We produced this is beautiful animation to imagine what BP service stations might look like in the near future. Written and directed by Herio's Steve Bookbinder, we hear the story from the point of view of a woman, Monica, who gently introduces a series planned initiatives (from shopping experiences to fleet management). It's a nice alternative to the 'voice of God' narration that many films use. The animation - produced by Hugh Ip - is highly-stylized with powerful use of colour and lighting effects. The upbeat music reinforces the aspirational and
attractive world the team created.

We removed employees from their traditional work environments - offices, labs, refineries - opting instead to meet them where they were happiest: at home, with family, enjoying their hobbies or, as with Russell Smith, trout fishing in a chalk stream.
This is an excellent technique for humanizing often deeply specialized professionals whilst gently relaying strategic messaging.
