With the growing popularity of motion graphics, one style rose above the rest - isometric animation. This style of video became a popular choice due to its ability to show large swathes of information on screen at one time. A trait critically important for cloud-based, cybersecurity, and SaaS technology companies who need complex diagrammatic animations to explain their softwares and services. At Levitate, we’ve fully embraced this style of animation - having produced hundreds over the past few years. Just see for yourself!
Isometric Animation Process
Isometric videos typically take between 8-12 weeks, beginning with scripting. A script is like the foundation of your video - everything must be built around it. Once you determine that the messaging is perfect, we’ll begin developing 2-3 styleframes from your script.
A styleframe is a picture that shows you what the rest of your video could look like. You can think of it like a test image - where we can explore what colors, styles, text, characters, and compositions might work best for your video. The overall look and feel of your styleframes will help us craft the rest of your video. We’ll ask for feedback on these styleframes to understand what’s working and what isn’t. Once approved, we’ll take that style and apply it across a full storyboard.
A storyboard is a sequence of static pictures that show you what your whole video will look like. Our goal is to discuss the content of each frame so that any necessary changes can be made before animating. Once approved, it’s time to make it move!
Our animators will begin the process of adding motion to those images. The next delivery you’ll receive is a full version of your video - but we don’t stop there! You’ll have a chance to give us feedback so the final video you receive is exactly as ordered. And voilà! Your video is complete and ready to go!
