					When you embark on your animation project, it may seem like a daunting
process. You have to work out where to begin with the script, brainstorm
the type of illustrations you want and then you have to source your
animators. Animated web videos are the current trend in web videos at the
moment so studios providing animation services are popping up all over
the UK. There are some benefits of working with a studio as opposed to
freelancers.


Working with an animation studio, all of the production process happens
in the one place. Animators, illustrators and producers are all in the
same team, so it's easier overall for you to manage the project on your
end and ensure that nothing is missed out. Nothing slips through the
cracks and everything is on the table. Animation companies can often be
more affordable, without the competitive prices of hiring a variety of
freelancers.

To get started finding your animation studio, it's best to come up with
your initial concept. By approaching the studio with your concept first,
they can go through your ideas along with you and mock up estimate
budgets for the proposal. The factors they will take into consideration
during this process include: style of animation, length of the overall
video, script and music requirements. Make sure you set out all your
initial ideas for the video in this brief, because this is what the
animation studio will have to go on to give you an estimate cost for the
project.

It's also imperative to do background research on the videos that the
studio you approach has already made. This way you will get an idea of
their house style. Assessing whether their portfolio of previous work is
along the lines of what you desire for your video will ensure your video
looks exactly like you want it to. By checking out their portfolio you
can ensure that they offer the styles of animation that you have in mind.

Once you have compared a few different prices, you can choose the
animation studio working within your budget and offering the animation
styles that you require. The studio will then take you right through each
step of the animation process, from storyboard through to voiceovers. You
should ensure you are kept informed of the progress of the video
throughout production, and frequently check in on the project to make
sure it's all going according to plan.
