Because news must be both timely and accurate, we've learned to be very quick while maintaining quality. Our clients have come to include global news organizations, entertainment companies and major corporations, who depend on our thousands of hours of production experience for rich, engaging animation
First we start by understanding the client's needs. We ask questions about the client's message, intended audience and ultimate goal.
Next comes script development. An exchange of ideas leads to identification of the 3D characters to appear in the animation and the creation of a story flow.
The third step is the 3D model consultation and development. You can use 3D characters and objects from our library of more than 100,000 images.Or, we can develop custom 3D models for you.
In the story boarding stage, your animation begins to take life. Draft panels outline -- shot by shot, cut by cut -- each scene in your animation.
We then set your animation in motion. Using the latest in motion capture technology, our actors perform scenes from your script.
In the final stage, your story is animated by our team of more than 300 artists and creative professionals, using the most sophisticated software and imaging tools available.
