How Do Animators Bring an Idea to Life?

As a creative individual, you may have dozens of ideas swirling around in your head, begging for a way to become a great animated film or animated cartoon. An experienced animation company possesses the resources to guide your ideas from their home in your head into a polished product you can be proud to show off. Animators offer a number of services that bring these ideas to life. Concept Design The first step in bringing ideas to life is concept design. This step is vital to the success of any animation production because it sharpens your idea, lending it depth, individuality, and identity that will set it apart from any other project out there. The concept artists at Powerhouse Animation will use their creativity and artistic skill to create a unique style for your idea that will permeate the entire project. Their visual representation of your idea will help you to establish your project's distinctive look and feel. Character Design The second step in bringing ideas to life is character design. Character design is the process by which the animators develop the characters and mascots whose unique personalities will populate your project. Character design is not just for entertainment, either. The process can be used to develop mascots that will win over customers in animation advertising, educational animation projects, or even video games. The animators work closely with you to make sure they capture exactly the kind of character you are envisioning. The finished character will reflect the style, message, and feel you want your project to have as it comes to life on the screen.


Storyboards Storyboards are another essential aspect of the animation process. Storyboards are sets of drawings that lay out how the film or show will develop. Animators use them to take your idea and flesh it out into a visual storyline. Storyboards and animatics can be used in a variety of ways. For instance, they can be used to plan the composition and shots used in a film in order to get the best images or stay within a budget. They can also bring your idea to life by representing visually the plan for the entire animation project. The animators at Powerhouse Animation can also create animatics by adding audio to the storyboards to give you an even better idea of what the finished product will look like. Animation Animation is at the very heart of the process that brings your project to life. Through animation, your idea takes form, begins to move and act on the screen, and draws your viewers in to the story or message you want to convey. Animation takes the concept you developed with the concept artists, the characters the animators have designed, and the storyboards that have been developed and combines them into a completed project. There are many types of animation that the animation studio can use, depending upon the goals of the project: Traditional animation comes in a variety of styles. These include anime, feature animation, and cartoon animation to create the project you are dreaming of in the style that suits it the best. This type of animation results in a look that has been used in famous projects such as Mickey Mouse and the Marvel comics. Motion comics are a type of animation designed to bring the action of the comic book to life on the screen. Animation studios like Powerhouse can utilize the layers and complexity of motion comics to make the viewer feel as if they have just stepped foot into the world that you have imagined and created. Commercial animation, also known as advertising animation, is most suitable for advertisements and branding projects. This type of animation reflects the uniqueness of your brand and allows you to convey your message to a wide audience. Very often, animated ads involve the use of a mascot to create a broad appeal and connect with the target audience. Examples of successful commercial animation include the Coca-Cola polar bear commercials. Education animation is used in educational videos and films. As a result, it targets specific age groups, such as junior high or high school children. Your animation partner can help you to bring your educational idea to life in a way that is suitable for the audience you wish to instruct. These types of animation are only a sampling of the kinds of animation that animators can use to bring your idea to life. Motion graphics, after effects animation, and more equip them to create a project that captures your vision. You have the idea. The animators at Powerhouse Animation have the tools to take that idea and make it a reality. From concept design to character design to storyboards and just the right type of animation, animators will help you to translate your dream into a successful project.
