Bespoke 3D Animation
3D animation is the creation of moving image in a three dimensional environment, 3D animation mimics realistic processes such as shadows and highlights, reflections, refractions, radiosity, texture etc. , making the resulting animation more realistic to the viewer. Dependant on the quality and accuracy the resulting animation can be photo-realistic or can even replicate real life shot on video or film.
Bloom Studio utilises 3D animation to create simulations of complex and impossible scenarios such as travelling through space, time or a solid surface, taking the viewer inside the human body, pulling apart complex machine or exploring the chemical or biological make-up of a substance.
Bespoke 2D Animation
2D animation is the creation of moving image in a two-dimensional environment, through both ‘traditional’ cel animation or in computerised animation software. This is done by sequencing consecutive images, or ‘frames’, that simulate motion by each image showing the next in a gradual progression of steps. The eye can be “fooled” into perceiving motion when these consecutive images are shown at a rates faster than the eye can perceive.
Bloom Studio utilises 2D animation in a number of customer projects from corporate videos and presentations through to training and education videos and is most commonly used in the low cost but powerful Animessage®.
Animated Visual Effects
Computer Animation can be used to create film visual effects, enhancing a video or film and changing the nature of the final production significantly. Visual effects are now commonly used in film and TV, they used to be very expensive but as technology and software has become more advanced and affordable; it is now entirely feasible for every company to utilise them in their own marketing and communications tools.
Bloom Studio frequently use specialist visual effects in client projects to produce unique and powerful videos which amaze, thrill and inspire customers.
Training & Information Videos
Animation is often used in training and development materials as it can simulate a variety of scenarios and situations which would be impractical or expensive to capture on film. By utilising animation as part of a training tool, such as a video or presentation, complex ideas and processes can be broken down into their constituent parts or stages; meaning that they can be explained or experienced in a more controlled and informative manner.
Bloom Studio works with clients to develop detailed and powerful animation which can be used to deliver specialist knowledge and training to employees, customers and partners.
