Portfolio

This time we worked in collaboration with a blockchain-based company. Their team created an entirely new legal entity called Smart Company (SC) and turned to us to help their team with film creation telling the story of the company. Their service is compliant, 100% on the blockchain and completely paperless.
For this project, we created cool 3D robots that help our nerd

character build his rocket. Follow the journey of our character and enjoy the mix of 3D and frame-by-frame animations created by our talented artists. Stay tuned for more videos!

LastSwab offers a perfect solution, a reusable alternative that can replace 1000+ single-use cotton swabs. Let’s make single-use cotton swabs a thing of the past and buy this new cool eco-friendly invention to take the first step towards preserving the environment.

Sustainable living is pretty hard. You have to stick to different restrictions to

reduce unnecessary waste and change your daily habits. Luckily, nowadays a lot of organizations are encouraging to save the endangered environment. They promote 4R environmental principles that can make the world a better place for living. Of course, they are pretty simple, but where to start? You can begin with a small investment, for example, change your regular cotton swabs to a sustainable alternative. 

We created a few different swab designs to meet our client’s expectations. The swab had to look like a fluffy cloud and be instantly associated with something clean and pure. In fact, the design process was quite challenging, but our team managed to find the most suitable one. Enjoy!

We’re excited to share our new animated commercial created for Traffic Ticket App. Traffic Ticket App gives an opportunity to pay for a traffic ticket online within seconds and save your time and money.

explainer video.

Check out the results, folks!

Qdooz - 2D animated explainer video

Have you ever felt anxious while looking for a job? It can be hard to create a CV that will show your unique skills and character traits to get the position you want. Luckily, Qdooz service is exactly what you need. It gives you free access to a library of useful advice from leading coaches and mentors who can help you to identify your strengths and weaknesses. 

We had a perfect opportunity to collaborate

with Qdooz team and make an animated commercial for them. The main goal of this video was to explain this company’s motto “CV creation has never been easier”. Having kept this in mind, we decided to focus more on character and her actions than on the environment so that the background elements don’t distract attention from our main heroine. The character and her journey through different stages of personal development were the key points for this explainer video and we thought we managed to consider it. 

We tried to make this project interesting and catchy, so we opted for a mix of 2D and frame-by-frame animation. It helped us to create cool transitions and make the animation as smooth as possible.

Stuttering - 2D animated explainer video

We were proud to work on a project for an explainer video about Cluttering. Everyone knows about Stuttering that prevents a fluent flow of words and causes blockages in speech, but what about Cluttering? Cluttering speakers often talk too fast, they try to say too many words in too short a time. This is often accompanied by spurts in the speech and problems to keep the speed under control. As a result, their message does not

always arrive well with their conversation-partners, which can lead to misunderstanding and miscommunication. That’s why it’s very important for people who have a cluttering speech to receive the right help. Head to the link to see a full project: https://hound-studio.com/portfolio/st...

AGRIO

We always try to improve our videos using new techniques during our video production process, one of them is a combination of 2D and 3D. After getting a new project, we always analyze all possible ways of its presentation and it turns out that such a mixture of two types of animation works in the best way.

This project was made for the first-ever artificially intelligent crop disease and pest alert system. It’s occupied

with a detection of pests in early stages and helps farmers to prevent yield losses. We guess that we’ve managed to explain the service in the simple, but engaging way, showing some minor details in 2D and more important in 3D.

This region is a beautiful place that has a lot of things to brag about. This area is well-known for its highly educated professionals and talented people. But due to the lack of opportunities to pursue a career in own town, a lot of young people and families leave this place towards the bigger cities. Our mission was to explain that this region is running empty and the government should take action as soon as possible to make

this region a better place to live and work.

Feedback summary: 

Hound Studio's video was published and used as marketing collateral. The workflow was very effective and communication was clear. There were very few misunderstandings. The client was happy with the final result. 

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We run company incorporation fully paperless and digital and has developed a dashboard to allow business owners to automate corporate governance steps without having to wait for incorporation agents. This solution helps to save more than 85% of time and 75% of money compared to traditional solutions.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Hound Studio?

We needed a video to present our product, the Smart Company, for both our website as well as marketing campaigns. As this is a new product in a sector that traditionally is not very exciting the challenge to create something unique and engaging was very high.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a 60 seconds video, able to explain exactly what is a Smart Company and why such a solution is needed in the current market.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We have spoken with more than 20 firms, we were looking for a very fresh style and visuals that were clearly communicating high standards. The portfolio provided by the vendor was something that caught our attention from the first moment. After communicating with the team we understood we were a good match for them.

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

The video is divided in 2 major parts: Problem and Solutions. It was quite difficult to come up with a story board that was unique but still able to explain exactly what are the pain points of the current corporate governance and how easy our solution can solve those issues. The team has been fantastic, running multiple meetings with us and ensure they were understanding exactly what was required. After the story board got approved we put full trust in the team. We had around 4 edits in total and the team has been supportive along all the way.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

We had a very heavy communication at the beginning in order to ensure the story line was clear, after that the vendor prepared the first version and collected feedback. We are probably picky clients and we tried to get things perfect to the frame. The vendor was very helpful and positive about every request. They also suggested many changes to make things better based on their experience and skills.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The video got published on our website. I guess both parties are happy with the final result as we are both using the product as marketing collaterals.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The vendor suggested a worflow that matched our requests. We were both on the same page and this made working together smooth and easy. We had access to the documents the vendor was working on so that helped us to provide feedbacks in a fast way. Email communication was clear and we had only 2 calls meeting in total: one at the beginning and one at the end before final delivery.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The experience and skills totally at high class. One thing I loved and I didn't find common in many companies is the fact we were able to communicate with every person involved in the project without having to rely only on one point of communication. This ensured there was no misunderstanding and the project got shipped fast.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We got options for every decision: visuals, voice, music. Everything was communicated properly and if we were not on the same page the team was there to ensure we were back on track. This, in simple, is how things are done.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

We where back and fourth with the look of our product. At no point, did I become frustrated with their process—they were very cooperative.  And the result was great.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

very good, a little long, but i believe that was a fault on both sides

What did you find most impressive about this company?

that they created the storyboard with almost no help from me

Are there any areas for improvement?

An introduction to clutch would be great. And a presented timeline to be more aligned would be great.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the owner of a video production company which focuses mainly on animation video and motion graphics. We work for a diversity of clients on themes covering government issues, health care, commercial solutions and so on. Our company is called Fiks Film.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Hound Studio?

We outsource many of our projects to Hound Studio. They are a really reliable and talented partner on our projects. Never to disappoint us or our clients.

What were your goals for this project?

To make a video with an awesome appearance combining 2D with 3D. But, in that quest for awesomeness, the most important issue was; Not loosing track of getting our message across to our audience. The two combined at the highest possible level is always the goal (of course always with taking budgets into account).

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

That I don't exactly remember. What I know is that a long long time ago we game across some of their projects. We did like what we see, but didn't feel the urge yet to set up a collaboration. Many months/A few years later, we made the decision (by seeing the way Hound Studio kept improving) to build a successful collaboration with Alex and his team.

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

After we wrote our script, made the sketches, set up a style direction and arranged the voice-actor, it was Hound Studio's turn to shine. - They delivered some very pretty style themes of which we (together with our client) choose one. - Then they made the sketches come alive into their illustrations. Those illustrations really gave the whole project the feeling we were looking for. - After some revisions and approval of the illustrations by our client, the animation process was leaded by Alex. He guided the project towards a very satisfying final result. Thanks again, Alex.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

We had one person we had contact with, which was Alex. The revisions we had in mind were agreed upon almost always and if not, Alex and his team came up with even better ideas. We had enough space to deliver input during the whole process.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

This is the link for the animation video: https://vimeo.com/344767130 The final animation did meet all our expectations and more. We were really happy we could work on this project with Alex and his talented team members. The feedback we received from the client was very complimenting.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Really effective. It was like we were collaborating with employees or partners being seated in our own office. Fast response times and a smooth process.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their readiness to help and their feeling for design! They are always there if we need them. They're fast and innovative.

Are there any areas for improvement?

For now I couldn't think of any improvements whatsoever. Really happy with this collaboration.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I tested their work in a previous project and was happy with the quality, price and responsiveness.

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

We wrote a script of the text that would be used during the presentation and asked the provider to show us some options of animation style that we wanted to project behind the speaker to illustrate the story in a fun and creative way. We then selected the style and started the project of creation with a very well organized feedback process

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

They use Krock to publish new versions of the work and exchange feedback and comments (including exchange of docs and pics via the platform). They were very responsive at each step of the process and really tried their best to accomodate what we wanted to implement, despite the very tight deadline

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We were able to have a 8 min presentation done at the global conference with the animation running in the background during the whole presentation.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Very efficient, despite the timezone difference. They were working on our comments and we would receive the new version by the next morning.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I particularly appreciated their responsiveness and flexibility. They were able to deliver a high quality animation within a very tight deadline.

Are there any areas for improvement?

If I had to mention one, it would be to be a bit more proactive in the final design proposal (meaning the last details of the design work). Part of the work could have been more polished before sending us the proposal, but to be fair I believe this was due to the tight deadline more than anything else.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Hound Studio successfully created the video on a very short timeline. Sometimes there wasn't much response to constructive feedback, but the communication was smooth and easy. 

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a marketing manager of a SaaS startup. We have 10 people in the team and 1800+ customers from more than 50 countries.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Hound Studio?

We wanted to bring awareness to our new feature and explain it in a very simple way.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to increase demo requests and sales with the video.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Someone advised us to use this company first and we've already done a few projects together. Price for services has been very important.

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

We have submitted a draft and the team started to work on it shortly. We have been in a hurry with strict deadlines and the team has managed to deliver.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

We could give feedback on several occasions, during the script, storyboard, illustration and animation phases.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Not yet. We have just received the video.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Communication was smooth and easy. We used krock for all comms.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They have been executing REALLY fast and we got our video done very fast on a very good level.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I would expect them to be more pro-active in referring to feedback. We don't have any video experience and a few times we mentioned "this is unclear", we had to come up with solutions ourselves, rather then wait for them to give possible ways to solve the problem.
