For over 18 years we've been making videos for businesses who need to demonstrate their products or communicate with their audience. Whether on the web, in-store or on TV - we know how to present your product and get your message across to your customers. We work to a budget and understand that businesses are only interested in smart, predictable outcomes.
This product is unobtrusive by nature, charging using a solar panel and attracting and killing flying insects, so it was a challenge to show the Buzzkill 'in action' in a short video. The solution was to use various graphics, including CGI flies, to show the bugs being zapped. Alongside this there's footage of a family enjoying a pest-free home with the product in situe, as well as humourous 'fly-cam' sections featuring their struggles with the winged nuisances pre-Buzzkill.

The volvo histories animation was a large project designed to show the journey of man from the stone age right through to modern day using the concept of a man's hands to link all the different eras. all the hand shots were shot on green screen and then incorporated into the main animation.
The main challenge of this animation was to try and recreate the look and feel of classic paintings and involved labouriously taking paintings and breaking them down into various layers for the virtual camera to fly through. With a strong and epic soundtrack punctuated with sound effects we created an epic animation that ran on a constant loop at trade exhibitions and general corporate comms.

A range of colourful and stylish sunglasses with flexible arms that 'click' into place on your head and fold up neatly when not being used. There's a fresh, youthful feel to the video, but it's designed to appeal to a broad customer base.
The video features vibrant location footage of the sunglasses being used in a wide range of everyday situations, and studio green-screen shots that show off the range of colours in a playful and fun way. There are shifting colourful backgrounds and spinning and cascading CGI models of the glasses.

We start by listening and understanding your business. We'll identify your target audience and then use our experience to find the best way to tailor the message for them. Sometimes tried and tested methods are best - sometimes we have to be innovative and find new channels and new ways of communicating. This is our expertise.
Astonish are a long-established British company who make a wide range of cleaning products. We created short videos for eight of their products which were intended show off their cleaning power, highlight selling points such as their environmental friendliness, and to give a brief demonstration of how they were used. The tone was not to be a 'hard sell', but still to give a strong positive impression of the product.
We scripted, produced and edited the videos in-house, using graphics where appropriate that followed Astonish's established branding guidelines and adapted them to the medium of video. Because Astonish sell to the UK and Export markets using different branding, we produced two versions of each video which presented the additional challenge of having to film each shot where the product labels are visible twice.
Astonish know their customers and the message they want to get across, and we know how to bring that message to life, so together we were able to create a series of videos that showcase Astonish's brand in a modern and visually appealing way.

This was created to show off the latest in Syntaxin's next generation Toxins. The Entire animation was created in Stereoscopic 3D to be used as a high profile showcase video in the main HQ reception. There was also a 2D version created for use on laptops and other devices for sales and marketing purposes.
The entire project was storyboarded from scratch and involved using dedicated 3D software to create the illusion of depth with a sweeping soundtrack designed to highlight the various effects being used on screen. The client was super impressed with the final result.

This was primarily a long-form infomercial which featured a product demonstration segment shot in a studio, and testimonial interviews from ordinary K-FIT users, filmed on location.
The studio section featured host Jessie Pavelka demonstrating many of the exercises the product could be used for, and the health benefits and advantages it could bring. The background music gives a pulsing 'workout' feel to the piece.
We also produced several training DVDs that shipped with the K-FIT, featuring exercise programmes users could work out to.

This was a title sequence designed for the BBC series Doctors. Created in HD with a view to being constantly updated with new cast members we created a sequence that could be easily adapted with new footage and would be flexible enough to be changed and updated. The sequence went through a number of distinct changes before settling on the current version and has been in use ever since with minor changes each season.
