Feedback summary: 

Stormy Studio took over after an experience with another vendor left a third-party client dissatisfied. Stormy Studio's high-quality work saved the account, illustrated by the third-party client posting the content on their website. They are creative specialists who work well under pressure.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I work for a video production agency where we outsource talent globally to help produce videos. I am one of the Client Services Directors. My role is to oversee client accounts and production for videos.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

We were using another animation team but my client was not satisfied with the work being produced. They needed a bigger team that could work faster and develop unique animation styles. We chose Stormy to get us out of a bad situation with a client and their work saved the account!

What were your goals for this project?

The goal was to ensure the client was happy with the project. They wanted to cancel the project but we switched teams and got Stormy Studio on board and they saved the project. The videos are now displayed on their websites

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We had previously used Stormy Studio for other projects but never for this client. After this project Stormy Studio has become one of our regular animation teams for a lot of our client's videos. We have access to over 10,000 creative teams through our production platform, and we picked them, which says a lot. The deciding factors in picking them was their talent, their fast communication and fast delivery.

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

The team had to develop unique animations from scratch for 7 videos. The video topic was very healthcare and technology specific so it was a hard brief to deliver to. The team had to develop animations in 2D but make it look like a 3D space, which was achieved. Stormy had to work long hours and over weekends to ensure we met deadlines, which they did!

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

There were 2-3 animators working on this project at any given moment. Their role was to animate the videos. They were very generous in terms of rounds of feedback, they just wanted to deliver the project successfully and didn't complain about how many amends there were!

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The client did not cancel the project or account with us and has not put up multiple projects in the pipeline which we have not engaged with Stormy Studio to assist with. This project was important for my client in terms of getting their message about their software out to their consumers. All our goals were exceeded for this project. The client LOVES the videos!

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

I don't think the team could have assisted us any better than they did. I was calling and texting them all hours of the day and they always answered and met their deadlines.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their strengths are communication, creativity, staying calm under pressure, listening to the client's requests and delivering on time all within a reasonable budget. I like working with Stormy because I feel I can get in contact with them at any time. That is key for vendors we work with.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No there are no areas for improvement.

Feedback summary: 

Stormy Studios successfully made the video, adjusting well to cultural and contextual requirements. They paid great attention to detail and had a superb design style. Supportive and responsive, the studio quickly made changes and built a partnership with the nonprofit.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Head of External Relations for Malaria Consortium, a global health non-profit organisation, dedicated to the comprehensive control of malaria and other childhood infectious diseases (pneumonia, diarrhoea), malnutrition and dengue.

My role is pivotal in ensuring the positioning of the organisation with external audiences through a wide range of communications and advocacy activities.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

We needed an explainer animation that combined real life imagery with animated sequences that covered the complex reasons why women do not always take up preventive treatment for malaria when pregnant.

Pregnant women in malaria-endemic countries are very vulnerable to malaria and the disease can have severe and even fatal consequences for both them and their unborn child.

What were your goals for this project?

The goal was to get across quite complex but sensitive issues in a short video that could speak to a wide range of audiences - both in affected countries and globally.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We developed a tender document, and drafted the narrative, then sent out to several agencies who provided animation services.

All responses were assessed and compared against specified criteria such as cost, experience, style, by the Head of ER and an independent procurement committee to ensure adherence to internal policy and external Charity Commission procurement rules.

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

The script was finalised internally, with some inputs from Stormy Studio with respect to timing and structure. The design process was discussed and story boarded.

This was adjusted to fit with cultural and contextual requirements for such a sensitive film. The music options were shared and discussed, as was the VO choice. The whole process was very collaborative.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

We developed a one-to-one relationship, as their response time was excellent and they were very supportive.

We usually caught at least once a week and any small changes/adjustments were done almost immediately to pave the way for the next major phase of development.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The project was very successful both in design and in the collaborative style of Stormy Studio. I am very happy with that as it isn't always the case (I have worked with other animators).

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Very effective workflow. Any delays on either side were acknowledged and allowed for.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Superb design style and attention to detail. Extremely responsive to requests for change/adjustments and determined to find solutions. Very good creative approach to illustrating a complex issue and finding the links.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No
