A high-quality + high-impact 2D Character driven motion graphics video in the timelines - which were 2 weeks.

We had the script locked. The team then started working on the storyboards and character finalisation. Once the characters, the styling and the mood board was completed. We got into the animation and the final packaging.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Unisolar is the project deliveries company. We apply international experience in implementing large-scale solar projects in combination with unique practical solutions in the Eastern European market over the past 10 years. I'm currently working as marketing manager in UniSolar

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Spor&Friends?

We have a very complex production process. And our main problem is to explain what will happen after potential investor will make an investment in our company. How the work process will go, and how his money will works. This process is divided into several stages, and we decided to make a video Explainer about this process flow. For our potential investors, to make the whole process simpler to understand.

What were your goals for this project?

We hope that our potential investors will understand our complex productions process in an easy way, with nice and clear animation. This will helps them, to make final decisions faster, and will save time for both sides.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We choose approximately 10 animation studios from different parts of Europe. After, we make a schedule with skype calls. In skype calls we tried to understand is the vendor a professional, is he a client-friendly and response. We also explored their portfolios and works. A very important point for us was also the ability of the vendor to make all in one place. I mean animation, illustration, script, sound design and so on. Taking to attention all these factors we choose Spor&Friends. They are really high-class professionals

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

Vendor role was full-cycle video-explainer. So they made for us all starting from the script (based on exploring our company) and finished with sound design. When our project starts, we have a meeting with the vendor, they ask several questions for understanding more clearly about the project details. Then we have a long conversation about our company. The vendor had made the script later based on this information and our needs. We also had provided them our presentation and brand materials. Spor&Friends really high-class professionals, they have the talent to integrate into your business and explore the problem, and then make an awesome script, that describes your problem and shows the solution in way of modern and high-quality animation.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

Work process with this vendor is very clear and nice. The vendor makes a clear storyboard and writes all timings when and what will be ready. They always share with as the work process and keep us informed about current work stage. I'm was not asked the vendor how many people were involved form their side, but I always contacted with their Art Director Valerii, and project manager Vladislav. Also, we spoke several times with their lead designer Alina. After work was finished we have two rounds of feedback, all was clear and done nicely, there were only a few minor changes from our side.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

After we launch the video, we have received many positive feedback from our potential and current investors, they said that the work process had become much more clear for them, and they have more understanding about what will going on after they will make investments. This is the most positive factor for us, and this is increased our chances to get more investments and also get them much faster. Also, we used this video in presentations and exhibitions.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was extremely effective. We had used slack for more convenient work. Vendors always had kept us updated during all production stages. They also had make all work in time, and even a little bit earlier

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The most impressive point for me is that they are really high-class professionals, and they always know the solution. They have a unique ability to explain very complex things in an easy and modern way

Are there any areas for improvement?

Working with Spor&Friends has been a real pleasure. I learned a lot and am very happy with their work
