The Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (RSA) is producing an on-going series of animations in which academic lectures are combined with synchronised time-lapsed illustration. These quirky animations are both intellectually and visually engaging, with the audio and video working well to support each other and convey the message of the speaker.

Here are a couple of my favourites:

Professor Philip Zimbardo – The Secret Powers of Time

Dan Pink – Drive: The surprising truth about what motivates us

More videos in this series can be found on the RSA website.
