2D ANIMATION

 

2D animation is the traditional method of animation. Rather than hand drawing on paper, images are now hand drawn on a computer and animated using industry standard animation software to bring characters and stories to life.

  • Unique & original concept development
  • A variety of 2D animation techniques to suit all budgets
3D ANIMATION

 

3D animation allows you to create things that are just not possible with 2D animation. Characters, objects and scenes are modelled in 3D and are then textured. 3d models can be treated like real world objects, moving the lighting and cameras dynamically in 3D space to create a scene.

 

  • Develop stylised 3D Characters
  • Model and texture realistic objects in 3D
  • High end post-production
  • Fotomedia creates 3D animated videos for web and TV

PROCESS
STEP 1
CONCEPT

 

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.

STEP 2
SCRIPT

 

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.

STEP 3
STORYBOARD

 

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.

STEP 4
VOICE OVERS

 

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.

STEP 5
ANIMATIC

 

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.

STEP 6
ANIMATION

 

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.

STEP 7
MUSIC & SFX

 

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.

STEP 8
FEEDBACK & DELIVERY

 

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.
