If you’re reading this, I’m going to assume you’re not an animator (they probably know what’s more and less time-consuming already). This blog is going to outline, without the jargon, what can drive up the price of an animation, and how you can avoid this (or at least be aware of what you’re asking for and why it’s potentially costly).
Let’s start by first getting to grips with what we (as in me, in this blog) mean by animation. Animation is an umbrella term for making something inanimate move, this could be you making your pen dance across your laptop, through to a full Pixar blockbuster. I’m going to be talking about 2D motion graphics, cut-out style, and character animation—these are the most commonly used styles of animation in explainer-type videos and online learning.
