In a world dominated by mobile device consumption, the traditional realm of TV brand-building ads is gradually fading. In this digital era, where users engage with a company’s brands, products, or content through devices, the paradigm has shifted towards swift, attention-grabbing strategies.

With a mere 3 to 5 seconds to captivate an audience, the stakes are higher than ever. Static content has become monotonous, often slipping past the radar of users engrossed in their mobile devices. Businesses must craft dynamic and captivating content to stand out.

LIVE Communications, a trailblazer in the creative landscape, stands at the forefront of offering a dual expertise—2D and 3D Animation. LIVE specialises in the creation of captivating content using dynamic 2D or 3D animation, bringing brands and products to life.

Create intrigue and interest through captivating content

Whether through compelling storytelling, visually stunning graphics or emotionally resonant themes, such content establishes an immediate connection with viewers. By igniting curiosity and resonating on a deeper level, it creates a desire within the audience to delve further. Captivating content holds the attention of viewers and transforms casual onlookers into invested participants.

Decoding 2D & 3D animation

At the heart of 2D animation lies a classic elegance that transcends time. It’s a two-dimensional realm where characters and scenes come to life through the art of movement. Think of beloved characters from childhood cartoons or the charm of a hand-drawn character —2D animation captures the essence of simplicity yet harbours a profound impact. LIVE Com uses 2D animation to create captivating content that resonate with nostalgia, emotion, and a timeless appeal.

From product visualisations to intricate simulations, 3D animation opens doors to a world where realism meets creativity. LIVE Com utilises 3D animation to create captivating content that resonates with the targeted audience.
