Video & Animation

Be so good they can’t ignore you

Our Show Reel

Done properly, a video can tell your clients and customers more in 30 seconds than they can glean in 30 minutes from a static website.

Videos are popular and compelling, often helping to increase not just awareness but also response. Whether you need a video or animation for your website or a presentation, our video production team can take you from initial concept and story boards, through to production and final editing. In short, we’ll make you look so good you can’t possibly be ignored.

How we do it

Brief

We start by understanding exactly what you want from your motion graphics – your goals, target audience, strategy, competition and key messages. From this our dedicated account manager will prepare a brief for our in-house creative team.

Design

Our in-house creatives use the brief and your script, if you have one, to prepare an initial storyboard, developing a concept which we present to you for approval.

Development

Once your storyboard is approved, we will bring it to life using Adobe After Effects, combining audio, voiceover and effects. We’ll present you with a first render which we’ll go through together to work out if any amends are required.

Launch

When you’re happy with the final result, we render and convert to any file formats you need. If you wish we can add your video to Vimeo, YouTube or your website.

Top Video & Animation FAQs

How long does video production take?
This will very much depend on the scope of the project. Your dedicated account manager will be able to give you a rough time frame on your initial meeting, and once a brief has been taken a more detailed breakdown can be supplied.
What type of videos do you produce?
The type of work we produce varies hugely depending on the project and brand we’re working with. Examples include: promotional video, corporate video, training and explainer video, presentations, storytelling etc. This can involve film, using stock footage, motion graphics, animation and a variety of special effects such as parallax.
Do your videos get results?
Yes. The explosion of mobile browsing and video consumption has forced brands to think outside the box in order to engage their audiences. Our in-house creative team specialise in delivering highly targeted messages to customers and stakeholders for maximum viewing engagement.
Talk me through your video design process.
Initially, you are invited in to meet your account manager where they will take a detailed brief from you. If you have a script you will be asked to supply this or we will take a brief from you so they we can prepare one for you. It’s essential for us to understand your target market, get to grips with your product and/or services and understand where you fit in the market and what your objectives are. Using your script and brief as a guide, your designated Art Director will carry out further research looking at things like industry trends, your colours, styles, fonts and typography and consider the key messages you need to get across. This research is used to develop initial concepts and a storyboard evolves, firstly as a sketch and then as a pdf document. This is sent to you and you will meet with your account manager to review it. The video is then developed. If required you will be sent a first render and then based on your response we make improvements to ensure that we hit the brief perfectly. The final render is saved and sent to you by email.
How are you going to ensure that my message is communicated clearly?
A clearly communicated message stems from a clear and concise brief and effective market research. Your account manager will ask you a variety of questions in order to glean enough information to feed through to either a Video Copywriter or Art Director. They will then carry out research to understand your target market, get to grips with your product and/or services and understand where you fit in the market and what your objectives are. They will also gather an insight into industry trends, your colours, styles, fonts and typography and consider the key messages you need to get across. This generates a clear focus for your video and the style your audience will best relate to.
