A mixed media video is the intersection of animation and live action videos or photographs. There really isn’t much more to explain than that. Mixed media videos could include anything from a 2D character animation to a 3D infographic but one of the main ways you see mixed media animation is in the form of animated overlays.
Live Action Overlay
An animated overlay is when you see animation created to be used on top of live action video. This is great for bringing branding to live shot videos or to add extra explanations to things that you’d like an audience to be focusing on. Mixed media animations are also awesome for when you want to have a live person speaking but want to bring what they’re saying to life with some animated content, all at once. You’ll start to understand better once you watch a couple of the examples below.
