Timelapse Ginger: animated e-Card for CRASH raises over £80K

CDP’s ongoing support for the construction industry charity

Scope of CDP work

  • CDP created the animation pro bono. And it was a pleasure for the team to work on this!
  • We’ve created several e-Cards for CRASH in the past, and the challenge of devising something original, engaging and relevant gets harder each year.
  • Someone within the CRASH team mentioned a gingerbread house.
  • Someone within the CDP team mentioned a construction site timelapse.
  • So, in true partnership, we put the two together and developed the 2021 e-Card, naming it ‘Timelapse Ginger’.

Construction marketing agency

  • After storyboarding and content was agreed with the CRASH team, we used Cinema 4D to build up the animation, firstly in ‘wireframe’ format, then adding colour, texture and lighting.
  • The final version was rendered out in v-Ray. Text and soundtrack was added in After Effects.
  • The 2021 CRASH Christmas card appeal has raised an impressive £81,499.
  • This will enable CRASH charity to continue to construct places that care for men and women who are homeless, and children and adults who need hospice care.
