Education must be fun! And with the most favorite Walt Disney World #animation character fun is guaranteed. Look at Mickey who comes to life in the #AugmentedReality to teach kids ABC. We made this case for a series of children's books from Little Hippo. We are proud to create products for well-known brands.

20th Century Fox Celebrated the 40th Anniversary of Alien with a chilling AR filter in Kinepolis France Cinemas.

All fans of an iconic horror franchise Alien that visited 10 Kinepolis France cinemas on 24th of May for anniversary screenings to see the original movie had an opportunity to feel the horror of an Alien attack like never before thanks to a new AR filter developed for the 20th Century Fox by an AR studio Live Animations in partnership with a French creative agency Wonderdice.

some long hours of approval negotiations with 20th Century Fox that always keep an eye on the quality of the products related to one of the most recognizable movie franchises.

Tic Tac Dance AR App

We have created an AR app for the Tic Tac brand to start a dance flashmob in AR!

By scanning a barcode on a Tic Tac box through this fun app, a user unlocks one of the two dance-monster, could place them on any surface using the latest AR Kit or AR Core features, and hit the Play button to start the party. You can make selfies and videos with dancing monsters and invite friends to take part in the flashmob. Watch the

video to see how it works.

The app became an instant success and a part of a marketing campaign for Tic Tac. It helped to launch a flashmob in the social media, where users shared photos and videos made in the app for a reward.

The app also stimulated purchases of Tic Tac because of its dance energy refuelling mechanism that requires scanning new Tic Tac boxes to refill monsters' dancing energy.

We created an augmented reality app for Sharmuziks - a colorful children book by a young author Tim Brick with cute characters that just cannot stay out of adventure.

The author wanted to make his first book different from other children books. He also wanted to gain more readers and increase sales of the book. So we applied some AR-magic to achive that.

We empowered the book with the AR technology, bringing the

characters to life, adding mini-games and quests, and creating a really interactive reading experience. We incorporated the gyroscope functionality and added exciting puzzles. It has become even easier to fall in love with those little cuties and help them through many challenges!

to dance with their fins to the music of a Krazi bluetooth speaker. Then, there is a charming jellyfish and a lava meteor shower on a paradise island. You better see it with your own two eyes.

Our business tasks for this project was to improve brand recognizability and boost seasonal sales of a new Juiceeks ice cream.

To achieve that, we’ve made an ordinary ice cream into an exciting space adventure in AR by creating a character, story, an entire space universe, and a variety of mini-games activated by scanning a Juiceeks ice cream pack.

Each new pack unlocks a new space adventure: runners,

gyroscope-based immersive quests, puzzles, platformers and other mini-games are on offer for ice cream lovers. And as if that wasn’t enough, we spiced the story up with an interesting storyline, educational content about space, and bonuses to stimulate the target audience’s interest.

The climax of the 2019 Kyiv Lights Festival 2019, the children's characters and vehicles were simultaneously animated in

Augmented Reality around this projection on thousands of spectators' phones. At the same time, these characters were encoded into a radio signal and blasted into space from Ukraine's largest radio telescope! Now their childhood dreams will travel through the universe for eternity.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Project management was carried out in a timely manner, recommendations and corrections were made as we progressed. There was no such project in the world before, and therefore tasks and solutions often changed. The main thing is to invest in terms with high quality.

Feedback summary: 

The finished product has yet to launch, but Live Animations had a good understanding of all they did, and they delivered a good product. Their communication and their attitude were good, and they often went above and beyond the prompt.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a telecom company based in South Korea. I'm an AR production manager. We create AR content for our customers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Live Animations?

I was in charge of creating AR storybooks. They produced two of those books for us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The first book was Cinderella, and the second was The Three Little Pigs. They worked with us on the script, then they moved into design, modeling, and animation. I made some minor changes, but most of the work was on their side. After that, they helped us complete the final package of AR data.

What is the team composition?

My main contact was their production manager, but I also worked directly with their CEO. I'm not sure how big the rest of their team is.

How did you come to work with Live Animations?

I found them through an online search for AR studios.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about $70,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The process took about two and a half months. We started in August 2019, and the project ended in November 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We haven't released the finished product yet, so we don't have any metrics to share at this time. They knew what they were doing, and they always worked as a team. They provided all the data I asked for, and they accommodated some extra requests that weren't part of the original contract. They were a very good partner.

How did Live Animations perform from a project management standpoint?

They had a good attitude, and their communication was good. They were always on time, and they understood my notes. They always addressed my requests right away.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They anticipated everything, and they often came back to me with better ideas. They provided things that I didn't ask for, and they produced a much better-quality product than we anticipated. I was pleasantly surprised by their willingness to go beyond the scope.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We faced some issues with scheduling, though they always returned with good products. Their timing wasn't that bad, but it's the only thing I can think of that could improve.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I would highly recommend them, but I don't have any specific advice for future customers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

This project helped us to grow the audience among kids and youth that love tech and proved once again that we are the leader of Ukraine’s press market. The rubric has become popular not only among kids, but also among their parents.

The fact that we started using AR in printed media caused a great interest in the professional field. I’ve talked about our company’s experience in several interviews for marketing and media resources. Also, one of Ukraine’s most popular TV channels “Ukraina," aired a program about our AR introduction in a newspaper, which helped facilitate public interest in our media and position it as progressive and modern, not something that is about to become history.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Everything was top notch.

The speed of reaction to our inquiries and requests and the quality of the provided AR layouts.

The project is still underway, with high-quality products produced thus far, always delivered on time, and with helpful advice from the Live Animations team. The team is dedicated and professional, working on the project in its entirety to ensure excellent results.

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 advertising manager for Ural Dumplings Factory, a Russian producer of different kinds of dumplings. We have several websites, and one of them was created specifically for our new project.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Live Animations?

We needed help with a new marketing strategy to promote our products.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’ve helped us develop our whole strategy around augmented reality, creating an iOS and Android application and helping us check it. The Android version is finished, and the iOS one is in process. They gave us professional technical assessments and some creative ideas on how we could develop our project. It uses a combination of 5G technology and viral marketing.

What is the team composition?

We communicated via Skype with 2–3 people, but the work was done very quickly, so we think that at least 20 people were involved.

How did you come to work with Live Animations?

It was difficult to find a good company that could help us implement our project. We found Live Animations by chance online and realized that they were high-level specialists, and a leading augmented reality developer.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them at the end of 2018 and the collaboration is ongoing. The development of the app took place in March 2019, in a matter of weeks.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We appreciated their work very much. They delivered what we wanted, and they helped us with some questions—we’re sure that they’re one of the best companies in the world. They’re real professionals in the market, and we would recommend them to other companies that want to develop augmented reality products.

We haven’t started using the applications yet as the project is still in development. We hope that, in the near future, the augmented reality applications will improve our profit and help us become the first Russian company with a marketing strategy that involves augmented reality.

How did Live Animations perform from a project management standpoint?

They were the only company that agreed to help implement the project in its entirety, in the time set by our main directors. They did everything according to our schedule, met all the deadlines, and didn’t cause any problems in terms of time management. Their staff is smart and creative, and we wish them success.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s their creativity. They offered us several ideas for free, and we could choose any of them to develop. Everything was done according to our deadlines too, which I appreciated a lot.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t think so. We’ve always worked collaboratively, and they were ready to help us if we had a question.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

No, I can't name anything specific.
