From understanding the stop-motion production process right through to writing an animation brief, there are tips and pointers for anyone embarking on an animation project.  Here’s all you need to know and where to get it:

Free guide to stop-motion animation:

For many of our clients, stop-motion animation is often uncharted territory. So in order to give you a taste of what you can expect during a production we’ve put together a comprehensive overview, outlining all the key milestones and sign-offs.

Here at A+C the production process couldn’t be simpler. We’re a one-stop shop so can take care of everything, from creative and storyboards, right through to model making, animation and post-production. Our setup ensures we can offer lower production costs and faster turn-around times. We can produce animated content in as little as a day with full character animation taking the same time or less time than your standard CGI commercial.

How to write an animation brief

You’re looking to commission a new animation and have been given the task of writing the brief. Struggling to know where to start? Worry not. We’ve put together a helpful guide to run through everything you need to know.

A brief is an essential document produced for an animation studio that effectively covers the objectives of the film, the strategic direction and all the deliverables you require.

This document will allow you to consider in detail what it is you want to achieve from the creative and will ensure both you and the animation studio are on the same page throughout the process. Nobody knows your business better than you, so collaboration will be an important part of the process and it starts with the brief.
