Aussie Home Loans

Project Details

Client: Aussie Home Loans
Animation Type: 2D, 3D, motion graphics, character, animation

After creating a commercial animation for Aussie back in 2015, we worked with the team again on a refreshed take of the animation.

We wanted to not just rehash the old one and update the info but rather give it a new life. With many hand drawn elements and keyframe animation, the detail of this latest animation brings new life to Aussie’s service offering.

Setting the Scene

Having worked with the team at Aussie home loans before we settled into a groove very quickly as we discussed the potential for this new video. All the things it could be and how we could bring it to life.

They were as excited as we were by the potential and the ideas weren’t just coming from our side of the table.

They really wanted to put the viewer in the driver’s seat and take them through the journey of applying for a home loan. So we decided, why not actually put them in the driver’s seat and create a video that was told entirely from the point of view of the customer.

They loved it and so we were off.

Finding a tone

The first thing we needed to do was to find a design style that would feel comforting and homey. So many financial product videos are bright and colourful but it all feels a little too polished, a little too corporate. We wanted something that felt a little rough around the edges, something that spoke to the hands on experience that Aussie deliver.

So our animators put the keyboards and mice to the side for a couple of days and got back to their art school roots – pencils and paper. They sketched and erased and sketched again. Soon they found a look and a feel that allowed them to tell the story in a way that felt unique but also spoke to the audience Aussie were trying to connect with.

Completing the task

After a little bit of back and forth we were able to land on a look and a feel that their team and ours felt would work visually and functionally and the animation began. We employed several elements of 3D and 2.5D to assist with the transitions and to help the video come alive.

The final result is an eye catching and engaging video that has helped countless people find their way to Aussie Home Loans and embark on a journey of home ownership.
