We love Irish clients, a bit biased that way (as we are from the fair green isle ourselves- well half the team anyway) So when the guys from Squad plus approached us we rolled out the red online carpet and were more that delighted to be working on this project. The team were very decisive and after just 2 phone calls and a bit of negotiating the project got underway.
Look and Feel
Our designer made one frame with the main characters to show the prodominant colours we would use for the video and an example of fonts. This is what he came up with, a little bit different to what we are used to as we have a new animator on our team – we think he did a rocking job! And our client seems to think so too – “Exactly what I was hoping for – very professional but not boring. I think the graphics on this are excellent … compliments to the designer ”
A few tweaks to the typography and footballers jersey colours and we were ready to boogie on to the next stage.
Voiceover and music Design
We sent the team at squadplus a number of voices for them to have a listen to, they decided on Steve Reed as he fit best with there brand. They felt the deeper voices were probably too “serious” sounding for their needs, so settled on Steve’s up-beat, enthusiastic tone. We source all our voice talent from Piehole.co.uk. Not just because we like their name and we’re into nepotism, but because it’s a quality controlled voice over directory, it’s from the top drawer.
All of our voice castings are done by Marjorie who is our expert casting director – should you need help on casting drop her an email
After animation and a few sets of iterations, We put the final touches on the video, wrapped it up in a pretty bow and sent it out to the world – TAAAAA DAAAA this is what we ended up with.
We have to commend our new Producer Aurelie who is the latest addition to the team on her first successful production, Congratulations!! It turned out fantastic with her creative direction and style, and everyone involved was super happy, so happy in fact that the client went ahead with a second project with team Piehole. =) All round happiness!!
