What was the scope of their involvement?
Pat Animation created a one minute animated video. Their team began with a storyboarding step, which involved finding a unique angle that would catch viewers’ attention. We mapped out the message we wanted to share with our potential customers and prospects. Their team did a lot of cutting to make sure it was concise yet powerful.
The next step involved going through illustration and design boards, in which the different scenes of the storyboard were visually translated. This allowed us to see what the likely animation would look like. The one minute video was broken down into about nine or ten core illustrations.
The third step was to get a voiceover made. Pat Animation got a bunch of different samples from voiceover providers in which they were reading the script to help us get the best fit. The next step was actually animating the video. Their team took the designs from the design board, integrating the voiceover, and completed the animation.
Our final step involved reviewing the video and looking at small things we could tweak. We ended up changing a couple of things in the animations that were very minor. The whole project took us about two weeks from start to finish.
What is the team composition?
Our main point of contact was Pat (Founder & Producer, Pat Animation). I know he has a bigger team, but it was good to interact primarily with him and not being bounced across different people.
How did you come to work with Pat Animation?
