It’s incredible how far animation has come.

That’s proven true.
The same principles that apply to movies apply to business.
Tell a story that communicates to a relevant audience and moves them in some way.
We create a lot of content to help support many of the largest B2B companies in the world and we decided to create a different style that lends itself well to storytelling that’s visually engaging and works well as a series.
After speaking to our head of animations to discuss ideas – we wrote a short script idea and started creating a basic storyboard idea.
Once we agreed on the initial proof of concept idea – we illustrated and animated it
Here’s how the concept turned out:
This is meant to simply showcase the idea.
The way we see it -- this style would be ideal to have as a series of 5-8 episodes that are connected and that can tell a story with a common theme.
As an example – it could be used to educate an audience on 5G or cybersecurity threats in a series of engaging videos that both marketing and sales can publish and use.
Imagine having a series launched on a custom YouTube playlist once per week or simply dripped to the mailing list in a series.
Done right, this form of storytelling can help augment sales efforts making it easier to convey a message that moves people to action.
