What is an animatic? [watch video]

An animatic is minimal video-version of a storyboard sequence that usually includes temporary music and voiceover. We'll combine our storyboard drawings, a temporary voice-over (or scratch-track), and a potential music track to create an animated slide-show as the first draft of your story. This is an important step, because it's here where we'll discover any timing holes or communication problems with your story that we can work out before we've committed time and resources to illustration, animation, and voice talent.
