Process – How We Work
Our video production process – making short animated films 100% custom made from scratch.
Use our simple Get Started Form to explain the basic idea of the video: brief, style, budget, length, where it’s to be used, when you need it by and links to any videos that you like. From your details we will contact you within 24 hours (usually 1-2) to answer any questions and to provide you with a free no-obligations quote.
We don’t know your business like you do, you know your product or idea the best. The script should contain the voice over & screen action for each scene. Optionally you can make a simple storyboard with the voice over included. Let us know and you can use our free, printable, blank storyboard template document. Prioritise your message, keep your story short, simple & easy to digest. Always consider the audience you are trying to reach and ensure the video is relevant to them.
We figure out how your video will be best animated, creating our own printable storyboard for the animation that is based on your final approved script / storyboard, while you can just relax and take it easy as it’s now all being taken care of.
Here we design and illustrate characters and environments, all handcrafted. We believe that an awesome animated video needs to stand out, part of the process is creating original design and illustrations for every video, every time. We don’t like to cut corners and we don’t use stock artwork or video templates.
If you have an important message to deliver, you need to have the right person delivering it. When asking for a quote please let us know if you want us to hire a professional voice over artist (Microsoft, Google, Nike) or if you want to provide your own high quality, professional voice over recording. If your voice over is not mastered we do offer a professional audio mastering service.
Here we build and animate each scene by hand based on the approved storyboard and script. The handcrafted animation help you tell the story: You know what you want to communicate and we are here to help you do it, with style and technical expertise.
Next we take the animated video frames created and carefully apply our post production secret sauce.
The last stage is sound and editing, where we add any sound effects and help you find the perfect royalty free song.
Once finalized, we upload the video in beautiful 1080p HD resolution (4K available) so you can download it, use it on your website, YouTube, TV, Vimeo, trade-show, email, sales-meeting and anywhere else you want. As part for the process we give you free, custom embedding code to have it embedded anywhere you want in a single step, including on your website, blog, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, Pinterest & more.
We are always continuing to work on our process flow, process steps, designs and trying out new animation techniques and methods.
