Behind The Scenes

Ever wonder how we create our educational videos for toddlers and preschool children?

Located here in New York City and as YouTube Partners, we are able to use the filming studios at the YouTube Next Lab located in the Flat Iron District neighborhood. The photos to the left show us filming two different videos in the studios in front of a green background (referred to as a "green screen"). In the editing room, we are able to delete everything that appears in the color green on the video software and replace it with a different image. In other words, the green background will totally disappear, along with the green fabric draped in front of the actors. This allows us create the many different scenes you see in our videos. An example of our "forest" scene is pictured below.

We create the scenes (like the "forest") by taking individual elements (i.e. a drawing of a tree, the sun, the clouds, the grass) and then combining them all together. Furthermore, our software lets us take some of these individual elements, let's say the sun image, and move it as we see fit. This is called "animation". The ability to move an element with in the scene.

So how long does it take to create a video?

On average to make a 3 to 5 minute long video, it usually takes us 2 to 3 hours to set up the studio to film the actors/puppets. Once we have the footage shot, we will spend another 25 to 35 hours creating the artwork for the video and editing all the materials to create the final product.
