Many factors concur to the planning of an animation. Sometimes the animation is made entirely of 3d animated objects, whereas some other times the actual animation is completed by visuals not created in 3D software. Our rate for 3D medical animation is between 200-300 Euros per second of final animation footage. For multiple animations, we organise a flat rate and negotiate with the client.
If you have a narration script in mind, you can roughly calculate yourself. A standard technical narration recording is made up of about 125 words per minute. A 200-word script would create an animation that would run approximately 1 minute and 36 seconds, and so the cost would be about 20,000 Euros. Even if you do not plan on having recorded narration, a written script is important to estimate the animation’s length. Usually, animations without narration run faster than a narrated animation. A list of detailed steps will provide with enough information to estimate the runtime and provide you with a project estimate.
Sure, we can work with your budget and combine other animations techniques including text and simple graphics to help you to achieve your goals. In that case, we need to assess your budget needs and goals and make our proposal.
It very much depends on the script available, complexity and client responsiveness. Rule of thumb is to deliver a finished animation in a time span from a 1.5 month.
Most of our clients provide 3D CAD models of their medical devices. This allows the highest level of device modeling accuracy, to these models we apply textures and create the desired functionality of your device. Or, we can create your medical device from photos, physical devices, or other references, on a separate fee and needs to be estimated.
We work with your medical experts throughout the creation process to ensure it meets or exceeds their standards. Our experience in custom animation, our 3D models, and our collaborative process ensure a medically accurate custom animation for your target audience.
Many of our clients use still frames for printed marketing materials, or other purposes and this usage is freely permitted with our timeless use license. We can also provide higher resolution images from our 3D files at a low cost. We can also help you build printed materials, applications, and websites.
Our animation fees are tailored to include a timeless license which allows clients to use the produced work with a variety o purposes and within all scopes, such as usage in printed materials websites, applications. The only restriction not included in our agreements is to resell the works, for this, there has to be an additional agreement.
Some of our clients require a copyright transfer. We provide this by charging an additional fee, which is generally fully included in our timeless license. The requirement for this to happen is the development of unique material and a unique style able to protect the nature of the copyright.
