Film: 'Ultrasonic Obstacle Detection'

Our aim was to create a dramatised story that would best explain the features and benefits of the firm's ultrasonic and radar products.

Brigade is a previous client so we were thrilled to be asked to extend the range of videos that we had made with them previously, this time focusing on their amazing ultrasonic and radar products.

27 videos were animated in 9 languages for their global markets and are being used to extend their eye-catching displays at trade shows and conferences


Consistency was key with this project, keeping in mind previous animation work we had produced, whilst balancing considerable increases in the complexity of the proposition. This included complex software and conditionality’s that needed to be explained at summary level without confounding viewers.

Creating and developing a brief and dramatised story that would best explain the features and benefits of these ultrasonic and radar products. This would involve storyboarding, dramatisation and a careful approach to stating risks, such that the company could provide a reassuring yet realistic tone.


We spent several weeks on storyboarding using spreadsheets, features lists and benefits lists, weaving them into a clear grid of messages. Wire frame animations were then constructed using our top animator in Vladivostok.

Realistic yet simplified and internationalised environments for the vehicles to be dramatised within had to be created and then after revisions of the wireframes, we produced 3 master videos from which all the differing language versions would be derived.

Finally, we rendered out using semi-automated language conversion 27 videos – 3 in each language.

The client was delighted with the videos and used them straight away in sales conferences, team conferences, sales pitches and deployed them onto their 9 international websites.

Feedback has been extremely positive and sales teams are genuinely elated to have high quality explainer videos which reveal the benefits to buyers.Here are a few of our own learnings from the making of suite of explainer videos. Hopefully they can help you prepare for your next production.

"It’s easy to find someone who can use a video camera. We struggled to find the skills to get beautiful shots which looked professional not gimmicky and the help to efficiently tell our story – and affordably. But then we found Marketing Films. We loved working with Tim – and got a great video which tells our story quickly, efficiently – and beautifully."

Tom Ball, CEO, Desklodge

"I would highly recommend Marketing Films. We’ve been working together on video project for NVM Private Equity and they've succeeded in bringing our company to life. Financial services is perceived as a very dull subject, but they have injected creativity, stylishness and successfully shown the real world of business investment. They've shown that it’s not just about the numbers, but the people working hard to make it all work. They're passionate about what they do and extremely enthusiastic. They have this amazing talent at transforming the most wooden interviewee into a natural."
