Kurzgesagt (German for “in a nutshell”) is a German animation studio founded by Philipp Dettmer. The studio’s YouTube channel focuses on minimalist animated educational content, using the flat design style.
It discusses scientific, technological, political, philosophical, and psychological subjects. Narrated by Steve Taylor, videos on the channel are typically 4–16 minutes in length, with many of them available in German through the channel Dinge Erklärt – Kurzgesagt.
Aside from their German channel, they began creating videos for their Spanish channel En Pocas Palabras – Kurzgesagt near the end of 2019.
While their English channel mostly finances itself with donations from their viewers and individual sponsorships, the German channel is supported by funk, the online presence of German public broadcasting, and the Spanish channel is sponsored by Wix.
With over 10 million subscribers, the studio’s channel was ranked as the world’s 465 (noxinfluencer.com) or 478th (socialblade.com) most subscribed in 2020.
