Cartoon Animations

Short video to promote 5 star Google reviews.

This short animated video was used mainly for Facebook promotions, making people aware of the 5 Star Google Reviews for the mental health charity Changes. The video accompanied live text and links within the Facebook posts and received a great deal of organic reach.

This animated cartoon video was created in the very early days of the pandemic 2020. Changes mental health charity had until this point offered face-to-face services and not wanting to lose their vital service during lockdown, they transferred all of their meetings and other services to on-line. The Here4U campaign ran for two years.

The cartoon animated videos above are a great way to grown your organic people reach on social media and to bring life to your websites.  At blink, we can also generate animated gifs which again are a nice addition, bring attention and life to areas of your website and social media messages .
