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 you can provide

    We should now have enough information about your project to create a proposal that sums up the work involved at an agreed budget and deadline

Once we receive your approval to proceed, you can leave the following to us:


  3. SCRIPT (if required)
  4. STORYBOARD (if required)

So you have an idea- the next big thing-CONGRATULATIONS! What next? For me as an engineer, it's always a meeting with Roger from Aarons CGI. Why? Animations are the ultimate minimum viable product (MVP) for many concepts, and with Aarons CGI I always get three times the value compared to platform giggers (like Fiverr).How so?1. Amazing Quality: The finished product is always amazing in terms of the rendering and the physics (if it involves movement). In most instances, the animation was better than I imagined (and I have a good imagination!).2. Fresh Eye Review: Unlike job-shops, Roger doesn't just simply animate your emailed storyboard; he becomes an extended part of your team for a time, making the effort to get down in the weeds in order to understand your concept/vision as well as your message and the intended audience. This review process (go slow to go fast) is of incredible value because it makes you think things through (forces slow thinking), and the innocent questions raised by Roger are the same as your viewer will have. In many instances, the concept has been materially improved as a result! Let's face it, inventors are often blind to the needs and perspectives of their "customers".3. One Take: This is where the ‘go slow to go fast’ strategy pays off with the final step proceeding quickly and efficiently in a single step, to the agreed schedule. How? Simple, all the issues have been ironed out beforehand (step 2). Seemingly cheaper options usually work out much more expensive and take longer to do, because you do the job more than once (typically 3 iterations).So...Got a concept? Take my advice, the next stop should be Roger for an MVP with 3x the value!

I worked closely with Roger Aarons from Aarons CGI on several animation projects while working with Rio Tinto to clearly explain some complex innovation concepts in the mineral processing space. Roger's animations were excellent and well-received across senior management. I highly recommend Roger's work.

Roger Aarons is an outstanding professional and his work is first class. He provided much value for us to explain our technology and was a pleasure to deal with in the various version changes that were necessary. We will certainly have no hesitation in engaging his services again. Kind Regards. Steve White. Energy Storage Pty Ltd and TORC Clean Energy.

Over the last few years Roger Aarons, from Aarons CGI, has created video animations for a number of medical projects I have been involved in. I have always found Roger a pleasure to work with and his work has been of the highest quality. Roger is very quick to pick up new technical material and his attention to detail is excellent. He has always been quick to respond to my questions and comments, and prompt in delivering content. I would be extremely happy to use Roger’s services again in the future and I would recommend Aarons CGI to others without hesitation.
