Forensic Animation Fee Schedule:
The costs associated with forensic animation and modeling can vary greatly. We offer several fee schedules to fit the needs and budget constraints for a wide scope of projects based on their complexity and the general level of detail they require. For certain cases, we offer a shared risk option that collects a small fee upfront and where payment for the balance of the project is dependent upon the outcome of your case. We are always available to discuss your case and provide a free initial cost estimate regardless of the size or scope of the project.
