What's The Animation Production Process Looks Like?

Creative Kick-Off Session

The kick-off is a chance to gather all the creative brains within the project team together before production begins. We believe in having as much face-to-face time as possible, whether that’s at our studio, your office, or even via videoconference. As well as creative discussions around how the story or style treatment will best engage with the audience, we’ll also discuss practical topics like what the key deliverables will be, what the main call to action is and what project success will look like.

Go To Script

Scriptwriting

Once we fully understand your message, we’ll start to draft a script. This might mean starting from scratch, or honing and developing a script you already have. The voiceover script is accompanied by a written shot-by-shot description of what the viewer will see on screen and this helps to provide a mental picture of the action before we start producing the storyboards. This ‘shooting script’ might also include reference images or animated gifs which help to explain the action.

Go To Storyboard

Storyboards

The storyboards are a grid of deliberately rough sketched individual artwork panels (or images). They show all of the shots in your video, and the order in which they’ll appear. Each panel is accompanied by the voiceover that will feature during that shot, as well as notes which explain the action. In some cases, we might also produce an animatic. An animatic is a video version of the storyboards and might include an animation test, a dummy voiceover as well as sample sound design and music.

Go To Artwork

Artwork

Once the storyboards have been approved, we’ll create all of the artwork layouts. We’ll typically start with a proof of concept art which we call a ‘style frame’ and/or character designs. This ensures you can be involved in developing the final design style. The style frame will give you a perfect sense of what the final film will look like alongside the storyboards. Once the artwork is approved, we’ll get to work producing all the layouts. These are essentially polished versions of the storyboards in the final design style.

Go to Animation

Animation

Once you’re happy with the artwork layouts, we get to the most exciting part of the process. For 2D vector ‘cutout’ animation, our artist will rig the characters’ bodies, giving them an adjustable bone structure which allows them to pose the character like a puppet. Alternatively, the artist may animate tradigitally – imagine old-school Disney frame-by-frame animation, but in a computer. Cutout animation is a more cost-effective approach whilst traditional animation offers greater fluidity of animation.

Go to Sound Design

Sound Design

Although we have access to some award-winning composers, in the majority of cases we’ll source and present customised stock music track options. We aren’t restricted to using royalty-free music and our fixed fee music costs are inclusive of all necessary usage licences. The Producer will provide a series of music alternatives which are based on your preferences and, once you’re happy, we’ll combine this with the voiceover to form a soundtrack that sounds as amazing as your video looks.

Go to Voiceover

Studio VO Recording

All of our voiceover is studio recorded by professional voice artists and actors and the fixed price quoted is inclusive of the studio, Producer, and Sound Engineer costs, as well as the artists’ record and usage fee. You can even conference into the recording session to help direct the voice artist. Once recorded, the Sound Engineer will clean up the voiceover and a Sound Designer from Nibble will edit the audio. This voiceover is combined with the music to form the soundtrack that the animation is timed to.

Go to Screen Recording

Screen Recording

In order to showcase the features and functionality in your software or app demo, we’ll need to produce a high-resolution screen recording. Specialist software allows us full control over the speed and fluidity of mouse movements as well as clicks and transitions. It also offers us the ability to pan across and zoom in and out of the screen or application sections that require focus. Finally, our motion designers will apply necessary titles, annotations or callouts to ensure your recording is as slick and professional as possible.

Go to Interactivity

Interactivity

Once the video is complete, we use specialist software to implement the interactive video features. As well as standard in-video hyperlinking, other popular interactive features include hotspots (automatically tracking an object allowing viewers to interact with it at any point) and branching (where the viewer is given various options which allow them to interact with and guide their own tailored narrative). We also give you access to in-depth video analytics which will allow you to measure video performance.

Go to Delivery

Delivery

Once approved, it’s time to deliver your video. The final files are sent digitally and encrypted with password protection for security. Your video can be supplied in any standard or high definition format and in any standard file format you need (i.e. .WMV/.AVI, MPEG, H264 or .MOV). If it’s helpful, Nibble’s video experts are also on hand to support you in promoting your video – devising video marketing strategies that will ensure your video is seen by as many of the right types of viewer as possible.

  • HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO PRODUCE AN Animated Video WITH NIBBLE?

Contact our team today to get a no-obligation project estimate!
  • HOW QUICKLY CAN YOU PRODUCE AN Animated Video?
    • It takes around two weeks to produce an animated video with Nibble, although it all depends individually on the project. Drop us a line today for a no-obligation chat and we'll be happy to advise!
  • WHAT’S THE ANIMATION PRODUCTION PROCESS LOOKS LIKE?
    • At Nibble, we pride ourselves on a genuinely collaborative yet straightforward approach. We begin the proceedings by conducting an initial discussion to understand your goals and how you would like to reach them. Once we have a clear idea of what you’d like to achieve with your video, our scriptwriters and designers will furnish a few ideas after detailed group discussions. When one of these ideas reaches approval with you, it will be further refined by our creative team before being passed on to our animators. Upon completion, we will deliver an explainer video that delivers your on-brand messaging, giving your viewers an interesting, engaging and, most importantly, memorable explanation. To make the process as transparent as possible, you’ll be able to follow each stage of the process via our custom Project Portal.

    • All animated videos coming out of the Nibble studio are 100% original and tailor-made for your business. We work with the most talented animation artists in the industry, developing custom characters and engaging stories that best fit your brand needs.
  • ANIMATION STUDIO VS FREELANCE ARTISTS – WHO SHOULD I CHOOSE?
