How we work
What defines Spring Onion Studio is good preparation and two different approaches to the project implementation. The first one is the art perspective and creative direction. The second approach is technical preparation.
Art Perspective & Creative Direction
When we start working with a client, the essential part of our process is the research. Researching and analyzing all previously published work in the same domain. Analyzing the client’s requirements and references. Defining the visual style, setting the artistic tone and defining quality expectations. Director’s treatment is the essence of it. Researching the right concept for the story, rewriting and polishing the script, researching the perfect visual reference for the concept and implementing the artwork into it, allows us to build the quality consistency of our art services.
In order to prevent unpleasant surprises during production, we invest our time in creating different versions of storyboards, animatics and boardomatic which gives us more control over the production and later post-production process. When we receive the assets (characters, models, props), we are improving and preparing them for that particular project, fitting all the technical requirements and optimising the process. Then we set up clear quality standards which we are trying to maintain through all our animation work. With the technical preparation and optimization, we are creating the system which we then improve through the communication and feedback with the client. Proces systematization is the main part of it. Structuring the process by work breakdowns in the pipeline allows us to achieve the maximum quality of the project expectations. This is also how we commit to the client. By setting the quality standard that doesn’t vary or change.
