Animated Christmas Film – Nix Communications

Animated films and branded content are something we are now being commissioned to make on a regular basis, and we were pleased to be asked by our client Nix Communications to work with them to create this heart warming, festive animated video.

The marketing team at Nix provided us with the outline of the story and we worked in consultation with them to initially develop, and then flesh out idea and storyboards. It was important to keep the content and visuals engaging, whilst still demonstrating the dependable and innovative nature of Nix Communications. We then set about creating the characters and backdrops, bringing the story to life.

We used the set and props in the animation to reinforce Nix’s brand and product base, highlighting key partner ‘Unify’ where appropriate. This was done by using the actual phones and software that Nix provide, and through paying close attention to the online systems they install and the benefits Nix Communications bring to businesses.

Because it was decided to tell the story with no dialogue, the music was an integral part of the narrative. We worked with one of our regular composers to create a bespoke soundtrack.

The animation was rolled out on a number of social media channels and garnered lots of publicity and fantastic feedback for the client, helping them stand out from their competition.
