How we work

Storyboard, 2D animation, compositing and coloring

First think, act later. That’s the spirit of animation. The 2D animation method has been around for more than a hundred years. People in the 2D animation industry still work with this format and they will use this format for the next hundred years. So, let’s be wise and stick to the format.

2d animation working proces


Pre-production is most essential. In this step we work together closely with our clients to make sure our vision for the project aligns with expectations. Going through this process together with you will save a lot of time later on in the project. A good story and a strong style that communicate your ideas to the desired target audience will be the result of a thorough pre-production.

Is the copywriting done and the storyline finalized? Check. All the key moments are there? Check. The visual style has been approved? Double Check. In the production  phase we do the hard work and bring the concept to life. Together with you we plan meetings to show the development of the animation to ensure we are moving in the right direction.

Post production

The animation together with the music, audio effects and the final voice over brings the video to life. Combined with a last color correction pass to bring the final layer of polish to your movie the animation is ready for release.


Is Studio Plumeau able to help me with specific steps in the 2D animation process?
Yes we can. You can ask for help at any given moment in the process. We can work with you on one of the production phases or we can help out with one step of a production phase. We especially love compositing and animation. Just send us an email.


We love to make frame by frame animations and we love to inspire other people to learn more about the old craftwork.
