When it comes to stop-motion animation many people share the same perception – it’s expensive and it can take years to make.

Thankfully that’s not always the case. Technology and software has come a long way since the days of Ray Harryhausen’s Jason and the Argonauts and even Aardman’s Chicken Run. At A+C we are a one-stop shop for stop-frame animation, providing creative support, model making , animation and post all under one roof.

So what does all this mean? Well it all equates to lower production costs and faster turn-around times. We can produce animated content in as little as a day with full character animation taking the same time or less time than your standard CGI commercial.

But with stop-motion being uncharted territory for many, what can you expect from a typical production?

Following the success of our post how to write an animation brief we’ve put together a linear guide, outlining key milestones and sign-offs that occur in a stop-motion production. These include:

  • Scheduling
  • Creative Development
  • Designs
  • Storyboard
  • Animatic
  • Model-making
  • Studio set-up
  • Animation
  • Post
  • Delivery
