2D animation works well when explaining simpler processes, or when a little more depth (or some special effects) are needed for live-shot videos.
2D animation is more typically found in corporate videos and business-to-consumer marketing. We can bring illustrations to life as an animated explainer video, or we can create video presentations or slideshows to really engage your delegates.
2D explainer videos
This style of video is very popular with companies looking to explain service offerings where live shot video or CGI is not required. This style of video works well for showing non-complex processes along with a voiceover, and it is priced based on duration (from 30 seconds up to 10 minutes).
How does it work and how much does it cost?
We begin by identifying your requirements and creating a storyboard. If a voiceover is required, we will create a script with you and recommend professional voiceover artists from our repertoire. For 2D explainer animations, you will receive a storyboard with exact look and feel panels (the actual illustrations that will be animated). For motion graphics, we will provide a text-based storyboard with concept visuals to show the styling we envisage.
Once the storyboard and script (if applicable) have been approved, we will begin animation and asset creation. We will gain your approval at key points as necessary, to reduce the risk of missing deadlines. The video will be synchronised to the voiceover if this applies. When it’s all finished, you’ll receive your video ready for use in your marketing materials and upload to social media channels.
In general the cost will depend on the duration of the video, and we can provide standard costs for 2D explainer videos on request, starting at 30 seconds and incrementing per minute from there. For more advanced motion graphics and VFX, we will need to price these based on your requirements. 2D explainer videos start from £1500 +vat.
