At the moment there are 3 people in Element Animation: Dan, Jason and Chrisi. We all write, voice act and animate.
That’s a rather personal question! But we’re all twenty something.
We’re all from a town called Scunthorpe in England.
It really depends on what the video is. If we already have most of the assets(Sets,Characters,etc.) built, it should take about 2 weeks to produce a 1 and a half minute animation. If we don’t have the assets built, well that would depend on the project.
This doesn’t deserve an answer…
Unfortunately our YouTube channel takes up most of our time so we can’t offer any animation services to anyone. …even if someone offered us 1 million moneys. We love our work too much. (Hint: 1,000,000.01 might work …but probably won’t.)
We will not make anyone an intro to their videos.
Not long ago we were struggling to get our videos out into the open, we got lucky when it happened. We know that there are other people out there who are in that situation right now. If you have a video that you think thousands of people would want to see, that is original (Not game recordings), send it to us. If we like it, we’ll promote it! *We like things a whole lot more if it’s something to do with us but that isn’t neccesary, we just want to see good content!
Because animation takes so long to make, it would be kind of hard to randomly stop the production to add in a character on a whim. If you think you have something different that we could use on the show, then by all means send us an e-mail with what you can do. If we can use it, we’ll try and write it in.
We use a range of software to make our animations and it’s always changing so there isn’t a definite answer to this question. If you’re interested in learning animation, you really shouldn’t base your software choice on what other people use. There isn’t a lot of difference between animation software, you should try different ones out and see what you feel more comfortable with, there’s a list of some very useful programs here.
