Our Services

Visualization

The power of visual communication

Seeing is believing, and what you see makes all the difference. From the simplest graphic to a photorealistic 3D render of a product, an illustration can make your message clear as day.

Create awe in your audience

We create illustrations that explain a concept in one frame.

Animation

Making it pop

Animation can bring your ideas to life. We will help you create a story that will enlighten, entertain and engage the audience. Motion graphics, music and perhaps a voice over can help explain even the most complex ideas.

Visual stories that engage

An animation shows how a product or service makes things better, either by solving a problem or expanding the horizon of things that are possible.  For innovation to work, people need to understand it, and this is where animation becomes an invaluable tool. If one image can say 1000 words, then one second of animation can say 24000. Pacing is important, as the human brain is only capable of a limited amount of input every minute. We will therefore guide you to the right amount of information with the right style, so that the message will stick.

The Animation Process

When working with us, you become a part of our team and we share the common goal of meeting the needs of the end user. In order to ensure optimal project execution with no waste of time and effort, we have developed a process with five phases, each completed before the next can begin.

Step 1

Brief

The first part of the process is creating a brief. This is a document that highlights the needs and constraints of the client, to give the project a purpose and limitations to work within. A deadline and/or a budget will help us set the expectations of the quality we should aim for.
If you already have all the input you think we need, why not create a brief here:

Step 2

Project proposal

Once we have ideated and gathered some examples of what we think will meet the needs, we will create a project proposal. This will contain the scope of work, deliverables, a timeline with milestones, a budget and our terms and conditions. Signing this will get the project going.

Step 3

Pre-production

We aim to have as many changes as possible in the pre-production phase, so that the timing, content and overall experience is well defined before we roll up our sleeves and get producing. When planning animations, we create a script, assemble a mood board, then a storyboard and finally an animatic, a simplified video with music and a voiceover. When creating an interactive experience, we will usually generate flowcharts and a prototype.

Step 4

Production

Modelling, texturing, rigging, animation, lighting, rendering and development are all parts of the production phase. We create everything as specified in the pre-production phase, always with the purpose and desired quality in mind. Not many changes are allowed in this phase, but if we have questions or anything is unclear, we will be in touch.

Step 5

Refinement

Once we have the content in place, we will put together a rough cut or a beta in order to ensure we are on the right track. Any minor changes are welcome here, but things that are not in scope will have an impact on the budget.

Finally

Delivery

When necessary changes have been made for a stunning result, we deliver the animation in the desired formats, lean back and enjoy the weekend.

Interactive Presentation

Explore on your own

We create interactive experiences that lets the user explore your concepts in their own pace, so they have the time to understand your idea.

Learning by doing

When the user can interact and explore a concept using their hands or other input devices, they are in control of the pace and are more likely to grasp the information they are seeing. A sprinkle of sound, gamification and humour makes the experience more enjoyable and motivates the user to stay longer. We create experiences for web, mobiles, iPads and touchscreens, whatever makes more sense for the end user.

Virtual Reality

More immersive experiences

Using a virtual reality headset, you can bring the user into another world, where you define the rules and set the goals.

Build a universe around the viewer

VR surrounds the user and takes them to another place entirely. This can be a place for learning, a place for excitement or a mind-altering experience where the laws of physics are bent and broken. From showing off an apartement that hasn't been built yet, to standing on a windmill on Mars, we create experiences that takes you out of the office environment and into a world where everything is possible.

Augmented Reality

A layer of imagination

Use the phone as a portal to another dimension, as a layer on top of our reality. Bring in 3D elements or add useful information to existing objects.

Injecting information and objects to the real world

Where virtual reality (VR) takes you out of this world, augmented reality (AR) brings digital information and objects into this one. Either viewing the world through a pair of AR-glasses or any modern smart phone, we add a layer on top, injecting stories and revealing knowledge right where it belongs.

Model Optimization

Make 3D models game ready

During our decades of experience working with complex models, we have developed many tools and techniques for reducing and optimizing polygons.

Making 3D models usable in any application

We have 20 years of experience taking models from CAD software, such as SolidWorks, Creo and Inventor, and getting them ready for animation and interactive applications. By reducing the number of polygons where they are not visible and baking details into the texture, we make the files smaller and the models more readable in render-intensive processes.
