the product. The end result was something we’re proud to showcase, filled with evergreen content that will last into the future. Looking forward to working with the team again!

At Artifact we have a high bar for how we tell the world about our product and company. We wanted to create a video that told the right story about how valuable Artifact is to our industry. The Explanimate! team took that task seriously and excelled at every step of the process. They worked collaboratively with us on style, narrative, and animation. They shared a critical attention to detail with us, while working within the bounds of timelines and budget. We loved working with the Explanimate! team, and look forward to working with them in the future.

Nate Sanders
CEO & Cofounder, Artifact

We’ve been working with Explanimate! over the past few years on a variety of projects – from animated videos aimed at introducing a change on culture across Gotafe, to external facing advertising work. We are based in Melbourne, and Explanimate! in Brisbane, but they work so closely with us we wouldn’t know the difference. Super talented, super down to earth team that wows us with each new project. We are looking forward to an ongoing relationship and so glad to have found them.

Natalie Ajay
Director Communication and Engagement, GoTafe

I have worked with Explanimate for over 2 years and there is a reason I keep going back. Dave is fantastic to work with really takes the time to understand our needs. Once the Explanimate team gets to work they always find a way to create engaging learning despite the fact that the topics are often quite dry or challenging. However what really sets Explanimate aside is their responsiveness, flexibility and ability to deliver on time and budget, every time. Keep up the great work Explanimate!

Adam Bessell
Learning Program Manager, NBN

I have collaborated with Explanimate! to produce a number of engaging videos for Telstra. Working in an organisation that is currently going through its largest digital transformation to date, explaining new technical concepts to a large variety of audiences in a simple and effective way can be a complex process. Explanimate! has consistently delivered content that can engage and communicate complex concepts effectively. Dave and the team at Explanimate! combine creativity, knowledge and passion to deliver services on time and on budget and most importantly they think outside the box. In addition to this, being nimble has meant that they can continuously manoeuvre and adapt to changes based on the needs of our business. If delivering content that is unique and cost effective is important to you I’d recommend you work with them.

Darya Ahmadi
Marketing Manager, Telstra

My business has been working with Travis and the team for over 5 years on producing high end corporate videos for our clients. They are a great team that work really hard to get what the client wants – they are resourceful and super quick to turn around. My clients are always blown away by the end product.

I highly recommend the Explanimate team. I contacted them when I was in a really tight spot and needed a work project turned around in a hurry. Dave got back to me quickly and immediately talked me through what was possible in the timeframe – the end result was truly exceptional despite the time pressure. Dave couldn’t have been easier to work with – he was highly communicative, kept me updated, provided a really creative solution and stayed within my budget. I would use this team again in a heartbeat!

We engaged Explanimate to create an explainer video for our organisation with a tight timeframe for completion. Working with Dave and his team was a delight. They were very flexible and responsive to our needs, and created a high quality product that has been really well received by staff. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again. Thanks for a professional and friendly experience! :)

Kenneth Cole

The Griffith University marketing team have worked with Dave and the team at Explanimate over the past three years to produce everything from videos communicating complex strategic plans and internal staff marketing pieces to student recruitment videos covering a wide range of study areas and activities. Explanimate are experts at taking our general ideas, breaking them down into simple concepts and turning them into engaging pieces of marketing collateral.

Melanie Carroll

As new customers of Explanimate! we have found the whole process timely and super easy! Truck Assist is a heavy transport insurance and roadside assistance company, therefore, we need to explain fairly complex product offerings in the most simplistic way possible for busy people. Explanimate! Has been the perfect partner to help us create an easy to follow and understand product spec video. The team would also go above and beyond to make sure the final product was exactly where we needed it to be.

Kate Nolan
NTI Limited

At Wyndham we were looking for a new way of creating an engaging video to explain our super complex product. We came across Explanimate! through significant research. The videos they created for us had a strong story line with simple but engaging look and feel. Ost importantly, they are very responsive with a can-do attitude. I’d recommend their service to everyone.

Apivut Chakuthip

Explanimate! have done an amazing job for us. They studied our brief and took the time to fully understand our objectives and project outcomes and offered suggestions on how to improve on our own concept before they began creating.

Juliette Wright
GIVIT CEO & Founder

Explanimate have been really amazing to work with over the last two animation projects. We are always astounded by the quality of their work and they have done it with a smile on their face. Although we are from the west coast of Australia this has not hindered the communication and engagement that we have from the team. Thank you for the great work and I look forward to continuing to create new and engaging pieces together! Highly recommended!

Noelle Ioh

We have been working with Explanimate! for close to one year. We engaged them to help us produce some short animated videos for a number of online training courses. We have been delighted with the quality of work and their ability to visualise technical concepts in a fun and engaging way. Dave and his team are very open to ideas, but also work well with ambiguity. Explanimate! has helped us transform our digital marketing efforts so that we can better reach and engage with our stakeholders. We look forward to continuing to work with Explanimate! in the future and they came with our highest recommendation.

Deborah Stephenson

I have worked with the team from Explanimate! several times in the last few years to produce video media that tells a simple, compelling story without making the viewer feel dumb or threatened. They have a knack for visualising the human emotions experienced by ordinary people living with everyday problems. Clever, clear and compelling. Fun to work with too.

Glen Pacholke

Great quality work, flexible with changes, will be working with them again.

Maher Khaled

The team at Explanimate are fantastic to work with. The work was completed in a very timely manner and the staff were extremely professional. The execution of our vision by the team at Explanimate was awesome. Would happily recommend and use them again.

Madeleine Gardener
University of Queensland

We’ve worked with the team at Explanimate for around two years now, and we’ve found their level of service to be excellent. As we are a not-for-profit in the mental health and disability sector, it’s important to explain our services in a simple, clear, and engaging way. The animation explainer videos, and TVCs, that Explanimate have produced for us have done just that. The team have brought our ideas to life and added their own creative flair, whilst being flexible and fun to work with.

Natalie George
Open Minds

David and the team at Explanimate are fantastic collaborators, creatives and communicators. We’ve worked with them to produce animated explainers about the features and benefits of our new school assessment products. Each time they have nailed the brief, producing videos that consistently inspire “aha!” moments of understanding in prospective customers. We enjoy working with the team and trust them to elevate our communications and let our products shine.

It was a pleasure working with Explanimate on a suite of illustrated animated explainer videos. They turned things around very quickly and were accommodating of our budgets. Good problem solvers, solution oriented and very responsive. Highly recommend!
