PFA help visualise a division of Best Buy Europe

Pleasefindattached have been huddled away for the past couple of weeks watching the snow fall outside whilst the full team have been problem solving, visualising, sound recording, animating and editing our socks off. The brief this time was for Best Buy Europe and included visualising and animating the divisions business model into a 10 minute short. A voice over delivered a narrative whilst the animation flew through many scenarios helping to explain the history, future and vision of BBE. We were really pleased with the results and the animation was used to open a conference last week with tremendous success. A lot of hard work in such a short space of time, but the result is a strong piece of corporate motion graphics work.

Above is a still from the animation as unfortunately we cannot show the whole thing.

CPW – Animated Annual Review

To mark the year that Carphone Warehouse reached the FTSE 100, the IT comms team wanted something memorable to remind staff of the events of 2007. We decided to produce an animated film, encompassing video clips, photos and sound bites, creating a fly through of their 12 month journey. After a successful big screen showing at their Wembley event, the film has been distributed internationally.
Included: art direction, design, illustration, broadcast animation.
