How did you select this vendor?
We were going through a lot animation studios based out of Mumbai. Finally we came across the Ripple Animation Website and we liked what we saw. They have an extensive catalogue of past projects. They seemed very clear about the process, the concepts, the execution and the art of video production. Thats where we finalised on Ripple Animation to get on board for our client.
Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.
Once Ripple Animation was on board, they gave us briefing document to understand what we were actually looking for.
Once they got the idea of our vision and mission for this animation video, the stages of scripting, art styles, voice over, storyboarding, animation styles, etc.all just went like a breeze. They knew exactly what we wanted and they were more than happy to oblige our suggestions and feedback at all stages of the video.
The final video came out exactly as we wanted it. It takes the audiences through the journey of our Client, their achievements, their expertise, their standing within the Security & Surveillance industry and much more. Ripple Animation truly helped us bring these accolades to life.
What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?
Ripple Animation has quite a team. They are proactive, they are diligent, and they are really good at what they do. Be it script writers, visualiser, animators. All seemed to be quite in sync with each other and that really helps them stand out in turn helping us complete this project smoothly.
The key people that we interacted on a daily basis are: Vivek and Madhura - The founders of Ripple Animation. They are very efficient business owners and they surely do run a tight ship. They realised that our client was venturing into a new territory with this animation video.
So with a lot of patience and calm, they helped streamline various processes which made it easier for us to interact with their team. It was great to see them involved in the project right since the beginning.
Smaran - The Animation Director. He is an absolute rockstar. He smoothly guided us through the various processes/stages of the animation video. His expertise in the field of animation/video production is unparalleled. He has excellent project management skills, no doubt.
Several rounds of feedback were managed virtually considering the Covid-19 pandemi which started during March 2020. But even amidst the lockdown, the Ripple Animation team beautifully managed this project remotely. Kudos!
