Our Animated Video Production Process
At Zip In Media, we’re here to help you achieve your goals, no matter what those goals may be. We’re with you form beginning to end, working to make sure that every single video that we create meets or exceeds your expectations.
There are several approaches we take to make sure that you’re happy with our work. But the core of our success is found through our production process – a process that we use to help make sure that we’re moving forward with your work. It’s why most of our videos are able to be completed in only 3 to 4 weeks, and although some animation can take longer, this production process enables us to work efficiently and seamlessly with your organization.
The success of the video happens long before the first clip has been shot or, in the case of animated video production, the first click on the mouse. It starts with pre-production, where the video is planned to the near-millisecond in order to match your goals.
Zip In Media handles the entirety of pre-production. We gladly accept as much involvement as you’d like, but our role is to handle every component of the video, and that is what we are more than happy to do in the early stages. For animated video, this may include:
- Hiring and Managing Voice Actors, and More
For videos that integrate any live action components, we manage crews, makeup artists, interview questions – we handle every task that is needed to help you make sure that your project is completed in a way that will help you reach your production goals.
The way that we manage pre-production is ultimately what creates a great final product.
Animated video is a bit different from other forms of video, in that it doesn’t typically have a “production day” since the clips are created over time by a team of animators and designers. Still, animation is the sum of multiple parts. If we have voice actors coming in, or we need to add any live footage, or we have a dedicated day to work on some aspect of the production, that will take place on its own specific time slot in order to be as efficient as possible with your video.
If you choose to work with Zip In Media on other forms of video beyond just animation, then you’ll find that we generally set aside a time for production where all the planning that we completed during the pre-production springs into action.
Similarly, our post-production services for animated video are slightly different than our typical post-production services for the same reason. We encourage you to check out our video production page, where you can find more information on all the different types of video that we create and how our production and post-production services work for live action video.
But we still perform many of the same tasks with our animated video post-production services as well. For example:
- We provide you with your own dedicated project management login to monitor the status of your video and provide feedback at different intervals.
- We put all the animation that we’ve created together and send it to you for feedback. Once we get your feedback, we start integrating text, graphics, and more.
- Once we’ve been given your edits and you’ve had a chance to review the final video, we send it to you in whatever file format you prefer.
Animation is often created according to the storyboard that was approved during pre-production, so there are typically few surprises and you’ll have a good idea of what the narrative will be before we even begin. But we also want you to be happy, so if you do have any feedback during the post-production phase, we’ll discuss it with you and make sure that the final product is edited to your liking.
Another way that Zip In Media stands out in the field of video production is that we’re available to keep helping you even after the project is over. We sometimes call this our post-post-production service.
What good is a video if no one will be able to see it? That’s why we are able to offer video marketing support, whether it’s hands on by integrating the video into existing or new campaigns, or hands off by providing feedback to help you better understand what is needed to market your video to the public.
Your success is our success, so we are available to provide you with services or tips based on your needs to ensure that the final animated video is being used and seen correctly.
Why Choose Zip In Media?
There are a lot of different animation video production companies out there. But Zip In Media tries to offer something more. What we do that we believe our clients especially appreciate is that we consider ourselves more than some “third party” video production company.
Instead, what we do, whether you’re on a monthly contract or are looking for only one video, is we run our business as though it is a part of your existing company – almost as though you have your own video production crew working for your business.
We do this in many ways:
- Getting to know you as a company, including your goals and brand identity.
- Putting all of our effort into ensuring your success.
- Creating relationships that help make us feel like part of the team.
But perhaps the main reason that our clients see us as their own video marketing department is that we work with you the same way that you’d work with your own crew.
Many of our clients come to us with nothing more than a goal, telling us what their needs are. We then take those needs and use our expertise to figure out the best approach to video and how to create one that helps them achieve that goal.
Other clients we have want to provide more feedback, where they have thoughts and ideas for how the video should look and what they’d like included. When you have that vision, we happily accept that feedback as well.
Like any part of your company our role is to fit in when your existing operations, and while we handle all the work independently, we do so not separately from you but in conjunction with you and the way that you want to manage the video production process. It’s why so many of our clients come to us not only for a video when they need it, but to provide them with ongoing monthly support with videos that continue to help them grow and thrive.
