How Animation Studios Transform TV Commercials

Oct 27, 2023

Animation studios play a crucial role in transforming TV commercials into visually captivating and attention-grabbing advertisements. With their expertise, animation studios bring life to ideas and concepts that would otherwise be difficult to convey through traditional live-action ads. In this article, we will explore how animation studios achieve this transformation by leveraging their creativity, technical skills, and cutting-edge technology.

One of the primary advantages of using animation in TV commercials is their ability to create an immersive experience for viewers. Animation allows advertisers to transport audiences into fantastical worlds or depict impossible scenarios with ease. By doing so, they can capture viewers' attention more effectively than conventional methods.

As an example, Jumbla collaborated with Brand Collective to create a captivating TV commercial for Hush Puppies - Genius Fit. The commercial showcased the footbed's benefits through colorful scenes and a combination of abstract shapes and realistic textures. With Cinema 4D expertise, Jumbla brought the vision to life, resulting in a visually stunning and engaging commercial that truly captured what makes Hush Puppies special. The combination of stunning visuals and immersive sound effects effectively conveyed the essence of the brand and engaged audiences. 

To begin the process of transforming a commercial idea into an animated masterpiece, animators first collaborate closely with advertising agencies or clients themselves. This collaboration ensures that everyone involved understands the goals and objectives of the advertisement accurately. It also helps align creative visions from both parties before diving deep into production.

The next step involves developing a storyboard – a sequence of illustrations representing key moments within the commercial's narrative structure. Storyboarding serves as a visual blueprint that outlines each scene's composition while taking into account camera angles, character movements, dialogue delivery (if any), and other essential elements needed for storytelling coherence.

Once approved by all stakeholders involved in creating the ad campaign - including directors or producers, animators then move on towards designing characters who will populate these storyboards; ensuring every detail reflects what was initially envisioned during brainstorming sessions between artists or animators working alongside the writers, directors and producers.

After character designs are finalised, we move on to background creation following client guidelines and incorporating feedback received earlier in the project. The diverse teams collaborate to achieve the desired aesthetic quality. Throughout the process, we keep the specific target audience in mind, ensuring clarity and meeting expectations within the allocated timeframe and budget constraints.

Once the storyboard and character designs are approved, animators move on to the animation process itself. This involves bringing characters and backgrounds to life through a series of carefully crafted movements frame by frame.

Animation studios employ various techniques such as traditional hand-drawn animation or computer-generated imagery (CGI) to achieve desired results. Hand-drawn animation offers a unique charm with its fluidity and organic feel, while CGI provides more flexibility in terms of visual effects and realism.

Animators carefully create scenes in advertisements, following timing charts or storyboards for smooth transitions. Internal reviews take place at the studio level before sharing the work externally with clients and agencies, who closely oversee the project's progress. Necessary adjustments are made to deliver the intended message effectively and efficiently, all while adhering to strict deadlines set in the initial brief. 

Sound design also plays a crucial role in transforming TV commercials created by animation studios into engaging advertisements. Sound effects add depth and atmosphere to animations, while background music enhances the emotions evoked from the visuals presented on the screen. This amplifies the impact felt in viewers' hearts and minds the moment they encounter these ads. Whether on television screens, home cinema environments, or public spaces like shopping malls and airports, the strategic placement of these ads captures the attention of passersby, drawing them closer to the prominently displayed brands. 

In conclusion, animation studios have the power to transform TV commercials into visually stunning and emotionally resonant advertisements. Through their creativity, technical expertise, and cutting-edge technology, these studios can bring ideas to life in ways that captivate audiences' attention like never before.
