Where do you see the final project living? Will it be posted to your socials, added into an email blast, utilized for a paid ad campaign? These questions all tie back into your intended goal. Of course you want a high quality video, but if you have no distribution plan then what’s the point?
If you want your animation to be seen, you need to have a strategy in place to get it out there. Doing so is only going to help to minimize edits later and allow for a smoother process all together.
The more prepared you are the more likely it is that your animator will get you your final result quickly and exactly to your liking. Trust us, giving your editor very little to go off of, only to come back with a million edits once the work has already been done is not the way to do it.
