Create a 3D animation in Amsterdam and Eindhoven

Looking for a 3D animation company in the Netherlands? Bigfish has offices in both Amsterdam and Eindhoven. Our 3D animation studios are among the best in the country, or so our clients tell us.

3D Storytelling

Storytelling is the best way to deliver your message as powerfully and memorably as possible. With a story, you can emotionally engage your audience and keep their attention more effectively. To create a 3D animation that really makes an impact, emotional involvement is essential. You can choose a more traditional narrative – with a beginning, middle, and end – or opt for a metaphor to explain abstract concepts in a comprehensible way. As a professional agency, we provide a range of suggestions and advice for this.

Implementation of 3D animations

3D animations are often used to explain a complex product or process. You can literally illuminate a subject from all angles, and visually present products, services, or projects in a surprising way. Think of an ‘exploded view’, which takes viewers literally inside your product. When you choose to create a 3D animation, our 3D animators also create the most stunning ‘bites’ or ‘snacks’ for social media – short clips that make a big impact in just a few seconds.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is 3D animation?

3D animation is a form of animation where we model and move objects and characters in a three-dimensional, virtual environment. Literally, it’s one dimension more than 2D, offering extra possibilities for visually conveying your story or message in the most appealing way possible.

Why should I choose Bigfish Animation to create my 3D animation?

Bigfish Animation offers expertise and flexibility, ensuring a professional, tailored final product. This is one reason why we have become market leaders in animation. Other reasons? Our large team, allowing us to easily manage multiple projects concurrently. Our experience, given that we’ve been in business for nearly 15 years. And our proven methods, which continually surprise and delight both high-profile brands and SMEs alike.

I have my own 3D models. Can Bigfish use these?

Not only does this save us work, but it also guarantees that all 3D proportions are perfectly reflected in the animation. In consultation with our 3D specialists, we can convert almost any file format into the correct working files so that we can utilize them.

What are the advantages of a 3D animation?

With 3D productions, you have the ability to easily show the animation from different perspectives or rotate 360 degrees around a product. This is impossible with 2D animation. Also, with 3D productions, you can visualize the smallest details in a photorealistic manner.

How long does it take for Bigfish to create a 3D animation?

On average, it takes between three and eight weeks. However, this is determined by the complexity of the subject and your message, as well as the amount of information you want to convey. A 3D animation with realistic characters often takes more time than a 3D animation with graphic elements only. The advantage of a large entity like Bigfish Animation? Our very large team can handle multiple productions simultaneously. A detailed production plan ensures that we know exactly what to expect from each other and when.

What is the cost of a 3D animation at Bigfish?

The cost of a 3D animation naturally depends on the size and complexity of the project. Bigfish Animation offers fair prices, but never compromises on quality and professionalism. We always ensure to stay within your budget.
