Our animation graduates at Bucks have just completed their latest freelance commercial project: Chargesync. Chargesync is a tech company that makes electricity storage devices that people can put in their homes, saving money on their electricity bills and helping to reduce their carbon footprint as well. The purpose of the film is to help electricity consumers understand exactly what it is that Chargesync do. Animation is a wonderful tool for taking complex ideas and getting them across in a simple, clear way. And this film was a great way for our students to get paid experience of working on a live freelance job - for a great company with a great message.
What's this all about?
Who did the animation?
Animators from Bucks New University worked alongside animation students at Animation Apprentice. The project was directed by Bucks Animation gradaute Monika Dzikowicz.
Why do this kind of work?
Here at Bucks we think it's important to help our students find paid work, developing their skills and improving their demo reels. Animating on projects like this is great training for a students' future professional life, much of which will be spent on client-facing projects.
In the commercial world there is seldom enough time to finish the job as you would like to see it done. But, somehow or how other, you just have to do it anyway.
Congratulations to everyone who worked on Chargesync for doing such a stellar job.
