YOUR VIDEO IS YOUR BRAND

Low-quality animation will ruin your image. When it comes to online video you have only seconds to prove that you are worth watching. Can potential customers understand why they need your product or service?
A lack of clarity may already be costing you a great deal.

THE ART OF BATTLING GIANTS

Most brands lack the time and expertise to make an animated video that gets results.
Attack Studios creates engaging animations so you can stand out from the crowd
and turn more leads into customers.

Attack Studios is an animation studio that specializes in exciting After Effects animation and motion graphics design for broadcast, film, and digital. We have an experienced team of motion graphics designers, illustrators, and video editors.  We are business savvy and love to collaborate with ambitious underdogs and challenger brands who seek creativity and innovation. We’ll turn your inspiration into a beautifully animated video that has a lasting impact. 

Don’t let our name scare you, it’s an extension of our work ethic and design philosophy. The definition we use is “a determined attempt to tackle a problem or task.” We don’t rest until we’ve created meaningful solutions for our clients and their audience.
Our focus is on helping challenger brands, underdogs and disrupters realize their vision with fire and spirit. We don't just build brands, we build excitement for brands. As a motion design studio, it expresses the impact and energy of our animations.

Thus, we attack the work.

You are the kind of brand that
wants to be a market leader.

In order for that to happen, you need awareness, leads, conversions, and a strong base of customer evangelists. A targeted animated video campaign can address each of those issues. The problem is that animating a video, let alone organizing a campaign, can be a difficult and time-consuming task that requires specialized skills and expertise. Then you have to figure out how to get in in front of the right audience. Not having that skill set, a high-quality video, or knowing where your ideal audience is can make you feel like your brand is stuck in the minor leagues.

Never fear, we are here to help. We’re your translators when it comes to advertising, marketing, design, and video. We will make sense of it all. We believe in the power of animated video backed with smart marketing, solid SEO, and a well-defined demographic. We understand that you know your industry and market the best, the same way we're experts in motion graphics design, and storytelling. That's why we use a highly collaborative approach that includes discovery and strategy. Because a one-size-fits-all approach just doesn’t work, and a video needs to have your voice for it to be authentic and trustworthy.

Here's how it works: Send us a quick email with some project details to book a call. On the call, we'll get to know you and help define where you want to go. We'll do some research, evaluate your position, identify opportunities and create a specific plan to accomplish your goals. Then we'll make a custom animated video that is completely suited to your brand and clientele. Afterward, we'll implement the marketing and distribution strategy we made together, taking out all the guesswork, so you can succeed stress-free.

 

So book a call today, so you can stop spinning your wheels in the minor leagues and start becoming a major market leader.

VIDEO MARKETING STRATEGY

We run collaborative strategy sessions led by a facilitator to gain a deep understanding of your brand. This approach accelerates the creative process in general and builds consensus throughout the entire engagement.


ANIMATION PRODUCTION

Our approach is excellent visuals & story, with goals (like conversion and sales) in mind, combined with smart marketing & SEO. We work with you to create the right kind of content that engages the viewer and creates a connection.

ANIMATION PRODUCTION

MARKETING & DISTRIBUTION

Your ad buys and channels need to be selectively targeted to maximize ROI. We find out where your audience is, then put you in front of them. During pre-production, we implement a unique process that will give you a significant SEO boost.

WORK

PROCESS

DISCOVERY

Discovery is our map to get us to the end result and learn how we will measure our success. We'll discuss the tone of the video, audience, deliverables, and any guidelines for the project to make sure your video is on-brand. The outcome of this diagnostic phase is two parts: findings and recommendations.

STORY

We'll decide on the proper story device to uphold the tone while meeting the goals of the brief. Then we write and write until we get it all down. This where we take complex ideas and explain them in a way that’s easy to understand. Find the core message and connect emotionally.

PRE-PRODUCTION

After the story is approved by you and your team, we assemble the framework. We create style frames that dial in the look of the project, source music, audition actors for voice-overs and get everything ready to go for production.

DESIGN

Once the style is approved we create custom assets that are ready-to-animate. Then we flesh-out the project into a full storyboard, pairing imagery with each scripted scene. This allows us to identify any gaps in the story and refine them.

PRODUCTION

With the style and storyboard signed-off, we record the voice talent and begin the animation. We take your custom assets and illustrations and bring them to life, based on the storyboards and timing of the voice over.

FINISH

Whether it ends as a broadcast spot on TV, on the web, or used internally, we’ll make sure it’s delivered with a proper color grade, voice-over, music, and sound design. We understand the importance of compression, encoding, marketing, and good SEO.
