How To Save Money When Turning A Storyboard Into An Animation

How To Save Money When Turning A Storyboard Into An Animation

1). Don’t Rush Production

Plan to start production as early as possible. Rush delivery costs can increase your production budget by 25-50% or more. Starting production a few weeks earlier can save you a lot of money.

2). Use Simple, Clear Instructions

Make the directions in your storyboard simple. Use short bullet points to describe what you want to happen, sequentially (or simultaneously). Providing instructions with simple, clear language reduces the possibility of an illustrator or animator misinterpreting your instructions.

3). Record Your Voiceover

Watch 1:31 in this video to learn how you can record your own professional quality voiceover at home, for free.

5). Use Free, Legal Music

Free, legal music is available for you to use from Incompetech and Facebook’s Sound Collection.

5). Use A Simple Visual Style

Instead of using a complicated 3D animation style or detailed 2D cel animation style for your video, using a simpler visual style can help you greatly reduce your production cost.
