Andrew Bouley, Creative Director

Renderforest has been influential in helping our marketing team meet and exceed their goals. Animation was always something that required a lot of time and attention, but now it allows them to quickly create a professional video and then dive back into their other projects. I would recommend Renderforest to anyone looking to jump-start their business while achieving professional quality videos and animation.

James B., E-learning Expert

“For what it does and for the cost, it cannot be beat. Renderforest makes it easy to create and publish brand specific content like intro videos, explainer videos, and more! We use Renderforest to create brand explainer videos for our site and clients. The templates provided are great and make it easy to find an appropriate, brand related video. There are templates from more professional to the more artsy, fun, so plenty to chose from no matter what field you may be in. They are high quality videos and the costs are minimal to other options in the market. This is a great tool for small business who do not have the budget to ask professional to design and edit all videos.”

Jacob Carlile, Marketing Manager

We love using Renderforest in our real estate business both for our own videos and for our clients’. The platform is very easy to use and with new templates released all the time, so we are able to keep our marketing fresh and contemporary. The quality of the videos and the support are first class. I would recommend Renderforest to anyone considering an online video production platform.
