Concept and Storyboards
The first step in the 3D animation process is the conceptualization of ideas and the creation of the storyboards that translate those ideas into the visual form.
It is the process of taking shape and molding it into a completed 3D screen. There are three basic methods you can use to create a 3D model.
3D model is designed, 2D images can be overlaid on it to add colors, designs, and textures. It is called mapping, and often the entirety of a model’s color comes from this.
Rigging is the process of setting up a controllable skeleton for the character that is intended for the animation. Drives the movement of a character to bring it to life.
The animation is the process of taking a 3D object and getting it to move. Animation comes in a few different flavors. There’s key frame animation.
Lighting is where a scene has the potential to come alive. Lighting can make a scene convincing, a scene that is virtually indistinguishable from the real life.
This process can be used to create the impossible perspectives, to zoom and pan and so much more. You can create an eye-in-the-sky in your scenes.
Rendering an image is the last step in the 3D Process, and is perhaps the most important part. This is where the graphics get ‘made’ and exported.
Compositing and Special VFX
Compositing includes everything from edit, touch-up and add special effects, where things explode, evaporate, morph, etc.
Music and Foley
Create music soundtracks, sound effects and accompaniment music to set the mood for animation, film, television and commercial productions.
Editing and Final Output
This is where the composited renders and music are compiled and edited to ensure that everything synchronized. Once satisfied, Final file exported.

What types of videos do we offer?
If it’s video, we can probably do it. Having a successful online video strategy means producing a lot of different types of video content, which is why we produce branding videos, TV spots, 3D Product Animated videos, 3D product videos, and more. We specialize in techniques including 3D animation, VFX, motion graphics, cel animation, stop motion, live action, papercraft, and screencasting. We’re also happy to try puppetry, claymation, and whatever else you might be in to.
How much does a typical video cost?
As usual, it depends. The cost is primarily related to the length, style, and complexity of the video. To give you a general idea though, most animated videos run between $1,500-25,000 depending on length, complexity, and style. For an accurate estimate, please get in touch and tell us more about your project.
What’s the typical process?
Once we’ve completed several rounds of intense, nail biting negotiations (kidding!), we’ll want to learn everything we can about you and your business. During this time you’ll complete our creative brief and spend some time with our team on a discovery call. After that, the entire Explainer Viz team will get together to brainstorm some creative ways to present your story. Typically this results in concepts for you with a killer idea. From there we’ll write a script and follow it up with a storyboard. Depending on the type of project – animation or post production. we’ll dive into production and polish things off with music and sound design.
Who owns the rights to the video?
The final video is yours. The full copyright details are outlined in our Video Services Agreement.
How do feedback and revisions work?
Creating a video is a team effort and your collaboration is key to producing a successful one. We look at our clients as the content experts, and in turn ask them to trust us as the creative experts. At each step in the process you’ll have time for consolidated feedback through our formal revision policy.
How does Explainer Viz work?
Explainer Viz works a little differently than your standard video production company. While all of the creative direction, scripting, and project management is typically done in-house, we collaborate with a collective of talented designers, animators, directors, voices, composers, and sound designers from around the world (and even some in our own office). Depending on what you’re looking for, we’ll assemble a mini team to bring it to life. This setup gives us the flexibility to provide an endless range of styles and continually produce fresh, unique creative work.
How long should my video be?
Given the abysmally short attention spans we have these days, we try to keep our videos as short and succinct as possible (30-120 seconds) while still conveying all of the necessary information. Often this means we can’t cover everything your heart desires. But that’s okay. A video is meant to give viewers just enough information to get them interested in taking the next step (e.g. requesting more info, signing up for a trial, etc).
What’s involved in getting started?
For starters, get in touch and let us know what you’re looking for. Once we have a good understanding of your goals and objectives, we’ll provide a formal estimate. Assuming you approve, we’ll send across a Video Services Agreement along with an initial invoice for 50% of the project total. We’ll also provide a creative brief and schedule a kickoff call with your dedicated project manager and creative director to review the materials before officially getting started.
How long does it take?
It depends. A good video takes time to produce, and we’re not one for cutting corners or sacrificing quality. On average you can expect 6-10 weeks for production time, which does not include the time required for your feedback and revisions, which can add an additional 3-4 weeks (on average), depending on the quantity and complexity of your requests, as well as your feedback turnaround time. Every project is unique, so the complexity will impact the time required for production. The rest depends on how quickly you, the client, provide feedback, how many revisions are requested, and how complex the changes are.
