2D Animation Portfolio
We produce as many motion graphics animated videos as we do live action videos. Both types of content are produced in-house, meaning we can also pepper animation and visual effects (VFX) in to our live action videos to give them flair and a little Ka Pow! Our designers can animate literally anything.
All forms of animation lend themselves well to explaining and showing content which is otherwise hard to visualise. 2D animation is a cost effective, ‘flat’ style of motion graphics. Generally, 2D animations have a contemporary and popular look and can be designed to work exceptionally well on mobile devices. We integrate the use of block colours to aids their compression and streaming, and therefore helps the animation's playback quality.
Often called 'Explainer Videos’ or simply 'Explainers' by our US cousins, 2D animations are the perfect format for explaining a process, or service, which is otherwise hard to visualise or communicate. For example, we have produced animations for our clients to help staff understand the new corporate structure, for patients to understand their treatment journey, to create an identity for a new brand, to explain retail apps to a client’s customers, and to explain who companies are and how their service works amongst many other applications for our clients.
Two factors affect the cost for any animation: The final duration and the complexity.
- Duration: Every second of animation is made from ‘thin air’ as a result of designer and animator time, so the longer the animation, the more time it takes and therefore costs.
- Complexity: How long it takes to make each second of animation depends on how complex both the design work is, and how complex the animation movements are.
When we talk about an animation’s complexity, we grade it as the film’s ‘production values’. Examples of our animations at varying levels of production values include:
- Economy Production Values (EPV)
- Mid-Production Values (MPV)
- High Production Values (HPV)
