WHAT ARE TEASER ANIMATIONS

Teaser animations are short videos or graphics that introduce or “tease” a product, service, or upcoming event to the audience. They are designed to engender excitement, curiosity, and anticipation while also promoting a brand or message. These animations can be used on websites, social media platforms, or other digital channels to grab the attention of viewers and encourage them to engage further with the content.

This method helps in attracting customers, boosting foot traffic, and driving online visits during key sales periods such as product launches or holiday seasons.

HOW ARE TEASER ANIMATIONS CREATED?

Concept Development and Scripting

Start by brainstorming and defining the theme and key message of the teaser. Write a concise script that outlines the sequence of scenes, and develop storyboards to visually guide the animation, setting a blueprint for what is to come.

STEP 01

Asset Creation

Construct 3D models for all characters, environments, and objects involved in the animation. Apply detailed textures to these models for a realistic appearance and set up the necessary rigs for any movable components, preparing them for animation.

STEP 02

Animation

Animate the models by setting keyframes to define movements and use simulations for realistic behaviours of complex elements like cloth or particles. Set up the appropriate lighting to establish mood and position cameras strategically to capture the scenes effectively.

STEP 03

Rendering and Post-Production

Process the final images or sequences through rendering, ensuring each frame is visually rich. In post-production, composite various elements together, edit the sequence for smooth flow, and integrate sound design to enhance the overall impact of the teaser.

Firstly, to begin a project, clients provide all the information required. For product visualisations, we require things such as drawings, design specifications, sketches, mood boards or other type of information you may have.

To clarify, we will check all of the content the clients have provided and ask for more details if necessary. In addition, a meeting, phone call or Teams call is always beneficial. To sum up, this helps avoid any misconception and allows us to shorten turnaround times for 3D animation services.

We start working as soon as we understand all of the details the task requires, and time frames have been agreed by both parties. Our 3D artists keep in constant contact with the clients throughout this process, with regular updates.

After that, we present animated grey previews to you for comments and review and finally make the adjustments.

The client accepts the drafts for final rendering.

Finally, we present the 3D animation, after we have completed post-production in high resolution with full quality lighting, reflections, glossiness, and materials.
