Great Recruitment - Be Great

An animated explainer video can be a beautiful thing. Especially when you get to play with a little character animation and use your imagination. This video is aimed at newly qualified teachers to tell them about a recruitment company just for them.

This is a really good example of how we can work with a marketing agency to create a visual approach from pre-existing design assets. Perfect Circle described the kind of animation style they wanted for Great Recruitment’s video and we made a few recommendations on how the characters would move and react in each scene. We then worked alongside the agency’s designers who created the illustrated elements for each scene based on the script we devised.

Once we had the assets, our animators could weave their magic and bring each scene to life. Sometimes an animated explainer video is the best way to visually describe a service – you can really
go to town on diagrams or visual analogies of what it is on offer. We like to treat animation exactly the same as filmed material – thinking up scenes and narratives and putting it all together to create something people want to watch. The only difference is our animation team makes the character leap about rather than getting someone to do it in front of a camera.
