Now, we don’t like to brag, but we have been known to rub shoulders with a few celebs – Gabby Logan and Tony Robinson have lent their dulcet tones to some of our previous videos.
And a handful of ex-frontbenchers have also made cameo appearances … not necessarily at their request … but it was funn … ahem.
The point is, celebrity endorsement can add weight to your message.
Most recently, we had the pleasure of welcoming Olympian - and genuinely lovely chap - Tim Foster, into the studio to record a voice over for the British Pharmacological Society’s latest animation warning 10-14 year olds about the dangers of drugs and supplements.
Elsewhere, we've created an animation for the Portman Group that brings together a range of official statistics to reveal drinking trends in the UK, an animation for the Institute of Alcohol Studies highlighting the problem of cheap, high strength alcohol, and we've been reinventing stock footagewith animated overlays to highlight the success of offshore wind for Renewable UK’s campaign during Offshore Wind Week.
We also completed our first company results animation for a FTSE 100 company. The obvious challenge with a project like this is the hard deadline. But we’re used to those!
So the real challenge here was managing a project where the underlying information is subject to change right up until the very last minute. The combination of cool heads, communicative clients and our usual collaborative approach won out.
Looking ahead to December, we have a rush of projects with Christmas deadlines and a few festive surprises in store – speaking of which, it’s probably time for the Production elves to get back to the workshop!
