2D animation

2D animation is seen everywhere, particularly online. Delivering a film using animation rather than live action is highly effective and is just as suitable for explaining the science behind prescription pharmaceuticals as it is for understanding virtual networks or how clinical trials work.

With no limit to creativity, animation enables you to achieve the perfect audience experience. Indeed, the process of briefing an animation – creating the storyboard, the script, choosing the style, number of assets to animate, can act as an extremely useful discipline in defining the story of your product and really finessing the messaging. Tailoring the images to your messages, animation gives you the opportunity to create a strong emotional connection with a clear call to action.

Box Bear can animate in a wide range of creative styles, and our studio team will help you choose the perfect style for your messages. Our designers will provide designs and storyboards that help you visualise the finished film. So no matter what style, stop motion, cell, vector, motion graphics or even just a hand-drawn gist, Box Bear can help you bring our products and messages to life. talk to one of our animation specialists about your requirements.
