ABOUT THE CARTOON ANIMATION

THE CARTOON ANIMATION IS A FILM

An animated cartoon is a film for the cinema, television or computer screen, which is made using sequential drawings. This method is also called traditional animation creation method. This technique is high quality and labor intensive but slow to produce, mostly made drawn by hand. It includes art, creative work and character creation.

For starting the production we need a brief and some production guidance.

WHY CARTOON ANIMATION?

In the modern world of online media, we live in, there is almost no business field that doesn’t use cartoon animation for presenting products, ideas, business opportunities, education, projects, etc. That’s why cartoon animation is a significant part of Flame Studio’s portfolio – it is a film animation, designed for the general public and it can be broadcasted online, on television or screened in cinemas.

What distinguishes hand-drawn or so called traditional animation from the other media products is its uniqueness. For realization of every new project artists and animators create a unique character that would be the most appropriate one to perform the story line or present the product, subject of the project. Traditional animation is drawn by hand by artist or animator, image by image and frame by frame.

There are few methods of creating cartoon animation

• The traditional method that requires drawing many images that follow each other with minimal difference in the motion, in order to recreate movement;
• Latest technologies and software to create a cartoon
The ready images are displayed in rapid sequence, usually 24, 25, 30 or 60 fps. For one minute video of this kind 1440 separate images are needed. The technique of drawing image sequences is of a very high quality, but it takes substantial amount of time, because of the large volume of work, done by hand.

In the process of realizing a cartoon animation project, new characters are created after preset description and detailed storyboard, that defines the key scenes and moments. The number of companies using cartoon animation to advertise their products and services, but also to create a face for itself increases. In the last years many products, released on the global market, are presented by cartoon characters that become the face of the respective company.
