Recommendations for an online Video Animator who won't break the bank?

This is for a product explainer video, similar in nature tohttps://www.groovehq.com/

Script is about 1min and 30 seconds long.
Our budget is $1000-$3000.

We are looking for an animator who can storyboard, create the assets, and perform voice-over (and whatever else it takes to make a clean, professional grade video.)

Thank you so much for your recommendations!

You can contact me directly if you'd like. I own a full video production company and infographic animations are one of the services we offer. In fact I'm just finishing one now for another company. We used to do all the animations for Good Eats with Alton Brown on the Food Network.

PM me if you'd like to reach out to me. Happy to help. We're located in Atlanta.

Try Powtoon. It has a basic animation app that has a limited set of characters, actions, effects, etc that are basically drag n drop. There are also Powtoon consultants who use the professional version to produce customized animations. Pretty cool.

Hey there, whom did you find? Would love referrals.. We are looking for similar, but near the lower end of the budget spectrum if possible. J

I highly recommend VideoJeeves.com.  They produced a wonderful 3 minute animated product explanation for $1400.  I provided the script and was specific about what I wanted, but they design the whole thing if you'd like.  They give a choice of several different styles (whiteboard, motion graphics, cutout video, etc) and a choice of many voiceover actors.  They were creative, skilled, ontime, and on budget.  I can hardly wait to make another one.

Lisa,
If you want a quick, cheap video animation, maybe a template style explainer video might be what you're after. But if you want something unique, or you need a lot of videos to create then you don't want to work with a producer who just copies the same templates over and over again. We can create something "unique" and you'll see that your brand will stand out.

Hi Lisa,
From my experience, given your scope, your budget is quite low. Maybe you can make it work with more junior talent, or talent based outside of a major US city or even overseas?

For comparison, my studio created a short animation for an UN agency last year "at cost" and it still cost in the low 5 figure range.
