One of our regular clients came to us with an existing animation, created by an American agency. They wanted to change an element of the video, to make it more specific to the product they were selling in the UK. Luckily, the animation had a very graphical, clean look, so we could unpick the elements, create a completely new sequence and tie it all together.
The tough bit turned out not to be the animation, but the audio. We had to keep the new sequence in time with the music, in terms of pace and so the audio still matched when we made the insert. Still, job done and client was very happy, no one noticed the join!
It seems that October is a big month for animation at Napoleon Creative. Last October we were asked to do two challenging animations for Capgemini and this year we were asked to do two more!
The new animations were good fun and each threw up their own challenges. With both being made specifically for separate events, there was not only very specific time pressure, but also the challenge of taking graphics and imagery chosen by the client and mixing it with interview footage to create a complete video that explains a topic and gives a clear ‘call to action’.
The first animation was to promote Architect Week 2010;
The second animation to promote Capgemini at EMC Momentum 2010 in Lisbon
On top of all of that we’ve had lots of nice graphics to play with creating titles and animations for several other projects so all in all October was a great month for animation and long may it continue!

Capgemini asked us to help them communicate their Rightshore offering and they wanted to use animation.
We spent a while getting the look right, then developed 3 sequences for them, each on a different aspect of Rightshore. We coached one of their staff to give the voice over, which was a nice touch to give the film a ‘we made this’ flavour. You can see the full clips in situ here or watch our short version below:

It took some time to get the look right, but hopefully we’ve come up with something stylish and cool looking…

We created a video for the I’m A Scientist project, which is like school science lessons meets the X Factor! Scientists and students talk online via the website. They both break down barriers, have fun and learn. The students get to vote for their favourite scientist, deciding which scientist gets a prize of £500 to communicate their work, learning about issues around funding as they do. And of course, being exposed to a wide range of real-life scientists!
The challenge was to create a clip which communicated to project to the three key teams within the project; the students, the teachers and the scientists. We suggested creating three different clips, each based on core footage, but giving each one a slightly different focus on the material.

Capgemini liked the video we produced for their Opex project, they asked us to create a magentic board, 1m square, to use after they’ve shown the video. We had a lot of fun making this!
And you can see the video on Capgemini’s page here.

We delivered this clip for our client last week. It was screened for our client, our client’s boss, his boss and their boss. That far up, surely that has to be Barrack himself? Anyway, after the screening, they burst into a round of applause! So our client is very happy indeed.
