Turning Imagination Into Reality
Who We Are
Imagine Toon is an animation studio based in Jamaica that delivers high quality animated commercials, explainer videos and public service announcements in a timely and efficient manner, and at an affordable cost.
Animation is a very convenient and effective way to communicate with your customer, as it can convey complicated business concepts and marketing messages, in a fun and easy-to-understand format. Animation is helpful for financial organizations, educational institutions, healthcare providers, to name a few, to convey information that is not readily available to the average customer. Start-up companies use them to create a buzz about a new product or service. Animation can be an affordable option in comparison to live action commercials, as there is no need for heavy capital outlay to rent locations, hire camera men, actors, etc. The entire production is done in a virtual studio.
We create animated commercial videos aimed at promoting your company’s products and services. The videos can be used in promotional campaigns on TV and social media. Our dedicated team will work closely with you to create videos that will effectively raise your company’s brand awareness, increase conversions, increase sales, or launch a product.
WHITEBOARD ANIMATION VIDEOS
A whiteboard video is an explainer video where successive images and text are hand-drawn and erased on a whiteboard. This format of video has become popular due to its ease of operation and low cost, making it one of the least expensive types of explainer videos to create.
Are you a film maker with an amazing script? Then why not turn it into a short film! Short films are easier and less expensive to make than a full length feature film, and is a great way to launch your film career. The team can turn your imagination into reality, using animation! We will handle the storyboarding, character designs, background designs, animation, visual effects, sound engineering, editing and compositing at an affordable cost.
Our experienced team of Illustrators can create high quality illustrations for print and digital published media, such as books, posters, flyers, magazines, teaching materials, animations, video games and films. Digital illustrations are often used to make websites and apps more user-friendly, such as the use of emojis to accompany digital type.
