Nuclear Waste Services

Nuclear Waste Services have worked with us since 2015. We have created a huge range of animated content with them, developed their visual style from scratch and helped them increase their online engagement by over 300%.

What they wanted

What they wanted

Nuclear Waste Services (NWS), formerly known as Radio Active Waste Management, came to Infocandy needing a set of 20 short form animations each about 15 seconds in length. They needed them to be on brand, to loop, to work across all of their social profiles, and they needed them completed in six weeks.

We conceptualised, storyboarded, and illustrated the animations, whilst simultaneously developing their visual identity within three weeks, leaving us three weeks to turn it all into a set of films ready to be released to the public.

With that target hit, and the videos boosting their social engagement to figures they had never before experienced, it was the start of a beautiful relationship and we still continue to work with them to this day.

We have gone on to create animated web banners for PPC campaigns, deep-dive three minute animations around some of the more complicated topics they wanted to discuss, and shorter FAQ animations to help the general public put their mind at ease with the questions they were asking most.

How did we do it?

At the time we were approached, NWS didn’t have a concrete visual style across all of their communications. They had a selection of various infographics and images on their Twitter page and on their website but nothing consistent. The first thing we did was to create still images in a variety of different styles until we honed the perfect identity for them. Once we had this clear, creating the films became much more straight forward.

How we make all of NWS's animations

  • Initial Meeting

    We always start with a chat, either in person or online. We get to know exactly what they want to get out of their latest video. We’ll discuss audience, art style, length and where the film will be shown.
  • Script

    NWS will usually provide Infocandy with a loose script, or set of notes around the topic they want to explain in their film. Our copywriters will then work with their team to form this into a snappy, clear, animation friendly script ready for production.
  • Storyboard

    Armed with our signed-off script, we’ll create a frame-by-frame sketch of how we envisage the animation to flow. NWS will then take this storyboard to their stakeholder and experts to make sure it is exactly what they want, and make any amends as necessary.
  • Design

    Once the script and the storyboard has been signed off by the many industry experts, scientists and government officials, we will begin the design process. Here we create all the new backgrounds and characters in the style of their visual brand identity.
  • Animation

    With the script, storyboard and style frames all approved, we’ll then turn this into their latest film. We handle everything from sound, voice overs, animation and editing.
  • Final Delivery

    Once finished, we will provide versions with and without subtitles, and often in English and in Welsh. We make sure the sizing and formatting is perfect for all of the channels they want to use to distribute the animation.
