Animation without sound effects
After the ‘go’ on the designs, it was finally our animators’ turn to start working. All of the individual shots were loaded into the animation software and then our magicians, animators, bring the visuals to life! We start with the bigger picture (shot to shot). This is followed by adjusting the rhythm to the text and visuals. Subsequently, this is also the phase in which the details of the animation are added. Such details are the caricatures’ expressions, movements by objects and backgrounds. The result: a first draft of the animation, with voice actors speaking the text but without sound effects.
For anyone who has turned the sound of in a horror movie, you know what a difference music and sound effects can make! Naturally, the animation is only really finished when our sound technician has worked his magic. Not convinced? Watch these videos and draw your own conclusion!
