What does compositing mean and how can it assist my video productions?

Video from a cell phone or production video camera is a 2D complete video on one layer.  Compositing means adding multiple layers and possibly effects to enhance the video production.  Transparency from green screen footage allows you to add animations, backgrounds graphics and logos etc.  Similar to "Photoshop" with photography, compositing is layers with video.

Animation services for our Calgary clients

How much does animation cost?

Animation costs for 2D and Illustrations

2D animation can be as simple as shapes being motion tracked to live video or as complex as a complete illustration. Animating, whether 2D or 3D is very hard to quote as typically there are many hours in development of the graphics. Once we understand what you are looking for, we will have a better idea of time and therefore cost.

Animation costs for 3D

3D animation has many steps such as modelling, image mapping, lighting and keyframing motion. Once these steps are all done, you need to render the frames to make a video. The end result can be so realistic you wouldn't realize it's 3D. We would be happy to talk about your ideas and make them come to life.

Your videos will sound incredible with support from our recording studio

Audio is a very important part of a video production. If you do a poor job on audio, it doesn't matter how nice the video looks, your brand will be represented poorly and often your message will not even be heard.

Our studio can provide voice-overs as well as complete custom audio soundtracks. If you plan to post your videos online you should consider custom soundtracks so all the content belongs to you. This is important if you plan to make money on advertising with your videos.
