An accountant’s routine is exhaustive, they need to deal with clients, lots of paperwork and numerous conversations. This video shows in a more attractive way, how their routine can be improved by Nibo’s platform.
We’ve partnered with Relâmpago, responsible for the illustration, to create this original video.

Behind the story
Focusing on the details
A big challenge in this animation was the fact that most scenes happen behind the computer. We all know this task is usually too static and because of that we had to overact some of the character’s actions. You can see that we are not only moving finger or hands, but the whole character body – hands, arms, shoulders and head – to build a more dynamic scene.
Not only that, but we also needed to pay attention so each click or typing that appears on the interface had to be simulated on the movements of the character’s hand.
This attention to details make the animation more realistic, even when we are overacting it to make it more dynamic.
Creating the typing animation was a time-consuming task, because we needed to create a rigging – Like bones and muscles – for each finger, in order to animate each one of them isolated. It’s a huge amount of work, but it gives that nice amount of detail that enhances the overall quality of the story.
At the first office scene, we have a moment when elements fill the screen and the table of our character. Some of those objects were solid like folders and boxes, but others were soft like the sheets of paper.
To give a smooth and dynamic movement to the papers we developed a specific structure for them. Doing that we were able to animate all of them together, falling and bouncing at the same time, and giving a more dynamic touch to it.
Frame by frame animation
We always like to use frame by frame animation to enhance the overall animation experience for the viewer. Even when used in small details, our minds perceive them and we fell as if the animation is more real and fluid.
Have you noticed the falling coffee cup? To develop a dynamic movement , we animated the coffee going out of the cup and falling back in, as a way to increase the dynamics and movement of the scene.
We also created frame by frame animations in the transitions between the accountant and his client. A great example is when we use a rotation movement to transit from the client back to the accountant. Working with classical animation is not an easy task, takes a lot of time to refine it but the result is always more than satisfactory.
