AARONS CGI can take your raw footage and edit it with special visual effects to help sell your product or service, or let us create something from scratch to meet your vision, at any resolution and format for only a modest budget. Check out our previous TVCs and online advertising and promotions to see how we can help you promote your business to your audience:


ONLINE PROMOTION Honda Jazz interactive campaign

AARONS CGI produced a series of 3D animations for an interactive online ad campaign with ad agency DRAFTFCB introducing all the main characters from the agency produced ‘Honda Jazz comes to town’ TVC campaign. The 3d animations involved talking cars for a behind-the-scenes Honda Jazz ‘carsting’ reel, as well as animated character loops for various interactive web pages promoting the new car. 

The goal was to make sure that the online animations and graphics matched the complexity of the original TVC campaign which had a mammoth CG production value. In the end the client was thrilled with the result and AARONS CGI was proud to be part of this challenging project.

After the success of the campaign AARONS CGI also produced a special 3D animated promotional video animation introducing the advertising agency’s self-promotional showreel featuring the sassy Jazz character herself.

Producing an animated TV commercial can be complex, especially when adding visual effects similar to those seen in big budget movies. The visual effects required in this TVC for Moosehead hair cream was no exception. AARONS CGI was tasked with ‘motion tracking’ the actor’s head movements, then adding computer modelled antlers that appear to stick to the actor’s heads which then animate and grow. The result is totally seamless and believable.

The TVC was shown on MTV and various Australian commercial TV networks.
