During the process of character design we're developing various possibilities of shapes, proportions and appeal of a character. We're evaluating aspects like levels of detail, animatability and other variables to meet the budget as well as the style of a project.
Through storyboards we're planning the visual storytelling of a project. At an early stage of production we can quickly vary camera angles, staging and pacing of a scene to find the best possible way to tell a story.
NICE creative offers an unique approach to tell your story. Each aspect of communicating a story to the audience is an appealing challenge. From backgrounds to characters. Everything communicates a certain feeling, be it conflict or harmony.
Classical 2d-animation includes various production steps which range from layout to rough animation, cleanup and coloring. We're not only providing 2d character animation but also handdrawn effects for a wide field of use.
From Modeling to Texturing, Shading and Rigging we're working on all aspects of the 3d pipeline.
We create and animate your 3D character according to your wishes, eg. a charming mascot, a chatty anchorman or maybe a cute animal sidekick. There are endless possibilities. Our specialty are stylised characters and expressive figures. We offer the whole package from designing a character collaboratively with you, over 3d modelling, rigging, texturing and rendering. We also provide workflows for export to realtime uses like Virtual Reality and Games. Have a look at some work samples we did in the past.
Creative vision and workflows of a production need to be planed and calculated in advance. Once the production is underway coordination, monitoring and controlling is essential to a successful completion of any large or small project.
