CONCEPT DEVELOPMENT & CINEMATICS
More recently, pre-visualization has become more and more common as an alternative to plan out a shot. It’s uses are nearly limitless because it is extremely time efficient, effective, and it allows everybody who plans to work on the final version to be on the same page. By using previs, we are able to show you how something would look long before a deadline arrives and you have to make any compromises.
