Some of our recent animations have been very character focused. Adding characters to your animated videos helps to engage the viewers with the story and makes your message more memorable and relatable.
We animate all of our characters in Adobe After Effects by using a mixture of frame by frame, key frame motion tweening, masks and the puppet tool. So 2D character animation is not as labour intensive or as costly as you might expect.
For each project, we design characters specifically for that brief as each client has their own brand, purpose and audience. We don’t use character templates or stock images. Once our client has decided which character style suit’s their project, we then illustrate and animate them to bring the characters to life!
