International Product Manager

I do plan to work more with 3FX in the future. I found the quality of your work to be outstanding, and very customer focused. Your team is professional and went out of your way to meet out needs and make changes.

I was impressed with your knowledge of our disease state, and you demonstrated a clear understanding of both our market and disease state. 3FX had a strong science contribution and met every deadline ahead of schedule.

Our team thinks it’s important to have consistency in an area like this, so that the look and feel of the video stays consistent for our audiences. We share some common disease states with other brads and it makes perfect sense that this is an advantage working for 3FX.

SVP, Branding/ Strategic Director

Please share with your team how fantastic the video came out. I saw in action, at the ASCO booth, and it was clear, dynamic and engaging. Importantly, it fit well within the overall client platform but had a distinct look and feel. I want you to know that I have recommended 3FX to a number of colleagues in other companies that I know have not had such a good experience with their MOA animation partners. Please share this with the entire team.

Director of Medical Affairs, Oncology

Not only have I personally completed MOA projects with 3FX, but my peers have done several as well. We are all very happy with both the work and the people at 3FX.

Global Learning

We have had the distinct pleasure of working with 3FX several times over the past few years and look forward to working with 3FX again. 3FX scientific animation is simply unparalleled. We have used other vendors but never have had results that were even close to 3FX. Their animations are always correct, sophisticationed and elegantly nuanced. I would never consider hiring another 3D animation house- great results, expert, creativity.

Product Manager

Your production process for my MOA animation was very thorough. I enjoyed working with your team and will be utilizing 3FX for future projects.

I wanted to formally thank 3FX for your process, patience and professionalism. Our client’s trade show went like clockwork, and the client was very pleased. Had it not been for the creativity and animation, the booth presentation would have been lack luster at best. It has been our pleasure working with you and look forward to doing more projects with 3FX.


Let me say my experience in working with three FX was amazing. Everybody there is so talented and and there’s so willing to to to make sure that the the clients needs are met.

It has been my pleasure to work with you once again this tear. Thanks for your hard work and professionalism, but most of all your friendship and kindness over the year.

3FX Project Planning Considerations

Prior to the creation of any 3D medical animation project, 3FX recommends that all clients consider the following project considerations. This thought process is a key element for all parties to mutually understand the intended goals, key messages, and budget requirements for a specific 3D animation project.

Where and how will the initial project be viewed? Congress or event, sales representative training or physician meeting, etc.? This will assist in determining the final media and display format. If for use at a congress, we may need booth specs and display system information.

What is the main purpose of the project? To educate peer groups, internal communication, sales representative education & training, investor relations, external marketing?

Who will the primary target audience be? Specialists, Physicians, Patients, Sales Reps, Investors, others?

Length of intended script? (3FX Tip: The average attention span and typical target length is 3 minutes.) Will a script or content outline be provided or will 3FX be required to develop?

What is the target completion date, or first utilization date for the project?

Is there is a preset budget or budgetary range for the project?

Will 3FX be providing storyboards, narration record, custom music & sound effects? Will live action video production be incorporated?

Are there established guidelines for Medical/Legal/Regulatory review? What is the duration for review and approval?

Who will make-up the project team? Will 3FX have access to the scientific research team? This is important if scientific accuracy is to be maintained.

Are there possible additional uses for the original project i.e., website content, physician/ patient version, high-resolution marketing imagery, interactive exhibits/ experiences, AR, VR etc.
