After producing a world-class video for the Apple Design Award-winning startup Shapr3D, they had the perfect tool for promoting the app's transformation into a multi-device solution, giving their groundbreaking software even more recognition.

Problem

Shapr3D had exciting plans for the multidevice announcement, scheduled to take place at a Keynote event. The video would play a vital role, being streamed live during the event and prominently featured on their website above the fold.

With an already stellar reputation and a robust community on social media, the Shapr3D exceptional brand experience set the stage. The aim was clear: craft visual content that tantalizes existing and new customers, strengthening their loyalty. Video, being the most captivating medium, proved the perfect fit for this objective.

Challenge

Enabling the app's adaptability across mobile, tablet, and various multimedia devices marked a monumental milestone for Shapr3D. We were determined to mirror the immense innovation in the video's essence. Our primary goal was to swiftly discover avenues to amplify this vision and transform it into an unforgettable visual masterpiece.

The greatest challenge of the narrative was to showcase the most significant advantage of Shapr3D’s multimedia evolution: the ability to effortlessly transition your design from one device to another, ensuring a seamless journey towards a production-ready model right where you left off.

Solution

We set out to craft an outstanding video that would leave a lasting impact and stand the test of time. We implemented the already established Shapr3D visual brand guidelines and ignited the narrative with creative visuals and dynamic videography.

Shapr3D's flexibility allowed us to explore a diverse range of creative solutions and assemble an expansive video production crew, generating a captivating final product.
