Akima Animated Explainer by Illo and Yes&
Wonderfully low key and earnest explainer video for the Alaskan native-owned Akima corporation produced and directed by the motion crew at Illo in Turin, Italy through Virginia agency Yes&.
From Illo: “Natural textures, breathtaking landscapes, and strong, realistic characters create the world of the Inupiaqs, in a compelling visual journey that prompts reflection.”
“Akima is an enterprise with 30 years of federal contracting experience and over 7,500 employees supporting more than 14,300 native Iñupiat shareholders in the NANA region of Alaska.
“Akima provides the backbone infrastructure to support more than 40 socio-economically disadvantaged small businesses with mature business processes and shared back-office support services.”
