Switch Animated videos are created from script and image concepts, created in conjunction with the client.
Our illustration team designs different styles for the characters that will be in the animated video, as well as a variety of styles for elements like text and backgrounds.
After our scriptwriters complete the script, a full storyboard is created. A storyboard is a series of rough sketches that outline the actions that will happen onscreen while each line of the script is read.
Switch Video uses Flash to animate the style of drawing selected, adding music, sound effects and voice-over. While we do use the Flash program to create motion, keep in mind that before it gets to that point we must draw every single frame of action. It’s a very labor-intensive process (that we love!), and it’s the reason the animated video creation process is a full five phases.
SwitchBoard is our unique version of the whiteboard style video. This style has an academic look and feel, with crisp and clean lines. Switchboard is complicated to create, however, the end result is very flexible and modifiable.
Created using vector based software such as Flash and Illustrator, the SwitchBoard style is extremely scalable, allowing us to be more creative with transitions as we are not limited by pixel count.
Claymation videos are one of many forms of stop motion animation and each animated piece in the scene is a clay figure. Each movement/motion is a new shot and all the shots are recorded on film or digital media and played back in rapid succession.
Claymation videos are incredibly time-consuming to produce but the end result is memorable, powerful video.
