This projectwas developed by the University of Missouri – Kansas City, funded by and produced for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The video series was created to bring attention to the goal of eradicating the HIV epidemic, especially in the hardest-hit communities. This series was created in both English and Spanish to make it more accessible to as many people as possible. Bright colors and a fun animation style approach were used in hopes of holding viewers’ attention on a very data-driven subject matter.
“I was excited to be a part of this series that aims to spread important, life-saving information. The biggest challenge in a series like this is making it entertaining, yet still easy to follow. It was a fulfilling project to be involved with, for sure!”

As the global leader in “Design and Make” software for the AEC industry, being at the cutting edge of thought leadership is crucial. Autodesk looked to Viewstream to help craft The Future of Making Things story through a series of videos on complex topics such as Generative Design, DFMA, IoT, Robotics, and their spotlight: Smart Cities. The team at Viewstream took this project from initial discovery interviews to on-site video production at Autodesk offices in Toronto and Boston, through post-production and final delivery.
“An in-depth discovery process is crucial to create successful thought leadership videos. Smart Cities is a great example of getting under the hood of a topic through pre-interviews and then reverse engineering to craft the desired narrative.

Lexus wanted an ultra-modern video to show off the collision assistance feature in its new app. Viewstream created a semi-futuristic 3D environment and made a complete 3D model of a Lexus vehicle to show viewers how the collision assistance feature works.
“The middle section of this video features an interactive sequence where the phone user is performing a number of tasks in the workflow. To make this human-phone interaction sequence look true to life, Viewstream filmed a hand model in our production studio to make sure we get each swipe, each tap, and each gesture. In post-production, we accurately sync the hand movements to the pre-recorded app workflow.”
Prosimo has come up with a radical new way to empower a true multi-cloud infrastructure strategy that allows users to deliver apps that are fast, secure and cost-optimized. As part of the full launch package production, and in addition to being tapped to design and develop the Prosimo.io website , Viewstream was tasked with distilling their technical offering into infographics that could transmit their value proposition cleanly, quickly, and beautifully.
Deliverables: Infographic strategy and design, diagram design, presentation deck design, eBook design, website information architecture, design and development, video and motion graphic production, interactive infographic design and development, interactive assessment design and development, banner ad design.
“It’s always a thrill to work with early-stage technology companies, but the Prosimo launch was particularly engaging. Conceiving of visuals and interactive experiences that communicate complex concepts such as “Application Experience Infrastructure”, was certainly a challenge, but we are incredibly proud of the end result. This project touched almost everyone at Viewstream at one stage or another. It was a full team affair and is a great example of the wide production skillset we offer.”
Viewstream partnered with Verimatrix to rename and re-brand their popular app security offering now known as App Shield. Changing the name from ProtectMyApp to App Shield provided the opportunity to create an explainer video for this SaaS product and assist to re-brand and modernize the brand identity and messaging. Verimatrix App Shield is doing something that no other company in the world is doing — offering professional-grade mobile app protection in a SaaS model. The App Shield video by Viewstream tells this story.
“Communicating about cybersecurity offerings and data obfuscation in a succinct and attention sustaining video required advanced storytelling abilities. The Viewstream creative approach blended 2D and 3D animation, motion-graphics and iconography to reflect concepts like protecting devices across the stack and making available the highest level cryptographic shielding to everyday app developers. Nuanced VoiceOver and a custom audio backing tracks set the mood and kept the pace lively.”

Our team of designers and animators really embraced this opportunity, and ultimately, delivered a fantastic video we are all very proud of!”

Viewstream does Virtual Events
Whether it’s for an audience of millions or a small sales conference, Viewstream creates lasting impressions with our Virtual Events practice. Our practice has grown significantly for clients like Adobe, Deloitte Digital, CDW, ESRI and a lot more. Recently we partnered with MEZ Creative and Intersect ENT to deliver the best experience for all viewers for their annual sales conference, now done online.

The future of work was already leading us toward a more remote working culture, a trend that has only been accelerated by the current crisis. While this steady shift to remote working has its benefits, it has also made it harder to stay connected with coworkers, partners, and customers. This is especially true when it comes to virtual events, which are often viewed as lacking the ability to engage and inform in the way that physical events can.
Viewstream Virtual and Online Events provide the opportunity
to harness the value of physical interaction within a safe, virtual space that
does not require the need for hosts or participants to travel. These virtual
events are not simple live streams, but rather custom-branded experiences
tailored to your specific use case that have the ability to be engaging and
informative in ways that traditional online events can’t match.
Viewstream’s virtual event experience begins with a content blueprint developed based on research into your organization and interviews with employees. Using this blueprint, Viewstream is able to determine the major themes of the event and craft a script that communicates them in the most engaging way possible. Creative elements are then storyboarded and brought to life to convey the desired themes and exemplify the unique style and branding of your organization. Finally, the event is delivered in a live format before being automatically archived and made available for management through a convenient CMS platform.
Viewstream events include a number of features designed to promote security, engagement, and insight. Events are secured through a single sign-on (SSO) system that can be easily integrated with virtually any corporate directory. Q&A/chat modules can be made available to participants and moderated to show only approved content. Live audience polling can also be implemented with the option to show real-time results. During and after the event, your organization will have access to statistics detailing viewership and viewer location, as well as individual viewer tracking functionality.
Viewstream has over 20 years of experience in the virtual events space and is proud to have hosted events for companies such as Microsoft, Adobe, and Autodesk, among others. While nothing can ever truly replace the authenticity of physical interaction, Viewstream’s virtual events provide the next best alternative.
