Pre-Production

1. Discovery

During discovery, we understand your business and video objectives through a questionnaire and conversations with key personnel. This gives us an understanding about the message that needs to be conveyed in the video.

2. Script

A solid script forms the foundation of a great video. We first develop a concept after brainstorming several ideas. We then transform your message into a script that effectively communicates your message to your audience.

Number of revisions – 3

3. Voiceover

A great voiceover ensures that your video truly connects with your audience. We send you a curated list of skilled voiceover talent to choose from. Once your selection is made, the recording takes place in a professional studio.

Number of revisions – None

4. Style Frames

A style frame is a single, customized, full colour frame that reflects the overall style and look of the video. We harness all our creativity to create a unique look that captures your brand essence.

5. Storyboard

The storyboard stage shows how the script will play out scene by scene. We create a sequence of visuals that depict the design, layout and flow of the video, much like a comic book.

Sound design can make all the difference when it comes to your video. We send you 2-3 background music options for selection, and then layer in sound effects to add that extra zing.

We deliver your awesome 2d animated video in 1080p full HD format.

* For screencast animation, the script and storyboard have to be provided by the client.

Client Guidelines

The client needs to keep a few things in mind:

1. Complete information

We need all information from the client pertaining to the creation of the video, including logos, fonts, colour palette, images, photos, text, etc. prior to scripting. This ensures that we have everything we need all at once before commencing work. If the information is sent in stages, it may affect the timelines as well as the quality of the video.

2. Prompt feedback

The client is requested to provide feedback within 24 hours so that there are no delays. The feedback should be clear (be as specific as possible), concise (properly referenced bullet points), and consolidated (in a single communication) for each stage. We also insist upon a single co-ordinator from the client’s end to ensure efficiency.

3. Limited revisions

The client is provided a limited number of revisions at each stage to ensure that we can provide our services at affordable prices. This number has been calculated based upon our years of experience and works well as part of our finely tuned production process. If you do need additional revisions, we can make them available at an extra cost.

4. Approvals

We take approvals from our clients at every stage, meaning we don’t proceed to the next stage without an approval for the previous stage. Hence, it’s important that we receive timely approvals from the client. Once we move to the next stage, please note that it becomes extremely difficult to make changes in any of the earlier stages.

A failure to follow these guidelines may result in delays and/or additional charges.
