Monetha - blockchain technology solving the trust problem in on-line purchases

Back in the day, before the on-line shopping, trading had been a physical experience. It was basen on relations and trust. This trust had been weakened when more and more unfair sellers started to use Internet to scam buyers. But thanks to the blockchain technology this problem can soon be dealt with. That’s because it evaluates the participants’ transactions and previous activities related to buying and selling. That’s the

power of the blockchain technology right in your fingertips!

Feedback summary: 

BluBlu Studios delivered exceptional videos featuring original characters that have exceeded expectations. The team was transparent and implemented feedback fast, ensuring the final product reflected the project vision. They worked quickly without sacrificing quality to support valuable engagement.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO and co-founder of a therapeutic app for people with anxiety.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BluBlu Studios?

We needed a partner to create video content for our platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

BluBlu Studios created one-minute animated videos that explain the concepts of anxiety and panic to our patients using the app. We gave them a rough storyline as I’d made a couple of videos, but their team recommended we start over. From there, they did everything. Their team took the script, made changes, and directed the rest of the process. They developed unique characters for the videos that were completely different than anything we’d seen previously. Their team produced the content iteratively, executing our feedback fast.

What is the team composition?

We worked with four people: one project manager and three individuals who produced the videos.

How did you come to work with BluBlu Studios?

We found them on Fiverr and wrote them directly.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $17,000 on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started the project in July and finished it in November 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We were really impressed with the quality of their work. The characters alone were great—very unique, which is hard to find nowadays since there are so many animated characters already. Their team integrated our feedback quickly. They also iterated over the course of the engagement, so as it went along the videos become more to our taste.

How did BluBlu Studios perform from a project management standpoint?

BluBlu Studios didn’t miss any deadlines. Their team was always straightforward in regard to the timeline. We always knew when we’d have the next iteration. They produced the videos quickly without being sloppy.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They provided unique, high-quality animations at a good price. Their team created detail-oriented animations. We received higher-quality videos from BluBlu Studios than we ever expected.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not really.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Do it. It’s definitely worth the money and time. They balance time and value well.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a co-founder of the company and oversee the user experience of our technology and online/offline marketing materials.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire BluBlu Studios?

We hired BluBlu to create an explainer video for Solvent.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to capture the story that paints the problem we're solving and the technology we're using to do it. There were a lot of moving parts to the story we wanted to tell and we felt as though BluBlu had what it took to do that story justice.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We had seen BluBlu on Dribbble, but ultimately we referred to our 99design agency pro account to source an agency for this project. BluBlu stood out from all the other agencies 10-fold. We knew that we had found some of the best talent in the industry.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

The video tells the story of the industry problem that created the necessity for our technology solutions. We were able to come up with that story and roughly storyboard a very rudimentary version of the story. BluBlu then took that version and created illustrations to better tell the story – we felt they did a wonderful job. Once we approved everything they then ran with the animation of the video in record time,

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

We did most of our communication via email. That ended up being very easy on our team and we were able to make decisions quickly regarding all creative files and direction.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The video we received not only did an outstanding job of bringing our story to life – but it was done in a very unique, and cutting-edge way. BluBlu gave us a video that is unlike anything we've seen and used an incredible amount of creativity to tell our story in the most simple way possible, and so far it has been met with rave reviews. They also stuck to the timeline. I don't think you can ask for better success metrics than those things.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Great, simple, effective. Resulted in a top-notch product.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

BluBlu Studios is one of those companies that 'get it'. We communicated the story that we had in our heads the best we could, and they took it and ran with it. Their input was invaluable, they really understand how to take a story and condense it down into 2 minutes, pair visuals with voice over audio and overlaid sound to create a product that was 98% complete. The revision process is taking us no time at all. That's the company you want to work with!

Are there any areas for improvement?

No. We very much intend to continue working with this agency moving forward and excited to create more dynamic marketing materials for our company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

We provided BluBlu Studios with an initial vision of the film along with a working storyboard. After becoming acquainted with our ideas, they finalized the script, refined the storyboard, and presented a series of static images to demonstrate the general animation style. Once we approved, they produced the animation within a few days and worked with us to perfect it. The final steps involved recording the voices and adding the soundtrack.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

I worked with two points of contact to coordinate the project. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

The video was well-received at press conferences and gained over 6,500 views on YouTube.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

It was a pleasure to work with BluBlu Studios. We communicated efficiently via email, and they consulted with us on a regular basis during each stage of production. If we had any inquiries, they responded to our questions within a business day, which allowed us to finish the project on time. They gave concrete, factual answers while still being casual and approachable.​​​​​​​

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed with their knowledge about animation production and their timeliness.​​​​​​​

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I can’t think of anything to improve at the moment. I was happy with the collaboration.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m an executive of a retail tech startup. We have a technology that allows for physical stores to function autonomously without a checkout and to capture data from customers and products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BluBlu Studios?

We were about to release our website and needed someone to work on the video explainer of the technology as well as some custom artwork for the website and brochures.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

BluBlu Studios developed our animated video explainer using characters they created. We used those illustrated characters for some merchandise and marketing material as well.

What is the team composition?

The project lead was our sales representative who managed the team on their end.

How did you come to work with BluBlu Studios?

I was looking for illustration providers. I knew there were some strong ones in this area. We chose BluBlu Studios based on their portfolio. They had good work but also a style that was in line with what we wanted for our brand.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from July to November 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We haven't yet released the video or other materials so don’t have any results or impact yet. The artwork looks great. People that I’ve shown their work so far have been impressed. It’s exactly what we were looking for.

How did BluBlu Studios perform from a project management standpoint?

I communicated with the project lead who would send me outputs on the deadlines. They were diligent and always delivered on time. We often asked for changes, which they would always make and on time.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their work capacity. They did a lot of high-quality work very quickly. The artwork meets high standards.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Not really. Nothing that's worth mentioning.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

In our case, we knew what we wanted and provided them with a detailed brief. That worked well for us. I would suggest other clients take a similar approach.
