Production of this kind requires a real animation studio units with several qualified people taking care of each stage of the project, which is responsible for drafting a unit to create 3D models, others load textures, lighting and rendering, a unit for animation and camera movements, others making the post-production, a unit loading of the sound recording, for mounting, for programming etc ...

Unfortunately, in this case I was alone on the project. The only advantage it has is to have a perfect control and a clear idea about what I want, so I could work the way I liked and realize exactly what I had in mind. The major drawback is that it takes a lot of time.
