Animation & Video

Engage your customers one frame at a time to harness the true potential of social media. YouTube, Vimeo, TikTok, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook – it’s all there, isn’t it? A raft of global marketing platforms with mindboggling reach, each one ready and waiting for…what? The poorly-lit iPhone footage of Lisa and Terry getting their zipwires tangled on last year’s team building away day? Don’t even think about it. No. Grab the popcorn and dream instead about lights – camera – action. The magic of the silverscreen. The 30 second animation that goes viral and attracts 10,000 new followers to your Insta account. Dream the dream. Bring your idea to life.

Neal's Yard: Understanding Your Skin

“We are going to go on a journey to understand the largest organ of the body”
