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.

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.”

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.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

We hired Wow-How to create a 3D animated process video for a unique process and installation we had.

What were your goals for this project?

The goals were to create a video explaining the unique process in order to show the customer the benefits of this process.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I searched the web for animators and saw that Wow-How had good quality and good reviews.

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

The video is a 3D animation of a unique filtration process for gas turbines. It shows the airflow through the various filtration processes.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

The team worked with us on a few rounds of feedback on various stages of the development.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The workflow was good with lots of communication between our team and theirs on any revisions so both teams understood what the results would be.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the owner of a video marketing agency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

We hired Wow-How Studio to help us create an animated video at very short notice.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to create a stunning animated video in an unreasonable amount of time.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

In the past we'd already worked together on another project, so I remembered the professionality and adherence to deadlines. I never hesitated to contact them.

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

As the owner of a video marketing agency, I find it very hard to find freelancers that can adapt to my point of view and my graphic design style. But Wow-How knows how to do this. We gave them an unreasonable amount of time to finish a project, but they managed to do it as a team. They worked long days, until early in the morning to make sure our deadline was met.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

The communication of Wow-How is above normal. They take the lead in your project (with all the respect) and work together as a team to finish it in time. I think there were about 6 people involved in the project, but they assigned 1 account manager so we didn't have to deal with all the different people.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The video we made together was appreciated a lot by our client. They are very satisfied so that makes us as an agency very happy.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Excellent communication, excellent adherence to deadlines. From the beginning, they gave us a feeling of trust that everything would be alright. No false commitments, they first think whether they can do it or not. If they go for it, they will succeed.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The most impressive part was that they stayed kind and at ease, although there was a very short deadline.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Not in this project.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm product designer #1 at Forethought.ai. Our company makes customer support automation software for enterprise companies. I oversee all design work and help manage delivery of marketing and content production.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

We're a startup that needed video production and don't have the time or resources to divert away from design and development of our products. Wow How was able to provide the expertise we needed to deliver a well crafted explainer video in a reasonable time frame.

What were your goals for this project?

Our aim was to have a concise, high quality video that we could use on our site and in our sales communications with potential customers.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We discovered the team on Upwork and engaged them there. They're one of the more highly recommended teams on there and their cost range was within the budget we had as a small startup.

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

The final video involves animation of the agreed upon storyboard and a voice over that conveys our messaging about our product. After nailing down the messaging, storyboard and animation styles we went back and forth with the Wow How team to make adjustments based on the feedback from internal stakeholders on our side.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

Wow How had 2 managers communicating with us via email about the deliverables. They also had instructions for us at every stage about how to best provide them with input on the changes we needed. They were able to convey our feedback directly to their team without any meaning being lost in transit.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We haven't started using the video yet. Our sales team was extremely happy to have the final video to help them and they gave it both thumbs up. We expect sales leads and website visitors to respond positively to the video.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Wow How's team was extremely organized and did an excellent job of communicating with us in a timely manner. They were able to execute changes and provide great feedback on the best direction to take things for the video.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their team was always on the ball with their deliverables. Even without a well defined creative brief they were able to give us exactly what we needed in the end.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We're extremely happy with the work the team has done and look forward to working with them in the future. There are no complaints from us.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm a PR manager NIX Solutions Ltd., a custom software development company. With our 1500 expert-level software engineers, we have built an impressive portfolio of over 3000 projects. We have successfully expanded from a humble garage startup into a powerhouse company with partner companies in Israel, Western Europe, Scandinavia, Canada, and the U.S.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

Our company was looking for an agency with a full cycle of visual development to create a marketing video about our company's services. The video needed to have a recognizable brand identity, corporate style elements, and high-quality visual development. It was our first experience of working with a creative studio, and we’re so glad we’ve chosen the right partners!

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to see an increase in traffic on our website and leads' flow. The video would need to be uploaded on a website and shared through all social media platforms. Also, we wanted to show it at conferences to briefly tell others about us visually.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Word of mouth. I'd heard that Wow-How studio worked with famous clientele, so I found their showreel. Our team was impressed by the variety of styles Wow-How handles and the high quality of the motion-graphics. After I contacted their sales department, I saw that they stood out from the others for the great combination of price and quality. Their Head of Business Development, Kate Kuznietsova, did a brilliant job on the project's pre-launching stage. She listened carefully to our demands, precisely estimated the project and provided the visual solutions Wow-How could create for our project. She built a bridge of trust, so we stepped onto it together with the Wow-How team.

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

The process was a two-sided collaboration. In the first stage, our company provided the information about ourselves and shared goals we'd like to achieve. Meanwhile, the Wow-How Delivery Manager assigned to our project and the Creative Manager suggested the most profitable way to show our company's benefits with the visual development. We've chosen a 3D-animation style for our explainer video.

So, after our company approved the storyboard, the Wow-How team started working on the visual development. They created a stylish, dynamic explainer video for our company, with eye-catching animation and a reasonable plot, which favorably distinguishes itself from others.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

Wow-How team guided us through each project sprint. Project runs smoothly due to great work of our Delivery Manager Daria Kachan and Wow-How creative managers.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

A month after release, the views of this video have brought additional traffic to our website and attracted potential customers.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Delivery manager provided me with updates every three days. She was always ready to answer any question I had. Communicating with Wow-How team was a very pleasant experience.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The Wow-How team is a 100% client-oriented studio: They listen to their clients and suggest what suits them best to achieve their goals.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, their work process is absolutely great.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am one of the Directors of Qneuro, an educational game development company. We are a small studio with about 25 employees that develops educational games with an additional benefit of neurotechnology, which allows children to learn their content faster.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

Since we make educational games with the added benefits of neurotechnology, we wanted to make sure that all our users understood all the features available in our game. We wanted tutorial videos explaining all the features and all our in-house people were busy with responsibilities, so we outsourced this to Wow-How. 

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted tutorial videos explaining all the features so that we can make use of them in-game, on our website, and also in our social media channels. Doing this would certainly help all users understand the game and its features.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We'd met in person during the BETT 2019 conference in London and shared details about our companies. Once back from the conference, they shared their company profile and contacted us to check what services we required. Since we'd already conversed with them during the conference, we decided to give them our requirements.

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

We had informed them about our game, which they had downloaded and played. We shared with them how the game should be explained and gave the text that needed to be displayed and at what intervals we wanted. They went through the information and gave suggestions for designs. Then, they recorded the videos and sent them to us for verification. After all clarifications, they sent us the final files. 

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

They had assigned a project manager for our project who was in constant communication with us about any queries we had or they had. During the project manager's absence, another person was assigned to handle the project. The project was followed up well, and after sending a few videos back and forth we were able to finalize the content and complete the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have yet to begin adding the videos to our game and our social media platforms. At the moment, this question cannot be answered.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The project manager was very courteous, and considering that we are a game development company, we had some bugs on our end that took a while to rectify. Throughout the process, they were patient for us to finish our plan and did re-record a few sessions for us on our request. My team was able to understand all the communication from them clearly and without any issues.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They were always on point about their requirements and details and were quick to understand our wants and needs. We are happy with their excellent services and for delivering the videos as requested.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Nothing that can be said at this moment.

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the Director of Demand Generation at Keyhole.co and we're a Social Media Analytics company, we provide Hashtag analytics and Media Monitoring for startups to Fortune500 companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

We hired Wow-How for a set of illustration for the cover of our new website during a rebranding. We hired them again right away for another set of web design illustration because we were happy with their first work.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to have the design we needed for our rebranded new website, something that visually was attractive, fun and was aligned with our new identity.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We selected around 20 people based on their portfolio after a job we posted on Upwork. We have most of them do a quick draft / illustration test. After this, we reviewed each one. We also looked at the process of how people handled communication, deliverables, and timeline. Although Wow-How was the last participant in the competition, they came up with a plan to show multiple draft but they needed more time than I had. I accepted because I was suprised by their determination to come up with something good enough to present. The work they presented both have the skills I wanted and also the ideas to create our new identity. This is how I hired them.

Describe the project in detail.

Illustration/drawings for the cover of all our website pages + illustration for every feature we have in our tool. Wow-How came up with the art direction as well as the production.

What was the team composition?

There were a Sales to close the deal (Victor), then the Project Manager (Daria), then the production team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The project is not launched yet but I'm sure that the team at Wow-How demonstrated the skills to translate our new identity with amazing illustrations.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Honestly, it was a real pleasure to work with the team and especially with Daria. We even had a video call to clarify the project which was of great help. Their processes are smooth, the communication is regular and of high quality. We shared progress through a Google Sheet which is really great to communicate too. And we used Drive to exchange the files.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Both the processes and the results. I'm impressed with how they handled this project. They followed our guidelines and adapted it to match our new identity. I'd definitely recommend working with them and would hire them again for other projects.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Honestly, I'm pretty blunt when it comes to feedback but I don't see anything that could have be done differently to smooth things. So 100% happy.

Feedback summary: 

Wow-How Studio communicated well and fostered a positive and professional relationship. Their workflow was efficient and easy to follow, and the team is incredibly versatile and talented. Their work received positive feedback and exceeded expectations.

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 the owner of Cabin 3 Media, a video production company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

One of our clients requested animated videos, which we’d never done before. They found a partner they liked, but they ended up not working out, so we needed a new partner to create the animations.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The previous partner had created all the storyboards for the animations, so Wow-How Studio built on those to create the animated videos. The former partner had already made four videos, so Wow-How Studio had to match the original style to keep the products consistent. In total, Wow-How Studio created 12 animations.

What is the team composition?

I had one main point of contact, but there was a larger team.

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

We found four animators on Upwork, and our end client liked the style of one, so we hired that partner. However, they weren’t able to complete the project, so we engaged with Wow-How Studio to finish the work.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $24,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The partnership lasted from February–May 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Wow-How Studio copied the style of our previous illustrator so well that our end client didn’t even realize we’d switched animators. In fact, they actually liked Wow-How Studio’s work more than the first partner. The end client gave positive feedback on the animations, saying they were higher quality and better than what they’d expected.

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

Communication was excellent, and they always maintained a positive and professional relationship. In the rare instances we had issues or miscommunications, they went above and beyond to solve the problem without charging us more. We mainly communicated via email and WhatsApp. Even with the time difference and language barrier, the partnership went smoothly.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Unlike many other animation firms, Wow-How Studio is versatile and able to provide a wide range of services. They had resources, knowledge, and a process that made the relationship incredibly efficient.  Every step was clear and easy to follow, unlike the previous partner. Their system was user-friendly and allowed us to deliver early, even though we had a tight deadline. They were handed a difficult project and saved it, making the end client extremely pleased.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could’ve double checked our feedback to make sure all of our concerns were addressed in the first round. They sometimes had to revisit our notes to resolve all our problems.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Be as clear and direct as possible in your communication. They’re creative and have some great ideas, so collaborate closely with them and let them get involved.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We produce video content for technology companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

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

We needed to produce tons of 2D animated content for our client—specifically, 10 mini stories and one very long overview. The client had a respectable budget, but not something large enough to work inside the US. We needed Wow-How Studio to handle all of the 2D design and animation.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed studio-quality animation within the client's budget. We also needed someone who could communicate easily, despite being based outside the US.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I had seen Wow-How Studio on Upwork before, but had been afraid to work with an overseas animator. It finally became necessary to take a chance during this project.

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

We brought in Wow-How Studio during the early drafts of the script, so they could ensure our ideas were executable within the budget. Then came the asset design, where we locked the visual language, colors, characters, and more. Afterwards, they created rough storyboards, then color illustrations, and finally animation.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

Wow-How Studio had a finely crafted revisions/feedback process. Every phase (e.g., storyboards, illustration, animation) had an opportunity for feedback through convenient web-based platforms. More importantly, Wow-How Studio was easy to chat with via Skype during every stage, so I was never in the dark.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The client is thrilled with the final content, and so am I. It will be the cornerstone of their website and their sales pitch moving forward.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was seamless. I was very impressed by Wow-How Studio's ability to consolidate/execute our notes, seek clarification, and generally take the initiative in getting stuff done.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They offer such high-quality work and project management at a reasonable price.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None. Honestly, there are none.

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.
