What is Oxidation?

Aluminum oxidation is no joke, it makes all sorts of appliences and hardware around your home look worn down and dull. Which is why Al-New has come on the scene to restore and protect your home.

However, the oxidation process is not something the general public is aware of, which is why Al-New contacted us to create a quick explainer video for their product.

The Look:

Explaining why and how aluminum oxidizes is a complex system, so we wanted to compliment that with simple and easy to understand visuals. There were a lot of possible approaches and a lot of iterations to play with. However, through all of the questions, one thing was clear. The science had to be accurate.

The Science:

We were able to have a demonstration / Q&A session with one of the lead chemists who works on Al-New. They broke down the process and fielded questions, while we were focused on asking clarifying questions in how this would translate visually.

The Feedback:

Brad immediately had a grasp on what I was looking for and walked me through the process with storyboards, rough motion panels all the way through the final piece.

He took my idea and actually made it quite a bit better than I would have ever imagined.
