3D and Video Post Production
We enjoy creating complex stories and beautiful videos. When a journalist needs “that something extra” in order to visually communicate a message, 3D and special effects are the best choice.

Vanishing History: Protecting the Past
A project for the RFE/RL Belorussian service
The purpose of this project was to show the tragical events that lead to the Chernobyl Disaster step-by-step. Most of the project was created in Cinema 4D (modeling, texturing, animation, particle effects, render etc). Then, another part of the project was created in Adobe After Effects, where we added the texts, illustrative images and 2D infographic of the power plant collapse.
We have also created the whole website for this project -- see more about this here.
3D visualisation of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant:
The Chernobyl project was a big success on social media, for example, it has around 1.5 mil views on Youtube and it was also viewed tens of thousands of times on other social media platforms.
Here you can see the whole video:
A project for the Current Time service
For the anniversary of the tragedy of the Kursk submarine, we prepared an infographic where we combined 3D, animation and put all that to the custom website we created.
Using the data, that we were able to collect, we created a 3D model of the submarine, then in Adobe After Effects, added the explosions, texts, and smaller details needed for informational and visual perfection.
Everything was done in the best quality, so that the video could be used for web, TV programs or other visual media.
A project for the RFE/RL Tatar RU service
For this project we created a whole web page (see here) , but we were in in need of detailed illustrations for some objects which were used by Mari people for their rituals.
Here you can see the process of creating a 3D illustration:
This project wasn't released
A huge project on the finances of the Taliban which was unfortunately never released. For this one we have created a bunch of 3D illustrations, used in a number of videos, which were also post-produced by our team.

Hasn't been published yet
This project was created in cooperation with the RFE/RL Tatar service. We created a video opener for a series of programs about traveling, showing the host of the program in different places around the world.
The video is made in colorful and dynamic way to compliment the overall mood of the show.
A project for RFE/RL Uzbek service
This opener, which was made for the show by a RFE/RL Uzbek service, had to be created as quickly as possible but without loosing any amount of the quality. We retouched the photographs and combined them all in Adobe After Effects. All together, we used about 50 graphic elements which were animated in After Effects.
This project is not published yet
We created this video opener for the show, trying to show the beauty of the lands and the people, living in these lands.

Vanishing History: Protecting the Past
This project was a big challenge for everyone behind it, including ourselves. Our part was to create a reconstruction of the destroyed monastery. It was the first time that we had to work with a real footage, which was filmed from a drone, combining it with a 3D model of a building which is not actually there any more.
This technique is called 'Motion Tracking' and it's being used mostly in the Movies, where there is frequently a need to combine real footage with 2D or 3D pieces. Doing so, we can show the viewers things that do not exist any more, but were created with the help of 3D technologies.
