An international development services firm focused on education, behavior change, peacebuilding and socioeconomic development . I direct our digital development team.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Frontiers Animation?

Frontiers has supported several projects for us from animation production for elearning content, marketing to in this particular case animating a game concept and producing a trailer and demo game.

What were your goals for this project?

To via beautiful and relatable character development, storyline and animation, engage children in language learning and improve their psycho-social well-being. The trailer video was to serve as our pitch to donors/clients.

SOLUTION

How did you select Frontiers Animation?

Frontiers presented to us their capabilities, and while we connected with other groups, it was evident that Frontiers could be a long term partner. Frontiers have a successful portfolio of work for education and behavior change, and we were impressed by the staff we interacted with.

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

We had a couple design sessions with relevant subject matter experts and the energy that Frontiers brought to the sessions was infectious. They then came back with potential characters, animations, storyboards, and in record time we had an animated video trailer.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

Frontiers' account manager was tremendous in staying in touch and eliciting feedback. In several projects, we have had several revisions and Frontiers had been amenable.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

The video trailer successfully earned us funding from a client, and with Frontiers we further developed the concept and produced an interactive demo.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We had a close working relationship with Frontiers and felt as though we were one team in one organization.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their work product is amazing. The graphics and animation are stunning. Their energy, immersion and spiraling with ideas is truly creative. Lastly, their price in unbeatable for the quality.

Graphics and video production is their strength, so am glad to see them double down on that.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I work for Stanford University in a health promotion role.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Frontiers Animation?

As universities plan to bring students back to campus in the safest ways possible, we needed to find ways to communicate the most important public health practices that we would be asking students to follow upon their return.

We needed to reorient students to what life would look like on campus for the forseeable future and to do so in a way that was easily digestible and demonstrated empathy.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goals were to encourage positive health behaviors that are proven measures to reduce spread of covid-19. We anticipated that this would be a critical piece in training students on these health guidelines so that everyone returning to campus had the same baseline knowledge and knew what to expect.

SOLUTION

How did you select Frontiers Animation?

We found Frontiers Animation after seeing a video they made for Stanford Medicine.

We considered working with one other group but ultimately decided to work with Frontiers Animation for several reasons; they have a vast team that were able to turn around our project on a very short timeline, they demonstrated a deep commitment to representing our campus culture and doing research to meet our needs, and they were extremely responsive and passionate about the project.

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

The Frontiers Animation team was able to take our ideas and run with them. We presented a preliminary script and from there they presented mock ups every step of the way. They created storyboards, narrator options, animated stills, etc.

They chose a chibi art style which worked very well for our student population and they were extremely mindful of representing our diverse community within the video.

They also did a tremendous amount of research and created characters with subtle nods to cultural aspects of stanford that were incredibly creative and showed a level of commitment to the project that we were extremely impressed with.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

They garnered feedback every step of the way and were able to accommodate changes throughout the process which was hugely helpful as we continued to receive changing guidelines from the state, county, and university.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have received excellent feedback on the video. It was the most clicked link in a resource email sent to students. It has been live for 48 hours and has already received thousands of views.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Using fram.io was very helpful. It made it so easy to comment on different parts of the video through the editing process. Everything worked very efficiently and Mustafa and his team were highly responsive throughout; even during off hours which was incredible.

They managed working with us from a different time zone and on an incredibly tight timeline.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their work speaks for itself and is beautiful and well thought out, but what makes this company stand out is their passion for the work.

They were just as excited to create this project as we were and brought a level of energy and creativity that made the entire project feel fun. They also are extremely customer friendly and accommodating.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I cannot think of anything I would change about my experience working with Frontiers Animation. We had high expectations and they continually exceeded them every step of the way.
