Why Choose IdeaRocket

Why IdeaRocket?

Visionary organizations come to IdeaRocket with big ideas: industry-changing technologies, powerful new processes, concepts that if properly understood will reshape the way we live our lives. It’s not hype; ideas can change the world. But only if they are properly launched.

That’s where we come in. We pry your ideas open and and explore them. We delve into your strategy, and put ourselves in the shoes of your audience. We investigate how your idea might be defined by story, image, and motion.

At the end of the day,

your idea will rocket to its target — so that it is understood, felt, and remembered by those who see it.

Our Process

Every project has unique needs that shift the process slightly, but here’s how it usually works.

Discovery

We kick off with an in-depth discussion of your message, your brand, and who your target audience is. From there, we work with you to craft a story that is most persuasive to your audience.

Script Writing

After having internalized your objectives, we develop a script aimed at achieving these goals. We believe that scripting is the most important step in the process, so we listen carefully to feedback and revise until we are both satisfied with the result.

Design

In the design stage, we work out the visual elements of the video characters, backgrounds, and graphics, in order to develop a visual style that fits your message and brand. When approved, we’re ready to tell a story with it!

Storyboard and Animatic

At the Storyboard stage, we create rough art frames for each step of the story. This art is then timed to the voiceover, so we can determine how to blend sound and image for maximum effect.

Animation

The characters and graphics are then brought to life with full animation. The video is now 90% finished, all that is missing is...

Sound Design

Once the visuals are locked, we combine the voiceover with sound effects and music. If the music is from a library, all copyrights are secured, and there is no recurring charge for the music. In some cases, an original soundtrack is composed and recorded. The video is ready to ship!
