Rocketsig - Our Students' Latest Commercial Project

Our students at Animation Apprentice have just completed their latest freelance commercial project: Rocketsig.  Rocketsig is an email signature product created by Rocketseed, a tech company that offers clickable email banners, with built-in analytics so that a company's email can become an important marketing tool. The purpose of the film is to help their prospective customers understand exactly what it is that Rocketsig will do, so that they can get their message across more quickly and effectively. Animation is a wonderful tool for taking complex ideas and getting them across in a simple, clear way. And this film was a great way for our students to get paid experience of working a live freelance job.

The film was completed under the banner of Nano Films, our fledgling film co-operative which takes on small freelance animation jobs for very low rates. Animators from Animation Apprentice worked alongside animators from Bucks New University, combining forces at our Facebook studio to create an excellent short film.

At Animation Apprentice, we're delighted to be able to help our students find paid work, developing their skills and improving their demo reels. It's also great training for their future professional life, much of which will be spent on client-facing projects, where there is seldom enough time to finish the job as you would like to see it done. But, somehow or how other, you just have to do it anyway.

Congratulations to everyone who worked on Rocketsig for doing such a stellar job.
