Sand Visuals Stop Motion Studio - Who We Are?

What to Expect from a Stop Motion Animation Company?

Before anything else, you might ask: why should you choose stop motion animation for your products?

Stop motion animation is a unique storytelling method. It is different, engaging, interesting, and unforgettable if done right. There are several reasons why you should consider stop motion as your promotional material:

It’s unique. Stop motion animation uses a different yet interesting way to promote your products. With objects appearing to move by themselves, it can deliver a message with a fun and charming twist.

It’s informative. Whether you are launching a new product, looking for seasonal content or working on an educational piece, stop motion is a great visual tool to showcase your brand. Through demonstration, it’s easier for your audience to understand how your product works. The product’s features and ingredients can also easily be shown through stop motion. 

It's up to date. With social media platforms pushing for more video content, stop motions keep up with the ever changing world of social platforms and algorithms. 

It’s witty & engaging. There’s something about stop motion animations that just catches the interest of many viewers. It looks livelier and knowing that each frame is handcrafted, gives a more personal touch that the viewers can relate to.

It’s short and sweet. With people’s attention span getting shorter and shorter, stop motion is the perfect medium for getting your brand’s message across while keeping things light and fun.

As a stop motion animation studio, we at SAND visuals give what our clients need and more. 

 

From the start of the creation process, we work hand-in-hand with our clients so we can fully understand their needs and vision. 

We highly value this vision since this serves as the foundation of every project we create. 

From conceptualization to the final result, we listen to our client’s feedback so that the animation resonates with this vision. 

As our client, you can only expect the best quality service from us whether we create the whole campaign from scratch or if we are just contributing to it.

How We Do Stop Motion Animation?

At SAND visuals, we value your ideas. We are very hands-on with all of our projects from start to finish. First, we listen to what our clients want and we begin to conceptualize how to bring out the uniqueness of their product or brand. Working closely together with the client allows us to understand better what they want to achieve and get necessary feedback throughout the whole production process. 

 

Brainstorming is a crucial part of the creation process as this is the step where the client and our team throw out ideas to create the perfect animation. This is the pre-production process where we discuss the animation’s concept, design, and storyline. We also need to know the client’s target audience to craft an animation that will suit their audience’s taste. 

 

When we have a clear concept, we move on to the development of the design and execution of the animation. Using stop motion animation is a great way to promote the product and its features. The challenge is how we can put it in motion. The SAND visuals team consistently consults with the client in regards to how they want their product to be presented. The animating process only happens when the client and our team are both happy with the pre-production stage. This includes the props, background, and scenes for the animation.   

 

Stop motion animation can be quite a time-consuming process which is why we lay down a schedule for the production process depending on how long a client will need. This gives our team a clear view of our goals for each step and the time to consult the client for any changes they think necessary. 

 

When the pre-production has been approved, we start setting up our studio for the start of production. The client may oversee the actual process or we can send sample still frames for approval. Once we get the green light, we start the animation stage. The duration for this stage depends on how complicated the shots are, the movements of the set and cameras, and the amount of rigging needed to complete the shots. 

 

We mainly use the software called Dragonframe when shooting our frames. This is a powerful tool that was specifically designed for stop motion animation and has been used on the set of stop-motion films like Shaun the sheep, Kubo, Isle of dogs and many more. 

 

Here at SAND visuals we always aim to use the equipment and tools necessary for stop motion animation to give you quality results.

The photo shoot itself is a time-consuming process where we take 10-15 photos for every second of your stop motion animation. 

 

Post-production is the last step in producing a stop motion animation. This is where we put the final touches on the video to make it pop. Adding effects or music as well as color grading helps with making your product look the best it can be.

How Much Does Stop Motion Cost?

People might think that we base the pricing of a stop motion animation on its total video length. However, the cost of producing it depends on a lot of other factors too. Stop motion animation is a time-consuming process right from its conception which is why our rate varies depending on the following factors:

  • Video length

  • The complexity of the story

  • Pre-production processes 

  • Equipment used

  • Usage and removal of rigs and armatures

  • Post-production processes such as retouching, added motion graphics, text, music and sound effects

While stop motion animation can be more complicated to produce than a regular video it offers more flexibility. So no matter what your budget is, we always try to make sure that the end product will exceed your expectations. You, the client only deserve the best for your product and brand.
