Europe’s leading inspection company, Dekra’s innovation division in Germany contacted us with a desire for a new, innovative, forward-looking internal education system. Together with our developers, we created a VR helmet system, which can also run on desktops and cellphones. The project included a series of 2D educational videos, too.
While making educational videos on electric car repair, we had to meet the strictest standards in terms of content. The videos were intended for worldwide use, hence we opted for stop motion technique to avoid showing people from specific ethnic groups. After direct consultations with the German parent company, we managed to settle on the final script, which was then executed through bringing the storyboard to life. The first shooting took place in a big studio that could comfortably accommodate a whole car. Basically, we took commercial quality photos of the car which were then animated by stop motion technique. The second time, we shot the inside scenes at an authorized dealership. The stop motion technique was complemented with animations, aiding comprehension with multiple graphic elements. The end product was an easily understandable video series with simple and clear design.
