Ecommerce product videos

Showcasing brand videos on any platform is a great way to build brand awareness and increase engagement. Product videos are particularly beneficial to consumers when researching and comparing products.

A recent project has seen our video production team support the launch of HiSense’s higher priced TVs into a competitive market. We produced a series of video shorts that offer clear and a comprehensives explanation of the product in an aspirational and relatable environment.

Our team led the art direction for the project, creating detailed concept proposals to make sure the key demographic and target audience was addressed. The skilled CGI Animation team translated the concept, producing photorealistic CG animations that were edited in house.

This eye-catching content is now part of HiSense’s collective marketing campaign, featuring on YouTube and major retail websites.

Business As Usual

New year, new lockdown but it's #businessasusual for Set Visions. As a technology-based company, our CGI production team is working remotely allowing us to keep delivering our CG, animation and AR projects.

Some of our supportive staff are also manning the studio, with our doors open for quick photography turn around jobs from packaging to 360 cutouts. This flexible service can sustain the change in the market, with the nation side-stepping the highstreet in favour of online shopping.

Commissioned TV Set Design

Being able to create realistic and relatable spaces is key to a successful set design. One of our most recent projects can be seen in Wickes’ latest instalment of their ‘Cure Housebarrassment’ advertising campaign.

As we already produce the visual content for their kitchen brochures, we were able to deliver consistency across print, web and TV, aiding their omnichannel marketing campaign.

Set design is just one of the creative services our agency offers. With an inhouse team of Art Directors, Stylist and Creative Producers we create eye catching marketing content.

We also offer a TV ad service capable of producing 4k animations and have the ability to provide location filming with a production team to take care of the Clearcast process.

How To Videos

Our ‘how to’ videos are a tool to inform and educate professional trades people. Engaging and informative instructions build brand trust and fitters more likely to recommend their product to the homeowner. As our client, Wickes sell direct to public it is important their product can easily be installed by professional fitters.

Here our team produced a fitting video to support the launch of a new product for the national kitchen retailer. The stripped back animation style allows the fitter to focus on the task in hand with cut aways and captions to break down the concept.

We worked closely with our client’s product design team to ensure each step is technically correct and true to life. The animation is designed to be paused at any time which allows each step to be reviewed.

The instructional video was created to sit alongside the launch of Wickes new handless concept range. Set Visions was integral in setting the art direction apart from their usual brand imagery; creating photorealistic renders of aspirational room set which reflects the sleek design concept that has a higher price point.

This content then created a base for the supporting brand focused video that was produced for social. To discuss your own multichannel approach, contact the studio to arrange a more in-depth conversation about your marketing campaign.

Here’s our top tips for clear and affective how-to videos

Roku, the global streaming platform, is launching America’s top selling TV to the UK in conjunction with our CGI client, Hisense, who are the 4th largest TV company in the world. By expanding their presence in Europe and launching in the UK Hisense needs high quality promotional material that’s adaptable to any platform.
