Vonage: Communication is Everything

This set of videos for Vonage had an all encompassing theme which was “Communication is Everything”. We’ll be honest – we weren’t totally sure how to capture the “everything” part of the creative brief right away. The script had separate stories that needed to be animated, but also a live action component as well.

Fortunately, the well-crafted stories were ready and waiting for equally interesting visuals and we were able to weave the live action footage throughout in an integrated way. We’re super proud of the result, but it was the collaboration with the agency, client and creative team that made it truly special!
