Craftoon presents 2017 Showreel! 

If you're looking for video production and marketing partner we're the right choice. Craftoon specializes in creating video explainers, 2D and 3D animations and camera footage. We're also helping our clients with preparing their tailored video marketing strategy to complete their business goals. We're working with start-ups, global corporate clients and small companies.

DQR - Short documentary made by Craftoon

For our client we prepared a short documentary that shows DQR as a people with passion and their own mission to change the world. The video includes shots recorded in Malta and Germany. 

DQR - Interviews and team presentation

For DQR we recorded lots of live interviews and a short video showing their team as a visionaries who want to change the world. Our crew traveled to Malta and Germany to record all of the footage.

DQR - Interview with Genesis Mining

Craftoon recorded a short interview with Genesis Mining's co-founder made especially for DQR.

DQR - Corporate movie from Pre-launch gala made by Craftoon

For DQR Group we recorded a corporate movie from a Pre-launch event hosted in Malta. We have captured live interviews, public speeches and recorded lots of drone footage in Valletta.

Digital Quantitative Research- Corporate movies, series of videos and 3D animations made by Craftoon

For DQR (Digital Quantitative Research), Craftoon prepared a series of corporate videos and explainer animations. DQR is a company working in cryptocurrency industry, so our main challenge was to build trust and legitimacy through the power of videos. The whole production was recorded in Berlin and Malta. In Malta we recorded a pre-launch gala preview, mythbuster series (live camera mixed with 3D animations) and a short documentary about the CEO of DQR. Beside that, we have created a serie of videos made for press. Such a complex video production is something that we love to do.

For Agora, which is the biggest Polish media corporation, Craftoon did two projects covering a newspaper Gazeta.pl. The product itself was two 3D cartoon animation videos: one - with an aim of raising people’s awareness of the newspaper being available not only on paper but on various digital devices, like laptops and phones; the other – on raising their attention to a TV program inserted brochure

For Archdesk, which is an all-in-one cloud-based management software for companies within the construction industry, Craftoon created a 2D explanatory animation, that would basically provide construction clients a clear understanding of what it is and the needs it satisfies.

For the Vienna City Administration app “Sag’s Wein” Craftoon developed a short 2D animation video explainer that would share all the features of the app with people, tell of its use and purposes. Hence, the video was launched as an internet and public transport campaign aimed at the citizens of Vienna.

Aflofarm - 3D animation commercial

Aflofarm is a №1 pharmaceutical company in Poland on the OTC market. It exports its vide range of products to 30 countries around the world.
Craftoon had a privilege to do a filmed TV commercial video that would represent one of their products - Vedimasan, which is basically a relieving leg gel tube with a special massaging head. The video with a 3D animation ingrained was used on a TV as well as on the very website of the product.

For Photler, which is a Software as a Service (SaaS) product, Craftoon created a 2D video explainer. The animation’s purpose is to present the product, its main idea, features and possibilities. Considering the fact that the target audience is mostly travelers, we had to steer the video that way so it covers all their main questions.

For the company emeryturka.pl Craftoon created a 2D animation film that would explain people, in the matter of fact Polish emigrants that moved out to Germany, of how with the help of this program it is possible to put aside a small amount of money daily in order to be able to get a lot more back by the time they retire.

For the Eurovision Fanhouse, Craftoon as a Video Marketing Partner created a 2D explanatory animation that would serve simply as a collection of the most fun and memorable facts about the whole Eurovision Song Contest. 

Ministry of the Environment - 3D & 2D educational animation

For Polish Ministry of the Environment, Craftoon prepared an educative animation video aimed at raising forest-awareness of children and inviting them to continue their studies at forest schools. We made sure of a video to be as interactive as possible as well as complying all the needs of our client, which were to raise awareness on forests protection, show the possibilities of attending those schools in different regions and make the offer decently attractive. Hence, as a result of the views gained, the number of a next-year forest schools attendees slightly increased.

Bizbank - 3D commercial animation

For Biz Bank Craftoon Video Marketing Company made a 3D commercial animation that would represent the bank and promote its last-released attractive offers. As this is a tongue-in-cheek film, putting the crow and showing what would have happed if it sang brings a good juxtaposition of if the bank used the crow in its services. At the end, the text stating that there are no major fees for conducting a business bank account at Biz Bank, kind of brings up a comparison that there are no “crows” in its service.

For MARTINI “Celebrating 150 Years” campaign Craftoon created two 3D video animations that would represent Martini Asti limited edition bottle. One of the videos was aimed for winter holidays and the other just at any other holiday occasions. The videos and shots were used for TV, Internet and billboards. The end result was to raise up the sales for the company coming up from the promotional campaign

For the project of Microsoft called School in the Cloud, Craftoon created a 2D animation explanatory video that would serve as an internet campaign to perfectly explain to people what is a school in the cloud (a pack of Microsoft documents used at one cloud) and what are its benefits

Feedback summary: 

Craftoon delivered a high-quality video. Even with a smaller team, they provided responsive service and achieved the set goals.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am a brand manager for Marek Zientecki, a Polish businessman known for founding well-known companies. I am helping him promote himself.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Craftoon?

To improve our SEO performance, we wanted to produce a video about Mark and his business.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The team produced an animated video and created a marketing strategy for the content.

What is the team composition?

Although Craftoon assigned 10 resources—including camera operators—I only had direct contact with the project manager, the head of marketing, an animator, and business developer. The head of marketing led the strategy and the animator created the video. The project manager kept me up to date with the scope.

How did you come to work with Craftoon?

I found them online and viewed one of their videos. I sent an email describing the project because we wanted similar content; that client had inspired my boss and received high-quality results from Craftoon. Their business developer replied with details about their approach and pricing.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $45,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them between February–June 2018. We’ll post the video next month.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The video is high quality. We just need to create additional content for it.

How did Craftoon perform from a project management standpoint?

The team was consistently available and responsive; they usually followed-up within an hour.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I appreciated their creativity and openness. Although we didn’t have a specific vision, they did a good job with the video.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The production timeline was longer because they had a smaller team.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the CMO of a water storage tank manufacturer. Farming companies and villages use our tailor-made products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Craftoon?

We wanted to create a 3D animation of our product. Since we don’t have many completed projects and it’s difficult to explain what we do, we figured that a video was a good way to showcase our solutions.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Craftoon created a 3D animation that we could send to clients. We simply showed them what we wanted, and they completed the project without any issues.

We’ve also worked with them on other projects. When they saw our office, they suggested that we showcase our facilities. We liked the idea and asked them to shoot drone footage of our headquarters and production facilities. Then, they created a video that we’ve shown at conferences. It has given us a good advantage since we’re probably the first in our industry to do this. They also suggested that we make an animation video with statistics on the size of our team, our expertise, and so on. It was meant to be a fun version of a report.

What is the team composition?

We worked with 4–5 people from their team, including a communications person, a project manager, a scriptwriter, and an art director. We also worked with a marketing expert who advised us on how to get the best results.

How did you come to work with Craftoon?

We researched video production companies in Poland and found that most were not that good. After we made an announcement asking for video production services, one of our friends forwarded the message to Craftoon. They reached out to us. We checked their competitors’ prices and found that Craftoon was on par or better. It was easy to choose because they were referred by someone we trusted.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost was around $30,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with Craftoon between January and April 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We simply send our videos via email, and they help potential clients decide whether or not to buy our products. Our clients and distributors have given us a lot of compliments about the videos.

How did Craftoon perform from a project management standpoint?

They made sure everything was done on schedule and with good quality. We were able to contact them at any time, even during weekends. We didn’t have any issues.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I appreciate their professionalism, creativity, and pricing. They did a good job of educating us. Since didn’t know the difference between 3D and 2D animation, they explained why the prices for 3D are higher.

We provide a platform that allows users to share travel pictures in a professional way.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Craftoon?

We needed to create some animated videos that would help us reach our audience and explain what our company does.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They created animation videos for product promotion and description. We’ve done two animated explainer videos and we’re waiting for a third, which is 3D. They created the scripts along with a presentation that explained how they addressed our goals. After that, we simply got the results.

What is the team composition?

They assigned a team consisting of marketing specialists, a writer, and animators.

How did you come to work with Craftoon?

We found them through Google, we checked their portfolio, and we got in touch. They explained their services very effectively so we decided to work together. Before checking their portfolio, I was impressed by their website itself. I liked their previous work, but they also stood out in terms of communication strategy.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost of their services has been around $120,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in December 2016 and the collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They were really professional, they have a good team, and they always conform to our feedback. They've helped us with some strategic consulting.

We’ve had good reactions to our videos. We’ve shown the presentation videos during client meetings, so we’ve received some face-to-face reactions. Our social media department has also tracked how many people have watched the videos. All these results have been positive.

How did Craftoon perform from a project management standpoint?

They performed well. We had meetings once a month with both our teams, during which we made decisions. The process was really nice. They always shared their ideas and listened to our feedback. The first video got some good results, so we built trust in their suggestions.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I appreciated the on-time delivery. They stuck to our schedule and produced some original designs. There are many video production and animation companies available, but Craftoon’s animations are professional and original. They’re in constant communication with us, and they take our ideas and feedback on board.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We haven’t had any issues with Craftoon, but they could hire more people so that we are able to work on bigger projects. Our portal is getting bigger and bigger, and we would like to use them for more projects.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Clients should explain what their goals are and trust Craftoon. I am sure that they will be satisfied with the work.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a marketing specialist for a life, business, corporate, and career coaching company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Craftoon?

We needed to create two videos that would be used by our coaches during presentations.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Craftoon produced two videos for us. One of those videos features our team and our latest presentation. The second one shows our vision and the services we offer. One of the videos uses 2D animation, and the other one is 3D.

We had a storyboard in place. We had discussions with Craftoon’s team and explained our company’s activity and mission. They brought a lot of ideas and were very creative.

What is the team composition?

We’ve worked with three of their members: their art director, project manager, and graphic designer.

How did you come to work with Craftoon?

I attended a conference in 2017 about the importance of video marketing. Crafton’s project manager was there, and we talked. We started our collaboration one month later.

How much have you invested with them?

The combined cost of the two videos was $13,000. They are certainly not for those looking for low prices. We were initially thinking that the service was expensive, but they explained the processes behind making this type of video. Later, we understood that the price was good.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with Craftoon from October 2017–February 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We were ultimately happy with the deliverables. We’ve seen a 10% increase in sales since Craftoon produced the videos for us. We are also using the videos offline. Since we started showing the videos at events, more and more people have become interested in our company. Craftoon helped us complete our marketing goals. They understood our mission, and they have a high level of service and performance.

How did Craftoon perform from a project management standpoint?

I was in touch with them through Skype. They were good at maintaining deadlines and delivering early. They were flexible with payments. I believe we will collaborate again in the future.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It was very easy to work with them. They quickly understood what we wanted. They were professional. It was a close relationship, and it was comfortable talking to them. They weren’t too technical.

How did Craftoon perform from a project management standpoint?

I could get in contact with the project manager 24 hours a day. I was given a private number to call him any time. I could reach them by phone, Skype, or Facebook.

The most important thing for me was to speed up the process of communication with future clients and that's exactly what happened. Each time someone asks us about the delivery processes or wants to see the product, we show them those animations. A lot of people found our website online and gave us amazing feedback on it. We use it for our marketing. We've had 25% higher engagement since we’ve begun sharing the videos. That was amazing and more than we expected.

How did Craftoon perform from a project management standpoint?

During our kick-off meeting, we discussed the timeline. They were always on time and available. They’re really quick to answer my questions. Every week we had a summary call to talk about the progress made and to answer our questions. I never waited more than one hour for an answer. I was really happy with the co-working process.

They’re really young and positive about the things they do. They really like their work and have a lot of passion. I love working with people like that. They’re always full of energy and new ideas. You can feel the passion that they have. It was really amazing working with them and I look forward to working together again if I need anything.

Feedback summary: 

The completed videos are excellent, with the team not only working on their content and production, but also providing marketing and strategic assistance. They communicated effectively and offered their experience and expertize throughout the project to ensure quality results.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the head of a joint-stock company, part of our national passenger rail transport service. We're the company responsible for passenger transport and expert training.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Craftoon?

During our site redesign, we wanted to create videos that would allow us to promote ourselves to new customers and give users a positive impression.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

It was a fast collaboration. It only took them a month to provide us with something tangible. They produced 2D and 3D animations for us, in the form of two videos. They were used during a marketing campaign for a public service.

They were connected to our website. We wanted to impress existing users and tell them a story about what new things they could do on our website. We started with a collaboration on the script and the story connected to all those functionalities. We acted as the product owners of the idea, while they helped us create a story, add elements, and to go from the abstract idea we had to something more tangible for the final video.

What is the team composition?

We had a project manager assigned to our work, along with the people from production—the graphic designer. It was a five-person team in total.

How did you come to work with Craftoon?

We connected with them through their mother agency. We considered a couple of other companies from our market, but a collaboration with someone connected to us was the best option at the time.

How much have you invested with them?

The total cost of their work was $50,000–$100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in January 2018 and finished in February.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They supported us with all the metrics and statistics on their side. Their job was to produce a video and allow us to display this video, making the biggest impression possible. All the statistics were on their side; we simply expected results.

The videos themselves were quite amazing. I can't provide a total view count, but we were happy with the service provided by them. Not only did they produce the material, but also took care of the marketing side, allowing us to outsource all these tasks to one provider.

How did Craftoon perform from a project management standpoint?

They were very flexible in terms of communication. We had an abstract idea for a video, but they gave us the opportunity to discuss it and transformed it into something impressive. They had technical knowledge on video production and maintained a modern, agile collaboration approach that helped us visualize our ideas.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I appreciate their expertise in the field. They not only produce videos, but also provide ideas on how those videos will be used, and how they will be seen by clients and other people. They can create long-term strategies on how the videos will be useful.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don't think so.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

It’s useful to have a basic idea of the story behind a script so that the team can help create flashier and more eye-catching details for the video. They can also help if there's no idea in place, but it’s good to have a script and story idea. As soon as a story is in place, they can produce graphics and motion pictures quickly.
