Fotomedia is a multi-award winning Animation Studio in Hope Street, South Brisbane and Burleigh Heads, Gold Coast providing full 2D and 3D Animation Services.
At Fotomedia we create bespoke animated videos, within any budget, that actually reach an audience and stand out from the crowd. We have a talented team of in-house animators who create everything including 3D & 2D animation, 2D & 3D character design and rigging, motion graphics, animated explainer videos, live action footage vfx integration & much more.
Fotomedia provide animation solutions for a range of clients including large corporations, brilliant start-ups, government agencies and professional sports teams. We create engaging animated content across a huge variety of formats including:
The Concept step is where we create a visual concept that will determine the colour palette, character design and look and feel of the animation. This ensures that we create a visual style that is consistent with your message.
You can write your own script, or if you know what you would like to communicate we can help you to shape it into a script for your animated video. At this stage we ensure that everything you would like to communicate is included.
The Storyboard step involves drawing rough panels to help you visualise the script. You’ll be able to see how each scene is laid out in video and get a good idea of the progression of the story. This allows us to make visual changes quickly.
We work with a broad range of professional vocal talent and can find the ideal voice to match your animation, whether for the characters, or just for a voice over for the video. Once recorded the animators can start working on the timing.
The Animatic is the drawn storyboard brought to life. This is designed to lock down the timing and pacing of the animation. This step is often skipped depending on the style and length of the animation, as well as the project budget.
The exciting part! The Animation step is actually a lot of different steps and is the most time consuming. It includes character design and animation, set design, typography, motion graphics, compositing and editing.
Sound Effects and Music are like the icing on the cake. They can emphasise the message and further boost the mood of the animation. We can source and design your sound effects and music to perfectly match your animated video.
At each Step you have the opportunity to provide feedback that will help to shape the animation. When the final animation is approved we can export the video for any platform whether for the internet, TV or cinema advertising.
