Character Animation

Character Animation Service

Video Caddy (VCD) offers Character Animation Services that brings emotion, expression, personality, and motion to animated characters and creatures. We assist animation and film studios, game developers, broadcasters, social media content creators, marketing and advertising companies, and a broad variety of other industries in all of their character animation needs. Using Adobe Character Animator and After Effects, 3D Max, and Maya, our technically savvy and artistically minded animators apply 2D and 3D animation techniques to turn concepts, sketches, or storyboard characters into entertaining and exquisitely rendered animation.

VCD uses industry animation principles and the natural physics of movement to tell a story through the character, distinguishing them with the memorable gestures, body language, and facial features that establish remarkable character sequences.

VCD’s Digital Character Animation Services

With a plethora of animation services, VCD is able to turn character concepts or sketches into brilliantly animated characters that reflect the exceptional quality standards our team is known for. Services include, but aren’t limited to:

Concept Art Creation

AWA evolves characters out of the animation design process to create unforgettable main, secondary, and support characters out of original concepts. We can work from the most simplistic of ideas, or design from the ground up, always relying on research and relevant reference points for better character design.

Character Development

AWA artists understand the complexity and depth of character development and understand the nuances of artistic elements that bring life to character personalities. We capture the right physical appearance for the character that helps to define who they are and what their unique story is.

Character Modeling and Rigging

AWA brings characters to life by creating physical features, skeletons, and bone structures for more realistically animated bodies and faces. Our modeling techniques focus on symmetry, simplicity, and mesh-toggling, while our rigging techniques focus on animating individualized areas of the character. Perfect for application in game engines, and 2D or 3D animated videos.

2D Character Animation

AWA creates hand-drawn characters through top digital software like Autodesk’s Sketchbook Pro, depicting subtle motion changes for a fluid sequential playback. We utilize a minimal color scheme and lack of shadowing that’s typical of the genre, though unlimited custom variations are available depending on the character requirements.

3D Character Animation

AWA follows a three-stage process of modeling the character into a scene or background, creating the character layout and 3D animation, motion layer editing, and rendering using sophisticated computer graphics. Our approach to 3D character animation production ensures characters have depth, consistency across multiple perspectives, and subtle lighting effects.

Benefits of Partnering with a Leading
Character Animation Company

Companies in the U.K., North America, Australia, Europe, and the U.S. have benefited from VCD’s creativity across both traditional and digital animation for over a decade:

  • Realistic Movement Cycles

    Ensure your animated characters illuminate the screen with a realistically rendered walk and run cycles, traversal animations, actions, reactive movements, poses, and motion-based personality quirks.

  • Synchronize Audio

    AWA can smoothly synchronize pre-existing audio, voiceovers, or dialogue to the character animation for a fluid, believable appearance of vocal expression.

  • Niche Animation Formats

    AWA can digitally animate niche or specialized formats, such as comic books or manga art, using a digital approach to classic frame-by-frame animation that retains the raw and old-school charm of the original format.

  • Natural Motion for 3D Characters

    Receive 3D character animation with movements based on real gravitational principles, physical build, balance, and movement follow-through for a more natural result.

  • Unlimited Styles

    VCD works closely with our clients to carefully select from any number of animation styles to suit their vision and the personality of the character, from stop-motion and claymation to cutout, vector art, and flat design animation.

  • Organic Face and Speech Animation

    Speech will not look erratic or irregular with VCD’s observational approach to face animation, for a more organic, emotional affect for character conversations, songs, monologues, and other vocal verbalizations.
