All videos have a 35 day automatic timeline, but can be shortened or extended based on your needs- let us know your deadlines so we can include rushes or extensions in the scope.

Examples:
2D - Iconographic/Typographic/Whiteboard Animation
2D - Character/Illustration/2.5D Parallax Photography
3D - Abstract/Character
3D - Stop Motion/Papercraft
3D - CGI Modelling/Photorealistic

 

 

2D - Iconographic/Typographic/Whiteboard Animation
These styles are often referred to as standard motion graphics. They are defined by relatively simple icons or text. These are popular as a budget-friendly way to make an attractive, informative video. Within this level are two sub-categories:

Typographic or Iconographic. Whiteboard Animation has a completely different look, but we've categorized it in the same complexity level.

Typographic videos use a lot of text throughout the video, and often entire sentences are visualized in text form. In some cases, a voiceover is unnecessary. Here are some examples.

2D - Character/Illustration/2.5D Parallax Photography
This type of video is characterized by animated illustrations of various complexity, and fall into three categories:Character Animation, Illustration, and 2.5D Parallax Photography.

Illustration videos include custom illustrations of the various visual elements that will make up the video, but use many types of visuals, rather than focusing on characters. This style might use characters as a part of a chart, for example, as opposed to characters acting out scenes.

3D Abstract/Character 
3D Abstract videos utilize depth to create images that appear more realistic, and fall into two categories: 3D Abstract and 3D Character.
