Embarking on an animation project and not sure where to start? There are a number of different things to keep in mind when you're about to begin your video animation. Before you settle on your animation studio there are a few questions you need to ask yourself, like what kind of animation are you after? What kind of budget do you have?
Let's start with the cost. Working with an 2D & 3D Animation studio can cost less than working with a number of freelancers. If you are outsourcing the entire animation production process, it can be incredibly expensive to hire several freelancers to work on the project. You also have to manage the project yourself which will take up your valuable time and resources.
With a studio, you'll liaise directly with their producer who will take care of all the ins and outs of working with the illustrators, animators, and editors. This will drastically reduce the time that you have to spend managing people and free up a lot of your time, not to mention taking away all of the stress!
Another benefit of working with an animation studio is that you have more control over the creative process. Because you are using animation as opposed to actors, the movements and actions will be precisely what you envisioned, to begin with. The vision is truer to your idea of the video because the animators simply animate the illustrations you initially approach them with.
