Post Workflow Help
I'm an animator currently leading a project with other people. I know how a typical workflow works in this but I also want to know what people working in the animation industry say about this from their experience. for that I want to ask for the following:

Pre-Production
Production
Post-Production

Thank you if anyone can answer this.

Hi

You might want to be more specific with your questions. Not too sure what you need.

Sorry for being vague. I want to know what kind of work is done in these three phases, what people have experienced working under this and what kind of work are prioritised. Sorry for being vague once again.

I am still not too clear about your question.
I try my best to answer them

Pre-Production
Concept Designs of Props, Sets and Characters
Colour Script, Background/Matte Painting
Storyboarding and Animatics


Production
Modeling/Texturing/ Rigging
3d Layout
Animation
Lighting
VFX
Compositing


Post-Production
Audio Works (Sound Designs, Sound Mix, Foley, Music)
Colour correction, Post treatment etc



Not too sure what you mean by what kind of work are prioritised.
I am assuming you are referring to with a limited budget. Where do you want to put your money to? I would say a good story, good storyboard / animatics and good animation.

Hope it helps.

Those answers are what I need to know. Thank you. I also forgot to ask about quality assurance. How is it done in the industry, how long is the process and how many people/parties are involved? What are also the standards of productivity expected in teams working in the project or companies. How are they regulated?

Again. Your question is very general. So I try to answer as much as I can.

Generally a lot depending on budget and what type of project.

The following is based on my own experience.

I normally divided it into

High Budget Feature
Low Budget Feature
Telefeature

High Quality TV Series for older kids (22 mins)
Pre School Quality TV Series (11 mins)

So number of people involved will depend on duration, amount of complex effects, the type of lighting and renderings.

A typical TV series (26 x 22 mins or 52 x 111 mins) should not take more than 18 to 20 months from start till end.

A Telefeature should not take more than 18 months.

A feature should not take more than 3 years.

Else the buyers will have to wait to long. This is very much typical industry norms.

As for Quality Assurance. The people checking the work daily ranges from
Executive Producer, Art Director, Creative Director, Animation Director and all the leads.

The guides and templates come from Pre production dpt. That is why a good pre production is very important. If it is not done properly. You will ended up spending more money.

Hope it helps.
