Commissioning an Explainer Video


Providing a Brief

At Dertypaws Creative Studio we will work to make your vision.  The first step is to understand your product or service.  This involves you providing a description of it.  This may be a written description, sketches, CAD files ans nay other information you think would be helpful.  You may also have a specific look in mind for the project.  Useful prompts for that maybe images or videos.


Your Target Audience

You will have a particular audience that you want to communicate with and have identified where your going to communicate with them.  This may be print, social media platforms, conferences ect.


How it Starts

Taking all the information provided we will create a storyboard.  This will capture all scenes that will make up the animation. It will serve as the template for all the following work.  An example storyboard is here.


Whats Next

All the environments and equipment and characters are modelled. If there are special effects such as water, fire, smoke they are modelled.


Getting Things Moving

Equipment props and characters that are to move are rigged.  Animations are created. A rough animation is created to work out the timings, interactions and camera moves.


Finishing Touches

Lighting, final textures effects are all added. After final review the animation is rendered.


Movie Making

The rendered animation is composited, edited, narration and music are added.  Any additional graphics  are created.  The edit is reviewed then the animation is rendered.  If there are stills required they are rendered as well.

You can see a showcase of completed animation work here.
