Some of you may have seen this type of video floating around the web recently:
Lancor | Switch Video
Originally, these type of videos started off as people drawing on an actual whiteboard and the animation was recorded live and synced to the audio. I would prefer to take a different route and either:
A) Record using an electronic white board (using a pen and tablet tool) and then have a hand added in later somehow.
B) Have the illustrations pre-drawn and the path traced like the following tutorial demonstrates:
Animated Handwriting in After Effects « « Layers Magazine Layers Magazine
C) If all else fails, an actual whiteboard with an illustrator being filmed live.
I'm not a video editor myself and will be hiring one (I already have a great illustrator with a pen and tablet tool). I just need some much needed advice on what approach I should be taking to producing these type of videos.
Should I be looking for somebody skilled in After Effects, Flash, etc ?
Thank you in advance, any guidance is MUCH appreciated.
