Conclusion

Should I hire a freelancer?

  • Potentially cheaper than using an animation studio or animation production company.
  • Communication can be an unknown until well into a project. This will affect your timelines, updates etc throughout the animation project.
  • Easy to hire and negotiate costs.
  • Estimated costs are approximately $100 per minute of completed animation footage (likely to be 2D animation).

Should I hire an animation studio or animation production company?

  • Be able to establish whether you are happy with their level of communication early into your animation project.
  • Have a location to visit and a person to allocated to your account, someone that will communicate with you in your time-zone.
  • Have a support team that understands your project timeline, goals, expectations on creative outputs etc
  • Be charged more than a freelancer due to the ongoing costs that come with managing a bricks and mortar business.
  • Have a greater likelihood of having your project completed in a timely manner and have less of your time tied to the day-to-day of the project.
