If a project is a journey from point A to point B, our process is a map and a set of tools for navigating the landscape. It allows everyone involved to know exactly where they are every step of the journey and it provides everyone involved a set of reliable tools for dealing with obstacles. We know no one wants to get stuck in the wilderness with an artist...

There are a lot of talented artists out there, but when you're deciding who to trust with your money and your business, artistic talent only counts for so much. For most customers, it’s equally important to have confidence that the quality of work promised will be delivered on time and on budget, with clear and easy communication from beginning to end. This is why in order to make sure all projects run smoothly and all customers stay happy, we have a well-defined process for delivering projects from start to completion. Our process allows us to repeatedly and reliably deliver the high-quality work our customers expect.

While no two projects are identical, most 3D animation projects follow a similar path. Projects move forward in an iterative fashion, which in simple terms means that things start out rough and over time get more and more refined until, in the end, we have a finely polished piece of work everyone can be proud of. The stages of this journey fit into three main categories: pre-production, production, and post-production. Not every project will involve every stage, but the general map looks something like this:

Ninety-nine out of 100 times, the issues that arise on a project stem from a lack of proper communication.  This is why communication plays such an important role in our process. We provide a clear picture of the project timeline and stages so that there are no surprises. We identify clear points on the timeline where deliverables and feedback are due. We also provide an easy and ready-to-use system for tracking and consolidating feedback so that all of our clients’ wishes are heard and dealt with in a way that leaves no room for surprises.
