Animation

If you can imagine it, we can make it happen. Just like radio, but way more visual!

First Fuel Commercial
Client: Efficiency Nova Scotia

Katie at Efficiency Nova Scotia was putting together the Annual Report. And she was finding very encouraging things. Energy efficiency was actually competing with Nova Scotia’s other fuel sources. Efficiency, in effect, was becoming a fuel source. And now we need to bang the drum: let’s not only consider efficiency a fuel, let’s make it our primary fuel!

What is Energy Efficiency?
Client: Efficiency Nova Scotia

Energy efficiency is a tough concept to make tangible. How do you quantify the value of something you don’t use? To support its annual report, we created a short animation - inspired by the lyrical, poetic style of Giant Ant Media’s “Educate the Heart” - to help Nova Scotians appreciate the benefits derived from the commitment to being more energy efficient.

Safe Shipping
Client: LNG Canada

What does it take to safely navigate a 350 metre long vessel through the Douglas Channel on Canada’s west coast? What are the potential impacts that need to be mitigated? Just some of the questions Mark Turner and the LNG Canada team had to answer when planning the best route to take carriers to and from the proposed export terminal in Kitimat, B.C.

Bright Business Awards: Rochelle Owen
Client: Efficiency Nova Scotia

Efficiency Nova Scotia celebrates innovators and leaders in energy efficiency at the Bright Business Awards. This year’s Leadership Award went to Rochelle Owen. A 25-year sustainability black-belt, Rochelle has formed the Dalhousie Energy Committee, enlisted volunteers, students and thesis-writers, and transformed the landscape of two campuses, for the greener!

Compliance
Client: Canada Revenue Agency

The joy of animation is that you can create visual environments to bring even the driest subject to life. Ensuring compliance in tax filing is not likely to feature in a top 10 of “most glamorous jobs”, but presenting the search for wrongdoing as a detective story created intrigue and curiosity. Just another example of the CRA making innovation a part of their culture.

Newcomers
Client: Canada Mortgage Housing Corporation

There are many challenges that come with being a newcomer to Canada, and a central one is finding a great place to live. There are so many factors to consider for comfort, safety and accessibility. The Canadian Mortgage and Housing Association wants to take the “scary” out of finding the perfect spot for any new Canadian.

Co-Generation Animation
Client: Efficiency Nova Scotia

Errol and Charles can help your business save energy and save money. The sources of those savings might surprise you. For many business owners, they just need someone to point to where they should look — and that’s where Efficiency Nova Scotia steps in. They wanted businesses to know that no operations are “too unique” to create significant energy savings.

Volunteer Journey
Client: CUSO International

We worked with Sean Kelly at Cuso International for a couple of years, creating powerful stories of community projects that have a direct benefit on the lives of people in less privileged communities. For this project, the stakes were raised – to create a scripted animation that would act as a new PSA and help educate potential volunteers about how to get involved.
