Video animation company

Five billion videos are watched on YouTube every day and that’s just one platform. So how do you make yours stand out?

Animation lets you make your point clearly and emphatically. You can make it work for any audience, it’s engaging, and it’ll make people remember your brand.

And it’s great for tricky topics that most people would struggle to understand.

We’re a talented team of illustrators, strategists, animators, writers, designers and AI prompt engineers. We’re not woolly and we don’t produce fluff.

We make content that elevates your brand, simplifies the complex, and delivers results. We’ve worked with global companies like Johnson & Johnson, Microsoft, Confused.com, Siemens and Gatwick Airport.

Why use animation?

Eye-catching animations reel in sales, turn heads in the direction of your brand, and educate your crowd in the simplest way possible. And, they help your message stick in people’s minds.

Clarify the complex.

With animation, you get to script, storyboard and edit in a way that’s much harder to replicate when producing live-action videos. This makes animations perfect for explainer videos – for example.

Animation mirrors who you are as a brand.

Picture this: an animated video that picks up every thread of your brand’s guidelines, weaving in your unique visual elements. It becomes a natural part of your brand’s world, snugly fitting into all your marketing channels.

Bring your business to life for investors.

Show them, in no uncertain terms, the challenges you’re tackling and the solutions you provide. It’s all about lighting that spark of recognition — the ‘aha!’ moment when they see the unmistakable value you’re adding.

Boosting engagement and driving sales starts here.

Animation delivers clear, compelling narratives – watch interest in your venture sky-rocket.

“Car insurance is quite a dry subject and some of the information can be quite difficult to get across. So we worked with Definition to produce some animated videos that explain our products to our customers. The end result was fantastic and Definition were brilliant to work with.”

I’m Emma, your on-call animator. Sketching, drawing, and bringing stills to life, this is my creative cosmos. Whether it’s detailed illustrations or minimalist lines, my goal is to transform ideas into engaging animation, one frame at a time.

My animation adventure includes crafting ads, explainers, and communication videos that speak volumes. Each project brings new challenges, and overcoming these is my speciality. There’s a deep sense of satisfaction I derive from knowing that my animations serve as vital vehicles driving businesses closer to their goals, enabling them to connect with audiences more effectively.

Our process for award-winning animated video production

Research

We’ll start by having a chat with you about what you’re looking for. And, we’ll get to know your business in a genuine way. We’ll speak to your team and delve into the details so that we can make a video that not just reflects your brand, but truly amplifies it. We’ll also use this stage to get super clear on goals.

Getting creative

From there, we’ll bounce some ideas around in a creative workshop and come up with concepts to present back to you. They might be utterly serious, thought-provoking, zany… depending on what your style is.

Production and delivery

Then, we’ll crack on with storyboarding, scripting and style design. We’ll put together an animation that achieves exactly what it needs to, and that highlights your brand at its very best. Whether it’s character-based, motion graphics or abstract, 2D or 3D, we’ve made thousands of animations. So you’re in safe hands.

Amplification

Once we’ve delivered your video, we can work our video marketing strategy magic, to make 100% sure that your new animation delivers as promised.

Production tips from a video animation company

You can’t make a good video without a good brief. That means knowing everything from your target audience and timelines to your wider marketing strategy – including KPIs and budget. But don’t worry if you don’t already have a comprehensive brief before you meet us: our expert producers can help you create one.

In a good animation script, the story always comes first. But you also want to sneak in a bit of corporate messaging. Luckily, we have a team of bona-fide language specialists who’ll craft a script that can do just that (seriously, they’ve been writing and exploring language for years (and years). They even named ‘Ocado’ and ‘The London Eye’.

Music, voiceover and sound effects heighten visuals and emotions in ways that your audience can’t even explain. We have a database of over 30,000 exceptional voice-over artists to choose from (not to mention all of the different ways that we’re integrating AI into our animation production process). And a talented musician (she once played Glastonbury!) on the team to help you smash the soundtrack.

We know about production, but you know your company. That’s why we involve you every step of the way. We’ll show you how characters, objects and environments will look in the final animation. And we always make sure to give you a short preview, in case you have any last-minute thoughts before the final version.

We’ve honed and refined our production process (and are continuing to do so), and we’re pleased to say it’s pretty slick. We never forget the important little details like licensing music, saving to your preferred file formats and tailoring different versions to different channels.

 

How much does a video animation cost?
