We create graphics that make complex evidence easy to understand and remember.  Our visuals also make a statement that the facts are on your side and you are fully prepared for trial.  Prior to trial, clear visuals help to validate eyewitness accounts or expert opinions and efficiently inform the legal team of key discoveries. 

Our services include documentation, analysis, and presentation of site conditions, relevant codes, and possible scenarios to support eyewitness accounts and expert  opinions, aid in depositions or mediation, and present in court.   Typically we will we partner with your expert and cost effectively assist them from discovery through final trial presentation.

Case Studies

The following are examples of exhibits produced while working with an expert witness in developing reports and trial presentations.  In addition to 3d visualization, we also produce any charts, timelines, maps, etc. that are needed to support the opinion.  Our services are not limited to creating presentation after an opinion is developed.  The same site documentation drawings created for presentation are an invaluable and time saving tool for the expert in developing their opinion and can be useful in acquiring clear testimony during depositions.

Animated Storyboard of Eyewitness Testimony

An animated storyboard is a very flexible tool during mediation and in preparation for trial.  In an animated storyboard we clearly document key points in the sequence of events, generally based on eyewitness testimony. Once clearly distilled in such a format, the plausibility of an eyewitness account can be effectively evaluated.  If it is determined that a full motion animation is needed, the assets created for animated storyboards can be further developed for that purpose.

 

 


Educating the Jury: Construction Sequence

When making an argument that depends on clearly understanding a complex sequence of events, it is critical to simplify concepts as much as possible.  This is a series of trial exhibits created to educate on the fundamentals of a construction sequence which was critical to the expert witness' argument.  While photos of the construction existed, they seemed to confuse more than clarify, as can be seen in the last frame of this sequence.

 


A picture is worth a thousand words... an animation can be worth much more.
