SimplyBiz Group - Universe

The SimplyBiz Group wanted to create a stellar visual representation of the many businesses within the group. What better way than a trip through space with the group at the centre of the universe.

We used a mixture of 3D elements and design to animate a sequence where each company within the group is represented by a planet within a solar system with the SimplyBiz group at the heart. Our animation team took on the brief to make something that would work as a visual analogy to explain the group structure as well as be eye-catching enough to use at events and shows.

The main animation was shown at the group Partnership Event as an opening sequence and now currently plays on loop within the offices. A skilful use of Element 3D within After Effects mean that we could build and render the project as a series of interchangeable scenes for multiple uses.

We love the moving image. In fact, we have a passion for it. Big or small screen and wherever your viewers watch, it is an irresistible opportunity to fill a space with colourful pictures and words, to make a statement and say something.

We have the knowledge and expertise to produce film, video, motion graphics and animation for all mediums: broadcast or non-broadcast television, events or commercial film. Whether it is internal or external communication, we can help you say what you need to say in a memorable way.

There is no point in making a program that nobody wants to watch. We want to make things interesting. Very interesting. We are Thunder and Lightning. The electrifying film company.
