Sundstedt Animation - how we work process

Our handcrafted animated video production service has been designed to make it clear & easy to understand when you want an awesome video created. Here is our tried & tested 8 step process:

01 Creative Brief / Idea:

Process Step One - ConceptUse our simple Get Started Form to explain the basic idea of the video and your budget. We will contact you within 24 hours to answer any questions.

02 Script:

Process Step Two - ScriptingWe don’t know your business like you do, you know your product or idea the best. Please include a script with voice over & basic annotations for each scene. Prioritise your message, keep your story short, simple & easy to digest. Who is it for? Always consider the audience you are trying to reach & ensure the video is relevant to them.

03 Storyboarding:

Process Step Three - Storyboard DesignWe recommend providing a simple storyboard sketch of each scene in your script. A stick figure sketch is great, or you could simply make a PowerPoint.

04 Visual Style:

Process Step Four - StyleWe then figure out how your video will be best designed and animated, based on your brief, final script & storyboard, while you can just relax and take it easy as it’s now all being taken care of. We work out what it looks like, we design and illustrate all artwork, characters and environments, all handcrafted from scratch in-house. We believe that an awesome animated video needs to stand out, so part of our 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.

05 Voiceover:

Process Step Five - VOIf 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, Pfizer) or if you want to provide your own high quality, professional voice over artist studio recording.

06 Animation:

Process Step Six - Animation ProductionHere we build and animate each scene by hand based on the approved storyboard and script. The handcrafted animation helps 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. We are always continuing to work on our process flow, process steps, designs and trying out new animation techniques and methods.

Process Step Seven - SoundThe last stage in the production is sound mixing. Here we add any sound effects to improve the animations, add the voice over track & help you find the perfect royalty-free song.

08 Delivery

Once finalized, we upload the video in beautiful 1080p HD resolution (4K optional) so you can download and use it on your website, YouTube, Vimeo, trade-show, email, sales-meeting and anywhere else you want. As part of 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, Google & Twitter.
