The Animation Industry is moving forward
Technology is ever evolving in the animation industry. Let’s go back to over 80 years when it is long ago since the principles of animation were mainly set out by the Disney studio. Since the 1930s a frame by frame technique for storyboards was being used. Now we have computer generated images where scanning, colouring, and digital compositing have become the norm and studios have become more technically advanced editing in 2D and 3D.
Animation for business
A significant number of businesses are beginning to rely on animation using explainer videos to get their message across to audiences. By having an Explainer video as part of your marketing strategy for your product/service it can provide a whole host of benefits. Using animation not only allows the audience to engage more with your business but can also open the door to establishing a greater presence in the marketplace both nationally and internationally.
