Welcome to the home of award-winning animation

Clients often come to us needing to engage with external stakeholders.  Sometimes the challenge is communicating dry, complex content in an engaging way, sometimes it is the need to explain a new initiative or just to make something more memorable. 

In each case we work with our clients to understand the audiences and build films that help engage with that group, in a more human way.  All our work is bespoke and built to your specific brief, making unique content that expresses your content and style perfectly. 

We have won many awards for our work and have created animations for the BBC, Ikea and Ebay on a rich variety of communications challenges.  Below we have shared just 3 examples, already in the public domain, to give you a peek on the range of topics and styles we have created.  We can Supercharge your story with fabulous script-writing, bespoke illustration and eye-catching animation.   

Making CSR Count Every Day – eBay

eBay was founded on the very principles of a circular economy, connecting people around the world and giving each sold item renewed life and value. With this in mind, eBay asked us to make a film that highlighted their CSR policy explaining what the Circular Economy is to the wider eBay community.  The Circular Economy initiative fits perfectly with the core purpose of eBay but the challenge for us was to create a film that demonstrated the role eBay and its stakeholders are playing in creating a sustainable future.  This film shows what can be achieved in just 2 minutes with a tight script, interesting characters and simple animation. We used engaging illustrations, analogies and diagrams to make a film that is informative and inspiring. The film changes the way that people view their purchases,  encouraging them to create more value from acting sustainably.

Showcasing Your Unique Brand: Lion Capital

Lion Capital wanted a film to help attract potential investors. They needed a take-out that built trust whilst expressing their unique approach to investing.  To build credibility in the audience we talked through their history, their successes and highlighted some of their big ‘names’.  Using portraits of their key founders, and liberally illustrating examples of the big brands in their portfolio, we emphasised the trustworthiness of the organisation.  By focusing on the key steps in their methodology we also helped to express what makes their approach unique in the sector.  This animation has a rich script and detailed characters and illustrations.  Together they create an engaging and unique feel; helping Lion Capital persuade more potential investors to see them as a future Private Equity partner. 

Doing Business Through the Ages –
Unite BT

Unite BT is Turkey’s largest IT services company.  They wanted a film that focused the viewers attention on their core message; helping customers to get back to the ‘real’ work of doing business. So, rather than a standard description of their products and services, we told the story of the challenges of doing business through the ages.  The film explains how, as markets and technologies change, the danger is that the businessman or ‘trader’ spends more time dealing with the technology rather than doing business.   Our quick jaunt through the history of trading and the need for better data allows us to bring a more human and fun feel to the explanation of IT services.  The length of this film allowed us the time to develop a deeper story, with interesting characters.  The detail of the imagery and environments feels richer and is more evocative, bringing a stronger sense of emotion to the film AND as a result it helps us make Unite BT the hero of the story. 

These are just three examples, we have a multitude of different types of films in all sorts of sectors so if you have any questions or just want to explore please do contact us and we’ll be delighted to share more with you.
