Famous Frames, Grainey Pictures and Action Against Hunger Team Up for International Women's Day!

Posted March 8, 2019 at 9:15pm

For Women’s International Day, March 8th, Famous Frames Inc, Grainey Pictures and Action Against Hunger teamed up to share with you a story about Hawa, a tribeswoman that has made a difference in the fight against hunger.

Famous Frames, a woman owned talent agency still going strong after 30 years, and Grainey Pictures, a directing sibling team known for their humanitarian outreach, came together to collaborate on a call to action video. The Directors of this project, Megan and Colin, with their award-winning documentary skills, made this particular project a cause we could enthusiastically get behind.

Action Against Hunger is a global humanitarian organization that takes decisive action against the causes and effects of hunger. When it comes to tackling hunger, particularly at the community level, women are among our strongest allies. This is why they choose to get the word out on March 8th, International Woman’s Day. And why they choose women to spearhead this message.

Our beginnings on this project started with finding the right artist. This candidate, had to be a woman that could collaborate, create and execute beyond just drawing. There was no better choice than Renee Reeser-Zelnick. Renee is a seasoned, skilled talent in the creative world. She’s a visionary, taking an initial idea to higher levels on any job she takes on. She was the woman needed to make this project happen.

Tara Aarons, (Famous Frames’ VP) got right to work putting this team together. As another visual artist with years of film production behind her, she jumped to ‘greeking’ markers and sitting in on production meetings to establish the needed shots. The question was; how do we tell a long story in a short time while getting the poignant action across?  The answer was to incorporate a whiteboard style with live action. This video needed to inform and generate donations to the woman that need it most.

The day of the shoot was awesome. We connected with the team at AAH and locked in the right set up. Renee even had her own personal eraser assistant! With days of prep behind us, we got to see the ideas come to life, and hours before Women’s International Day, the video went live.

Thank you AAH, & Grainey Pictures for making us part of a wonderful project we can be proud of.

Medical and Pharmaceutical Art

A spoon full of sugar (and some help from Famous Frames) helps the medicine go down!

 

Often when we hear medical jargon, the majority of us glaze right over. Famous Frames medical and pharmaceutical illustrators are professional artists that collaborate with clients to translate complex information into imagery suited for broad audiences. For medications, hospital care, diet products, skin treatments and much more, our artists employ a variety of techniques to communicate a clear and concise message. 

For instance, in this piece by Micah Ganske, we can see that combined elements of photo composition, 3D rendering and graphics to create a clear picture of what might otherwise be an incredibly complex description of a medical technique:

 

Medical illustrators are visual problem solvers. Their contributions are vital in developmental stages of Medical and Pharmaceutical advertising. From simple imagery like this doctor at work by Alex Lanier

 

Or these images from Nick Randall showing a variety of patient care in a hospital:

 

To more specific and technical images, like this rendering of a body in motion by Lidat Truong

 

The growing need for patients to better understand the state of their health and their medical options is expanding the production of medical information aimed at the public. Advances in graphic and imaging technology are making it easier for clients to relay to consumers what was once abstract, tough to grasp information.

In addition to still imagery, the Famous Frames animatic studio can bring your spot to life with the help of animation and sound. Animatics and Boardomatics can be used by directors to perfect scenes or campaigns before production. Creating an Animatic or Boardomatic can help prevent errors in the stages of production and post production. For more information or to hire an animatics artist please contact Famous Frames.
