Thumbnail Sketches: If you are looking to get a toned-down version of a storyboard design illustration with minimum details on it unlike a complete storyboard, thumbnail sketches are exactly what you need. This can be a great option for all those who look for a rough, non-detailed and non-fingh,ished look for the storyboard. This can be a great opportunity for clients who need storyboards just to make the pitch and cut their costs on storyboarding.
Black and White Storyboards: Black and white storyboards are panels having better finish and more details than the thumbnail sketches do. Simple, yet effective, grey tones are utilized to effectually enhance the details of the panel. Persons who require effective storyboards to create animatic or a commercial pitch may not find a better option than this is.
Color Storyboards: These are normal storyboards with the lone distinction being the color tones utilized to bolster the details of the storyboards. For treatment pitch or commercial spot, color storyboards are often utilized.
Story Reel Animatics: In a video pitch, an animatic is the natural progressive phase. At this stage, a range of storyboards are concurrently edited together to craft effective continuity boards having adept timing, soundtrack and the momentary dialogues to be used. This will lead to the creation of an animatic video that anyone can follow and be pitched to prospective clients and producers.
Character designing Keeping in mind the setting of the narration and plot, our creative design team can etch out the character designs as required by you after carrying out sprawling and expansive researches as demanded by the scope of the story being told. Our 2d character creation will help the client finalize the poses, gestures and a series of appearances for the characters.

Leveraging our infrastructural capabilities and creative chops, our team will certainly provide you with concept panels that can impress all parties involved.
Continuity Boards: When you need to know everything about the poses for a particular animation and dialogue, continuity boards are what you get the help from. They can also be effectively utilized to get all the essential details of the positions of the camera. In this, a single page of script might require a hundred storyboard panels all explaining the actions that take place in the scene.
Motion Comics: Motion comics embody all the attributes of a print comic blended with the matchless possibilities of animation and storyboard character design to create an exceptional feel. It is also called animated comic. In motion comics, voice acting, background score, sound effects and animation are integrated to the original work of art all the while the individual panels are developed into a coherent and comprehensive shot.
3D Previz: A technical service, rendered in 3D, Previz helps in realistically visualizing or laying out diverse scenes in a shot systematically so as to make sense technically. This is extensively utilized by the production team, including the producer and director of a range of products such as film, commercial or an even TV show. Most of the times, this is a comprehensive plan serving as the blueprint to be used by the producer and the director on the set to move the shoot effectively further.
Storyboards for Creative Direction: When it comes to certain projects, it requires more creative involvement than others do. In such cases, a team consists of several art directors, copywriters and designers will involve themselves in the creative process to come up with an extensively detailed, well-rendered and detailed storyboard even from a vague and abstract idea using various storyboard drawing techniques. It can then be utilized during the process of actual production.
