At PN, our hearts go out across the river to the victims first and foremost, but also to everyone in Boston and beyond, because events like this touch us all— Planet Nutshell (@PlanetNutshell) April 16, 2013

Who actually makes your videos? I hear this question a lot from prospective clients.
The answer is simple. We do. The people at Planet Nutshell live and work in the Boston area and we produce our videos in-house. We don’t outsource our scripts. I write every one of them, in fact. We don’t have someone in L.A. produce our storyboards. Animation isn’t done halfway around the world.
It’s all done right here, by three people who live and breathe writing, illustration, and animation. We aren’t salespeople (we don’t have a salesperson). We aren’t a marketing company with an army of far-flung freelancers. We’re an animation studio. And that makes a difference.

Here’s our latest, created for the Swedish startup TimeCenter. We can say with a great deal of certainty that this is the first explainer video in which someone is getting a blow-dry, manicure, and foot treatment all at the same time.

We were just playing around with styles and made this little short. Why? Just because!

Planet Nutshell is proud to have a new life form living among us. He’s quite a talented creature. We call him John. We transported him to Planet Nutshell and invited him to live among us because of his lovable characters, strong animation chops, and storytelling skills. He is also amazing with a frisbee.
John graduated from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth in 2012, where he earned an MFA in Digital Media. He also holds a BA in Graphic Design and Multidisciplinary Studies from Stonehill College.
Learn more about John on our About Us page.

The folks over at CommonCraft have assembled some of the best explainer video producers in the biz, making it easy for people to find the perfect producer for them. Planet Nutshell is proud to be included, and we’re looking forward to working with great new clients as a result.
We’re especially thankful CommonCraft’s Lee Lefever’s strong introduction for Planet Nutshell in a recent blog post
When we first started making videos in 2007, we had a meeting with Josh Gunn, who was living in Seattle at the time. Since then he’s gone on to build Planet Nutshell, which has been creating explainer videos for over 5 years. His company’s work is among our favorites due to its lighthearted style and focus on quality writing.

Planet Nutshell has been operating on Planet Earth since 2007. We’re no mathematicians, but that adds up to five years. Five years of lovingly-crafted explainer and educational videos. What better way to commemorate that than a demo reel? Enjoy.

Here’s our latest Nutshell for the great folks at Leaf.me.
The real challenge here was to create a scenario that remained fun and entertaining while also showing the key features of the product. Another challenge was to show the uniqueness of the Leaf platform; it’s a useful product for both consumers and merchants.
The talents of many folks came together to build this video, from actors, to compositors, to animators. We hope it shows.
