Production is evolving and so are we.

We’ve been involved in video and animation for over a decade, and if it’s taught us anything it’s that being able to communicate clearly and produce efficiently is critical. With the ever escalating options and the tantalizing immersive formats gaining in momentum, it’s more important than ever to know the tools intimately and control them carefully to tell a story well. 3D, 360 and VR production are what’s getting us excited right now, but as the media landscape changes, so will we. If you need a talented, cutting edge production team to partner with, we would love to hear from you.

Make sure you’re using Chrome or better yet watch it on your Android device. To interact you can click and drag on the video or simply use the tilt and orientation of your smart device. For the best experience use a device like Google cardboard. Don’t have one of those or don’t know what that is? Time to give us a call.


Cinemagraph Case Study – Smirnoff

The cinemagraph is one of our favourite formats to play with. To create a successful cinemagraph, the illusion of video and live action must be created. For the viewer, there must be a transition from viewing the media as just a static image to the excitement of discovering additional video cues. This was a really fun project with such a great team!



Corporate & Education Case Study – GC2

Creating corporate, animated AV’s will test your communication skills to the limit. It requires intimately understanding the client’s product and telling their story in a way that those unfamiliar with it can have the best possible introduction. This particular example was designed for an exhibition space where viewers with limited time would drop in (often in the middle) and view the animation at any point. In this time, they needed to get a quick overview of the product while being enticed to investigate further.



Interactive Video Case Study – Standard Bank

You know how tough shooting a video is, try adding seamless, interactive features to the mix. We recently made a choose your own adventure interactive video for Standard Bank Playroom. Pre-production is critical, as well as planning the transitions and loops for when a user is making decisions. There are a lot of really interesting platforms emerging and we’ve experimented with a few. Interlude has come to the fore as a market leader and has some very powerful options to bring the video to life.


Resource – After Effects Expressions

We get a lot of questions about how to use expressions and what the best ones are to use and when. Expressions are powerful and can save you a lot of time, but they can also be confusing. In an effort to help, we are producing a series of tutorials and releasing some resources of our favorite scripts.
