Method to our Madness

First Step: Story Development

We create ideas for characters, scenes, and concepts. Starting with a script and transitioning to a simple drawing and a sketch. Storyboards like the one below help to determine what fits and what doesn't.
We pitch ideas with different concepts and prices that fit the budget of each project.

Second Step: Character Design

Once we have established a concept we design the character and go through transitions of facial features, accessories, and shading.

Second Step: Animation

This is the process where we rig the characters and add physical simulations to bring the scene to life.

Third Step: Scene Setup

To get the scene setup we add texturing, coloring, lighting and mood of the overall story.

Standard Rates of Animation

Rates depend on complexity of the character and what is happening in the scene. In general character animations are around $500-$1,000 per minute. If the character has highly realistic hair and cloth simulations cost are around $1,500-$2,500 per minute.
This process usually takes us at least 6-8 weeks when we are developing the character and story.
We create visuals that react to the frequency of music to give a visual display. Our standard rates for visuals synced to music are $300-$1,000 per minute of animation. Contact us for more information.
