Sports stadium animation is a medium that requires knowledge of various viewing limitations as well as the demands of the audience.  Many sports teams operate on a tight budget.  Our many years of experience creating animations for various sports venues gives us a unique perspective in meeting client demands.  Whether it be sponsor game animations, play/goal animations, player and game stats animations, team intros, or any other animation you require, we can create what you need and add entertainment value in the process.  We offer a full gamut of animation services including concept development and story-boarding, modeling, surfacing, animation setup, rigging, technical direction, and rendering.

The Process

How do we get the work done?  We consult with you to define the scope of work, giving recommendations within the project’s time, budget, and technical constraints.   After contract negotiation, we conceptualize, create, and develop any custom or proprietary content.  We script and/or storyboard the presentation for client review.  When applicable, we then model, surface and test render all objects used in a scene for client review.  Next we set up the actual scene by placing environments, objects and other elements.  We next keyframe or motion-capture animate all moving scene elements and test render for timing and aesthetics.  After final client approval, the scene is rendered and sent to editing.  Final touches like music, audio, 2D compositing, and VFX are added during editing.  The end result is a quality digital movie that can be output to many different digital or analogue formats for final delivery.
