Motion Graphics in Vancouver Done Right

Motion graphics and animation continue to be in demand in Vancouver

Motion graphics Vancouver is still a come-on among viewers.

Studies are clear and science has weighed in — animation and graphic videos are here to stay. They grab attention with higher conversion rates and deliver complex subjects in less time and with more precision.

In the age of Pixar and Disney, the horde of Millennials growing up fancying over any moving picture or hand-drawn animation has caused a continued demand for this style.

The ease of control over the narrative script is one of the main reasons why all of the graphical arts of moving images continue to amaze many people — young and old alike. This is the reason why motion graphics Vancouver will always be around.

So if you’re a talented brand owner with a background in marketing, crafting a powerful sales pitch is definitely in your DNA. And many owners of companies that specialize in motion graphics and animation have a great sense of purpose and intuitively know what their viewers desire. I love owners like this because it reduces complexity though it is not required.

How video graphics and animation are made

A common commercial animation workflow is to ask a variety of questions about the brand and product. But the most crucial element is the vision, which is a high-level strategy and an exciting idea that often drives an entire company.
The same vision can be used to align any marketing and communications, including graphic videos.
After a strong vision has been established and some clear success outcomes have been determined, we are now ready to start crafting a powerful concept and script.

When it comes to commercial workflow, here’s a quick step-by-step.

  • Start with an inquiry
  • Call for a meeting where you ask a series of questions and carefully research the company’s brand, their vision, and objectives. 
  • Build out their entire production on paper including visuals, storyboards, scripting, and any assets or images. 
  • Be ready to make recommendations on style and genre. 
  • Create a production book document where you record every single element of the production to be reviewed by any team member or contractors involved.

What makes a powerful motion graphics script

Some of my favorite questions to ask when crafting a motion graphics Vancouver script is to start it with a problem. After all, it is from exploring pain and challenges with which we can discover the designed solution.

Exploring product benefits and features often come next with a summary. From there, we move into the guarantee, credibility, and call for action. This is commonly referred to as the sales process.

Styles and genres of motion graphics

Although there are hundreds of styles and genres for motion graphics video production, finding a great look and feel is more about alignment with the brand and any established style.
The style and look of a production mimic the brand’s energy and is an extension of established marketing.

Most clients expect to use motion graphics videos on YouTube, Vimeo, web, social, blog pages and even email so the genre and style of any motion graphics video must fit the brand’s energy.

One secret to finding a great style is by working with motion graphics producers who specialize in illustration and design. A creative motion graphics artist will have illustration experience and the ability to build a look and feel for a brand.

For over 10 years, our motion graphics Vancouver company has been producing animated videos for broadcast, web and social media. Our projects can start at $1,000 or $2,000 and range as large as $40,000 plus.
