Metabrite

MetaBrite specializes in extracting every possible detail from consumer purchase receipts. Their software integrates within minutes into any existing mobile application to understand the exact items bought. Current solutions don’t provide accurate product identification; they are also reliant on human transcription. It's costly, inaccurate and not scalable. The primary purpose of our animation was to demonstrate how MetaBrite

solutions answers the problem statement and how they work. We based our concept on a flat design with some 3D elements. The Composition is always centrally set. Black contours are strongly marked here, and white and yellow colors from MetaBrite visual identification become the dominants.

Include a charity

Include a Charity’ is a non-profit organization (NPO) from Australia, whose purpose is to increase the number of people including charities in their wills. That's why the name of the campaign is "the billion-dollar question".

After getting the project, we started looking for the perfect matching style. Further work on the visual side clarified a collage style with a simplified colour palette.

Anti Ageism - social campaign

Anti-ageism is a social campaign targeting Australian citizens. Its goal is to fight ageism - discrimination related to old age. The project was extremely demanding but as we already had had the opportunity to work with this client - we knew that the bar was set pretty high. Starting with a concept stage, we already felt it was worth trying to work with linear design. It took us a long time to arrange the scenes and simplify

messages at the visual level. In such a well-designed scenario, the animator's work, with elements of cut-outs, motion design and time-lapse, was pure pleasure. Robert Ostiak helped us with the sound design and his involvement in this concept from the pre-production stage was crucial for the final result. The effect of this hard work is 2-minute animation, very memorable!

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the corporate communications director for Electrolux, which is headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden. We’re one of the leading global home appliances manufactures.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

Electrolux is an industry leader in the sustainability area. One of the programs we run is promoting zero waste to landfills. We hired Studio Pigeon to create a simple explainer video that we could present to all of our workers in Europe via screens in our factories and during team meetings.

What were your goals for this project?

The idea was to build awareness and engage our employees to reduce, reuse, or recycle waste at work and home.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I was in contact with Studio Pigeon in the past, but this project was the first one that we did together. I hope to work with the Studio Pigeon team again in the future.

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

The video was based on a simple brief proposed by one of our employees. It was developed entirely by Studio Pigeon, and the process was straightforward. At the end, we added a new idea—to create a few posters based on the animation to support the delivery of the key messages to our employees.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

We had regular calls and exchanged emails, proposals, and comments. Studio Pigeon offered us a dedicated and committed team for the project with a strong leader who coordinated communication, including the feedback loop.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The video was presented to our employees one month ago. We received very positive feedback from both senior leaders and workers. The video was developed for Europe, but now peers from other regions will use it.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They worked under time pressure and still accomplished the project on time. The project leader from Studio Pigeon did a very good job.

As it was our first project with Studio Pigeon, we had to align on ways of working at the beginning. Also, we—the Electrolux team—had to learn the video production process, and it was not easy for us. As soon as we understood, the rest of the process went smoothly.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They were flexible and patient in understanding our comments and implemented all of our feedback into the video.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I am sure that if we decide to run a new project with the Studio Pigeon team, our lessons from this first project will pay off.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Studio Pigeon is a member of our organization and the largest 2D animation studio in Poland, with a proven track record of high-quality short films. They were the obvious choice.

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

They produced a storyboard, art designs, and animations. They directed the film and did editing, including sound editing and mixing. They assigned an art director to take care of concept, film direction, and quality control.

We had contact with a project manager throughout, who took care of the schedule. The process was very smooth and they worked flexibly.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the VP of product for Innit. We’re a connected food platform that simplifies and integrates the entire food journey for consumers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

We needed to create animated videos to describe our two core mobile apps.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to create a compelling set of videos that clearly and concisely explained the features and benefits of our products. We wanted to have 15- and 30-second spots that could be used for various social media and marketing needs.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We vetted a long list of agencies via an RFP and Studio Pigeon suited our needs best.

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

They created two spots for each of our products, a 30-second overview and a 10-15-second cut-down. We began by sending them a brief and mood boards, which provided context about our needs, as well as a rough script that outlined the story we wanted to tell. Studio Pigeon thoroughly studied our materials and then refined the script, created characters/personas, and generated a storyboard that brought the project to life. After we approved the storyboard, they transitioned to an animated environment to better visualize the videos’ flow. We went through one more round of approvals, and then they started producing the animation.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

They provided incredibly honest feedback and established a dialogue that allowed us to progress quickly, with high-quality conversations on both sides. There was a strong exchange of communication via email. We needed to meet aggressive timelines and Studio Pigeon was up for the task. They helped us hit our milestones and surpassed our expectations.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Executive leadership received the video incredibly well. The videos have driven an above average cost-per-install in social and marketing efforts, which shows that we succeeded in communicating our value proposition.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Studio Pigeon was very comfortable working with distributed teams, seeing as the time difference didn’t affect the quality or quantity of our conversations. We also saw substantial output overnight. The process was fairly lightweight, given the aggressive timelines, so email and a few spreadsheets sufficed for progress tracking.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They offered honest feedback with a focus on producing a better end-result and making things clearer for the consumer. This perspective made them feel less like an agency and more like a true partner. Their bar for quality and experience was quite high, which we greatly appreciated.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I didn’t see any significant areas of improvement. They should keep up the great work.

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

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

We had contact with one person throughout the process, who ensured communication with the creative team. The agency was receptive and incorporated all of our feedback.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The clip was only just finalized, but we’ve already received positive feedback from our partners and they’ve agreed to share it within their own networks.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We had a responsive point of contact and our workflow was very smooth.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The agency brought experience with animation production and they established an effective process from the outset. They incorporated our feedback well and within agreed timelines, and they delivered a production with excellent value.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I can't think of anything.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO of a tech startup that offers a savings-oriented gifting platform for families and their children.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

We hired them to design, illustrate, and produce an animated video.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to create a 30-second “about us” video for our website.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We researched companies on Google.

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

Studio Pigeon was an active partner all the way from our introductory call to the delivery of the final video. They initially provided us with a concept and preliminary script. It wasn’t quite what we were looking for, so I gave them additional feedback on our creative vision and a basic story. Based on that, they quickly understood our vision and moved in that direction with their designs. While our in-house staff provided the script due to some language limitations on their end, they helped us structure it and provided guidelines for how to edit it. As we went through the script revisions, they presented the illustration concepts. We approved the style and they created the animation using our brand’s colors. The final product ultimately became the centerpiece for our rebranded website.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

It was a very smooth process. We used email, Google Sheets, and Google Drive for sharing revisions.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The final video met my expectations and was of high quality. We’ve received many compliments on the final product from staff and site visitors alike. I’d definitely consider using Studio Pigeon in the future.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The project manager was quick to address all of our questions and concerns. Our biggest challenge, which was pretty minor, was waiting 24 hours for each new round of revisions or being unable to communicate in real time due to time zone differences.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was amazed by their illustration and video production capabilities. Their turnaround time was also impressively quick.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We’re very satisfied overall with the work we received. As I mentioned above, there's a bit of a lag in communication due to the time zone—it’s not because the team is unresponsive. We also ran into minor delays due to their staff being out for holidays, but that didn’t detract from how much I enjoyed working with them.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder and principal of Behaviour Change Partners, a Sydney-based creative agency that specializes in social marketing projects for governments and NGOs.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

We wanted to produce a two-minute animated video that clearly communicated our message with memorability and style.

What were your goals for this project?

The goal of the video is to influence targeted solicitors to raise the topic of bequests to charities whenever they write a legal will for a client.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We asked three firms to pitch us their ideas. Studio Pigeon outperformed the two Sydney-based animation studios. They produced by far the best treatment, offering excellent creative thinking and value for money as well as being the most enthusiastic.

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

We provided the approved script and a guide voiceover. Working from that, Studio Pigeon first developed a storyboard in their proposed style of flat 'collage' animation. Once approved, they went through several stages of animation development, eventually arriving at the final. From there, they completed the video by applying sound design, final voiceover, and music.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

My main project management contact handled all issues and feedback as it came up. I also was able to speak directly with the art directors and animators as needed throughout the process.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The video has been very well received by clients and key stakeholders, including the target market of solicitors.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

I had some initial concerns about working with animators in a different time zone, and whose first language was not English. My worry was unfounded as there was never a problem. The different time zones worked to our advantage on a number of occasions. I could send my feedback at the end of the day Sydney time, and have a well-considered response from Studio Pigeon first thing the following morning.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Studio Pigeon was extremely efficient, and the team was very nice to work with. They offered excellent value. I had no complaints at all.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Everything was as I hoped and expected. It would be unreasonable to expect the next level of creativity and production without a considerably higher price point.

Our main contact was an illustrator and graphic designer, who had support from two video production specialists.
