How To Make Animations Online With Video Igniter?

1). Contact Us To Start Making Your Animations Online

How To Make Animations Online With Video Igniter

Start production by getting in touch with us – send us a message about the animations you want to make, or with our production team. We will work with you to develop a production plan for your animations so that we can make them for you on time and on budget. Then, we’ll spend some time learning:

✅ What do you want to communicate in your animations?

✅ Who is the target audience for your animations?

✅ What do you want people to do when they’re done watching your animations?

✅ What visual style do you want us to use when we make your animations?

2). Scripts

Make Animations Online Script

Our writing team will develop scripts for your animations and share them with you to get your feedback. When you review the scripts, make sure they contain all your talking points and that we communicate them the way your target audience is used to discussing them. We will revise your scripts until you are 100% happy with them.

3). Storyboards

Make Animations Online Storyboard

Next, we’ll turn your scripts into storyboards. A storyboard is a visual blueprint for the production team. It provides instructions for the illustrators and animators so that they know what to create. Give your storyboard a detailed review to ensure it includes documentation for all of the important visual details that need to be included in your animation. If we missed anything, let us know and we’ll add it into your storyboard.

4). VoiceOvers


You will receive voiceover auditions for every character in your animations. Let us know which voice(s) you prefer. We’ll hire those people to record the full voiceover for your animations. You will get an opportunity to review the full length voiceover(s) and request revisions before approving the audio for production.

5). Soundtracks


You will receive several soundtrack options that we feel can be used to enhance the presentation of key moments in your animations. Let us know which options you prefer and then we’ll acquire the broadcast rights so that we can legally use the music when we make your animations.

6). Illustrations

Our art director will develop custom concept art for your animations. Let the art director know which concept you like best. You can also collaborate with the art director to refine the visual details so that the art perfectly matches your branding.

After the concept is approved, we create all of the illustrations for your animations. Give the art a detailed review and let us know what revisions you would like us to make before we start animating your videos.

7). Animation

Now that everything is approved, it’s time to make your animations. For some projects, you may receive all of your animations at once. Other production schedules may have the videos delivered on a ‘rolling basis’ – meaning you may receive 1-2 videos/week so that they’re ready for publishing the following week.

In either case, we recommend reviewing your animations with members of your target audience. Collect their feedback and send it to us to review. We will integrate your feedback and then render out the final draft of each animation for you to use.
