Motion Designer & Editor

Process


DISCOVERY

It all starts with a discovery call or virtual meeting where you and your team introduce me to the current project and your objectives to help me understand precisely what are your needs and most importantly how I can help you achieve your project's goals. I will use this simple pre-production questionnaire to guide our meeting.

PROPOSAL

Starting from there and considering all the elements discussed during the discovery call, I will draft a proposal and outline my role, the production timeline and deliverables. If you have any special requirements: are looking for unique visual style or need script developpement, it will be included in the proposal

WORK AGREEMENT

If you decide that we are a good fit we will then proceed with a statement of work and conditions.

SCRIPT DEVELOPPEMENT

This is specific to video explainers, my clients usually like to draft themselves a 2 minutes script based on existing project material and provide me with a final and approved draft. I will then use it as a blueprint for visual development and storyline. I will give some guidance about storytelling and length.

As an alternative I can also provide this as a service by introducing a professional script writer to the creative team.


STORYBOARD

Before animating I will draft all the key story points on a storyboard to outline the overall video structure. This step is important to keep everybody at the same page, that's when you give me feedback and I will adjust until we get to the perfect video structure.

DESIGN & STYLE FRAMES

I will then design or adapt existing graphic assets into a consistent look & feel and share with you for approval.

VOICE OVER & SOUNDTRACK

You need to find the perfect voice ? I have got you covered I will source and submit a pre-selection of professional potential voice-talent samples according to your criteria such as gender, native language and diction style, etc… Once you have selected the voice talent that would suit the best your project we will then proceed with the recording session.

The project requires a special mood for the music ? No problem I will find the best soundtrack.
