Ever wondered why seemingly everyone everywhere just absolutely loves Pixar movies?
For the record, Ratatouille is my personal favorite.
But what is Pixar doing differently from the rest?

You know that your company has the best solutions to problems that we all face. You believe in your vision for the future.
But you can’t say the same about your customers. And it’s not their fault!
The age of information is a double-edged sword. Your customers are overwhelmed by the sheer amount of information they need to sift through just to make a single decision in their lives. This gets worse the more life-changing the decision proves to be.
There are thousands of brands that claim they are the ones to understand their customers' problems and pain points and thus have the exact solution for it. Your voice can easily get lost in the noise.
Not to mention how cynical your customers can get by the end of this!
This is why your brand needs to stand out and be memorable. If you can create a strong emotional connection, you can show your audience that you understand them and that they can trust you to change their lives for the better.
In today’s oversaturated market with so many brands promising the same things you do, it’s hard to stand out and remain memorable long enough to attract customers.
This is why you need something a little more than promises.
A 3D animation product video is your opportunity to help the viewer trust your brand by making them understand how your product or service can help make their lives better. Here is how you can truly harness the power of animated videos:
There are several key factors that go into creating a successful video. First, pick a singular art style and animation. Combining two mediums can seem like a good idea, but in the end, you might be left with a video that is hard to follow. Stick to the central idea of the video. Bring up various features of your product, but make sure they address the one pain point your video focuses on.
Instead of using simple text and hoping that the viewer has an accurate mental image, use animation to show exactly how your product can act as a solution. Your video is not constrained by the limitations of reality. The freedom to use metaphors and dynamic text animation as you see fit is unparalleled when you use animation.
Your animated characters or events can be exaggerated and imaginative or stay realistic. But remember to not get too melodramatic or too bland! The priority of the video is to educate.
Humans inherently connect to stories. Even a 90-second video can be memorable enough to leave a powerful impact on the viewer. You can communicate the exact tone and content of your message at the fraction of the price of making a live-action video. By ensuring the viewer that you are the one who understands their pain point the best, and thus have the exact solution for it, you not only manage to win trust but also excite the viewer for the future.
Being memorable is not the only important thing. You need to guide the viewer with the next few steps. Helping them connect with you easier, ensures they will be more willing to trust you over your competitors.
