Frequently Asked Questions

Is animation the right fit for my project?

Animation offers creative freedom and flexibility, making it perfect for bringing complex ideas to life in a visually engaging way. It’s often more cost-effective and efficient than live-action production, and offers a wide range of styles to suit your project’s tone, budget, and goals. Choose animation when you need to simplify complex ideas in a creative way. It’s ideal for explainer videos, branded content, promotional materials, educational projects, and more. With animation, the possibilities are limitless!

What's the animation production process like at Motionlab?

We believe in a collaborative approach. Our process starts with a meeting where we get to know your project goals and target audience. Then, we work alongside you to develop a script, storyboard, and visual style that perfectly captures your vision. Once everything is approved, our skilled team brings your project to life through animation, voice recording, sound design, and final edits. We’ll keep you informed throughout the process and provide opportunities for revisions to ensure you’re thrilled with the final product.

How long does the animation production process typically take?

Our standard production turnaround time is 5-8 weeks for a 60-second video, but this can vary depending on the complexity of the project, the style of animation, and other factors. Rush projects are also available, but may incur an additional fee. We understand that every project is unique, and we work closely with our clients to ensure that we meet their deadlines and deliver a high-quality final product.

What's the ballpark cost of an animated video?

The cost depends on production quality, video length, and animation style. Our prices range from $6,000 for a standard explainer video to $25,000+ for higher-end productions. We offer flexible pricing options to suit different budgets and requirements. Our goal is to deliver high-quality animation that meets your needs and exceeds your expectations.
