Monster & Bear 3D Animation FAQ

3D animation involves creating 3D models of characters, objects and environments, and controlling their movements within a simulated 3D space. Instead of drawing a series of images to imply movement, as in 2D animation, we use a simulated camera within our 3D environment to capture our characters and objects from the perspective of our chosen camera position. And instead of drawing points of light and shadow, we can use a lighting engine to generate light and shadow within every scene automatically.

Without getting too complex, what this means for our clients is that 3D animation involves quite a bit of setup time to build every environment and character as a standalone model. But once this laborious process is complete, 3D opens up huge possibilities. If you don’t like the lighting within a scene, we can reposition our simulated light source, and the new lighting will be applied to our 3D models automatically.

If you want to make a change to the position of our virtual camera and view the whole scene from a different angle, this is a relatively easy change because the models already exist within a 3D space, like in a computer game. If you tried changing the angle of a shot in 2D, you would be back to square one drawing the scene again from scratch!

At Monster & Bear we can take you from concept to completion. We are a full service 3D animation studio offering services across the pre-production, production and post-production phases of 3D animation.

We can help with:

 

  • Scriptwriting
  • Conceptualising and designing the storyboards for your 3D animation.
  • Developing concept art for your production.
  • Animating and refining based on your feedback.
  • Creating backgrounds, characters and visual effects.
  • 3D compositing and applying visual effects to your filmed content.
  • Providing background music, foley and editing.
  • Delivery of your final 3D animation with the perfect output specs for your chosen medium e.g. TVC, socials, website etc.

We’re sorry to say it but yes, when it comes to 3D animation, planning is everything! However that doesn’t mean that the planning isn’t lots of fun. It just means that rather than barrelling in headfirst and trying to fully animate something and then see if you like it, we start with much smaller steps to make sure everyone’s on the same page.

Basically the more we know about your goals for the animation, the target audience, the output platform, and the visual style, the more we can customise our animation concepts to meet your needs. Then we can start making mockups and sketches for you, as well as rough storyboards, so you start to get a clear picture of exactly what your animation will look like before we start.

This extra planning in the beginning saves us so much time and energy in the long run, and helps to keep our services efficient, in terms of both timeframes and budget.

At Monster & Bear, our 3D animation process is highly iterative. We value clear communication with our clients at every step, so there’s plenty of mind blowing 3D animation going on, but there are no surprises. We’ve gone through these creative processes before, so we are always here to guide you through it. At the same time, we also understand that no two clients are the same, and no two animations are the same.

We want to create a system that will work for you. Some of our clients know exactly what they’re looking for, and we can dive in and start providing that. But sometimes, you might not know what you like until you see it, which is absolutely fine as well. Because we are an end-to-end production company, we can come up with unique concepts to meet your brief, and supply scripts and storyboards to help you visualise all the possibilities before you.

Only once you’re happy with the concepts and designs we put forward do we start full animation, and we think you’ll agree, you can see the benefits of this approach in the final results.

Why are 3D animation videos useful?

At Monster & Bear we believe there is no end to the potential scope and reach a great 3D animation video can achieve.

There is no message we cannot deliver and no world we can’t build from the ground up using our animation video production services. 3D animation can be photorealistic, or cute and cartoonish, or quirky, or completely out of this world.

 

Just imagine your message developed any way you want it, without real world limitations like location permits, safety supervisors, or lighting budgets. Even gravity is optional!

 

Using our specialist in-house 3D animators, you can turn dry, complicated messaging into engaging, thoughtful, eye popping and dare we even say…fun video content that is useful across a variety of sectors including:

  • TV Commercials
  • Government messaging videos
  • Public service announcements
  • Brand films
  • Educational
  • Health & Medical
  • Legal services
