Animations

Our Work

We create high-quality, cinematic animations to bring your project to life.  We will help you translate complex technical ideas into communicable visuals.

Whether you need:

  • Explainer videos of your technology.
  • Company overview / promotional video.
  • Sales tools to help communicate the benefits of your product or service.
  • Videos for conference stands – standalone and eye-catching to engage potential customers.
  • Visualising data – we use our background in data processing to visualise raw data in intelligent ways.
  • Visualising product designs – we can open all common CAD formats, and make a product that doesn’t yet exist look real.  We also do camera tracking in-house, and can integrate digital elements into moving camera footage.

We typically work at HD or 4K, 25 fps and can supply voice-over, music, sound effects and subtitles as required.

We find that our work is particularly useful in visualising things that can’t be seen because they are either too small (genetics, quantum devices, cellular processes), too far away (space missions, exoplanets), or don’t exist yet (product designs, novel technology).  And we can communicate complex science in a manageable way, or interpret the key elements of your novel technology in a more conceptual way, for journal covers, brochures or lobby artwork.

Biology

Our Work

We have a particular passion for visualising synthetic biology and cellular machinery, bringing our unique cinematic style to highlight the wonders of genetics and cell biology.  It really does make the best images, and we find it fascinating.  We have worked on complex genetic scenes (transcription/translation, DNA replication, DNA computation), molecular complexes such as CRISPR-CAS9, haemoglobin, antibody/T-cell binding, and more macro scenes such as visualising neurons, water-borne parasites and tumours.

We typically ask sensible questions about your research, and translate this in to a visual scene that communicates the novel aspects of your work, or interpret it in a conceptual or artistic way for use on journal covers, for example.  We can either set scenes up as high resolution still renders, or rig them for animation.  There is some saving in doing both, as much of the work is similar.

Typically we work at 6000×4500 pixels for illustration, which will print at A1 at 180 dpi.  We can go higher resolution if desired.  Animations tend to be HD or 4K, 25 fps and we can supply voice-over, music, sound effects and subtitles as required.

Space Tech

Our Work

Equinox have ten years experience working on space graphics and animations, and have worked for Airbus D&S, ESA, UK Space Agency, NASA, SSTL, Surrey Space Centre, and others.

Because of our experience and knowledge from previous projects, we get details correct (i.e. understanding of orbits, operation of instruments, manoeuvring, etc.)  This saves valuable time and money, ensuring we complete projects on time and on budget.

We aim for a balance between absolute accuracy and and artistic cinematic quality, which we find is appreciated by engineers and the public alike.  We don’t make silly mistakes, and those times when we need to simplify science or engineering, it is to aid with clarity of communication.

We serve to educate and to engage, while staying true to the science. We are experienced in tackling large complex projects, and are comfortable talking to engineers about their technical work, asking informed questions based on our knowledge and experience. We always strive to improve the quality of our work and achieve a truly cinematic result.

Typically we need CAD files (under NDA) of your satellite design.  If this is incomplete, or if you are focusing on a specific instrument, we can fill in the gaps and construct the complete satellite.  We have visualised complex orbital manoeuvres (docking, capture, walking safety ellipse), and are quite adept at telling the story of a space mission step-by-step, which making it look photorealistic.

We generally work at 6000×4500 pixels for illustration, which will print at A1 at 180 dpi.  We can go higher resolution if desired.  Animations tend to be HD or 4K, 25 fps and we can supply voice-over, music, sound effects and subtitles as required.

Concept Work

Our Work

Many concepts are nigh impossible to convey verbally, or even in illustrated form. This is where the power of animation comes in: it’s possible to visualise mechanisms or abstract concepts, from molecular scale interactions to space exploration. Allow the audience to appreciate the complexity and skill involved in your project, by viewing it first-hand.

Several of our clients have used our visualisations for the bidding stage on a project – bringing a slick animation to the table really helps you stand out as being committed and professional, and we’re pleased to claim a 100% success rate on bids using our work.
