Well-researched, clever script writing in a relatable tone. Instructional narration. Snappy dialogue. Humor. A good script can teach complex information in a way that's concise, accessible, and fun.

No matter how beautiful the video looks, it's going to fall flat without top notch audio. I direct voice actors and edit sound with an ear for clarity and pacing.

Hi, I'm Drew Roberts

I write and direct all sorts of stuff, from short films to music videos—but my specialty is educational videos. Clients include BrainPop, Flocabulary, and Nearpod. 

I got into animation and video after years as a writer and journalist. I have an English bachelor's from Queen's University (Canada) and a journalism master's from the Newhouse School at Syracuse University. In the early 2010s I worked as a reporter and editor at various newspapers and magazines in the Syracuse area, and had short stories published in literary magazines coast to coast. In 2014 I joined Flocabulary, where I served as Director of Animation and made hundreds of educational hip-hop music videos for the next five years. In 2019 I struck out on my own with Roberts Motion LLC, where I continue to write and direct for Flocab and other EdTech companies.  I'm currently working on client projects, a short film, and a pilot episode for an animated series. 

When I'm not cranking out toons I'm making music, canoeing, and traveling. 

Got a project? A wild idea? Let's nerd out! Give me a shout using the form below.
