Microsoft’s Xbox department developed a new instant messaging product and was looking to produce a demonstration video to be shown in retail stores across the country. This video would be created by Microsoft’s video production department, yet the company planned to outsource the portion of the job that required creating cutting edge motion graphics and animations. The Xbox team demanded a creative post production company with years of experience in animation and motion graphics.

MAV worked closely with Xbox team to recreate templates, images, and text boxes that would be shown on the Xbox console. Once templates were created, Metro animated text and objects to replicate the results of one using the keyboard to send messages. The client was so impressed by our expertise that they also contracted us to create the music track and edit the piece to the video.
