Animation videos as of late have been the biggest thing pertaining to advertisement, marketing and brand building. Whilst the real movie-making industry is also booming, with cutting edge editing and real-to-life capturing cameras, animation videos provide an “entertainment value” to the project making it more likeable by the masses. If are planning to embark on an animation project, there are many animation studios in Sydney to choose from but there are some tips that you should keep in mind for a seamless experience. Before we get into the tips, let’s discuss the hype and the overall incorporation of animations by different platforms all around.
YouTube is a platform that incorporates or perhaps sets the trends for people to follow, animation included. As of recently content creators on YouTube, have been incorporating animated versions of themselves doing funny or niche specific activities at the beginning and the end of the video. This includes YouTubers (IISuperwomanII, James Charles and the Dolan Twins). A completely animated home YouTube channel is Planet Dolan. Incorporating certain visual aspects increases the channels entertainment value, resulting in further popularity of these individual’s work.
Here are some things that you should keep in mind, while hiring an animation company to work for you.
It is generally thought that hiring individual freelancers can be an expensive job as compared to hiring a whole company to do everything. Now that may be true or not depending on the competence of individuals and the company you choose to work with. The cost for hiring freelancers may amount to a lot if they are highly qualified professionals or some may not even charge you that much because they maybe are just starting out and not that experienced. Try branching out and look at work by new people too because they have a fresh perspective and some inexperienced animators are very talented. Look through a few portfolios by professionals and amateurs to get a good idea about what works for you. Hiring a company may not only be beneficial for you monetary wise, but since every single thing will be done under the same roof, it will become easy for you to coordinate with the editors and designers etc.
Whichever option you decide to go with, do keep a lookout or ask for testimonials and about past clients and see if they have anything to say about the person you are hiring. Once you decide on a person or company, give their portfolio a thorough look and confirm for the last time. Lastly, depending on your project, you might not even require the help of animation studios in Australia or freelancers if the nature of the work is low, like a school project. You can go ahead and hire someone not as good for less money if you do not want to spend a lot for a mere school project.
