Concept creation: Our animated video production services begin with a big brainstorm. Our team will produce a set of concepts for both the visual side of the video and the content within it. We’ll craft our ideas with your audience and brand in mind.
Script writing: Our team has a way with words. We’ll drawn on both script writing best practice and years of our own experience to bring everything from characters to instructions to life.
Storyboarding: This is the part where your animation starts to feel real. You’ll be able to see, scene for scene, how your video will look and play out.
Voiceovers: Voices are essential to animation. Think Homer, Bart and Marge. We have a little black book of voiceover experts that we can call on who are experienced in working with the best animation studios in the UK.
Of course, the type of animation that’s right for you will depend on the goals of your project, your intended audience and your brand. We can offer everything from vector animation – a clean, smooth, dynamic option – to mixed animation – combining graphical elements with live action to achieve jaw-to-floor effects.
So why animation?
Learning: The majority of people are visual learners, so animation is one of the most optimal ways of getting people to absorb and ultimately retain information. Visual information is also processed 60,000 times faster than words. Imagine you see an image of a square. You recognise it instantly right? Now imagine you are presented with this description…

Takes a little longer to compute doesn’t it?
Off the leash creativity: You’ve heard the expression thinking outside the box. Well with animation there is no box to start off with. Anything can be brought to life with lines, colours and a glut of creative talent. In animation, pigs can fly, unicorns exist, and there are always pots of gold at the end of rainbows.
Pep: Animations can be used to bring hum drum and even dull topics to life. The use of everything from cartoons to CGI and advanced 2D or 3D techniques can beat the boredom threshold of viewers when it comes to the likes of how-to’s or informational topics.
We produce creative, engaging and dynamic bespoke animation films.
An animation is a highly effective tool to deliver complex messages in an engaging and easy to understand way.
Our full service and results-driven approach will ensure that your film meets all objectives and messaging. We will cover all aspects of the project including concept, scripting, storyboarding, production design, voiceovers, and anything else your animation needs.
As a part of producing any animation, we will start by producing a set of creative concepts. These will set the visual and content approach of the animated film.
Our approach will be determined by the goals of the project, the audience and the brand. Technically we might decide to take a more hand-drawn approach, or vector based. We might go another route such as stop-motion as the sample on this page. Once the route is agreed we move to the script writing phase.
Scriptwriting determines not only what is said but the way your message is received. Kartoffel Films’ experienced team can ensure that your message comes across clearly and engages with your audience.
Our award-winning team has worked with many leading organizations including the World Wide Web Consortium, Macmillan Cancer Support, Amnesty International, and many others.
Storyboards are an essential aspect of pre-production, especially with animation. The storyboard is your chance to control the visual representation of your animation once the concept, script, and style have been decided upon.
Our creative animation team uses this step to ensure that the film looks exactly how you want it to.
Vector animation style delivers a clean, smooth and dynamic animation.
Our experienced and award-winning animation team will work with you to deliver your message in a clear and engaging way. Vector animation is a great way to share personal stories, tackle difficult subject material and simplify complex information.
Animation can also be combined as either graphical elements in live action or made entirely integral to the film as in the sample to the left.
