Since its inception, animation has been a popular style of producing video for many reasons. It’s a great alternative when it’s too expensive to film on location or something that is complicated to envision. It's also an easy way to make your message more entertaining and to give it a little magic.

There are three main types of animation typically used for video projects:
Traditional animation is usually 2D, it’s a flat style of design where the illusion of movement is created using frame-by-frame manipulations of illustrations. This technique was commonly used in classic Walt Disney and Warner Bros. cartoons. In the past, traditional 2D animation was hand-drawn, though it is now created by computer in a style to imitate the look of hand-drawn animation.
A great deal of the animation produced today is done with computers in an immersive, 3D style similar to movies created by studios like Pixar and Illumination. This style of work gives the piece more depth and detail. Because this type of animation is created digitally, the possibilities of what can be rendered for your project is virtually limitless, depending on your time and budget.
Sometimes referred to as “claymation,” stop-motion animation involves animators creating physical models and the illusion of movement by shooting one frame at a time as the animators manipulate the object. This type of work is very time consuming and expensive, but the results are magic.
Animation studios often have their own distinct style that they bring to their projects. The best animators can help to storyboard your ideas and suggest techniques that will create vibrant and memorable imagery to leave an impact on your audience. When hiring, ask prospective animation companies if they would be willing to create storyboards for you and show you examples of similar work to review to demonstrate their vision for your projects.
