Paramount Pictures and Aquifer: A New Production Use-Case

The collaboration with Paramount Pictures represents a powerful use case for Aquifer’s platform; enabling fans to engage with their favorite characters before, during, and after a film's release with near real-time responsiveness. Traditionally, creating custom 3D animated content would require weeks of planning and production cycles. Video concepts would have to be be finalized several weeks in advance to allow for animation time, creating a pipeline of content that isn't responsive to the dynamic conversations taking place in social media. Aquifer's instant animation technology generates high-quality full animated scenes in minutes. From real-time dance trends to engaging fan responses, Aquifer's 3D animated videos brought Bumblebee to life at the speed of today’s social media.

Bumblebee Takes Center Stage: A Fan-Favorite Sensation

Aquifer's animated Bumblebee quickly stole the spotlight, winning the hearts of fans worldwide. Combined, the videos featuring Bumblebee amassed over 7.2 million total views and nearly 1 million likes, solidifying Bumblebee's position as a favorite of Transformers fans worldwide.

With Aquifer, Paramount’s BumbleBee campaign has rewritten the playbook for what is possible in marketing films with Animated and CG characters. Our instant 3D animation platform, coupled with Paramount Pictures' innovative content strategy, helped grow the account to 1.2 million followers and many more millions of delighted fans.
