How the production
process works
Pre-production
Scheme design
An optional step for more complex animations, a scheme might feature one character and a partial background to define the style for the rest of the production.
Storyboard
Begins with a rough working document which allows for some changes. A storyboard can also identify what will be hard to do, blow the budget or interfere with a smooth production.
Production
Artworking
Defining the character style, colouring up the pencils from preproduction, ensuring the transition from drawn design to model is as expected.

Finished Animation
