York-based Presentation agency push the boundaries of what PowerPoint can do

F5 Presentations, with offices in both York and London, were recently asked by a client to create a video for Instagram that would be filled with passion and energy. Manchester-based Jolie Studio were looking for innovative designers and interior architects to join them and wanted to promote the vacancies in a dynamic manner.

Although animated videos for social media accounts are most often produced with software such as After Effects, F5 Presentations decided to take a more innovative route. For Jolie Studio they created a video with Microsoft PowerPoint, designing and animating all the components within it, matching the client’s eye for design and filled with vibrant energy.

F5 Presentation’s Founder and Lead Consultant, Lyndon Nicholson, said: “We chose PowerPoint as the main creative software, not just because we’re experts in it, but because of the freedom it offers. Moving forward, should Jolie Studio wish to change elements within the video, such as wording and background images, they can do so.
“The video was created in the same way we approach all our presentation design work; working closely with the client to understand their needs, taking onboard their ideas, and then creating an impactful visual storyboard.”

Within PowerPoint the agency’s team of designers and developers then applied advanced animation and transition effects before synchronising it to an audio track.

The finished result is incredibly impactful, yet it was produced in half the time as a traditional social video and at a far lower cost to the client. This would allow them time to sift through all the CVs they received as a result.

“I just can’t believe that is PowerPoint”

Franky Rousell from JJolie Studio commented: “We approached F5 Presentations because we’ve worked with Lyndon and team for a number of years now, and felt he knew our business well enough to make something amazing.

“When he told us he was going to do it in PowerPoint we were sceptical at first but were absolutely blown away with the result. We’re all extremely happy with the video which is now proudly sitting on our Instagram page and generating enquiries. I just can’t believe that is PowerPoint.”

She continued “We’ve made our mark delivering jaw-dropping results by combining an eye for awesome aesthetics with new, innovative approaches to delivery. What F5 have delivered matches that thinking.”
