How do we explain a product & make a lasting impression?

Your product needs an engaging and effective explanation? You want to reach potential prospects effectively and be remembered the way you intend to? A well thought through and tested storytelling process can get you there.

Story framework

We fall in love with brands because of their stories.

Good stories do not work logically. They work psycho-logically. To make your video effective and entertaining, you need to create a feeling of delight and empowerment inside your clients. They are the heroes of your story.

Step-by-step storytelling:

Discovery
& Story

Before the start of production, we will look at your goals, whom you want to reach, and why. I will guide you through a structured story process to increase the effect of your video.

& Design

Starting with a moodboard to narrow down aesthetics for the visual style of the video, we will develop a storyboard to drive home your key points with effective visuals.

& Sound

With an eye for details and expertise in animation principles, we first test a rough cut and then bring your story to life with a soundtrack and voice-over to speak to all senses.
