As no one knows your brand or project better than you, the first stage in any animation project is to take a deep dive into what the project is, and what makes the business or brand tick. Here, our creative director will ask questions to start formulating a creative vision, whilst the production team will get into the nitty gritty about how the project will run.
Once we've fully understood the brand or project, we will start to develop a concept treatment, styleframes or motion tests. The objective is to explore and establish the look and feel of the project. This is where ideas are thrown around, binned, developed and tested, before arriving at the perfect style for the project.
Now that the look and feel has been established, the next step is to create the story flow. Each scene is drawn out and placed in an end-to-end storyboard, allowing us to see how the film will look. Here, we can see if the story works, and input or remove scenes of necessary.
Once we are happy with the storyboard, it's time to animate. At this stage, our animation team fully engage, applying the concepts developed in the concept stage, to the storyboard that has been created. When it's ready, we'll send it to you for feedback, so together we can make sure the animation is perfectly crafted for its use case.
Finally, when the animation is complete and looking great, we'll make sure it sounds great too. Whether it's a composed score, sound effects or just a swingin' sound track, this final stage will get your animation ready for the limelight.
