3D animated trailer for the Crescendo

Project Overview: Animated 3D trailer-come-explainer to run through and introduce the features of the MysteryVibe Crescendo

Client: MysteryVibe


About the project

The team at MysteryVibe commissioned me to produce a short animation for their flagship product: Crescendo.

The main goal was to introduce the key features of the Crescendo, something which could be shown to prospective customers, or current owners alike.

After proposing a couple of options, we settled on a 3D animation that made use of a highly atmospheric and somewhat seductive style throughout. Additional 2D annotations were added throughout the animation to highlight key features and points customers would need to know.

Using a combination of After Effects and Cinema 4D lite, I was able to recreate the Crescendo in 3D, animate it, and bring it seamlessly into After Effects to add in the annotations.

In addition to the 3D run through, there was another video produced to showcase the separate iPhone app functionality.

Interested in creating an animation?

With more and more people watching videos online, animation and motion design are a great way to get noticed and spread your ideas to the world.

Rewilding the planet with freelance animation and motion design

We've only got one planet, and right now it needs all the help it can get. Climate change and biodiversity loss are massive challenges that we need to tackle head on.

That's why, for every freelance animation project over £1000 a donation of 1% of the total budget will be made to the World Land Trust, on your behalf.

The money will go towards WLT's "buy an acre" programme; buying up and protecting vital habitats around the world, and helping fight against climate change.

Any motion design projects under £1000 will have a tree planted on your behalf.

Acres saved so far:

Thanks to my wonderful clients and the animations we've produced, enough money has been donated to save around:

17.5 Acres of vital habitats around the world.

Just think, your animated explainer video or logo animation could also be helping fight the climate crisis!
