Queen - Bohemian Rhapsody [Lyric Video]

We collected all the parts of Bohemian Rhapsody in one video. As in the song, we retained the difference in style and in visualization, brightening it with smooth transitions. Bohemian Rhapsody is a very unusual song for a single. It is 2 times longer than the usual singles, without a chorus combining disparate musical styles and containing lyrics which eschew conventional love-based narratives for allusions to murder and

nihilism. However, this song has become one of the most popular in world culture. Our lyric video is a tribute to Queen, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. This video is a tribute to Queen, not for commercial use.

2D video for TED-Ed "A Midsummer Night's Dream"

By the light of the moon, a group sneaks into the woods, where they take mind-altering substances, switch it up romantically and brush up against creatures from another dimension. “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” sees Shakespeare play with the boundary between illusion and reality - and dramatize the possibility that life is but a dream. Iseult Gillespie shares what makes this play a timeless classic.

The dangerous race for the South Pole for Ted-Ed

By the early 1900’s, nearly every region of the globe had been visited and mapped, with only two key locations left: the North and South Poles. After two Americans staked claim to reaching the North Pole, a Norwegian explorer and a British naval officer each set out for the last unmapped region in what newspapers called a “Race to the Pole.”

Our recent video for Ted-Ed explores how the Women’s Suffrage Parade on Washington in 1913 helped women secure the right to vote in the United States through the 19th amendment.

Feedback summary: 

Internal feedback on the promotional video has been positive. Wow-How Studio took scope changes in stride, dedicating to pleasing their clients. Their customer service and collaborative approach supplemented their professional management style. Expect a responsive and helpful production team.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We’re a medical image analysis company that develops software for radiologists. I’m the strategic marketing manager in charge of product road map assessment and online marketing.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Wow-How Studio?

We hired Wow-How Studio to create a promotional video about one of our software products to increase online leads. We didn’t have the internal capabilities to develop such a video.

What were your goals for this project?

Our company wanted a professional promo video that gave a good impression of the software.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were found through an online search. We compared quality, video production expertise, and price.

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

Considering it required detailed knowledge about the radiology industry, we internally created the script. The storyboarding was done collaboratively before Wow-How Studio took on the rest of video production.

What was your vendors’ project management or feedback process?

Wow-How Studio was readily available for the assignment. We had close interactions with Denis (Former Junior Project Manager, Wow-How Studio), Bohdan (Business Development Manager, Wow-How Studio), and Mariia (Line Producer, Wow-How Studio). I worked with their team on all the feedback.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s important to deliver a video that our CEO would be pleased with. It took multiple rounds of reviews and even a complete turnaround at one point. Their team was understanding and helpful, leading to a nice collaboration. All feedback from my colleagues has been extremely positive.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Most of the time, the workflow was effective. We didn’t use any tools to manage our processes. Processing of feedback was dependent on my response to emails. Their team was quick with replies.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I’m amazed by the service Wow-How Studio delivered. They were customer-centric, focused on helping and changing whatever we needed to make us happy. This was really impressive.

Are there any areas for improvement?

It took longer for the project than anticipated, but that was more our fault than theirs. I’m not sure if they could’ve done anything differently.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We originally tried to find a vendor that could develop interactive animations, but most could only do stand-alone animations. We went back and forth, changing the description of the project based on feedback from the best candidates. Wow-How Studio patiently stayed with us through that madness. 

Describe the project in detail.

We worked with Wow-How Studio to develop vector images for 10 different ships, which we used in eight animations.

What was the team composition?

We had a business development manager and team of artists.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

We hired Wow-How Studio to create an explainer video for our new lead generation project.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted the video to engage new clients, build brand awareness, and increase conversion rates. Our goal was to use the video across several digital channels to target our audience.

SOLUTION

We used Upwork and Fiverr to find online freelancing services. After shortlisting three companies out of the 25 proposals, we chose Wow-How Studio because of their experience and outstanding communication process.

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

Although we brought a few ideas to the project, we were completely satisfied with some of Wow-How Studio’s previous work, so we asked them to create a similar style for us. They produced the explainer video based on the characters and animations we expressed interest in. Their team wrote the scripts using our pitch, storyboarded the video, and handled all the illustrations, animations, and style slides. They also improved our voiceover and gave us key feedback.

While it’s still too early to provide results, the people that have seen the video reacted positively and easily understood the product’s purpose. Wow-How Studio’s friendly and supportive team took their time to gather all information on the company to produce a creative and well-thought-out video.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the head of design at a company that creates plush toy characters for promotional purposes. We also have our own plush toy concepts with background stories. I monitor projects and give a face to every creation and idea.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Wow-How Studio?

We needed a promotional trailer for the presentation of our new plush toy concept and hired them for the task.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to show the story that's behind our characters and the right way to use the offered function on the toy to the customer. We also wanted a final scene to show the whole range of the existing characters.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We compared some studios that could manage this type of project online and then decided to work with Wow-How Studio because of their modern appearance, references, and price.

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

We didn’t have a clear idea at the start of how to make the trailer, but with Wow-How Studio’s references, we decided to create an animation with handmade illustrations. The video shows the idea behind our concept through a short story. Wow-How Studio created an alternate story to ours that was shorter and focused more on the function of the toy.

Furthermore, they also showed us how we could do different parts of the work together. We received suggestions and sketches of the characters we wanted to use in the animation. We also talked about the details in the background and decided on the final stuff together.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

I know we had a team assigned, but other than the project leader, I don’t know how many were involved. We received a timeline that detailed several stages. They wrote the rough script and made sketches of the main characters and backgrounds. We discussed the scenes together and got suggestions on how to bring everything down into a short and effective outcome.

We also asked for music and received a nice selection to choose from. After about three rounds of feedback and a few small changes, we were satisfied with the results.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We first showed the trailer to one customer and got a really good feeling from their reaction and positive feedback. They easily understood the function of the product we made. We don’t have more results to share yet since we’re still at the beginning of the campaign.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We were very satisfied with the workflow between their team and ours. It was a very comfortable and friendly collaboration.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We were amazed by the good energy that they brought to the work. We felt understood and supported the whole time. They also tried to gather all the information about us that they could to get something creative out of it. The project leaders were always kind and courteous, and the team behind them acted professional and fast.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We had a good working process together, which gave us comfort in knowing that we had professional help. There’s nothing that should be done differently.

Feedback summary: 

Communicating clearly from the start, Wow-How Studio inspired confidence throughout the project. While there were some grammar issues in the script, the final video was well-received. Their ability to turn constructive feedback into implementable, on-time deliverables was a hallmark of their work.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there. 

I'm a lead engineer and developer at Easy Smart Home LLC. We’re a startup that develops mobile apps specifically for wearable devices such as smartwatches.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Wow-How Studio?

I needed help to market my app properly. I wanted to create an explainer video to get investors interested.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

Wow-How Studio started by asking me to describe what the app does and what the business is about. I gave them a summary of the value proposition, and they came up with various options for video styles. They showed me videos they’d done for past clients with different types of voiceovers, animation, themes, colors, and music. I chose the one that I liked best. Then they took my summary and broke it down into steps. They created dialogue for the voice over. Then they had me choose music. After I approved the rough drafts of each stage, they put everything together into a final video. 

What is the team composition?

I interacted with three people. The outreach relations manager led client communication. The project manager oversaw the project and provided cost estimates. The producer was responsible for technical delivery of the video.

How did you come to work with Wow-How Studio? 

I was referred to them by the consulting agency that I used to build my app.

How much have you invested with them? 

I spent $1,200, $600 up front and $600 on delivery.

What is the status of this engagement? 

The project took place between January–February 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I'm just getting the video up on the web now, so it’s too early to measure investor interest. The initial feedback is mostly positive. I like it, but I'm not sure I’d have chosen the same script or animations if I had to do it again. Some aspects aren't totally clear from a user's perspective. I would have liked it to be more direct, but overall I'm satisfied. It's very good quality for the price I paid. 

How did Wow-How Studio perform from a project management standpoint? 

Wow-How Studio’s team is very professional. I used Skype to communicate with the project manager and interacted with the technical lead by email. She’d send me proposals for me to approve or add comments. The combination of Skype and email worked well. They were responsive and delivered what they promised. 

What did you find most impressive about them? 

Their communication was great. Wow-How Studio told me exactly when we'd be done. I haven't worked with a lot of digital agencies, but their solid communication really stood out. I also liked that they gave me the option to choose from various styles. Plus, they have a good reputation with their other clients. 

Are there any areas they could improve? 

They definitely could improve their language skills. Because English is not their native language, their drafts of the script weren’t grammatically correct. I had to go in and correct them myself. They were fine with my changes, but that would be an area for improvement. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Make sure you’re happy before you agree on each step. Once they go on to the next step, Wow-How Studio can't go back and change things. I accepted something and then later didn't like it, but it was too late to make a change. Really take your time, analyze every step, and ask a lot of questions.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the program manager of the e-learning platform Skillex. We teach soft skills and package our courses in a convenient, impactful format.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Wow-How Studio?

We hired Wow-How Studio to produce animated 2D graphic elements for our Introductory English course. We needed a 15-second motion graphic in which two characters exchange small talk within a setting that could pass for an open office space or a coffee shop. 

What were your goals for this project?

The goal was to illustrate common social interactions to enhance learning new material. It was intended for people who already know some English, but struggle to use it.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We posted a job on Upwork and chose Wow-How Studio because they had an impressive showreel and reasonable prices. The fact that they spoke Russian was also a plus.

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

In the videos, two characters walk towards each other and exchange small talk. They provided source files, which allowed as to adjust elements based on the context, replace dialogue, and reuse the video multiple times.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

In the beginning, I was skeptical about working with both the project manager and the producer. Instead of adding new steps in the chain of decision-making, however, it significantly optimized the process.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The high-quality video entirely satisfied our needs. We were particularly happy with the design and complex facial expressions of the male character. Unfortunately, we're in the beta stage, and the course is not public.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The project manager was responsive and receptive, and the producer communicated our requests to the freelancer well.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed by their high work standards and strong self-awareness of the quality of their deliverables. The studio was forthcoming about the quality of the animation. They insisted on making improvements before even getting our feedback. Considering our modest budget, they did a marvelous job.

Are there any areas for improvement?

The character walk was the most complex, challenging part of the video. The artist clearly delivered the best product they could with our small budget.
