QUOTATION AND PRODUCTION GUIDE

Producing an effective 3D animation project can involve many steps. We initially need your vision or concept to give us an idea of what you want to achieve. The following guide will help us achieve your goal:

Please provide the following:

  1. Rough outline or synopsis, including project length
  2. Supported images, logos, photos, sketches and/or video references of similar style and level of detail
  3. Script and/or storyboard (if possible)
  4. Project time-frame including estimated start and completion dates
  5. Budget (if possible)
  6. Any other information that will help us create a quote you will be happy with

AARONS CGI will then produce a proposal that sums up the work involved at an agreed budget and deadline.
