The North Carolina Bar Association is a volunteer group, comprised of more than 20,000 lawyers, judges, paralegals, and law students. Together they provide public resources to educate and inform North Carolinians on the importance and impact of laws and our legal system.

As a topic relevant to the times, North Carolina’s Judicial System’s independence became a point of debate and confusion to lawmakers and the general public. In pursuit of their desire to inform and educate – we worked together with the NC Bar Association to create an animation showcasing the impact of an independent and balanced judiciary. Through sound design, compelling voice over, and creative direction, we were able to clearly convey the importance of Judicial Independence in a very meaningful and moving way.

The theme of balance drives the artistic style literally and metaphorically. Fairness and impartiality are represented in the verbal and visual balance of black and white and the events changing the balance between the two. Using animation with designed styling details and themes is a beautiful and impactful way to inform and educate.

“When our organization was faced with adjusting from our annual in person fundraising luncheon to a virtual event, we had little experience with hiring a company to produce this level of work. The turning point that inspired us to have faith in Amazing Studios was viewing examples of their other work, their clear connection with our mission, their supreme willingness to flex and bend based on multiple people starring in the video, multiple scripts to craft, multiple filming locations and lots of cooks in the SAFEchild kitchen. They also met a very aggressive timeline. I also had faith they would help us utilize a longer shelf life and therefore return on our investment by separating out pieces of the video in a way that they live impactfully on our website and we use all the time when hosting smaller virtual events or training. I used both of our featured story pieces recently - one when I live streaming to an audience and the other for a community stakeholders convening. That’s two intentional uses in just one week - 6 months after our initial virtual event. We also had the ability to share the video in its entirety to those who could not attend the scheduled first viewing for the virtual luncheon. Your responsiveness was always rapid and on point. We likely wore you out, but you never let that on. You outwardly displayed that we were a top priority and quite frankly that’s what our community’s children deserve.”
