Traditional Animation Process

As it comes from the name of this approach, traditional animation movies are videos all the frames of which are created manually. In practice, this means that a lot of time is needed to carefully draw all the movements of the characters and then put them together. So, the traditional animation process consists of the following stages:

  1. Concept development. On this initial stage, our task will be to develop the task of the movie and come up with a clear message (if it is intended for marketing purposes).
  2. Scriptwriting. Here we will be able to write several versions of the scenario to discuss and approve one of them.
  3. Storyboard is a set of hand-drawn sketches that in future will become a basis of every frame.storyboard
  4. Voice recording. This stage involves the choice of the voice, determination of the optimal pace of speaking and recording itself. It is also necessary to select and approve a soundtrack on this stage.
