NATS wanted a film that would elevate external perceptions beyond simply being at the ‘head of the field’, and be seen a pioneering company leading the way into the future of the industry. Our solution was to create a futuristic, 3D CGI world which brings NATS’ vision to life. Within this visually-stunning environment, our presenter guides the audience through the company’s ambitions, all the while interacting with the world around her. The spectacular visuals are underpinned by an ethereal music score, reinforcing the futuristic, innovative feel of the film.
Pinn wanted a film to launch themselves into the market, to explain both to business and consumer customers, what their offering is. To this end we produced a voiceover-led piece of animation that is both stylish and original which clearly and simply describes what Pinn does, how their product works and the benefits it has to society as a whole.
Drawing on beautiful imagery shot in Hong Kong, Seoul, London, KSA, and Coventry, we combined an ethereal bespoke music track film with state-of-the-art graphics to create a final piece which reinforces Aramco’s position as the world’s leading petrochemical company in an understated, emotional, and engaging fashion.
The primary purpose of each year’s event is to promote good relations between Saudi Aramco and the host nation (as well as other Asian countries) and show appreciation of the special relationships they have. 2016’s event took place in Tokyo, and our film needed to focus on the event’s theme of ‘Strength in Agility’ and incorporated the event’s logo – a tiger amongst bamboo.
Our key creative idea was a highly original CGI Origami treatment. Paper is regarded as delicate, but the irony is that it is flexible enough to be folded into a myriad of shapes to convey the qualities connected to strength in agility – and how Saudi Aramco makes the world more mobile, productive, meaningful.
The treatment is a subtle, elegant nod to Japanese culture, and allowed us to graphically treat live-action footage using high-end CGI techniques to creatively amplify ‘the origami effect’ in a number of diverse and visually memorable ways. Through real origami artistry and CGI techniques, we created a stunning visual world in which reality meets fantasy and showcasing the core theme: Strength in Agility.

They needed a film to make the concept more accessible and engaging for a wide range of audiences.
Our solution was a based around a device called a Phonotrope, where the illusion of animation is achieved by rotating an object and filming it at a high shutter speed. The end result was both beautiful and mesmerising – like nothing else we’ve produced before…
