Marketing Animation

Of course, we’re not talking about Saturday morning cartoons when we say animation. Animation includes any playable visual media depicting a motion of sorts that was artificially created. There’s not a single commercial on TV these days that doesn’t include some kind of animation. We’re not implying that you didn’t know that already, but you’d be surprised how many people we talk to wonder how a cartoon character can sell their product. It can, but that’s beside the point. The point is: Whatever your product or service might be, animation might help sell it.

Scroll down to see examples of successful trade show booth animations, product introductions, and tradeshow campaign videos, all at least partially include animation.

"Creating a successful marketing strategy has a lot to do with great entertainment. Great entertainment captures the attention of your audience and keeps them from losing interest in you and your product.
We are not really sales people, we are entertainers."

Wristband for Apple Watch
SteadyMed PatchPump
Indica Vaporizer

Goal of the project was to create a stunning 3D animation for the KickStarter campaign for the HyperLink, an Apple Watch compatible after-market wristband. There's a good chance that you will have seen one of Apple’s commercials about one of their new gadgets that, yet again, changes everything, because they’ve introduced alien technology into their devices, judging by the tone of their voice-over. You have to give it to them, though. Their commercials are sure to increase your heart rate at least a little.

So, the benchmark for creating an Apple-like commercial for an Apple accessory, if you want to call it that, was pretty high. We created 6 computer-generated slow-motion close-up shots of the wristband trying to stay as close as possible to the A-flavor.

The project was funded at almost 600% of the goal.

Any questions about these projects? We are happy to answer them!

Trade Show Media

Trade shows are an exciting and effective option to be seen to tons of potential partners, customers, and investors, and there are periodical trade shows for just about any market out there. Going to trade shows is a little bit like going on a blind date, the first impression makes a huge difference. And there’s a lot you can do to make a great impression besides staffing the booth with knowledgeable people who don’t spend their time just playing around on their cell phones, handing out cheap merchandise to people who express interest in them. People size you up from afar and you might not get the opportunity to talk to many of them if you make the impression that you didn’t even try. Let us help you boost your image.

Crowdfunding Campaign Media

Crowdfunding has changed the marketplace for good and lowered the entry hurdles for any ambitious bootstrapper remarkably. Whether or not we actually need bluetooth or wifi enabled laundry detergent balls that give us a real-time read out of the effectiveness of the current spin cycle on our smart phones may be arguable, but if the campaign video is fun to watch and makes you say “yeahahaha”, you can get funding for a lot more gadgetry than you think. A well put-together campaign video also shows your audience that you’re not just fooling around and that you’re committed to getting your idea off the ground, which, needless to say, is paramount.

We can create your campaign video from the beginning to the end; live-action only, live-action with animation inserts live-action with special effects, or all-animation explainers. Let us help you make a great impression.

CES Booth Animation for Arrayent
iStick Kickstarter Campaign Video

Here we have a teaser with an animated logo in the beginning that was used for Arrayent's booth at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, 2015, where Internet of Things (IoT) was a popular theme. The logo animation in the beginning is an example of our Basic 3D Logo animation package: We were simply given a 2D vector graphic version of their company logo and used it as reference to create the 3D model.

The rest of the animation was also used at the trade show and falls more into the category of a benefit explainer animation.
