An animation production goes through several stages until the final product is completed. Is starts in pre-production stages with design and concept art, where the atmosphere, feel and general design of characters, environments and assets is roughed out.
Production then starts with the creation of assets such as models, textures, backgrounds, materials, animation rigs, lighting set ups, etc. Animators use these assets to bring life into the characters and transform these inanimate assets into vivid, compelling stories.
Lighting and rendering artists then produce video sequences out of these digital animations, with the desired look and feel. Finally, necessary color corrections and tweaks are performed during post-production, and the video is combined with audio to produce the final movie.
The whole process is carefully supervised by art directors and each project’s director and producers.
