Up, Close and Virtual!
HSBC was looking for a unique promotional tool for their debit card offers which could explain how customers could best redeem their points. Classic Retail Imaging Solutions Pvt. Ltd. (resync) created a display with which could cater to all the customers who come to the branches.
The need was to go beyond a display unit with the regular posters or LCD screens and slideshow displaying the offers and instructions, and instead offer a high level of interactivity which would demonstrate, in an easy and simple way the steps of redeeming the points. So the only way out was to bring in an innovative concept with someone actually presenting a product or a service 24x 7 without skipping any of the details and information. Thus the Virtual Mannequin seemed a perfect solution.
A complete story board of expressions and hand movements of the model was created before the shoot as the model’s hand movements needed to be synced with a demo video; this video was later placed next to the model at the edit table. Next, the complete edit was done on FCP (final cut pro) and the offer demo video was created in the form of a flash presentation and was synced with the model movement. Each and every step of the demo video was synced with the hand movements and expressions of the model in such a way as to offer a realistic experience. The model was projected on acrylic cut-outs and the projector unit and the podium, on which the cut-outs were placed, were fabricated in high glossy acrylic with a protective layer. Installation of the units was kept simple and fast. In fact, five mannequins were active in five different locations across India in just 8 days.
The Feedback of the branch managers was positive on all aspects. customers entering the branch were drawn to the display and experienced the complete demo without missing any of the detail of the offers.
