HOW WE TACKLE CHALLENGES
Allianz Partners wanted to address insurance companies and Neobanks looking to improve their range of insurance and assistance services. The insurance sector is not the sexiest, so it was a challenge to deliver their message in an engaging way.
Through this video, we helped Allianz Partners develop its attractiveness on a B2B services catalogue by making the subject likeable. We aimed to immerse the target audience from the first few seconds into the fantastic journey of the character, Mr Stuff Happens, who is undoubtedly not alone in needing insurance on a daily basis... We follow the inconveniences experienced by Mr Stuff Happens and using humour, we showcase how Allianz Assistance services can support clients, and why other organisations would benefit from using their services.
In 2019, the European Commission launches the hashtag #RaiseYourPencil. Through this hashtag, the continental organization aims to raise awareness among the European population about the lack of access to education that many children around the world suffer from. The explanatory video was to be created in less than a month.
Education is a universal right and the European Commission devotes a significant part of its budget to it. Through this video with its original graphic style, the European Commission has found a simple and effective way to convey its emotional message. The use of this sketched design not only appeals to the central theme of the video, children, but also directly correlates to the tagline of the campaign, #RaiseYourPencil.
Audi wanted to introduce a new service that automates the scheduling of service appointments.

The new platform is presented in an appealing manner and encourages clients to utilise the application, highlighting Audi’s excellent customer service.
Retail / Sports

The colourful environment and lush landscapes allow the audience to embark on a wonderful adventure.
Retail / Luxury
Yves Saint Laurent, a French luxury brand of international renown, wanted to create a promotional video for the launch of their new line of cosmetics.
In order to provide a quality video that would correspond to their needs, we worked in 360° project management including format-selection, location scouting, administrative work and casting.
Live action enabled the brand image and values to be conveyed effectively; luxury and elegance were emphasised by the different elements of the video. Also, the brand could be promoted in a subtle yet eye-catching manner as the perfect compliment to their ready-to-wear clothing line.
Culture of Insight
Culture of Insight wanted to present their service in a clear and concise manner to their clients. However, explaining complex professional activities can be difficult, such as those in the data sector.
In order to create a high-quality video everyone can understand, we decided to create a 2D video, using motion design to explain their services in a simple and eye-catching manner. The use of a 2D video also created dynamism and fluidity thanks to the tailor-made design and animations.
IT / SAAS
S4M helped HP set up an advertising campaign on mobile phones to promote the release of their new computer. Their objective for this video was to get a complete visual overview and report of the campaign’s results.
To do so, we mixed three different formats. First, stock footage of the target demographic using their phones was used to show the essence of the campaign. Then, 2D motion graphics were used to explain the campaign’s function with clearly reported statistics. Finally, we incorporated a filmed interview of the region’s Chief Marketing Officer, in which he describes the tools used to achieve those results.
The firm Cylad, specialising in consulting, wanted to present their company and an event that they organized.
To deliver a high-quality video that met their objectives, we took care of everything from beginning to end, allowing our clients to focus on ensuring that their event ran smoothly. We opted for live action as it was the best way in which to present Cylad’s event. This video format also enabled us to present the company in an eye-catching and dynamic way.

Efficacity wanted to present a new project that hundreds of research engineers worked on: TEX, or experimentation territories. They are innovative solutions to build and develop tomorrow’s cities.
We respected a clear graphic chart matching TEX’s values: the pastel green and blue remind viewers of their ecological and innovative ideals. After discussions with the company, we decided to opt for a design with thin, refined lines, using continuous movement with fewer cuts. This was to boost and emphasize the test’s objective, which was followed up with an expansion on what the project was about.

With over 120 employees and sales representatives in many countries, the company takes pride in delivering products that are always of outstanding quality.They reached out to us for help in explaining their new product, a Power Quality Controller. Having seen similar explainer videos online, they decided to contact us, especially as we are experienced in producing such technical videos for the industrial sector.
Their main goal for the video was to explain their product in an easily comprehensible way for potential customers. In early discussions, the necessity to simplify the complex product process became clear so as not to discourage viewers. A clearly understandable presentation heightens the probability of improved sales, which was another one of their objectives. We used a light and descriptive tone to inspire trust in FRAKO and their new product. We also kept the video no longer than necessary, staying under 120 seconds to ensure that the viewer’s attention will be kept. During our pre-production we discussed in detail the lengths for the individual setting walkthroughs while we still had a focus on keeping the details as simple as possible.
