We create detailed animations depicting accurate and clear installation of your products along with best building practices. Our staff has extensive experience in construction, architecture, and the building world. We’ve been creating animations since 2008, and every work effort is customized to fit your needs.
People find it much easier to grasp how to use a product correctly when provided with a detailed video, in place of written pages of instructions. Animations transcend language barriers and help to reduce costly installation mistakes. In animations, we’re able to specifically tailor the viewpoint and timing to emphasize critical moments and special elements to simplify the installation instructions and make it more comprehendible.
On average, one animation takes about two months to complete, following this process:
|Project Inquiry (explore requirements, review documentation, outline animation process)||1 Week|
|Contracting (proposal, work order, deposit)||1-2 Weeks|
|Pre-production (project outline, storyboarding, cost estimate)||1-2 Weeks|
|Client review (sign-off on storyboard and cost estimate)||1 Week|
|Animation (preliminary artwork and proof copy)||4-6 Weeks|
|Client review (acceptance of proof copy)||1 Week|
|Project delivery (issuance of final payment and delivery of final production rendering)||1 Week|
Final work is delivered electronically in High Definition (1080p) format. Our files are provided in the format requested by the client (generally MP4) so they are ready to use on almost any platform and can be easily uploaded to your website, YouTube, displayed at trade shows or used in presentations.
Ci is very cost-competitive. All of our work is done in-house, and we own all our own rendering equipment. Cost of an animation will vary according to length, and complexity.
The cost to produce a series of animations can be reduced if each of the animations uses shared elements
While our animations communicate the concepts very well without any sound, voiceover or background music can easily be added and Ci offers a variety of voices.
Ci can translate any text content, and provide voiceover translation services in any language.
We can provide high-resolution images taken directly from the animation and can add callouts to use in your written installation guides and materials.
Our animations have been very well received by audiences all across the world. Customers love the easy to follow directions, and say that the animated installation is much easier to follow than standard written instructions.
