Choosing an animation studio can be a daunting task. You want a company who can understand your company and problems, come up with creative solutions, and deliver a professional and successful product. Here’s what to look for to ensure the best possible experience working with an animation studio.
Studios should have past projects or portfolios available for review. Never contract with a company that doesn’t provide examples of previous work.
Check the credentials of the studio and its members, look for degrees in related fields and experience on professional projects.
A studio should charge a reasonable amount for their services. Unusually low prices are a red flag for an inexperienced or low quality studio, and may end in an incomplete project, low quality, or a budget raise part-way through.
A professional studio will always require a contract that sets out specific terms for the project, including project details, payment terms, and copyright issues.
Specific About Services
A good studio will be specific about the services they’re providing, including sound, editing, voice over recording, music, and other issues that will need to be specifically discussed. You should always know exactly what the studio is going to deliver.
Revisions are necessary in even the most professional studios. This should be acknowledged in the contract, which should set out how revisions are handled and how much they cost.
When working with an animation studio, you should be involved every step of the way. A professional studio will send sketches and design ideas for your approval. When speaking to members of an animation studio, you should feel that you’re being listened to and that your ideas are respected.
Choosing a great animation studio can be tough, but these tips should help you choose with confidence.
